Xin Chao! I am Huyen. I was born and raised in Hanoi. My passions are always traveling and getting to know fascinating places, meeting people from all over the world, and experiencing top gastronomy linking food and cultures. Over the past few years, I have travelled across Vietnam from ordinary places to exotic spots like Ha Giang and Ca Mau, known as the Northernmost & Southernmost points, and many more! Vietnamese food has an unique identity and varies in different parts. Believe it or not, northern, middle, and southern food is tasted differently. Also, I have been tried all the top Vietnamese food nationwide and ready to relay all of my knowledge and expertise to you. Are you ready to come along with me? I can't wait to show you the city that I love. Cheers!

Tour description

If you have a short time in Hanoi but still want to enjoy this city like a PRO, we are here as your gurus. Wandering around the unique ancient area, you will get lost in a totally different world from the rest of the capital and discover things you haven’t seen in your life: the smallest alley, or some hidden spots which are far from tourist's eyes, the top of the Old Quarter, the fine art cafe with lots of history and stories behind and so many more!
Please keep in mind that this is a bit more PRICEY than the other free tours. You will pay for yourself:
1. A beer at the rooftop bar (60,000 VND ~ $2.5)
2. A cup of Vietnamese coffee (35,000 VND ~ $1.5)

Cong was amazing. Good English level, showed us the main aspects of Hanoi history and yet, kept it short. Gave us some valuable info about what to eat and where. One of the best walking tours I've attended.
