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

Whether you are with friends, traveling as a family, or flying solo, you'll be in excellent company in a warm, welcoming atmosphere with a LOCAL friend. This experience will let you live, feel & breathe the real Hanoi as you were a Hanoian. We start our journey by tasting the best dish in the city and then hearing tales of the Vietnamese language and the Vietnam War.

     Immerse yourself in Vietnamese culture as we walk through the Old Quarter and visit sites known only to locals (the tiniest and longest alley and a hidden temple). We will try up to 8 delicious dishes: Bun cha, Banh mi, Bun bo, Vietnamese sticky rice, sugarcane juice, Banh Cuon, King Rotti, dessert, and the famous egg coffee. All are unique to Hanoi. The tour is an excellent combination of tasting food and understanding history, culture, and lifestyle!

     It is not just a food tour, but you will learn so much more about Vietnam’s history, culture, and language. It is a small group tour ❤ so make sure that you'd be able to ask so many questions for me!

  VEGETARIAN dishes are available, and please contact us in advance.

  I am sure the experience will be enjoyable and informative!

  I can’t wait to see you.

Very good walking tour based around the Hanoi old quarter with great little stops to try some of the local dishes! Huyen was great fun and explained everything very well and I liked that we were a small group as it allowed us to all communicate with our our guide as well as each other! Would recommend and look forward to doing more guruwalks around the globe!

I had such a great time with Huyen learning about the different types of food. With a combination of learning about history, and culture along with different ways of how to make the food. This was such a unique experience. I highly recommend!

Huyen is such a lovely, bubbly girl. She welcomed us very warmly and showed us some interesting corners in the old quarter with lots of information about local life and culture. The places she picked for food were very good and other than one dish everything was new to me. She's very easy to talk to and showed some genuine interest in us as well. Thank you so much, Huyen :)
