XIN CHÀO! I’m Phuong I was born in a small, peaceful village of Vietnam. When I was 18 years old, I moved to Hanoi to study. Now I’m living in Hanoi and have worked as a tour guide for 5 years. I love to spend time discovering architechture, culture, history and "good food" in the best restaurants in Hanoi, and I have to say, "WOW, how wonderful Hanoi is". I always want to share my passion about Hanoi with people from all around the world. Not only the “regular tour”, we’ll chat like truthly friend to make sure you will have a authentic and local experience. Besides, I'll also be happy to listen to your story about your journey. It will be a genuine connection; there is no border between us! THAT’S FOR NOW. SEE YOU AT THE WALKING EXPERIENCE! It's me or my Guru will be your tour guide in my experience. We're the same, love showing our amazing Hanoi. Monthly, I spend a part of my salary on a volunteer organization that built schools in a mountainous area in Vietnam. Cause I always believe in Nelson Mandela's speech: "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world".

It was a great and fun tour with Phuong. I had the pleasure to be alone with her. She even adjusted the tour a bit for me because I am gluten-free.

My guide was fantastic and really friendly. He took meto some really good spots, and made sure i tried new foods! My one complaint: the company didnt let me know that Id be taking the tour totally alone (i signed up the same day ofthe tour). Had I known I likely would have cancelled. I was hoping to be with a group sothat i would have the option of sharing some foods and tasting more- but it ended up being just me :( The guide had planned to have 3 full meals and a dessert and a beer. I knew right away it would be impossible for me to eat that much, so we cut the tour down. It might still be great for a lot of people, butfor me it ended up being a very different experience from whati was hoping. If you want to avoid having the same situation, Id just recommend asking a few hours before the tour to make sure that youll have a couple other people with you and more possibilities to share :D

I would recommend everyone to try this tour with Phoenix. She was really nice, helpful and accommodating. I was concerned about how many of the dishes would be good, as I must say I can be a little picky sometimes. Well, it was just amazing. All what we try was delicious. One dishes can be more your thing or less depending on the texture and so on. But overall, the food was really tasty. We will come back again to a couple of the places we went with her, for sure. We loved the Vietnamese seafood pancake… such a explosion of flavours in your mouth! The tour is more focused on the food, and although Phoenix told us some good facts and stories about the Vietnamese culture, this is not a tour about sightseeing. Just that you are aware of it. But if you want to experience traditional delicious Vietnamese food, you will not be disappointed 😉

Definitely recommend the tour. It is not only about the food, which was delicious, but all the whys, hows, whens, and the whole context to it… Phượng (Phoenix) was a great guru, and altough i was the only one, we had fun. I appreciate she did not cancel and still kept the tour for me!
