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".

Louis is a very pleasant guide who takes the time and knows a lot. He shows that he enjoys what he is doing. Our only comment is that the distance between the first and second restaurant was a little long (for us). But overall we had a great evening!
