XIN CHÀO! I'm Phuong. I was born in a small, peaceful village in the north of Vietnam. When I was 18 years old, I moved to Hanoi to study pharmacy at university. 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! 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".

I joined Phuong's experience on day 1 during my time in Hanoi. Seeing as this is a food tour, we naturally ate many things at different locations (some of them I probably won't have stumble upon myself by the way). But she was also super patient showing me around different areas of walking street and gave me tons of recommendations on where else to go later during my week-long stay. This was the perfect introduction to my Hanoi stay and I can't thank Phuong enough. More importantly, she was a wonderful host to just hang out and chat with as well. Absolutely zero regrets joining this tour.

The food tour with Phuong was delightful as an introduction to the vibrant food culture of Hanoi. She was easy to communicate with and happy to adjust foods for my ‘semi-vegetarian’ friend. I especially loved the dried beef salad with papaya and peanuts

Absolutely incredible day, definitely recommend. Phuong was not only lovely she was also very knowledgable and great at communicating before hand. As vegetarians we sometimes struggle to try local delicacies as they often involve meat so it was amazing to have someone to guide us through what we could eat and it allowed us to try local specialities personalised to be vegetarian as Phuong knew what to order. Everything we ate was delicious and it was from places we wouldn’t have wondered into on our own. Phuong also told us about the history of the food and a lot of information about Hanoi and recommendations of where else to visit in the city. We stopped at 6 different places and definitely didn’t leave feeling hungry nor overly full as the portion sizes were perfect. Definitely worth.

Great guide, good food choices. We definitely enjoyed Phuong’s company and would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get familiar with Vietnamese cuisine.

Phuong was friendly and informative and attentive to personalisation (to the extent that I noticed she customised a banh mi for some people on my tour where the cilantro was only concentrated on one half of a baguette!) She also thoughtfully got in touch early before the tour to ensure we could find the meeting place, and also sent recommendations of other specialty food places after the tour on request. I had a lovely time
