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 not really a local food tour. We went to quite expensive restaurants, we expecting more local hidden places that you wouldn’t necessarily find or go to as a tourist.

Alex was a great guide very friendly and knowledgeable. Accommodated that one of us was vegan but also one of us wasn't so had a mix of things, adapted the tour based on our likes and also got to know us. Definitely recommend this tour and thank you Alex

Phuong is a lovely guide! I really enjoyed my very private tour and learning about the history of some of the most famous dishes of Vietnam. It was also really helpful as some of the dishes usually aren't vegetarian, but can be made that way.

Phuong (phoenix) was very easy to talk to. Her English was the best out of all the tours I've taken in SE asia. She did her best to answer the many questions I had about pricing of street food and the cooking techniques used. She's a top guide! 👏

The tour was amazing. I enjoyed the food so much and the time spent with Phượng. She was very attentive, she made sure to plan the tour taking into account my alimentary requirements. Her English is really good, which made it easier to communicate and more pleasant the tour, and of course to have great conversations around the restaurants, the dishes, the traditions, the city… I definitely recommend this tour with Phượng, and to revisit the restaurants!
