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".

The food and the different stops were nice. Unfortunately, our tour guide was not good. His English skills were not enough for guiding people. We had sometimes difficulties understanding him. Also he did not really provide enough information during the stops we made. Probably the tour is better with another guide.

Prima di iniziare il tour, ho ricevuto un messaggio dalla guida con una richiesta minima di 10$ a persona e l’invito ad annullare in caso non fossi disposta a pagare. Il principio di un free tour è basarsi sulla soddisfazione e dare un contributo LIBERO. Pretendere un prezzo minimo è una frode e una pubblicità ingannevole.

We had a great time with our tour guide Bob! He was so sweet and showed us a lot of typical dishes of Vietnam and we had so much fun! At the end we walked around the streets of this amazing city and talked about culture and history together. Totally recommended! 😊
