Dear walker, My name is Nhung, a local tour guide from Hanoi. I was born and raised in Hanoi. I have a great love for our ancient capital city. I graduated from the University of Languages and International Studies. I then had two more degrees and certificates of licensed guide and culinary course. My passion is being a guide and meeting friends from all over the world to show you the beauty of my home city through famous sightseeing and hidden gems of the city. I love culture, local cuisine, and architecture. Besides classic tours to visit the must-sees of Hanoi, I also tailor my unique street food tour, warsite tour, and hidden walking tour as well. I would be so grateful to be your local ambassador. Come and join my tour, you will then be a true local expert.

Tour description

Best ultimate street food tour: hidden authentic restaurants + stories+ culture.

My special tour is off the beaten track.
Join me to try very special snacks and street finger foods never listed on any food tour around Hanoi.
You will walk through many backstreets and hidden alleyways in the old quarter, hitting all the food stops along the way and learning about the history and culture of Hanoi.
This is the best way to learn about Hanoi's Food, Culture, and lifestyle as you could dive into the tiny alleys to explore where local people live, work and eat.
On my tour, we not only try the best local specialties but also have a deep understanding of local lives and culture through small houses, alleys, and local markets.

The highlights of my tour:

- 100% authentic foodie experience
- The ultimate food experience from North to South styles
- All local drinks, coffee and desserts 
- Hidden gems of the city & some of the food only on my tour

Es war eine interessante und sehr informative Tour, die uns gut gefallen hat. Neben Infos zum Essen hat uns Nhung viele Informationen über das Leben in Vietnam gegeben. Die Lokale waren außergewöhnlich, hätte man selbst so wahrscheinlich nicht aufgesucht. Klare Weiterempfehlung.

Nhung is a hidden gem in Hanoi! She made the street food tour a lot of fun while keeping our preferences in mind. She took us to places we would have otherwise not known of. We got to try out various local specialities while she explained nuances of the local tastes & flavours. Also sometimes describing a bit of the history associated with the food & place. Would definitely recommend her for trying out things beyond the ordinary. Thank you Nhung for making our trip fun & interesting!

Had the best time during the food tour! The food was so tasty. We tried a lot of different vietnamese dishes! Nhung shares a lot of information and adapts the foodtour to your wishes. If you are in Hanoi and want to have an authentic (like the locals) food experience than try the food tour that Nhung offers!! 😃
