What you'll do

Join me on a journey through Hanoi’s beautiful street food scene. For many tourists Hanoi can be intimidating and hard to explore but I will show you the secret treasures of Hanoi that many tourists may miss or do not get to see. We will start with an egg coffee at a secret and ancient cafe opposite Hoan Kiem Lake.

From here I’ll take you to experience some of Hanoi’s most famous dishes including Bun Oc (noodle with soup), Banh My (bread with pork or chicken, vegetable) and Fruit ice cream (coconut ice cream with fruit), Beer with eggs( cool beer mix red eggs). After we will enjoy a meal at the #1 pho restaurant in Hanoi. To top it off, we will go to drink some Bia Hoi (beer) amongst the locals on the street.

Later at around 8:30 PM we can take a stroll toward Hanoi’s best venues for live music. Here you will enjoy outstanding funky jazz and other genres performed by Vietnam's most talented musicians.
Other things to note
When we taste grab beer on backpackers and beer street, eat noodle soup, fruit mix on small chair on side walk. You should say "Cam on" (Thank You) and "Hen gap lai" (See you again) when necessary :)

I have been working as a tour guide for 8 years, I like to promote ecotourism whilst educating visitors about my beautiful home, Hanoi. Too many historical landmarks in Hanoi are misunderstood or are being destroyed, I'd like to preserve them and educate foreigners about their existence. Hanoi is where I was born, grew up and gave me many memories, I want to share my experiences of this simultaneously ancient and modern capital city. You will love Hanoi, where there are old streets, vibrant eateries, bars, pubs and street food at night. I look forward to making memories for you of Hanoi.

Duc is knowledgeable, kind and engaging. I had the opportunity to have this tour by myself because of COVID travel restrictions keeping many away. I did Duc's morning and evening tour which ended with live Jazz! It was the perfect way to spend the day learning about and enjoying Hanoi. I was exhausted at the end of the day but it was sooooooooo worth it!!!

Duc took me around the most authentic places to try out local Hanoi food and experiences. Every place was incredible. Egg coffee place was beautiful. I bought some coffee from there to later make it myself. Street food was the yummiest I ate in Hanoi. Beer street and ice cream were one of a kind. Best was the ending of experience in the Jazz Club. Every moment felt full of energy and incredible local feel. Duc gives you all the time you want to experience and takes you to all great locations. Highly recommend to start your Vietnam trip with this experience.

Due to health concerns in Hanoi, I was able to enjoy this tour by myself with Duc. Which made it even cooler. He’s a great host and we had a really good time just roaming around his favorite foodie places, which made it seem very personal. Would recommend it to anyone

Amazing! This was one of my favorite experiences in Vietnam. We went to some amazing food spots and ended up turning it into a fun night out. The jazz bar was also really cool! Highly recommend.
