One day as a local in Hanoi

Julie was a great guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Tour was very well thought out. Highlight was pedaling through Hanoi traffic! Just the right amount of thrills threading between the scooters, pedestrians and shopkeepers.

Sally Manh

Farm tour & Cooking in Hanoi with local family

Manh is a fantastic guide, speaking perfect English. She met us in a market 20 km outside Hanoi and we were the only tourists there, then we walked through the farming area talking to locals working on their plots, getting an insight into their way of life. We arrived at her home where we cooked a meal together which we sat down and ate with her husband and two beautiful daughters. It was the best food I had in Vietnam and being welcomed into her home was very special. I would really recommend experiencing Manh’s tour as it was the only part of our trip that was off the tourist trail.
