About the tour

If part 1 is the quiet stillness of the small streets of Hanoi, then part 2 will bring a completely different view of old Hanoi. We will explore the famous "Hang" streets, each with its own scent, color, and character. All of them carry the imprint of time, the imprint of the trade professions in Hanoi, it marks the rise of Hanoian.

Lê Hoàng / Jude

Over the last 5 years, Hoàng has been a local guide in Hanoi and welcomed thousands of guests to his tours all over the country, and received countless compliments for his hospitality and service. Now Hoàng is bringing his service and Vietnam's coffee to you with this online experience. Hoàng was born and raised in Hanoi City, the heart of Coffee Culture in Vietnam. So he loves coffee by default. Hoàng's father taught him how to brew coffee when he was 6 and since then, he never stopped brewing. Becoming a guide helped Hoàng a lot in improving his coffee brewing skills. He got to know more about the culture and got tips everywhere in Vietnam, from other coffee lovers. And now, he's ready to share his passion with his viewers, fellow travellers and coffee lovers.

The tour was nice until Connor and the cameraman joined and then the tour went off track a little. The cameraman kept getting in the shots and if we weren't seeing that we were looking at Connor a lot. Aside from that, I find on these tours there isn't a clear distinction between when the pre-tour chat is happening to the official start and then the same between the end of the tour and question time. That confused me a bit.

I found that Le Hoang was an excellent tour guide and thought the Irish individual who accompany him was very enjoyable explaining his new life in Hanoi.... the conversations that they were having gave you a good sense of the people . However I found the camera person very annoying and rude plus when I wanted to take some pictures he was right in front. It would be wise for future to make some type of professional arrangements .In future I will just leave the tour if this every happens again on any tour
