About the tour

We will have a walk in the Old Quarter, Hanoi City, and embrace the beauty of the Ancient Town - this area is literally Hanoi a thousand years ago. Back then, Hanoi, or “Thăng Long” as it was called, was the citadel of Vietnam. The character of this area represents the culture of the capital, and the residents there are considered “The True Hanoian”. Until now, this area is still the biggest trading place and you can buy almost everything there. From the spices for your food to a car, anything you need for your life, you will find it there.

Meet your local guide


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.

Hoàng has been guiding since Sep 2014

I never thought the history of transports could make such a great tour, but I always like things out of beaten track, and this tour delivered. Really got a feel for the place, and of the history of the city. Really enjoyed the scooter tour by the way.
