This the second time I have done Junie's Food on Foot Tour - first time in 2018 with my brother in law, this time with my wife. It was brilliant just like the first tour, and we went to different places for food. Junie helps you understand the food, and how it is relevant in Vietnam. And you have so much more confidence in ordering local food afterwards. Great tour, great guide!

Junie was an excellent guide. Her English is top notch. She was knowledgeable about the tour and provided tidbits of interesting history. She made our group of five feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to all my friends and family. I wish you all the best Junie! Thanks again!

It was a perfect tour and I am saying this as a local guide myself, travelling with a true Italian chef! It was true fun! Best way to get in touch with local culture and way of eating, which may appear weird to people coming from different parts of the world.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience walking around Hanoi's Old Quarter with Junie. We enjoyed soup (Pho) shops, had Bun Rieu Cua, experienced beer on the street (Bia Hoi). She found for us one of the best local places to try Bahn Mi (a wonderful sandwich made with local French bread, pate, and various fresh vegetables). She had us weaving in and out of many small alleys to get to our next destination that my wife and I probably would not have gone down. Big thumbs up again for Junie!!

Thank you Junie for a fun and exciting tour of Hanoi. Our three generation group of 6 all enjoyed our day with Junie seeing historical sites and the Old Quarter. We tasted many foods as Junie got us in and out of several restaurants in the Old Quarter we never would have tried on our own. She made sure everyone was comfortable and happy. I highly recommend Junie.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Julie & your family! It was nice to meet your family in vietnam and had fun time in Hanoi on busy Christmas day All best wishes to you & your family If you return to Hanoi, please let me know Junie

Junie is a sophisticated, energetic, and wonderfully entertaining guide. From political economy to pop culture, Junie is in the know. Generous, flexible, and a fabulous companion, Junie charmed and informed by family-of-four, teens to senior-os... Each of us adored this learned and kind Hanoi tour guide. Great eating spots, unexpected places, and the top-spots: We only wished Junie covered every other place on the planet.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bill, Thank you very much for your sharing! It was my plesure to meet you and your family in Hanoi and had a great day together! Wish all the best for your family! We have to see again in the future Cheers, Junie

Junie is a Hanoi native with vast knowledge of the city and surrounding areas. Her English is excellent. She has a very sunny personality and is an absolute delight to spend time with. We highly recommend her for tours of Hanoi by foot and other longer day trips that necessitate a vehicle which she can easily arrange. She really helped us gain insight into the daily life of Hanoi residents and we are very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet her.

Junie took us on a wonderful nighttime street food tour of Hanoi's old quarter in February 2019. Food was outstanding—we made five different stops including an old back alley 2nd floor coffeehouse featuring egg coffee and filled with lively young people.. But highlight was Junie herself: lively, self-possessed and knowledgeable. Told us a lot about young women's working lives and Hanoi culture.

Junie was a wonderful guide. "Mr. Buddah" likes her bubbly personality. She took us to the main attractions but we also got to experience local life and culture. She took us through the streets of Hanoi to local markets and help cross the streets with crazy traffic. The cyclo ride through the old quarters was so much fun. We got to have egg coffee at Café Dinh and she arranged a massage at a nice spa. It was nice to have our own private boat in Halong Bay. Overall we all had a great time with Junie.

In Hanoi, my Tour By Locals guide was Junie. Junie was very knowledgeable about Hanoi. Junie helped create a customized tour of Hanoi for me. My half day itinerary included coffee at Giang coffee, a cyclo around the Old Quarter, a water puppet ticket, a taxi to visit Ho Chi Minh complex. Junie joined me for dinner at Cha Ca La Vong. I had an enjoyable evening. I would also strongly recommend Junie as a guide.

It was a real joy to have Junie as my guide for the Hanoi City Tour! The tour gave me a great deal of insight into the history and culture of, not only the city but, the entire country. My love and appreciation of the people of Vietnam has been confirmed as a result of this time spent with Junie. She is very knowledgeable and delivers the information in a way that is very engaging. I can't recommend this tour and Junie highly enough. I also appreciated the driver (sorry I forgot your name). Thanks Junie!!

What a fantastic and memorable afternoon with Junie! Although this was not our first visit to Vietnam the Food on Foot tour was not only full of great food but also really educational and helped us understand more about Vietnamese food - and definitely changed what I what we started ordering in restaurants. Junie was also great fun a lovely host. I would not hesitate to recommend both this tour and Junie to anyone visiting the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tim, Thank you very much for your sharing! It was great to travel with you guys and had a lot of fun together All the best for you guys, Cheers, Junie

Junie put together a great three day package for our time in Hanoi, and my family and I could not have been more pleased. She speaks English very well and is just a really wonderful person - great fun to be with. Took us to some amazing local eateries we would never otherwise have tried and recommended a day trip to see the mountain pagoda, rivers and caves in Ninh Binh which was a highlight of our Vietnam trip. Can't recommend Junie highly enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John, Thanks for your sharing, I am happy that you enjoyed the tour with me. Good luck for your family! Your friend, Junie
