Xoi Hoang Private tour guide in Hanoi - Vietnam

Xoi Hoang

Guide profile:

Hello my dear Friends! This is Xoi, I am a passionate, Vietnamese travel guide with a strong desire to inspire!

Who I Am?

Despite being born in the remote village of Tay in Northern Vietnam, I have been lucky enough to travel the country. As I travel, I grow by learning the customs and cultures of the people I meet and challenging my own assumptions along the way. Travel should be full of wonder, laughter, and sleeping under the stars.

Why do i work for?

Personally, my favorite activities include trekking, biking, kayaking and cooking but I'm always keen to try something new. After a long time working in a travel office, I decided to make a change and focus on what I really wanted to do in life. The idea to start my own company struck me while I was sitting under the roof of a meditation house in a Siem Reap Pagoda. It was my first time exploring Cambodia, Laos and Thailand and I realised that I had simply fallen in love with travel. I decided then and there that I wanted to spend my life creating unique and happy trips that would inspire others in the way that my own travels had inspired me.

Over the years Me and My Team has grown and I've gotten to travel extensively around Vietnam with both local and international guests. The people that I've met and the places that I've seen are unlike anything I could have imagined. Vietnam is a magical place.

Why us?

When it comes to designing trips, we are able to cater to the guest's specific interests and needs. You can decide the type of activities that you would like, or you can ask our team for some suggestions. A lot of our guests opt to see some of the more remote locations that Vietnam has to offer, and we are only too happy to oblige! We can take you to breathtakingly beautiful places, where you will get to interact with local people as they go about their day in their local villages. We guarantee that we can put together a rich experience for you that you will never forget. We are committed to travel that minimizes the harmful impacts of travel and promotes positive change on the local people and environments that we visit. Whenever possible, we choose small, locally-owned accommodation and homestay options, eat in local restaurants and encourage our guests to explore the markets. We also try to use transport that minimizes fuel consumption and pollution such as exploring by bicycle, river boats or using public transport.

Join me and my team for our great adventures!

With peace,

Xoi Hoang (Jenny)

Xoi (Jenny) is an excellent, knowledgeable, and charming guide. Engaged her for one and a half days: full day around Hanoi (in private car) and then half day walking/food tour. I made a request to see the food/wet markets and taste some local street food. Went to four stalls, all except one where I'm the only foreigner so some really local places to eat. All in all, fun and enjoyable experience. I prefer private tours vs. being bused around and Jenny is just great. Highly recommend!

Just had a great ½ day tour with Jenny around Hanoi, she collected me from the airport, provide a fun tour around many of Hanoi’s central attractions, we grabbed a great meal, and then went shopping. She then arranged my return back to the airport. Really great price, and a lovely host. I would recommend.

The first thing to say is that Jenny Hoang is a lovely person to be with all day, she was bright and smiling and made us feel like her friends from the outset. She displayed a good knowledge of the areas we visited in Hanoi and was also able to compare Hanoi to the other cultural areas throughout Vietnam. All in all we had a fantastic time in Jenny's company and we would highly recommend her to anyone who plans to visit Hanoi. Thanks Jenny, we hope we didn't bore you too much. Neil, Karen & Luke
