Who we are:
Vietnam Backstreet Tours has been founded by 3 young Hanoian who were born after Vietnam War & growing up under the subsidized era (“coupon era”) before Vietnam opened the door to the World. The memo of rising up from Russian style Apartments, small back alleys just enough space for only 2 people walking or “black market” is always in our beautiful childhood. With different background of business but we all love Hanoi and decided to create a tour with different ways to explore the Real Hanoi.
This tour is focus on Learning & Discovery experiences for travelers who want to see the Real Lives in Hanoi. Not like many tour companies just showing Hanoi with beautiful famous touristic places, we’d love to Experience you the Living museum of Hanoi with the Good- the Bad & the Ugly though your 5 senses.
