Know More about this tour

We start our 3-hour walking tour at Hanoi’s largest covered market, Dong Xuan. Along the perimeter of the market, dozens of street hawkers sell a staggering variety of produce from live seafood to exotic fruits and spices. Your expert English-speaking local guide will give you an insight into the intricacies and traditions of Vietnamese food culture including details on ingredients and historical backgrounds of popular northern dishes. We eat as we go, trying seasonal fruits and sampling a tasty French-inspired snack from a street cart.
Walking through the maze of bustling streets that make up Hanoi’s Old Quarter, we tempt our taste buds with the famed Hanoi dish Banh Cuon at a local eatery. Watch in awe as the skilled chefs demonstrate for you how this tasty dish is put together. Continuing into the atmospheric heart of the Old Quarter, we wander past street stalls and quiet residential lanes where you can observe local life that has changed little since Hanoi was founded over 1000 years ago.

Our next two snack stops are at outdoor barbecue stalls. We sit down with the Hanoi locals and sample various meat, vegetable and bread specialties that are flame grilled over hot coals for extra flavor. It’s then time for dessert as we venture down a small alley to join in the local tradition of feasting on fresh fruit served in a cup and smothered with crushed iced and condensed milk – this specialty is one not to be missed!

Your local guide will then take you to one of Hanoi’s best kept secrets, a hidden café to drink Egg Coffee . This hard-to-find café is one of the few left in the city that still serves egg coffee, a scrumptious local delicacy that we will sample whilst admiring the hustle and bustle of the city center below. Or, if coffee is not your style, a cold beer awaits!. At the end of the trip you are free to continue exploring the area or your guide will assist you with directions or a taxi back to your hotel.

  • This is an amazing value. For just 25 per person, we spent 4 hours much more than the 2.5-3 hours indicated in the website, sampling a wide variety of food, including a beer, a rice wine and a bottle of water and we even saw several highlights of the old town

  • Wonderful experience. Gigi the tour guide was outstanding - energetic, informative and witty. Seven stops seven great experiences. Excellent value for money.

  • Our guide Rosie gave the best experience of the foods that Hanoi has to offer! I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends whenever they choose to visit Hanoi. A must do when you visit Hanoi!

  • The Hanoi food walking tour was excellent. My guide Sunny was lovely and knowledgeable and provided details on the food/drink that was provided. I would recommend to anyone that is visiting Hanoi to book this tour

  • Awesome!!! Really had a great time! I highly recommend!

  • This was a fun tour, lots of food, large variety and it was great to visit places you never would have on your own. I would have liked a little more information about the food, how it is prepared, why it was chosen as a good representation of Hanoi food, etc. Overall it was well worth it and the guide did a great job.

  • This tour was a great start to our week in Hanoi!! Our tour guide was Annie, a lovely young local who was very well spoken and inclusive of everyone! Our group included many people of different cultures and she encouraged us to introduce ourselves and share our travel experiences which made the afternoon very familiar and enjoyable. We walked to 8 or so locations which we were told are mostly go to places for the locals rather than the tourists - make sure you skip lunch! - and in a few places were invited to try the cooking techniques as shown by the local cooks. It is definitely not a tour of fancy restaurants, but rather small nooks and homes in the old quarter who have perfected recipes over generations. This is definitely a great way to set yourself up for a week's worth of great eats which you will want to keep going back to - she even provided us with a list to remind us of all the places we visited, as well as an extra list of other places to try. 100 recommend!!

  • It is two parents, 12 years old in their 60s, child two of the 6 years old child before proposing it
    In addition because anyone was in condition not to be able to speak English only as for the English guide
    Thought whether was carelessness, but KiWi of the guide
    Make the attention in kindness and in the steep restroom of the child
    That to cope with a smile, and to choose the words slowly, and the explanation is it, too
    Because I did my best to understand, it was saved.
    The shop which I guided is going in the individuals in the shop which is not absolutely good
    is surprisingly cheap for local taste all
    I was able to eat deliciously. Pace to eat first
    But, because seven houses finally went when I ate it up without understanding it
    Finally, I have left it without being able to finish eating a little.
    A shop to go to for a cuttlefish on a tour be performed pricing of by the contents for the tourist
    I knew well whether you were. The space to determine it, and to eat
    According to a Japanese, give an impression of cleanliness, and do not do it, but in an absolute
    There is value to experience. When somebody will go to Hanoi in future
    I want to recommend absolute. It is very kind of you.
