Know More about this tour


Meet up with your local guide, then dive straight into Hanois culinary scene with a visit to Dong Xuan, the largest covered market in the city. Along the perimeter of the market, dozens of street hawkers sell a staggering variety of produce, from live seafood to exotic fruits and spices.
After exploring the market, walk through the maze of bustling streets that make up Hanois Old Quarter, tempting your tastebuds 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. Your next stop is a stall selling bun cha, a classic Vietnamese dish served with grilled fatty pork (ch) over a plate of white rice noodles (bn) and herbs with a flavoursome dipping sauce. Be sure to save some room as youll soon be tucking into grilled nem chua, a fermented pork roll, and a fresh fruit salad, two of the most well-known snacks in the city.
Your local guide will then take you to one of Hanois best-kept secrets, a hidden caf with stunning views over the picturesque Hoan Kiem Lake. This hard-to-find caf 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 centre below. Or, if coffee is not your style, a cold beer awaits! At the end of our Hanoi tour, you are free to continue exploring the area or your guide will assist you with directions or a taxi back to your hotel.

    Ninh our tour guide was so knowledgeable, friendly and informative. We walked many streets in the old quarter discovering local Vietnamese cuisine all with a story and many facts about the local ways and lifestyle. The highlight was the roadside beer with a local who brewed his own. Just amazing smells, tastes, variety and friendly chats. Thankyou Ninh we would recommend you to anyone and everyone!
