Great guide. Great time. Great food. Would gladly do again with another first-timer in Hanoi.
The best way to experience the street food in Hanoi, especially in old quarter area. Our guide, Nguoc was really funny and informative. He even treated us free beer! One of the best experience. Really recommended!
I booked this just before leaving Australia, being our first night in Hanoi, it was wonderful introduction in experiencing the Vietnamese food and culture
Our guide Anh was amazing, and as well as the food tour she should us extra sights and shared information along the way
A definate do
Excellent tour! Our guide, Anh, was very knowledgeable, friendly and funky. She was able to answer all our questions really well.
Great way to eat a bucketload of good, local food and see what the locals do.

We thoroughly enjoyed this walking/eating tour of Old Hanoi.
Lee our guide spoke pretty good English and was knowledgeable and informative. We tried more than we would have on our own - Vietnam's street food is more 'street' than Thailand's where we were happy to eat. We were also given the opportunity to try some unusual food but all bar one we declined much to the amusement of all. :-
We ended up at a coffee shop with a rooftop terrace overlooking Lake Ho Hoan Kiem. We would not have found this on our own and it was a treat.
All in all this was a great intro to the old quarter of Hanoi and some of the Vietnamese street culture.
what a fantastic food tour,have done a few off these around the world and this has got be one off the best , helped by are great guide Thoa , there were only four off us on this tour which made it a bit more personal.
Thoa took us to some great street food vendors which we would not have found if we were on are own
and also would not off tried some off the great food we tried, my highlight was the street food bar b q, which was delicious, though i must admit i did not try the grilled frog, but a couple who were with us did try it.
at the end off the tour Thoa took us to a secret cafe overlooking the lake , which again we would never have found on are own , i tried the egg yolk coffee which was fabulous
if you are a foodie i would recommend this trip
The tour was great! Our guide, Ching, was friendly and knowledgeable. All the dishes we tried were delicious and very good value.
Good variety of places visited. Great final stop with view over lake.
This was definitely a great experience and value. We got an incredible walking tour and so much delicious food and insight into the culture. I'd highly recommend!
I am Vietnamese American and I really enjoyed this tour. I brought my New Zealand, American, and Taiwanese friend, and they all loved it. We had banh mi delicious, rambutan yummy, banh cuon BEST, BBQ so much fun! decent, lots of meat, fruitcondensed milk desert sweet, delicious, and egg coffee super sweet, too late in the night for coffee, but fun to try. Would recommend to any of my friends. Best way to get an intro to the city, especially if you're shy about going to street food stands on your own. The food is well-prepared so no need to be afraid!
Very knowledgeable and entertaining guide, good composition of the group. And the food was all the way through excellent. Took very good care of my spouse's dietary restrictions.
Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. We got to eat in places we would not have tried on our own.
This was a fantastic tour. Lee was a really generous and thoughtful guide. Really was a highlight of our tour.
Thoa was an amazing guide.
His tour was much more beyond the food, he made us understand the culture, the people and the city. And most importantly, he show us how to cross the roads!
I recommend you to do this tour in your first day in Vietnam.
THANK YOU THOA...
A true experience of Hanoi, eating with the locals and seeing the amazing way of life. This tour is a must do!!!
An excellent taster of Vietnam. The tour started with a taste of street food in the form of a pork baguette and proceeded to take us through a variety of cuisine in places we would not have found ourselves. The guide had excellent english and took into account the fact that the group included people of all ages. The highlight for us was probably the bbq including pork, chicken, tofu and frog, though my daughter was a big fan of the egg coffee!

Review Hanoi walking Tour
This was our first organised tour in Vietnam, we have several booked, they have a lot to live up to.
Our guide Thanh, a friendly young looking 28 year old, was an encyclopaedia of local information. What we discovered on our first night would have taken months to glean as tourists. The secret coffee house with the amazing view would never be found if you didn't know.
The street food BBQ 's bread, fruits and deserts were excellent, and if you are a tad more daring, that is catered for too. I tried silkworm larvae and frog for the first time, both were quite enjoyable. We also had barbecued meats and other local delicacies.
This is highly recommended, advise you to do it on you first night if possible. This set us up for 4 more nights of excellent cheap street food and good ridiculously cheap beer.
If you love to try and taste different food, than this is it. Friendly and relax people, good food and just an amazing experience.
Really enjoyed the Hanoi street food tour with Thanh. It was great to have the chance to try things you wouldn't think to ask for from street vendors you may be cautious to buy from on your own. He assured us with the food health and safety of everywhere they take you. We especially enjoyed the pancake and watching them make the rice paper. We were so full by the BBQ at the end but it was just so delicious we ate it all! Loved his own dipping sauce he makes too! Was great being shown the secret cafe to end the night overlooking the lake. Thanh made sure everyone got on their way home safe, calling taxis and taking photos of the cars for extra safety. We were really impressed. He recommended further bars for us to continue our night after the tour had finished. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you!
Such a great tour to do, I feel like you can't go to Hanoi/Vietnam for the first time without doing something like this. The food we tasted was incredible and our guide was great too. I spoke about this tour to a couple of my friends already. Thank you so much!
This was the best food tour we went on during our eighteen day multiple countries trip. Our tour guide was amazing! I loved that he showcased the culture of Hanoi along with the food. You could really tell he loved doing the tours and also Vietnam. My favorite stop was eating bbq on the street. The honey bread was amazing. He also gave us advice on crossing the street which is invaluable in Vietnam :
We enjoyed this more than anything else we did in Hanoi; an awesome idea for your first dinner or any dinner!
Loved this Street Food Walking Tour. The guide I believe was either Thanh or Hoang Le... sorry. Strolling through the old city along the railway tracks was unbelievable. Mingling and tasting the fresh fruit sold by the market vendors was exceptional. Sampling and eating the local food prepared by the local food vendors was fabulous. The food was scrumptious. The guide was super friendly and fun. Great time and great tour. Thank you.
