Vietnam’s street food is famous around the world, but it can be intimidating for first-time visitors to know what, where and how to eat it. This 3-hour guided tour offers an ideal introduction to Hue’s delicious street food, as you glide around the imperial capital on a cyclo and hop off to tuck into an array of local delicacies.
  • 3-hour street food tasting tour of Hue by cyclo
  • Explore Vietnam’s imperial capital aboard a traditional cyclo
  • Admire the UNESCO-listed monuments of Hue’s Royal Citadel
  • Sample Vietnamese dishes like ‘banh beo’, ‘banh khoai’ and ‘bun bo Hue’
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up, lunch and coffee
  • Get the inside scoop on Hue’s street food scene from a local guide
  • Small-group tour limited to 12 people ensures a personalized experience
Meet your guide at your central Hue hotel, and hop aboard a traditional cyclo (three-wheeled bicycle taxi) to begin your evening street food tour. Accompanied by your guide and small group of no more than 12 people, set out around the streets of historic Hue to discover the city’s most popular street food haunts.

Jump off along the way to sample delicious banh beo (steamed rice discs topped with shrimp) and ram it (sticky rice dumplings), and listen as your guide explains some of the traditional ingredients and dishes of Vietnamese cuisine.

Back on the cyclo, admire views along the Perfume River as you cross the Phu Xuan or Trang Tien Bridge, then glide past the UNESCO-listed monuments of Hue’s Royal Citadel. Stop to try another local specialty, banh khoai (crispy pancakes served with a soybean dipping sauce and fresh herbs) as your guide tells tales of Hue’s imperial history and fascinating heritage.

At the entrance of Dong Ba gate, dig into a steaming bowl of bun bo Hue, a beef vermicelli soup that is a street food staple for locals. Cap it off with another delicacy – egg rice crackers with beef or pâté on charcoal – served at a small snack shop nearby.

With your appetite sated, head into the pavilion of the Royal Citadel for a post-dinner cup of herbal tea or Vietnamese coffee, while enjoying views over the Imperial City. Finally, jump back on your cyclo for the return trip and end your tour back at your hotel.

The guide was wonderful. He taught us things about Hue that our guide from our trip never said. The food was amazing not like the food at the hotel which was made for westerners ie: bland. We really tasted Vietnam. Excellent., Viator thanks for a great time.

Van was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable about Hue and Hue cuisine. The tour allows one to get a true taste of Hue cuisine. I would strongly recommend this tour for anyone in Hue.
