Traveler Tips

This tour is slightly on the more expensive side since it's a private tour, but I personally felt it was worth it to be able to move at our own pace.
A must-do in Hanoi - food tour guide, Lee, will stop at nothing to deliver a world-class dining and cultural experience!

So much fun!
Jodie_V, Mar 2023
We booked this Hanoi street food tour and it was lots of fun! We had Edward (the vampire) as a guide and he is very social so it’s not awkward at all. We tried lots of good food - pho, bun cha, summer rolls, spring rolls, egg coffee and other great stuff!
A wonderful evening!

My husband and I did this tour with 2 of our friends. Our guide was energetic, knowledgeable, and attentive. She made sure to meet us and understand our expectations and any food interests or challenges we had. Each spot we visited was delicious and just the right amount of food. She was able to answer all our questions, even those that weren't necessarily related to food. She also was very sweet and made the evening a pleasant and welcoming experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our night and would recommend this to anyone.

Chris' tour was a great way to start our trip. He is very knowledgeable, and we learned a lot about culture in addition to the cuisine!

Mint, my guide, was knowledgeable and interesting. We had delicious street food and really good conversation. I liked just about everything. We went for egg coffee but I don’t drink coffee late in the day - so I had egg beer !!! It was much better than it sounds😊
A great evening trip around the food establishments. And we definetly didn’t want it to end.

Mint our guide, whom we connected with straight away and helped us enjoy the experience. With her knowledge and social skills. Thank you Mint.
Amazing food experience!
PATTY, Jan 2023
Minh was an amazing guide. He was so concerned with showing us all traditional Vietnamese foods. We had not tried before all the foods were exceptional, and seeing so much of the old quarter was a bonus. We felt like we were with a good friend as he seemed truly concerned that we were happy with all his choices.
This tour was the best...

This tour was the best end of 2022, it was a great tour, it’s recommended when visiting hanoi, Luke our guide was fabulous, he did a create job and we really loved it.
A treat that will long be remembered.
Albert_P, Jan 2023
We were so fortunate to have Mint as our guide. She was polite, warm and very knowledgeable about life and food in Hanoi. Her English was good and she is a real communicator. She introduced us to simply amazing food and filled us in on the history of the dishes too. She has given us the confidence to return to the streets by ourselves to enjoy street food. Mint showed us the very best of what Hanoi’s street cooks have to offer. After the tour she sent us notes on what we had eaten and where. Superb. Many thanks.
Excellent tour with Minh
Jody_K, Dec 2022
Minh was the best! We enjoyed the food, cultural tips and insight! Would highly recommend! Thanks so much Minh for telling us to look up and see the beauty as well as all of the great food!
We met our guide Linh in...
Christopher_T, Dec 2022
We met our guide Linh in the hotel lobby. She took us to several places. We ate a papaya and mango salad, Bun Cha, Bun bo hue, fried banana and jackfruit, donuts, coconut ice cream with sticky rice, banh mi, and coconut coffee. We were stuffed at the end of the tour. The choices and food we ate were all delicious. Best of all was our tour guide. It felt like we were with a great friend or family that was taking us out to show us the best of Hanoi. Our food was exceptional, but our time with Linh made it a great memory. I highly recommend this tour.
Kicked off our first day in Hanoi with a bang!
Annie_F, Dec 2022
Our guide Patrick was a great fit for our family (4 adults). He was energetic and fun. He explained everything to us from cooking, history of Hanoi, culture, food preparation, Vietnamese lifestyle and on and on. Lots of great dishes. One of our favorites was the crispy beef salad.
The best way to experience street food in Hanoi
Ana_S, Dec 2022
We had a really fun night with Ed. The food was incredible and the stories about the culture and history of the city were a great addition as well. 10/10!
Excellent time with Linh
Benjamin_P, Dec 2022
Excellent tour with Linh. She is truly a foodie and knows all the hidden secrets of Hanoi street food. Linh was very detailed, checking what we had already tried and brought us for new experiences. Had an awesome time!
Great street food tour from Linh
Will_S, Dec 2022
Linh was a fantastic guide and took us to a huge variety of different food stops, even tailoring it to our specific tastes and considered what we had already tried. Very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about Hanoi and the history of some of places we visited.
Perfect way to taste amazing street food
Adriana_L, Nov 2022
Our guide Lee was extremely knowledgeable and took us to some incredible food places! We loved all the places so much we attempted to go to each of them again during our 6 day stay to enjoy full portions! Big tip - go with an empty stomach. We visited 8 places and had smaller portions to enjoy!
Excellent food tour
Kacie_Y, Nov 2022
We did this tour on our first night in Hanoi, and it was a great way to get a feel for city! Mr. Ha was a fun tour guide who we enjoyed talking to. He showed us some amazing dishes we wouldn’t have known to try without him! All the food was delicious!! Definitely come hungry as you will try a lot of different foods along the way !
LOVED this Hanoi food tour with Chris!
Hope_E, Aug 2022
We had a free evening during our tour of Hanoi, so we decided last-minute to book a food tour. SO glad we did! Chris was very knowledgeable about Vietnamese/Hanoi food and his passion for "all things food" was infectious. Super nice guy! And he brought us to places he has eaten at his whole life: the best pho, bun, rice pancake, egg coffee and more. Definitely book this tour!
