Itinerary
Pass By:  
Dong Xuan Market
In Hanoi, street food is our life. There is a huge difference between the food here and the other cities in the world: you would know exactly the ingredients of the dish and the seller make it in front of you, it must be fresh and hot! That is the reason why we bring you to the local market, you will get a deeper understanding of the local lifestyle, how they go shopping preparing for their meal! You will be surprised at the market for sure!
Stop At:  
Bach Ma Temple
When you travel to Hanoi, you will see many local people burn fake money on the street; every shop always has a small altar in front of the door; temples and pagodas are everywhere. All of those things make you so confused about what they are doing or what the meaning of it is. You might ask "is Vietnam a Buddhist country?" You will find out all the answers at this place! It should be really interesting!

Bánh Cuốn Gia Truyền Thanh Vân
"The rice paper roll I had here was the best I've had. Super thin, silky smooth rice paper that wraps around the filling perfectly. I ordered the mushroom and pork filling and it was great. It is served with fried onions and a fish sauce, which adds more flavour and texture to this simple yet brilliant dish."- TripAdvisor review.

Unique experience!
Stop At:  
Bia Hoi
Best Bia Hoi in Hanoi With beer street full of tiger and Heineken, this is the place to go for that bia hoi experience. Empty glasses refilled immediately for only 11,000 VND and the most delicious pork ribs. Pull up on one of the little blue plastic stools, you won't regret it!

Bún Bò Nam Bộ Bách Phương
Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled veggies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavour on the carrot.

Bun Cha Dac Kim

Stop At:  
Old Town Garden Café
Lake overlook. This beautiful cafe might be a little hard to find, but once there it’s worth it. Order downstairs and make your way up the stairs. The first level is a gorgeous section overlooking the courtyard that feels as if you’re in another world. Head up more stairs, but skip level 3 and go up the spiral staircase to level 4 for beautiful views of Lake Hoan Kiem. Try the iced yogurt coffee or one of the teas, relax and enjoy the view.

The food tour was well paced, in a good order, delicious, and entertaining. Along the way while tasting different foods we passed several spots of interest and had a really nice view at the final stop. Everywhere we went we were able to find good seating and had the opportunity to eat a lot of food as we wanted. What I thought was really interesting was that we also stopped by a shop that dries different fruits as a snack and sampled very tasty treats, tailored to our taste. My guide, Lan, was extremely knowledgeable and informative. She was very easy to chat with and discussed the history behind the different foods we tried as well as sights that we passed along the way and even explained how some of the streets got their names.

This was an excellent tour. We were met at the market by our guide who spoke very good English. She had an assistant also. As we walked through much of the produce areas she explained what a lot of items were that we did not know. She periodically ducked into small restaurant where we sampled some food, then on our way again. She kept doing this. Sometimes her assistant had picked up some items for us to taste as well. And bought us various drinks to try. In all we tasted 29 food and drink items. All were good and different from anything we had eaten in Vietnam. I highly recommend this tour.
