Hanoi Street Food Waking Tour

Greet your gastronomic guide and group at Dong Xuan, the largest covered market in Hanoi, to begin your culinary tour. Inhale the aromatic scents exuding from street hawker stalls and follow your nose to stands replete with exotic fruits and fresh seafood. Listen as you guide explains the culinary context of the city and hear about the cultural significance of local specialties.  

After sampling a selection of snacks at the market, venture to Hanoi’s Old Qaurter to absorb the antique ambience of the area. Visit a local restaurant to watch expert chefs at work, then take a seat to dine on banh cuon, a delectable local dish of crispy pork crepes. Stroll down labyrinthine lanes to pleasure your palate with flame-grilled meat at barbecue stands and marvel at the color and charisma of the vibrant area. 

Conclude your feast with a sweet treat made from condensed milk, crushed ice and fresh fruit, then settle into a seat in a secret café famed for its spectacular views over Hoan Kiem Lake. Sip the local specialty of egg coffee and bid your guide and group farewell in this ambient establishment.

We had an amazing evening with Lucky. Wandered around the Old Quarter eating from tiny street stands and small family restaurants, Hanoi BBQ was fabulous. Had our first egg coffee at an amazing café/restaurant tucked down an alley between two shops. We would never have found these places without Lucky. More food than was possible to eat. A great tour.

We enjoyed this very much. There were 7 in our group of interesting and bright people. Our guide Lucky was great! I would definitely recommend. It was conducted by Urban Adventures, which was less expensive than any of the other similar companies or offered by tour companies

This was an informative and delicious tour of Hanoi. Lucky was our guide and he was a dynamic character. He gave a wonderful overview of the city and the food. Every place he took us was delicious. He was very good about listening to allergies and making sure that the needs of each person was met. He is a talker but it was great to learn about his city through his eyes and experience.
