Full Itinerary

Afternoon Afternoon: Experience real Hanoi through taste and walking tour
If you love local stories, culture, street food and drinks, and the above sounds right up your alley – you’ll be inspired to seek out those great smells and experience some of the real Hanoi food scene.

This tour starts at 17:30 and ends at 20:30.

The tour is not just a gastronomic tour but a great way to see parts of the city that the majority of tourists don’t get to see. On this tour we will take you to go inside the small lane and alleys inside the Hanoi Old Quarter and show you how real Hanoians live, work and eat.

By far our most popular tour, this tour is great fun and perfect way to discover some of the lesser known dishes that the locals lover to eat.

From Bun Bo (Sauteed Beef Rice Vermicelli), Banh Cuon (Steamed rice rolls), Vietnames “Banh Mi” and end with Ca Phe Trung - a blend of coffee and egg whites, folded with sugar. Cold drink with ice, it tasted like a creamy tiramisu. Served with hot water, the sugar took on more of a caramel taste. Either way, it round off our four courses perfectly.

Local life, local stories; local food and local drink tasting. It's the little things that make all the difference in your travel experience!

I am so glad we did!
It was the cure to our jet lag, an hour before we had to meet I wasn't even sure if we were going to go as we felt so tired/nauseous from jet lag but decided to pull ourselves together and go - with the proviso that we'd go back to the hotel if it was too much.

Had a great walking tour on the food trail of Hanoi. Bun Cha was the yummiest. Ended with the Egg Coffee at Cafe Giang which was surprisingly delicious . It was a good way to explore the Old Quarters. Lucy, our guide, was great. Highly recommended.

everything was ok, although I expected much more from it. This tour is good for a person who just came to the country and need some introduction about Vietnam. However me and my partner have already spent more than one week in Vietnam, so we thought that we'll be able to find out something new..

We did a foodie walking tour after the cruise in Hanoi with Mark which was extremely informative and enjoyable. Under Marks guidance we ate in 3 different street food venues and finished in a little cafe which provided us with a wonderful egg coffee speciality. The experience made us more confident… More
