Full description

Start your tour at the meeting point on No.47 Hàng Bông street, and head to a traditional restaurant specializing in entrees such as pillow cake, shrimp cake, Pho rolls, and spring rolls. Have a taste of some popular and classic Vietnamese dishes.

Then head over to the nearby St. Joseph’s and stop for some pictures of the late colonial French architecture. Along the way make sure to stop at a local restaurant to try banh cuon (filled rice noodles) and watch as skilled chefs demonstrate how this tasty dish is created.

Next, enjoy pho (noodle soup), which is Vietnam’s most famous dish. Try both the beef and chicken versions. Definitely don't miss out on a Vietnamese traditional dessert called chè. There are both hot and cold versions for each season.

After several dishes, you will be full and satisfied. Catch a taxi and go straight to the train street. Although train schedules show them to come daily, sometimes they do and sometimes not, so if you're lucky, you may catch one and experience the huge train passing right in front of your face.

While here, enjoy egg coffees at a nice shop trackside and experience the unique ambiance. When you’re done with the drinks, hop in a taxi again to go back to the meeting point where the tour ends. For the disabled and those who simply have sore feet, select the cyclo option where you can sit back and enjoy the tour in quiet comfort.

Ryan was a great food guide, he took us to some local cafes which we wouldn't have visited without his guidance and knowledge. He ensured we were comfortable with the food choices and he kept us interested for the whole trip. He took us to train street which isn't too be missed. He ensured our safety at all times.

This was a great tour, it exceeded our expectations in everything starting with our guide tour James, he did everything to make everything went great. We enjoyed too much and James answered all our questions, not all about food but other information about Hanoi and Vietnam. TWO THUMBS UP !

Had a wonderful experience with Crossing Vietnam! My guide Tran Dang truc was a young but an experienced guide! He walked us through the streets, helping us understand the local cuisine and the culture. Friendly and likeable. Helped us understand the jargon! The group tour was wonderful as there were others who were foodie as well! A good tour! Will take some great memories from this tour!
