My guide was Ha. She was excellent company very informative and attentive. She was also very helpful with auggestionsfor future places to also try. The tour took in 5 savoury, 1 dessert and of course the Vietnam egg coffee to finish. I did the tour on my first night so was also useful for adjusting to the city.

Ha was a charming young woman, and fun and knowledgeable company on our tour. Her choice of food stalls was smart, as she checked with us as to what we had already tried, and took us to places specializing in something different. It was nice to walk in Hanoi without needing to use GPS, and we enjoyed the food in each place.

Our tour guide Vuc was great and explained each dish clearly and answered all our questions. There was just the 2 of us and it was awesome. We tried many different dishes and the banh mi and pho was very tasty and the sticky rice and ice cream was very refreshing. The egg coffee was thick and tasty and the best we had tasted. Would highly recommend you try this tour.
