The Old Quarter of Hanoi is the core of the legendary “36 guild streets of Hanoi”, where goods and crafts were traded in specialized streets formed by traders and craftsmen from clans and villages all over the country. In the course of their migration to the city, they brought along their culture, habits, and local delicacies that were gradually adopted in the Hanoians’ way of life. So, it is here that the street food scene is overwhelming and should not be missed during your trip to Vietnam as a whole and Hanoi in particular.
Embark on a walking/street food tour through Hanoi’s best culinary spots alongside a renowned food blogger. This local insider possesses an enormous passion for his country's cuisine, resulting in a blog that has gained a large following both in Vietnam and internationally. Join the specialist street food guide with the walking street food tour of Hanoi; a comfortable pair of walking shoes is recommended!
By far our most popular tour, this tour is great fun and a perfect way to discover some of the lesser-known dishes that the locals love to eat. From Bun Bo (Sauteed Beef Rice Vermicelli), Banh Cuon (Steamed rice rolls), “Banh Mi” and end with unique Ca Phe Trung (Egg Coffee) which will 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!
