At 11.30 (or 18.00), our tour guide will meet you at your hotel lobby. The walking tour takes in the ‘Old Quarter’s’ “36 streets”, visiting some famous and specialized food families, stalls, local restaurants & shops where they run their daily businesses, You will have the chance to taste some particular dishes, as well as watching them being prepared. (Please let us know if you are vegetarian or have special requirements).

The old quarter in Hanoi is over one thousand years old and today retains much of the old flavour that made the area special in earlier times, Each street was the exclusive domain of one trade (guild), so there are whole streets of blacksmiths, silver shops, paper shops, headstone makers and more. Originally there were just 36 streets in the old quarter but today there are more than 50 streets. Although many of the streets are short, and the area is rather compact, it is very difficult to find some local specialty foods on your own tucked away in hidden alleys or sidewalks, Certainly, the best way to make it easy is to join with us and take part in this special tour to learn about Vietnamese cuisine, culture, people and language. After all, Vietnamese Street Food will give you a unique opportunity to experience the foods of the local Hanoi people, We ensure the food is handled hygienically and provide a comfortable venue for the tastings. The benefit also goes back to the vendors or restaurants/families as we buy directly from them.

Notes: Vietnamese Street Food Tour focuses on street food stalls as well as lovely mini restaurants (not luxury restaurants), certainly they are experienced and appreciated by our local experts every day, you’ll keep on ordering food as long as you keep eating, suggestion that you should taste a little bit each place, then the next.
