Small-Group Hanoi Street Food Tour with a Real Foodie

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discovering Hanoi’s Old Quarter street foods can be a leap of faith without a guide to steer you to the must-eats and prevent you getting lost. With this small-group tour, you’ll visit tried-and-trusted food spots to sample classics, such as steamed pancakes, noodle soup, and more, all with a guide to describe each dish and help you navigate. The tour starts in the 

Old Quarter, we also might visit 

Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake), Dong Xuan Market e.g.
  • Discover the street food of Hanoi Old Quarter on a guided walking tour
  • Eat like a local, with a guide for added insight and to avoid getting lost
  • Learn about Hanoi’s food and try dishes, such as noodle soup and pancakes
  • Personalized feel: tour size limited to six people
What to Expect
Meet in central Hanoi and follow your guide on foot into the bustling streets. The Old Quarter is brimming with simple family-run restaurants and street-food stalls, many with tables on the sidewalks. In between walking and talking, stop to taste up to 10 specialties. Your tastings will amount to lunch or dinner (depending on your selected option), and vegetarian and other dietary options are available. Samples may vary, but expect to try dishes, such as rice noodle soup with beef, chicken or pork; plus sticky rice, snail, steamed pancake, doughnuts, and Vietnamese baguettes. As you eat, learn about the ingredients and history of the dishes from your guide, and soak up the enticing food aromas and vibrant street scenes.
