Small group tour with Anh Duy / Andy
This was a great tour and Andy is a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide! We not only got to eat some great traditional Vietnamese food but also learnt so much about the history of the foods, the city and the country of Vietnam too. My wife and I would recommend booking this tour. And ask for Andy when you book it!

Amazing food with Kelly!
We did the street food tour with Kelly. It far exceeded her expectations. She did such a great job of exposing us to new and exciting Vietnamese cuisine. Everything was so delicious. Everything was reasonably close together so it wasn’t a lot of walking considering how many places we got to eat at. Kelly even made suggestions of places for other dishes we wished to try while in hanoi. So grateful for the opportunity to do this tour, a must do while in hanoi!

Incredible food!
We had a great time with our guide Minnie today. We arrived in Hanoi yesterday and were a little nervous about venturing into the food world in the city. Minnie took us round some incredible local places we would never have dared enter. The food was delicious and Minnie spent a long time telling us about Vietnam and the culture. We highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in trying local food. Thank you Minnie!! You were fantastic! So was the Egg Coffee!

Street food tour with Luke
We had a fantastic time with Luke Tran and the rest of our tour group! We ate the most delicious Banh Mi at Bahn My in the old quarter, the rest of the food was wonderful and fresh and the egg coffee was the best way to finish off the tour. Luke was a super knowledgeable and fun guide and the group was great, we even kicked on afterward at one of the bars in Bia Hoi Junction! Highly recommend this tour and be sure to ask for Luke as your guide!

highly recommend this tour with Matthew
Thanks to Matthew ( or Minh ) for this superb food tour! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the food, his enthusiasm and his company. Matthew did a great job answering all our questions, making sure everyone had a great time and was satisfied with the tour. I would highly recommend booking the food tour with Matthew as you do not only get to try several vietnamese dishes but also you learn so much about Vietnamese culture and get a guide on where and what to eat in Hanoi afterwards. Great tour!!

Great food and great guide!
Had a great evening on our second night in Vietnam doing the small group food tour with Andy! He was a brilliant guide provided lots of information about Hanoi and Vietnam. Most importantly introduced us to some amazing food and gave us a lot more confidence in going to street food places for the rest of time in Vietnam. Highly recommended!

The Best Way to Experience Hanoi
I spent about 4 days in Hanoi doing all sorts of attractions, tours, etc. This was by far the best experience I had there and one of the most memorable parts of my trip to Vietnam. If you are a foodie, want to try new things, meet new people, and experience something new, this is the place to go.

Fantastic experience!
Our hotel arranged a food tour for us and we hit the jackpot with our tour guide Minh - we got to try so many amazing dishes and also learn about Vietnam. Our guide Minh (who also went by Matthew) kept our group moving quickly and safely through the bustling streets of Hanoi. He made sure to point out fun facts and share stories about the city along the way. He was super flexible and asked if there were any specific dishes the group wanted to try (which for us was egg coffee!). He instructed us how to eat everything the traditional way which made for a very authentic experience. To top it off, after the tour he sent us the full list of restaurants, dishes and other recommendations for Hanoi as well so we could go back to our favorite spots the next day. Thanks, Ming, for a great intro to Vietnamese food! It was delicious and so fun
