Hanoi Street Food Walking Tour
From US$ 29.00

Combine Hanoi’s culture with its cuisine on a street food walking tour, designed to provide an insider glimpse into the city. In addition to receiving personalized attention in a small group limited to 12, you’ll have access to places traditional tour vehicles can’t reach and discover local specialities, such as banh cuon (pork crepes), which you may otherwise have missed. All food and drinks are included for a seamless experience.

What to Expect

Your food tour begins in central Hanoi, where you’ll greet your guide and small group and set off toward your first food stop: Dong Xuan, a covered market replete with hawker stalls selling fresh seafood and exotic fruit.

After sampling a few snacks, you’ll head to Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Watch chefs hard at work in an open-kitchen restaurant and then sit down to sample bahn cuon, a lesser-known delicacy featuring crispy pork and crepes.

Your tour concludes with a fruit-and-condensed-milk dessert, which you’ll enjoy in a cafe with views over Hoan Kiem Lake.

Very enjoyable. Tony (Thành) was our guide, and he made the night memorable. We ate/drank at 6 different establishments, and also saw some interesting non-food related sights in Hanoi. The food was varied and tasty, and the last venue in particular was unique. Cafe Pho...More

Yes, one of our group was gluten free, 90% of the food is either rice based or vegetables. I think there was a bun but not sure what it was made of just don't have it and enjoy the rest of the tour.

There were two vegetarians in our group - just give the tour company plenty of notice and they can co-ordinate with the different restaurants / food vendors.
