    What to Expect
                                                                       "Duration 11.15- 14.30 or 17.45- 21.00 "

    At 11.15/or 17.45, welcome you on the tour, then start walking around 4Km in old quarter "36 streets" to visit some famous and specialized- food families or stalls/ local restaurants, shops where they run their business everyday, certainly you will watch and taste around 6- 8 particular dishes, we can customize vegetarian or special food too. Tour guide would like to introduce some popular authentic food, then you feel comfortable to sit down and enjoy some favorite dishes and nice drinks too.

    It's interesting to hear from tour guide about the history of the old quarter in Hanoi, it is thousand years old and today retains much of the old flavor that made the area special in earlier times, each street was the exclusive domain of one trade (guilds) 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.

    It is very difficult to find some local food stalls and mini restaurants on your own in hidden alleys and sidewalks, certainly the best way to make it easy is joining with Awesome Travel, taking part in this special tour to learn about Vietnamese cuisine, culture, people and language.

    After all. We will give you an unique experience to try the local foods, 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.

    At 14.30/or 21.00, our tour guide say goodbye to you, and will help you order taxi or show you direction back your hotel. See you again!

    Many thanks to Derek for a fantastic food tour today. We booked a private tour as wanted to be able to take our time. Derek was extremely considerate - went well beyond the time allocated and helped us buy a few additional requirements with patience...More
