Xin Chao! I am Huyen. I was born and raised in Hanoi. My passions are always traveling and getting to know fascinating places, meeting people from all over the world, and experiencing top gastronomy linking food and cultures. Over the past few years, I have travelled across Vietnam from ordinary places to exotic spots like Ha Giang and Ca Mau, known as the Northernmost & Southernmost points, and many more! Vietnamese food has an unique identity and varies in different parts. Believe it or not, northern, middle, and southern food is tasted differently. Also, I have been tried all the top Vietnamese food nationwide and ready to relay all of my knowledge and expertise to you. Are you ready to come along with me? I can't wait to show you the city that I love. Cheers!

Tour description

Whether you are with friends, traveling as a family, or flying solo, you'll be in excellent company in a warm, welcoming atmosphere with a LOCAL friend. This experience will let you live, feel & breathe the real Hanoi as you were a Hanoian. We start our journey by tasting the best dish in the city and then hearing tales of the Vietnamese language and the Vietnam War.

     Immerse yourself in Vietnamese culture as we walk through the Old Quarter and visit sites known only to locals (the tiniest and longest alley and a hidden temple). We will try up to 8 delicious dishes: Bun cha, Banh mi, Bun bo, Vietnamese sticky rice, sugarcane juice, Banh Cuon, King Rotti, dessert, and the famous egg coffee. All are unique to Hanoi. The tour is an excellent combination of tasting food and understanding history, culture, and lifestyle!

     It is not just a food tour, but you will learn so much more about Vietnam’s history, culture, and language. It is a small group tour ❤ so make sure that you'd be able to ask so many questions for me!

  VEGETARIAN dishes are available, and please contact us in advance.

  I am sure the experience will be enjoyable and informative!

  I can’t wait to see you.

Brilliant tour with the route being very manageable. Enough stops to experience a good array of foods whilst not being too many. Huyen was brilliant and a lot of fun. Would recommend for anyone thinking of doing the tour.
