Put this tour on your list of 'must do
At 18.00, our tour guide will welcome you at your hotel lobby, then start walking tour 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 some particular dishes (We can customize vegetarian food or special requirement)
The old quarter in Hanoi is over one 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. Although many of the streets are short, and the area is rather compact,
It is very difficult to find some local food on your own in hidden alleys or sidewalks; certainly the best way to make it easy is joining, taking part in this special tour to learn about Vietnamese cuisine, culture, people and language.
After all, Food on Foot will give you an unique experience to try the foods of the local Hanoipeople, 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 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!

This was without a doubt one of the highlights of our trip! We booked our street food tour for the evening of our arrival in Hanoi and were so glad we did. Minh met us at our hotel and took us (along with 4 other people) on a journey of food and Vietnamese culture. His English was impeccable and his tour was punctuated by humour, games and lessons (how to cross the seemingly chaotic streets of the Old Quarter, how to enjoy street foods, and how Vietnamese culture has evolved through its many ethnic influences.) Having done the tour on our first night, we were able to enjoy street foods for the rest of our stay for a fraction of the price offered by bricks and mortar restaurants. Highly recommended!Less
