I'd highly recommend opting for the Hanoi food tour. My guide, Max, was incredibly enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and made the evening a real experience. It wouldn't have been the same without him!

We got Cherry as our guide, she spoke amazing English and was so funny and open to all our crazy questions. she came and picked us up on her scooter and we walked around sampling Hanoi's specialities! Lots of food and lots of places I would have not have noticed or thought to go to! I really recommend doing this tour, even if you've been here for a while, thanks cherry!

We did the tour and made friends with the other food tour members and it was fun. The food was ok, but we already ate better. It is good if you have no idea about vietnamese dishes, but if you already know what's good, it might not be worth it.

Laura J

We chose to do the tour here on our very first day in Vietnam and it was the best idea ever. Our tourguide Sarah showed us some amazing streetfood options while also explaining a lot about vietnamese culture and making sure everyone had a good time. Would definately recommend doing the tour to try as much of this delicious food as possible. Sarah was great and did a really good job! Thanks!
