We had a great time on the food tour with our guide (Tea).

By the time we wrapped up, our bellies were bursting from all the different foods that we sampled. Be warned.. the portions are generous and 2 people will end up leaving a lot on the plate from the 3rd restaurant onwards.

We wrapped up with coffee at a famous cafe on the 1st floor of an old building. Given the small, narrow, dilapidated entrance and worn out seating area, we were quite surprised how popular and packed it was. Attached a couple of pics of Cafe Dinh.

Haley took us to so many excellent places. The food was very authentic and was dishes we never would have known to try ourselves.
Even though it was Chinese New Years and many places she wanted to take us were closed, she was resourceful enough to find the next place for us to eat regardless. My favourite had to be the Vietnamese Egg Coffee. Thanks for the great experience Haley!!!

We were able to try several different places that as tourists we would have never stopped by otherwise. Several of the items my girlfriend had on her list to try we ate, and personally I enjoyed everything. There was so much food that even though I was hungry I could not finish everything.

Our tour guide was excellent spoke fluent English. She was also very open, we discussed food, life in Vietnam, she was willing to answer any questions we had and was able to answer honestly. Sadly I can not recall her name as I would otherwise highly recommend her.

We were not given any information on where to meet and had to call them to find out.
The tour started well with a group of 6 and a young girl as our guide.
After a quick walk we had our first stop for a Banh Mi, we were not given any info on the food or the place and just made small talk amongst ourselves while we ate.
We then walked to the 2nd stop for a sweet soup with sticky rice where we were given some information on the ingredients and the guide told us about weddings and funerals in Vietnam which was interesting but not really relevant to the tour.
The 3rd stop was for a sausage and bacon Pho and the 4th for a beef and papaya salad both stops we were given little information again.
Finally we had an egg coffee and the guide told us her life story about her family loosing all their money which took about half an hour and was very uncomfortable.
Although the food was good we got very little information on the food or vendors so over all it was disappointing.

Dear HappyTravelersVR, We are so sorry about the misunderstanding about the meeting address in the tour. In our tour meeting address is our office: 03 Gia Ngu street located in the heart of Old Quater of Hanoi. We think that you did not find it out. We would add the details of the meeting address in our products for more easy find before your booking. About the stories along the tour. We not only focus on the local street foods but we also focus on the local cultures during the tour which would help you to understand more about Old Quater life, Hanoi and Vietnam life. And along the streets we passby there are so many things we think customers do not know then she explained for you like her responsibility the local guide. But if you are not happy about this. We would pass your ideas to her so that she would have better good ways to guide other customers. I will surely forward your feedback to my team in order to retrain our team and maintain our high quality customer services for next travelers using our services. Warmest regards, Lisa Dang (Mr.) Operation Manager

This was our first ever food tour. We were looking forward to authentic...different foods.
Our first stop (which was a very brisk walk with us battling to keep up) was for a salad roll!!! I can make a salad roll at home.
We had jelly and tapioca in a syrup.
Stopped at a very unpleasant looking restaurant...went upstairs for meat, noodles and greens on top. I could not eat this...far too sweet for me also. (I did try)
We did try another desert type dish, I could not tell you what it was.
Finished with the egg coffee, which my husband did like. I never had one as I was told it was very sweet and I was over sweet by that time.
Unfortunately we found this tour very disappointing

My husband, another couple and myself decided to experience Vietnamese food in Hanoi on a walking food tour of the old quarter. Mia was our guide and though young, she was quite knowledgeable about the food, the city and the history. Her English was also very good and we had no difficulty understanding what she was telling us. We tasted the traditional Pho;, Banh Mi sandwich, sticky rice in coconut milk, bbq pork on a skewer, another noodle dish and finished with the famous egg coffee. As a first time visitor to Asia, it was a great way to experience the food and learn the customs. Mia made it fun and took us to places we would never have found without her. We highly recommend this food tour and if you ask for Mia you will have a wonderful experience.

We had Mia as our guide and she gave us lots of information about Vietnam cuisine and culture. She was great fun, spoke excellent English and answered all our questions. It was just the two of us. We tried 4 different types of food and finished off with an egg coffee. All the food was very tasty and we were certainly full by the end of the tour. We weren’t so keen on the coffee, but it’s a specialty in Hanoi, so it’s important to give it a try. This was a great way to spend our first evening in Hanoi, we thoroughly recommend it.

Although we debated being adventuresome enough to try street food in Ha Noi, we were delighted by our experience of 5 foods, new to us, during our walking tour with Mia, our energetic and positive 21 yr. old dynamo guide. Not only did she explain the history of each food we sampled, but her English was excellent so we covered a number of other conversational topics including her recommendation that we experience The Binh Minh Jazz Club. Mia's love for the Old Quarter was infectious and we appreciated the city so much more for it. Our favorite foods on the tour were: Pho, doughnuts with bean paste, and Egg Coffee but she also assisted us in purchasing dried fruits from a comprehensive street vendor selection. I highly recommend this tour and "hats off to Mia".
