Highly recommended tour of local Hue food specialities from the comfort of a 'cyclo'.

It's been a tough 2 years for the tourism industry. Thom is optimistic and friendly guide who made this a welcoming and memorable experience.

This is a 4 hour tour on Cyclos, stopping at 5 different restauranta/stalls plus tour of the market. Thom takes you to proper local places to taste the best of the Hue delicacies....of which you sample 14. I recommend you eat light or not at all beforehand because you will be full by the end of the tour guaranteed. The local flavours are stunning and there is a good reason why Hue is known as the food capital of Vietnam. Each dish better than the last.

I would recommend this tour for any Hue itinerary to get the most out of your experience to this wonderful city. Thanks Thom for a memorable tour and for letting me have a shot on the Cyclos!

Hi Bubusi78, Thank you so much for your reviews! It is too long to have a good chance to show the local food in Hue with the guests, like you and other members of the group. I am so excited to hear the voice of the guests and I can speak English again. And, hopefully, tourism comes back with Hue, with Vietnam, with everyone. Thank you very very much! Best regards, Thom

Thanks Thom for such a wonderful experience. We are huge foodies and Thom was so accommodating of our 16 month old toddler (Jack). We ate so much and enjoyed learning about the importance of Vietnamese food and cuisine in every day life. Regards, Virginia

My girlfriend and I spent 10 days touring Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Hue and Hanoi and this food tour was one of our highlights. Thom, the owner and guide, does an amazing job taking care of his guests and providing a world class experience.

Thom explained the food and how cultural beliefs effect the food offerings. Also he uses cyclos and as a result takes you all around the city during this food tour (a total of 4 hours) which might not be doable if it were a walking tour. He takes you to out of the way places you would never find, providing a true local experience. You get more than ample food on this tour so come hungry, cause even then you still won't be able to finish eating all the delicious and interesting food that you'll receive. Finally, maybe the best part, he takes you through the local market and points out and explains all the local produce, herbs and meats used by locals on a daily basis. He even buys some fruit for you to sample later. I can't stress how great this tour is and what a can't miss activity this is in all of Vietnam. I can't recommend this highly enough.

P.S. - Don't be afraid to go if it's raining either. It was raining during our tour and Thom brought ponchos for us to wear and the cyclo drivers will enclose the cyclos in tarp to almost eliminate getting wet.

This is IT! Mr. Thom, our guide, not only knows his food but the part it plays in Vietnamese culture. So, you come away not only full of amazing, tasty dishes but also full of cultural bites. Mr. Thom is an amazing guide and the cyclos are great fun....tuk Turks without the motor.....take this tour, you won’t be disappointed.

This is the best food tour that we found on our holiday to Vietnam. Thom is a great host and very knowledgable. We travelled around on Cyclos (guy at the back of a bike while you sat at the front on a comfy seat) in Hue, which is in itself a great way to enjoy Hue.

We focused on the food of Hue and Thom showed us some amazing treats. There is no way we could of found the food and flavour of Hue with out him, he taught us about the Vietnamese culture of food and what it meant to their culture.
Had some Vietnamese coffee in an old French coffee house, pure bliss!

I highly recommend Thom and his food tour, even if you just taking a day trip to Hue to meet with Thom and do his tour.

Thanks Thom for sharing your knowledge of great food and places in Hue!

My first time on a cyclo and my first time eating Bun Bo Hue. The cyclo was a lot of fun, the Bun Bo Hue was probably one of the best meals I have ever had. I would visit Hue again just for another taste! I have had it several times out of Hue and it was never the same.

Thom is a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. We learned a few things about Hue history and food culture.

This tour was amazing. Enjoying local cuisine (around 15 different items to try!!) and in the meanwhile relaxing and enjoying the street views from the comfortable chair of a cyclo. Thom has a lot of knowledge about food in Vietnam and his English is very good. Definitely 5 stars for us. Roni and Sebas

We went on food tours in tricycle around Hue city. Our food tour-guide Thom really knows the city and his local exquisite delicacies. Thom will take us to some local restaurant that you never knew it existed. Result? It was fantastic! Highly recommended for a day trip. Thom will take you to the market as well to see how local people sells our daily basic needs. Very fruitful tour!

The street food tour with Thom was the best way to experience Hue’s culinary specialties. We had already tried a few restaurants since arriving in Hue 2 days ago but none of the dishes we have had matched the taste and the quality of the local eateries Thom took us to. The restaurants looked very basic and we probably would not have gone there without someone knowledgeable about what to order. We booked the afternoon tour, which started at 2 pm. Cyclo riders picked us up at our hotel and stayed on our side for the next 4 hours. Our first stop was Bun Bo Hue restaurant on 17 Ly Thuong Kiet Street, where we had a big bowl of beef vermicelli soup. The soup was the best we have had in Hue so far. The next stop was Dong Ba market, where Thom introduced us to a great variety of local vegetables and fruits. He bought green mango, green orange and milk apple for us to taste later. We got to experience the different smells of mint, sweet basil, and coriander. We watched vendors cutting heaps of morning glory stems into thin strips; women bargaining over huge bags of leafy green vegetables, and old ladies preparing betel quids. From the market we continued to more restaurants and little shops and stalls where Thom bought steamed pork buns, glutinous rice cakes and Banh La Gai. We tried grilled pork vermicelli and meat in a wet rice wrapper at the Tai Phu restaurant at the corner of Dien Bien Phu and Nguyen Hue streets. One of Hue’s most popular snacks, the Banh Beo (steamed rice disk with shrimp), Ram It (sticky rice dumpling on crispy fried dumplings) and Banh Loc (tapioca dumplings filled with shrimp and pork) we got to taste at the Banh Beo Ba Cu restaurant, a tiny neighborhood place on 27/177 Phan Dinh Phu Street. And as if this wasn’t enough food yet, we rounded off our tour with Che, a sweet soup and Vietnamese coffee. We were totally stuffed. The tour was an excellent way of spending an afternoon in Hue. Although the tour may initially seem pricy at $45 per person it was worth every penny. Not only did we get to taste great local food, but we felt that we supported local eateries and cyclo riders. We rode all over town and got to see different parts of the town. Thom is very passionate about Hue and its food. He was very professional throughout the entire tour, always patiently explaining the history of each dish. We can highly recommend this trip. Best to take the afternoon tour and skip lunch and dinner as there is so much to eat.

We've recently returned from a fabulous trip to Vietnam and the Hue Flavor Street Food Tour was absolutely one of the best things we did while there. My partner and I love street food and are pretty adventurous in trying out new things. Even so Thom introduced us to many delicious treats that we may not have discovered without his direction. His tour takes you through some of the most gorgeous parts of Hue and the information he shares of the history and culture of this beautiful city adds so much to the experience of sampling so many tasty new dishes. Thom is a charming and friendly young man and we wish him all the best for his business. Highly recommended!
