This is my third (#3) walking food tour with A Taste of Hanoi. I keep coming back to them because they are easy to communicate and work with. This is, however, the first KIDS food tour I've been on (and that they might have done). Brian was so flexible and quick to respond to my million questions and messages. We, the parents on the previous tour, had this idea about a kid focused food tour, pitched to the ATOH team and they ran with it. They kept kids safety at the forefront of our tour and designed it around easy and safe walking paths. It was a healthy helping of food tour and educational tour, feeding mind and body. We visited the Ba Dinh Square complex, Quan Than Temple and wrapped up with a wonderful family style dinner at a hidden gem of a restaurant. Overall, wonderful experience.

Loved our food tour! Our group of friends (we were a total of 4 couples) had such a great time. Brian (the person behind the FB chat) and Nikkita (our tour guide) were SUPER!!! Brian listened to our special requests (food preferences/dietary restrictions) and offered great suggestions. Brian was prompt to reply to all my questions and was very easy to communicate with as he is a native English writer. Nikkita was punctual, warm and welcoming. I particularly loved that she really took the time to share her beautiful culture and history of certain spots. For instance, why you’ll only notice men sipping tea at certain locations or pointing out a popular women’s hangout. Loved that she took us to the East Gate where she shared some history and enjoyed a seasonal treat (omelet with worms!) I didn't mentally prepare for that one, but it was no biggie as I didn't see them or taste them. We all learned so much (so the history buffs were happy) that went beyond Vietnamese cuisine. Our tour went over by about an hour because we were having so much fun and did some shopping along the way (which Nikkita helped us out with a bit of haggling 😉) and at no point did we feel rushed by her. I could tell she was having a good time too. It was so convenient to arrive at a new spot and have her order and pay while we socialized. Overall, we were very happy with the tour and are planning to request a customized kids edition tour in the near future. Fun Fact: Nikkita runs Hidden Hanoi cooking classes out of her home. Check them out too! My son has taken a class with her and absolutely loved it. He also learned how to properly use a sharp knife and clean up his work area. Didn’t go in one ear and out the other! Thanks Nikkita! PRO-TIP#1: If you are moving to Hanoi, do a food tour upon arrival so you can enjoy and discover as much of the local food as you can during your time here. You won’t be disappointed! PRO-TIP#2: Don’t eat everything at the first couple of stops. Eat ½ or ¼ of what you are being offered…and wear comfortable shoes!

With physical travel not happening right now, I thought it would be fun to take a virtual coffee tour of Hanoi. I took the 10pm (East Coast time) tour and it was a great Friday night of exploring! My tour guide, Cong, was super personable and even though we were all Zooming in remotely, he made it an interactive experience as if we were on the ground with him. Cong took us to four coffee shops and showed us different local coffee styles and gave a bit of history of coffee and architecture in Hanoi. It was super interesting and I'd highly recommend this virtual tour! Hopefully my next experience can be in person!

I recently did the Hanoi Secret Coffee VIRTUAL tour and to be honest I was really very pleasantly surprised. The tour was a gift actually and my expectations of an online 'virtual' coffee tour of Hanoi weren't high, to be honest. How wrong was I? The tour was really good and a very welcome escape from the current lockdown problems. Our guide Nikkita was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and she happily answered all our dumb touristy questions with a smile. As well as being funny and easy-going, she was also incredibly knowledgable. Thanks to her, our virtual tour was not only fun but surprisingly informative especially for a coffee lover like myself. Nikkita didn't only show us how coffee is made in Hanoi, she fully explained and demonstrated each step of how we can make our own Vietnamese coffee here in our own homes which was an unexpected bonus. Our tour was a morning tour (Vietnam time), so nice and convenient for me given the time difference and took us through the back streets of Hanoi to places that we would never have found ourselves even if we were really there in Hanoi. Top tip - the last stop is great! Highly recommended, especially for the low price and we can't wait to get out to Vietnam in the real world to enjoy an actual tour with Nikkita and compare the real Vietnamese coffee against my own efforts made at home.

A very fun virtual tour that we took from her on living room. Lauren some really interesting stuff about coffee in Vietnam. The tour guide made it fun and exciting and had one scariest scooter rides I've ever been on when I wasn't even there. The only thing I regret is that we did not have smell-a-vision for this tour.
