Thanh, our guide, met us and immediately set us at ease as to what to expect. He was knowledgable, spoke very good English an tailored the tour to suit the groups needs. The food was excellent and in some cases quite unexpected, but all delicious. We also learnt heaps about Hanoi street culture as we wound through the markets, back streets and shops. We squatted on the footpath on little plastic stools, just like the locals and got stuck into duck's tongues, seafood, strange vegetables and flavours I had never experienced before.
I would recommend this evening tour for anyone interested in Hanoi street culture, Vietnamese food or just for a fun night out. Highly recommended. And Thanh made it even better.
