What to Expect
Meet in central Hanoi and follow your guide on foot into the bustling streets. The Old Quarter is brimming with simple family-run restaurants and street-food stalls, many with tables on the sidewalks. In between walking and talking, stop to taste up to 10 specialties. Your tastings will amount to lunch or dinner (depending on your selected option), and vegetarian and other dietary options are available. Samples may vary, but expect to try dishes, such as rice noodle soup with beef, chicken or pork; plus sticky rice, snail, steamed pancake, doughnuts, and Vietnamese baguettes. As you eat, learn about the ingredients and history of the dishes from your guide, and soak up the enticing food aromas and vibrant street scenes.

Went on the tour just after hours after arriving in Hanoi. Ming picked us up at our hotel just outside the old quarter. We hit many food stalls, and a couple restaurants and got so full from all the food. Ming was great, would recommend to anyone.
