Scary but Tasty! - Hanoi's weird food tour

Awesome fun, quirky oddball and tasty too. Jessica speaks great English, leads you through the old quarter with knowledge and gusto; super personable. Lots of walking to work off your snails, definitely not for the squeamish but highly recommended! No more spoilers, the surprise is half the fun.

Visit a Unique Ceramic Village with a Local

Spent a great and very full day with Thanh in Bat Trang, the Ceramic village close to Hanoi. If you are interested in Ceramics, this is the Tour you absolutely can't miss.
Thanh knows her way around the village and has a great knowledge of the Vietnamese culture. The local workshops and gallery she took us to were amazing and we even bought some local pieces to take back home. The lunch was very local and delicious.
There is only one way to experience Bat Trang which is with Thanh as your guide.
Thanks a again Thanh for this great experience.

Scary but Tasty! - Hanoi's weird food tour

Jessica was absolutely a fantastic guide. She created quite an exotic and intriguing tour for local exotic food. But it was really great and her explanations and kind support helped to overcome the barriers. She was a fantastic friend for exploring the food and culture. I can say just the best recommendations. Try this tour and it will be a great experience
