Scary but Tasty! - Hanoi's weird food tour

Excellent tour, really couldn’t of found all the amazing dishes we ate without a local guide, honestly enjoyed every dish but the egg coffee was amazing, by far my favourite. Jessica was very friendly and informative, spoke excellent English which was important for us because we can’t speak Vietnamese at all. You really must try this

A Taste of Hanoi - Food Adventure by Foot

4 hours filled with fun, history, interesting conversations, and oh, did I mention absolutely delicious local 🥘?! Extremely professional and highly knowledgeable and prepared. If I had to squeeze out a complaint(s), I wish I had starved myself before the tour because between food brought by Brian and 5/6 stops, I was just stuffed. And Brian should raise prices for the tour! :)

Secret Coffee Tasting Experience in Hanoi

I highly recommend this tour.
Thanh knows some pretty awesome cafés in Hanoi, willing to show and present them, and all that is done in excellent English!
The cafés and types of coffee included in this touer are not "awesome" in the "hyped-so-everyone-goes-there" sense of the word, but in the sense that they are unique, original and popular with locals (hardly any foreigners spotted), and all for the good reasons.
