6.00pm: meet your tour guide at your hotel.

Start your evening Hanoi street food tour at the city’s largest covered market, Dong Xuan. Along the perimeter of the market, dozens of street hawkers sell a staggering variety of produce from live seafood to exotic fruits and spices.

Your expert English-speaking local guide will give you an insight into the intricacies and traditions of Vietnamese food culture including details on ingredients and historical backgrounds of popular northern dishes.

Eat as you go, trying seasonal fruits and sampling a tasty French-inspired snack from a street cart.

Try Hanoi Bia Hoi - Hanoi Draught Beer at a fascinating corner of the old quarter.

Walking through the maze of bustling streets that make up Hanoi’s Old Quarter, tempt your tastebuds with the famed Hanoi dish Banh Cuon at a local eatery. Continue into the atmospheric heart of the Old Quarter, wander in street stalls and quiet residential lanes where you can observe local life.

Next stop at a good-to-the-last-drop Pho – Noodle Soup with beef.

Now, it's time for dessert as we venture down a small alley to join in the local tradition of feasting on fresh fruit served in a cup and smothered with crushed iced and condensed milk – this specialty is one not to be missed!

Your local guide will then take you to one of Hanoi’s best kept secrets, a hidden café with stunning views over the picturesque Hoan Kiem Lake. This hard-to-find café is one of the few left in the city that still serves egg coffee, a scrumptious local delicacy that we will sample whilst admiring the hustle and bustle of the city centre below. Or, if coffee is not your style, a cold beer awaits!

At the end of our Hanoi tour you can be free to continue discovering the Old Quarter on your own, or your tour guide will show you direction to go back to your hotel.
