Hanoi KIDS Walking Tour
Apr 2021
This is my third (#3) walking food tour with A Taste of Hanoi. I keep coming back to them because they are easy to communicate and work with. This is, however, the first KIDS food tour I've been on (and that they might have done). Brian was so flexible and quick to respond to my million questions and messages. We, the parents on the previous tour, had this idea about a kid focused food tour, pitched to the ATOH team and they ran with it. They kept kids safety at the forefront of our tour and designed it around easy and safe walking paths. It was a healthy helping of food tour and educational tour, feeding mind and body. We visited the Ba Dinh Square complex, Quan Than Temple and wrapped up with a wonderful family style dinner at a hidden gem of a restaurant. Overall, wonderful experience.

Sights and foods of Hanoi- Awesome Day
My husband and I had an awesome private tour with Brian. He picked us up in the the hotel lobby with his driver( comfortable, safe car). I had requested that he show us the main highlights of Hanoi ending with the Old Quarter and that’s exactly what he did. Brian is American but has lived in Hanoi for the last 10 years and is an extremely fun and knowledgeable and passionate about Hanoi. We explored hidden alleyways and passages and he had lots of stories to tell. We had a delicious egg coffee, went on the highest roof top bar in the old quarter and had numerous small bites at various stalls including a yummy catfish spring roll, a fish-pork cake, a banana fritter and a doughnut. Plus wine and craft beer. At the end he took us right back to the hotel. If we had more time I would have booked another of his tours as it was so good. Thank you Brian for a great day - we loved it! ( we communicated on what’s app which was very easy)

Feb 2020 • Couples
Ling and Nini were so kind and well-organized on this tour—we got to eat a little bit of everything (one vegetarian & one meat eater) and try a bunch of food we might not have otherwise. The history and explanations were helpful, and I’m looking forward to using the menu we got to navigate the rest of our trip! 13/10 highly recommend.

Customized food tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
My husband and I used to live in Hanoi and we recently went back for a short holiday visit. We wanted to try out some “new” food and decided to contact Brian. Since we already knew major dishes, one of his best tour guides, Cuon surprised us with some hidden stops along our food tour. Although we lived there for 3.5 years before, we were absolutely satisfied with It. We even had a very special seafood dish we never heard or had before, it was a great experience for us visiting from a land lock country.

Short special tour, still many dishes!
We had a great time! We did a short version tour with special dishes. This was about 3 hrs and had unique food like a spring roll with pork & fish, grilled quail, and sea-worm cakes! Fun and recommended for the adventurous.

We had a great tour with Brian. We tried a lot of interesting food and teas and he was very knowledgeable about Hanoi (including the historic the buildings and the war) and also food which made for interesting conversation. The tour was very speedy so ensure you’re up for moving and eating fast!

Amazing!!!
Dec 2019 • Couples
My wife and I did the half-day food walking tour, and it was incredible! It was just the two of us with our amazing guide Cong, who I highly recommend. He was personable, informative, detailed, fun, and listened well to all our questions. He took us to some hidden gems we would have never found without his help! We were so full at the end of the tour, you will not go hungry! 100% would do this again, try and book with Cong if he’s available!
