We did this on our first day in Hanoi, and we are so glad we did because it really set us up for the rest of our trip. We have the most lovely girl (sorry I cant remember her name) who met us at our hotel. She firstly asked us what we liked to eat and asked if there was anything in particular we would like to try, the only thing that came to mind was Bun Cha (which you MUST eat - it is absolutely amazing!). So off we went. Firstly we had a delicious dumpling/dim sim things which I think had chicken,pork and prawn, at the same place we have some Vietnamese sausage (lovely!). We then tried Sugar cane juice, bun cha, morning glory, egg coffee, rice paper rolls, beer (haha!) and lots more. A big part of the tour was just getting to know our guide, she was such a lovely girl, and not only did she teach us about the food, but also the local way of life. She took us through some dark lane ways to give us a sense of what day to day life is like and to see how they live.
By the end of the day we were absolutely stuffed. At the end of the tour we were taken back to the office to meet Mr Ahn. We had a great time hanging out in the office with him drinking snake wine.
The tour is definitely a "must do" and really gave us the confidence to try all sorts of street food throughout Vietnam. Thank-you Vietnam Awesome Travel!
