I was lucky enough to stumble upon this tour company. All of their Hanoi city tours are well worth it and super informative and fun. I learned so much. The cool thing was that the company has enough experience with Vietnam in general that they were also able to help me customize some experiences for later in my trip. I had an unconventional timeline and some random set of wishes. Brian was experienced enough to understand my situation and piece together a custom itinerary that worked out perfect for me. He sensed what my style of travel was zeroed in on the perfect combination. I value his experience and think he has put together a unique company of guides and tours that stand out from the many that are offered. Go with A Taste of Hanoi and you will not regret it no matter which tour you choose.

The 10 Tastes Tour of Hanoi introduced our group of six to a different side of Hanoi to which most tourists are oblivious.

We walked around the Old Quarter, slipping between many small family-run cafes, sitting on tiny chairs and amongst cooking pots. There was plenty to see.

We felt a part of everything going on around us, and we had the confidence to explore and discuss our thoughts on other travels and experiences in Vietnam with tour guide, Brian The Vagabond.

He shared with us little bits of information relating to religious, cultural, and practical aspects of Vietnamese life and food. It really was like the name of the company - A Taste Of Hanoi - as the tour extend beyond simple food experiences. .

We sampled 10 super fresh hot and cold dishes, green tea, and local beer that are uniquely Hanoi in their flavours. Brian is a passionate foodie, and his history of being a qualified chef encouraged us to try flavours and things outside our comfort zone, and they were super tasty.

We had a coeliac on the tour, a person who was mad about fresh Durian, and a few who needed the comfort of fans in the stifling heat. Brian accommodated all our needs and answered our questions expertly.

Of course the benefits are with finding some places to return to on your own. He really helped us understand each venue had opening and closing times, and why they had been chosen for the tour. The bites he chooses are unique and d high quality.

We finished in a local beer hall and after running over time we parted with MỘT – HAI – BA– DZÔ and finished our tour, well satisfied we had ‘tasted’ Hanoi’s best.

An absolutely wonderful journey with Brian! An experienced chef and guide for more than 15 years, over 10 in Vietnam, Brian knows the food scene in this town. In a Bourdain like extravaganza, we toured multiple unique spots around the old quarter. Each stop had an in-depth description of the specialty that we would enjoy, along with stories about the chef or restaurant. Our family of four throughly enjoyed this experience as we gained access to the inside scoop of what locals know.
The tour was really well planned as we meandered between 9+ spots. We will try to return to all discoveries he introduced to us. A very enthusiastic foodie whose passion for Vietnamese cuisine is infectious. A++

This was a really great experience and I learned so much about the city and its history that I would not have been able to learn otherwise. My guide was Ha, and he was super knowledgeable and friendly. He took me to many less touristy parts of the city, including some of his favourite places to eat for snack and meal breaks.

Loved this walking foodie tour of Hanoi. Brian was an incredible host and his passion for food was evident from the moment we met. Hanoi really is a foodie paradise and I highly recommend this experience. Perfect final stop for coffee with view over the lake. If you do the afternoon tour I recommend you skip or have a very light lunch! Brian also did a great job of adapting the food to my gluten free diet.

Highly recommended. We thoroughly enjoyed our time walking through the busy old town of Hanoi sampling local cuisine. Hi, our guide, was very personable, professional, courteous and fun. He spoke excellent English. We will all remember his mantra of "sticky rice" when crossing the chaotic Hanoi streets!

We visited a selection of small food stalls that cooked their produce and specialised in one particular item. We was sampled freshly cooked Vietnamese doughnuts with a mung bean centre, Bahn Mi (my favourite!), a variety of different noodles and steamed rice pancakes, not to forget the worm pancakes. Plus we tried the delicious Vietnamese Egg Coffee and Coconut Coffee. Everything was delicious and a great introduction, not only to Vietnamese cuisine, but also their culture.

Our guide, Vu, was incredible. He shared a rich cultural history of Vietnam with us, had a thorough knowledge of the coffee and was enthusiastic to share the city with us. He took us to places we would not have otherwise wondered into. He was excellent and a great highlight of our time! I recommend doing this earlier so you can visit some of the cafes again before you depart.
