Our tour guide will welcome you at your hotel lobby(for the hotels located in Hanoi Quarter only), then start walking around Hanoi old quarter "36 streets" to visit some famous and specialized- food families or stalls/local restaurants, shops where they run their business every day, certainly you will watch and taste some particular dishes, we can customize vegetarian or special food too.
Our guide will introduce you some popular authentic food in lovely local restaurants (not luxury restaurants) where you can feel comfortable to sit down and enjoy some popular dishes and nice drinks too. It's interesting to hear from tour guide about the history of the old quarter in Hanoi, it is a thousand years old and today retains much of the old flavor that made the area special in earlier times, each street was the exclusive domain of one trade (guilds) so there are whole streets of blacksmiths, silver shops, paper shops, headstone makers and more. Originally there were just 36 streets in the old quarter but today there are more than 50 streets. It is very difficult to find some local food stalls and special restaurants on your own in hidden alleys and sidewalks, certainly the best way to make it easy is joining with Swallow Travel, taking part in this special tour to learn about Vietnamese cuisine, culture, people and language. Food on Foot Tour will give you an unique experience to try our special local food and drinks, we ensure the food is handled hygienically and provide a comfortable venue for the tasting. The margin also goes back to the vendors or local restaurants/ families as we buy directly from them.
