About your Hanoi tour

If you want to see Hanoi's food scene at its best, you'll need to get up at the crack of dawn when the markets explode into a riot of colour and activity.

During our early morning Hanoi food tour, you'll leave the tourist trail behind and jump head first into four different food markets with our Hanoi chef (the same chef that showed Hanoi's culinary delights to Gordon Ramsay).

Learn about the history, culture and ingredients that go into this distinct cuisine and try dishes at spots you'd simply never find alone.

Why this tour is awesome

What better way to learn about Hanoi's street food than with a well-respected local chef. Departing at 4am might sound extreme, but trust us, you'll see a side of Hanoi, without the tourist crowds, that can't be experienced at any other time. Remember to pack your camera because there are few places as photogenic as a Hanoi market in the wee hours.
