  • This tour can be customized based on your request
  • We cater vegetarian, please contact us for more details
  • If you are not comfortable with a motorbike ride, we can a car instead, please pay $5 extra per person
  • This tour isn’t cheap and won’t be suitable for budget travelers as we eat at the local family and local restaurants so the cost is much higher than eating at local hawker stalls in Hanoi. Please don’t compare this price to a food tour in Hanoi which makes no sense.
