Hanoi Food Tour with Train Street Visit

1. Hanoi Food Tour with Train Street Visit

Start your tour at the meeting point on No.47 Hàng Bông street, and head to a traditional restaurant specializing in entrees such as pillow cake, shrimp cake, Pho rolls, and spring rolls. Have a taste of some popular and classic Vietnamese dishes. Then head over to the nearby St. Joseph’s and stop for some pictures of the late colonial French architecture. Along the way make sure to stop at a local restaurant to try banh cuon (filled rice noodles) and watch as skilled chefs demonstrate how this tasty dish is created. Next, enjoy pho (noodle soup), which is Vietnam’s most famous dish. Try both the beef and chicken versions. Definitely don't miss out on a Vietnamese traditional dessert called chè. There are both hot and cold versions for each season. After several dishes, you will be full and satisfied. Catch a taxi and go straight to the train street. Although train schedules show them to come daily, sometimes they do and sometimes not, so if you're lucky, you may catch one and experience the huge train passing right in front of your face. While here, enjoy egg coffees at a nice shop trackside and experience the unique ambiance. When you’re done with the drinks, hop in a taxi again to go back to the meeting point where the tour ends. For the disabled and those who simply have sore feet, select the cyclo option where you can sit back and enjoy the tour in quiet comfort.

Hanoi: Morning or Afternoon City Highlights Tour

2. Hanoi: Morning or Afternoon City Highlights Tour

Explore Hanoi and see its highlights on a morning or afternoon city tour by van. See the Temple of Literature, Ho Chi Minh Complex, Tran Quoc Pagoda, and more. Begin your tour at the Hanoi Opera House in the French Quarter and wonder at one of the city's main architectural landmarks. Then head to the Temple of Literature, the first university of Vietnam built in the 10th century under the Ly Dynasty and greatly influenced by Confucianism. Make your way to the Ho Chi Minh Complex, an important place for the Vietnamese. The complex is a traffic-free area full of botanical gardens, monuments, memorials and pagodas. Stop outside Ba Dinh Square and take a look outside the mausoleum, then continue to explore the One Pillar Pagoda. Go to Tran Quoc Pagoda, one of the oldest pagodas in Hanoi, before concluding your tour at St. Joseph's Cathedral to learn about religion in Vietnam. The church was one of the first structures built by the French colonial government in Indochina when it opened in December 1886.

Bruno was an excellent guide, providing useful information and insights throughout. Lots to see, and makes a big difference with a guide to understand the background. Temple of literature a must see. One issue timing, we ran out of time to complete your. Now as it turned out we Couldn’t get into or near mausoleum which was disappointing as international president visiting. I not sure if your company should or could know this was happening or could / should have had another option. Enjoyed tour

Our street food tour was amazing. Our guide Gen was really friendly,knowledgeable and entertaining. It’s the best tour to do if it’s your first time in Vietnam as you really get a feel for the place. Gen spoke very good English so there were no misunderstandings and all in all we had a brilliant time. A bonus for us was going to train street where we actually saw the train go through the street!

What a great day! Austin was funny and friendly, showing me unique places and answer my many many questions. He shared his personal favourites and made sure I got to see the train street. He was excellent. The tour was great value for money- I ate so much food and it was all delicious.

Guia muito preparado e com ótimo inglês. Além de nos explicar muito bem a história do país e dos locais que visitamos, nos deu ótimas dicas de restaurantes e foi almoçar com a gente em um local típico vietnamita.

Great small group tour with James. Four of us in total and only me for Train St. Introduced us to some very tasty Hanoi local street foods. And v lucky, perfect timing for the train
