We welcome you to join us on the most incredible street food experience in Hanoi – for an unforgettable, tongue-tantalising adventure!

This tour is a three-hour-long experience where you’ll sample at least 15 local Vietnamese street food varieties including savoury dishes, sweet snacks and unique beverages. Our advice? Have an early and light lunch or even skip lunch on the day that you join us as you’re about to get full, very full!

The tour includes a knowledgeable English-speaking local guide who will talk as you walk and eat. You’ll make friends along the way as you sample Vietnamese culinary delights and wash it down with refreshing Bia Hoi (Hanoi’s beloved street beer).

You’ll learn about Hanoi’s unique street food culture that’s been inspired by French and Chinese cuisine, and meet the friendly chefs and street food vendors along the way. It’s a great way to explore the city and delve deeper inside Hanoi’s history and culture – through its food!

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 72 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

  3. Our guide was amazing and so lovely. We were shown good we otherwise would have had no idea about and all the best spots to get it from. Highly recommend this tour if you are unsure about which food you will like/want to try new things.

  4. We took the street food tour on the first night we arrived in Hanoi. It was a great way to be shown the local dishes and what to choose on the streets. Highly recommend

  5. Barring food allergies there is little substitution on this tour. One of us didn’t eat fried foods and had to just sit out a few dishes. We were hoping to learn more about Vietnamese food and culture than we did. Our guide, while very nice, wasn’t good a disseminating this sort of information. With that said, we got to try many different dishes and went to many stalls we never would have found on our own or would have been brave enough to try without local help.
