Real local cuisine on a street food walking tour Hue
My wife and I were looked after very well by Ngoc and Nhung ( a new intern of the company). We visited about five different locations that we would never otherwise have found – most very much for the locals. The food was unusual and very nice and I felt it gave us an insight not normally gained by tourists. We were told in advance that we would be part of a small group, but as it transpired it was just the four of us, which was great.
We love Ngoc! She was very pleasant, chatty and knowledgeable too – a real credit to the company.
A great tour if you want to sample real local food off the beaten track.
Great Hue street food tour by foot
Really good food tour with Ngoc as a guide. She loves cooking so she knows a lot about all the street food we tried, all very tasty!
Fantastic walking food tour of Hue – our favorite foodie experience in Vietnam
Our tour guide was Ngoc – she was informative, hilarious, and really gave us a grand tour of Hue’s cuisine. We also did food tours in Hanoi and Saigon, and this was easily our favorite.
