This is what I wrote on Tripadvisor: We booked the Foodie Night Tour as a private group for eight of us and met up with Quan as scheduled. We had a great, great time. He was informative friendly, patient, and humorous. He taught us how to cross the streets, too. We started with a snack my our meeting point, then walked the streets for two hours,tasting rice-flour rolls stuffed with pork and accompanied by dipping sauces, fresh apple-pears on the street, an amazing main course of Chinese-style grill (again on the street), dessert of various fresh fruits with coconut milk, condensed milk, and ice, and the capped it off with beers and coffee at the Cafe Pho Co overlooking the city's skyline and lake. The whole group agreed that it was a perfect way to spend out first evening in Hanoi. Quan gave us great eating recommendation for the next day, too. Highly recommended!!!

Over the past three weeks, I have been on 6 Urban Adventures in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Hanoi. CITADEL KARST AND CYCLES has been by far the best one to date giving an insight into the history if Vietnam at the Citadel, a thoroughly fun hour cycling through the villages and rice fields, culminating in an amazing trip through the Karsts by boat. Keep up the good work Intrepid.

We were lucky to have Thao all to ourselves on the street food tour. She was hugely enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we spent a lovely evening wandering into places which we otherwise would have walked straight past. A really excellent tour and a fantastic introduction to Hanoi

The trip was great and we enjoyed all aspects of it. One thing I would mention is to be careful of the local street food experience we were both quite ill following this, and we usually do not have this problem in Vietnam.

More real than we expected. Very worth while doing and a great opportunity to see the food markets from the back streets. Just be aware when you are given directions. When you are told to turn left but the person is pointing with their right hand they mean right. We went by the spoken word and became lost for an hour and a half. Since then we have taken notice and it is a common practice.

We did three events in one day; each of them very interesting. Our guide, Thoa, was the best! His English was superb, and he shared so much knowledge about the past and present ways of life in Vietnam.
