Hidden spots of walking tour in Hanoi Old Town

It’s inevitable that tours will sometimes end up at well-documented venues. Inevitable in part because these are often well-known spots for a reason: the food’s good.

Also, some tour operators are keen to stick to places that have been vetted and offer a certain level of hygiene.

For some, this is a perfect introduction — street food with security –- but what about if you’ve already dipped your toe in the world of pho and bun cha and are looking for a tour that can show you the real off-the-beaten track spots and introduce you to new dishes?

This is a very subjective area, as off-the-beaten track for some might be everyday and boring for others. To generalise, however, the more expensive tours went to less touristy places.

Of course, if you have specific requests -– food you want to try or to avoid -– you’ll need to book onto a private tour and discuss your requirements in advance.
