It was beyond wonderful! I’m sorry I have forgotten our lovely guides name - has a little one at home - she took us to the greatest hole in the wall places! Food was beyond amazing - even for me being a vegetarian- loved everything!!!! All the food places we went to was on my “ bucket” list

The tour is highly recommended. A very nice selection of Vietnamese dishes that you would not try, very nice guide, which had a lot of information and stories to tell.

Our quite Nam made a very enjoyable tour, all the food offered was delicious and was often not somewhere we would normally have chosen to eat. And none of us got sick.

The food was super delicious and our guide Tran told us a lot about the food and the country during the tour. We were very satisfied.

Really good guide. She had some fun stories of the places and the food was really good.
