What To Expect
Have a gentle introduction of Hanoi on this 5-hour tour of Asia's most charming city.
Start your tour with a pick up at your hotel. Then, hop on a rickshaw, a passenger cart open on almost all sides which will give you a chance to enjoy unobstructed views while still being protected from the sun or rain by an overhead canopy. Sit back and relax as your knowledgeable driver takes you on a 20-minute ride along the bustling streets of Hanoi, passing through the Eiffel Bridge. Built by the famous French architect Gustave Eiffel in 1902, the bridge is a living historical relic and deemed as the most special as compared to the other five bridges crossing the Red River.
Then, your guide will teach you basic local language and shopping skills. You'll then ride a bicycle to a local market to buy fresh vegetables, spices and meat you'll use for a cooking lesson.
Learn how to cook authentic Vietnamese dishes from your expert guide. You will also enjoy decorating dishes with carrot flowers, lemon grass stems, banana leaves and curved chili.The authentic magical sauce mixed from fish sauce, water, sugar, lime, chili, garlic and herbs is very easy to make.
Finally enjoy your meal with local hosts who will give an introduction about the history, culture and meaning of the typical dishes you've prepared.
After lunch, your tour will conclude with a drop off at your hotel.
