Hoi An Street Food Walking Tour

Join this Hoi An food tour to discover what happens when the sun sets – a great way to cool off and enjoy all of the delicacies Vietnam has to offer. Your tour begins as you walk through local cafes, food vendors, markets, restaurants, etc. By the end of your tour, you are sure to be satisfied.

Firstly, you will visit a local bakery famous for their banh mi, a Vietnamese sandwich! They have been using the freshest ingredients to make these scrumptious sandwiches for decades and it is no wonder that they are famous!

Moving on from one local delicacy to another, you will join locals at a quaint local spot to try the tasty BBQ pork rolled in rice paper. This is served with a typical soy dipping sauce. This is known to most locals as the highlight of the food scene in Hoi An. Then you will continue onward to the central market where you will visit some local food stalls with produce, noodles, sweets, fruit and fresh seafood! You and your guide will stroll through as you are given the full rundown of the market and informing you about the significance of each food item in the Vietnamese cuisine and culture.

Then, you’ll follow your guide to one of their favorite restaurants in Hoi An for some specialties: deep fried wonton and white rose dumplings. After some dumplings,you are in for another round of delicacies as you will arrive at a street vendor famous for chicken rice. But be sure to save some space for dessert at a local home.

Afterward, you will end the tour at a local cafe in an iconic location. Have some Vietnamese coffee or beer and take in the scenery while reflecting on everything you ate during the tour!

    10 means perfect

    When my husband booked this tour I felt horrified: I thought that it was going to be horrible. Nothing at all!!! It’s THE BEST TOUR that we’ve done!

    It’s a different kind of tour, and not at all “a tour made for tourist”. I explain what I want to mean with that words. The tour guide (in our case, NANCY, the best guide that we’ve had in Vietnam) took us to different places were we tasted delicious Vietnamese food. The places were nice, clean, and with delicious food. Only locals we’re found in them, and we even had the opportunity of talking to the owners. Really, GREAT.

    Nancy explained everything in a perfect English, and made us feel as if we were a group of Vietnamese friends having dinner together.

    At the end of the night she took us to the city center and invite us to a boat trip and to practice Vietnamese typical games. We had a great time and I even wan the bingo!!!!!!!!

    Really, it’s a tour that you MUST do, because there’s no tourist who will dare to enter to the local restaurants or to play that kind of games alone, and with the tour and specially with Nancy, you’ll dare to do it and you’ll have a great time!

    Remember my words: don’t loose the opportunity of doing this tour!!

    No words! Truly amazing!

    Oh my god! The food! Today we did a four hour waking food tour around hoi an and it was fantastic! Kimmy, put your guide grew up in hoi an, spoke perfect English and had such a great knowledge of basically everything from food to politics.

    I love local guided food tours. We do them everywhere we go because the access and knowledge you get is fantastic! We tried so much of the local cuisine and got right out of our comfort zones (especially food safe paola).

    We tried
    1. ‘Vietnamese Pizza’ with pork liver pâté and quail eggs
    2. White rose dumplings which are made from a super secret recipe that only one man in each generation is told.
    3. Water fern cake which was rice flour with pumpkins and shrimp sauce.
    4. The BEST Bahn Mi we have ever had!
    5. Sweet sesame pudding which looked like sludge but tasted amazing
    6. Secret noodles
    7. Vietnamese coffee which was iced and so good
    8. And then we went to Mama Ngu’s house where she fed us (because we hadn’t eaten enough already) and taught about life in Vietnam!

    The best by was trying the Balut Egg which is a fertilised duck egg that is cooked in its shell. You’re basically eating a baby duck. It’s gross to think about and the taste wasn’t bad but it got us both out of our comfort zones and we both tried it.
