“The Italians and Spanish, the Chinese and Vietnamese see food as part of a larger, more essential and pleasurable part of daily life. Not as an experience to be collected or bragged about – or as a ritual like filling up a car – but as something else that gives pleasure, like sex or music, or a good nap in the afternoon.”

The “Heart & Soul of Hanoi Old Quarter” tour really lived up to the hype! We learned interesting facts while touring the neighborhood, received generous & delicious portion sizes of a variety of foods. Joe was passionate about food and really took the time to get to know all four of us. Most importantly, the food was AMAZING! This tour was fantastic and I would 100% recommend it for every Hanoi visitors! I made sure my friends will contact FOH when they come.

Though my travel agent recommended them, we were unsure about the tour, but we went and LOVED it! They are so much more than just being walked from place to place, eating Hanoi street food. The food is the vessel, but you also get to experience the city in a way that goes way below the surface. FOH made me feel like a true insider! Would highly recommend to any foodie or someone looking to see a different side of the normal Hanoi touristy activities.

It's not just about the food, although that was delicious. Lots of history, too. Aside from the great food we saw various entertainment spots famous in the area, met the family who make rice noodles for pho restaurants in the city, learned what lies under Hoan Kiem Lake, walked through hidden alleys where people share really small pace, and lots of other interesting facts. Highly recommend this company!

My first delicious street food in Hanoi city was in 2002 when I was leaving my village for the college. It was a lovely bowl of pipping hot noodle soup, Pho, served by a family living on the bank of the Red River, and that was the best fresh noodle with the richest stock I’ve ever eaten. The flavors of the noodle dish that day was the beginning of Flavors of Hanoi, even though I didn’t realize it at the time.
