18:00 Meet our guide and drivers at your hotel. Watch and listen to our guide for a safety briefing on things we need to notice while we are riding on our vintage Vespa and where to get on the Vespa the easiest way and how to sit comfortably. Simple signals to use when necessary. Our tour guide will go through our itineraries in details and ask for any special food requirements.
The first stop on our tour is a family run eatery where Hanoi claim it is the best spot for steam rolled cake Banh Cuon in town. Followed by a visit to a 45 years old restaurant serving local dish of Bun cha (grilled pork with vermicelli noodle), Banh Goi (pillow cake, local donut, fresh/fried spring roll…Then weaving through the streets where vendors sell colorful lanterns and lights for decoration in the old quarter.
Then the ride takes us to the Red river to have a glance of Hanoi city by night on both sides. Cruising along narrow streets we arrive Ngu Xa village to try different versions of Phoand other dishes then a local BBQ seafood eatery where you will get a bounty from the sea freshly caught and cooked. Our team will take us for a ride to West Lake for some stunning night time photos and watch guards march out to ceremonious music to take the flag down at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to see how much respect is paid by the locals for this daily event.
Following, we stop at a secret local Egg Coffee dated since 1946 to try out the best coffee in town to wrap up our foodie adventurous night.
22:00 Back to your hotel and say good bye!
Option: For travelers who do not keen on so many dishes we can replace with a live -acoustic music bar for some cocktails at the last part of our trip where local talents perform their Vietnamese and international top hit songs. Please advice us if you wish to do when we meet at your hotel.
