“This was a great way to visit the Mekong Delta and experience some of the small industries there. I had a lot of fun in my small group of 3 people.”

“The tour of Houston s underground was interesting. I wish the weather would have been clear to see the city from the 60th floor of the building we were in. The guide was very informative and had great stories of the history of Houston . Can't wait to do the pub crawl.Michael is a very good guide.”

“Agnes was a great guide and gave us all the Budapest information we needed. She was also good fun and a very nice lady.”

Hue, with its mix of history and modern life, is the gateway to the treasures of Vietnam's royal past. But we're not taking you on a stuffy history tour. Instead, we're getting under the city's skin (and into its stomach) aboard local cyclo with plenty of stops for local food (and a bit of history) along the way! 

After meeting your guide and getting a short briefing of the tour itinerary, we'll head out on a relaxing cyclo ride to our first stop, where a tasty banh beo (steamed rice discs topped with shrimp) and ram it (sticky rice dumplings) await. Both of these great flavours will wake up your taste buds in a traditional way as you snack alongside local people. After that, we'll head on foot to another stop to try a tasty Hue pancake.

Your Hue tour will continue with a beautiful ride across the elegant Perfume River via either Phu Xuan or Trang Tien bridge to reach the Royal Citadel, where you'll have a chance to try the third dish on this Hue food tour, bun bo Hue (a typical Hue beef vermicelli soup). Located by the entrance of Dong Ba gate, this place is only open at 6:30 pm but with over 100 kilos of vermicelli and five big broth pots per day, it serves up a lot of bowls while it's open! You'll taste just how great this bun bo Hue is. Then cool down with a cold beer from a vendor nearby.

We hope you're still hungry as we'll then head to a small local snack shop where you'll have the opportunity to prepare for yourself a typical egg rice cracker with beef or pâté on charcoal. This treat is a favourite dessert after a main meal for many locals, and this is a great place for you to indulge in a local experience and interact with the people of Hue. 

Your Hue street food tour ends at a local coffee house where you will be immersed in the relaxing atmosphere while sipping a lovely tea or Vietnamese salty coffee (a Hue speciality). Finally, transfer back to your hotel by cyclo to enjoy your restful evening as you please.
