Hanoi Cooking Class

Would you like to be able to return home from your time in Vietnam, to dazzle your family and friends with mouth-watering delicacies like Banana Flower Salad, Pho, Bun Cha and Fresh Spring Rolls? With us, you can learn to cook Vietnam's most iconic dishes in our tranquil garden in the middle of the bustling city.


To start our tour, we pick you up from your hotel or guest house. First, our guide shows you the best way to sit on the back of a motorbike for safety. Then we head on to one of the oldest and hidden local coffee shop of Hanoi to enjoy Hanoi's special coffee. At the coffee shop, we share our tour itinerary, and an introduction on the history, culture and life in Hanoi, Vietnam. After the coffee, we are back to our motorbike and we start your journey. We enjoy our ride to must-see places and even some places that tourists have never seen or heard about. We go through some backstreets, some busy traffic with your local experienced drivers. We visit historical places with beautiful French architecture like Hanoi Opera House, Hanoi Friendship Cultural Palace, Long Bien bridge, Westlake, etc. We learn and share together about the East and about the West.

What a great way to kickstart your motorbike tour than getting a perfect egg coffee, a genius combination of protein and caffeine for you to be fully awake. We also introduce you a variety of tasty Vietnamese foods and drinks along the way such as Banh Mi, Bia Hoi and enjoy lunch at one of the most unique local restaurants in Hanoi, the local way. We make sure that you will have a happy stomach and a happy heart before going back to your hotel or guest house. We do not only show you some wonderful buildings, and cool spots, we also share with you the stories behind these places, which are hard to find by yourself. It is the best way for you to fully understand how people live, work, entertain and pray in the S-shaped country called Vietnam. We are looking forward to being your local guide here in Hanoi.
