Nancy from Hoi An Food Tours is the absolute best! She knows Hoi An so well, knows when the best times to get the best foods are, and has great details about each dish. The white rose dumplings were perfect, banh mi from the Banh Mi Queen was great, as well as the other 4 other dishes! We got to join the local bingo game (and won!) and seeing Old Town at night was magical. If you really want to see and experience Hoi An, Nancy from Hoi An Food Tours is who you want to show you.

Very authentic street food tour in Hoi An. Country typical food not for wimps. Flora was really great and didn't leave out any answer. With her warm manner, she gently guided us through the culinary world of Vietnam and Hoi An.

We really enjoyed our food tour. Bong showed us some great spots in Hoi An that we wouldn’t have found by ourselves and introduced us to several new foods that we otherwise would’ve missed. Highly recommend!

The weather was atrocious but the tour went ahead anyways and we and our guide made the most of it. He even ended us taking us out for a few drinks after in the locals spot

We kept going despite the weather. Super guide! What an experience!
