I cannot remember all the names of food that we have tried during the tour. Some of them were Banh mi, bun cha, pho, che, etc. It’s suitable for food lover. Try it!

I can highly recommend letting Vietnam Tour Fun arrange your next trip to Vietnam. We may not be the easiest guests and whatever we requested, they got it fixed and you never felt you were alone with the problems. It can be hard to establish trust over social media, but they were always good at calling back on one’s inquiries and it’s really nice to help them.
