We booked two tours with this company - the cooking half day tour and the food on foot tour. The cooking tour was run by Nathan and was brilliant fun.

This was an amazing experience. Lily and our driver picked us up at 8 am for the two-hour drive to the countryside, passing by beautiful scenery, with farmers at work on their rice paddies with the mountains as their backdrop. Then we arrived at the Yen stream, where we rode on a rowboat (powered by one very strong woman! 💪)... More

LIly spoke great English and helped explain the food and helped us gain a better understanding of the culture. We loved every single place we went. She even convinced us to... More

After really enjoying food tours in Bangkok and Saigon, I decided rather last minute to book one for my first proper night in Hanoi, so googled and found this one run by Vietnam Awesome Travel. The tour lasted just over three hours, starting with a cyclo pick-up from my hotel to get to the first stop. I was in a... More

Great street food tour with Lily. Was referred to awesome street food tour by friends who have done before. We (my best friend and I. 30-something foodies) lucked out with Lily. She spoke the best English of anyone I've met in Vietnam and had such a good sense of humour, style and street smarts. She knew the best dish at... More

Vietnam Awesome travel organized our 3 day Halong Bay trip (on Indochina Sails), a beautiful start to our visit to Vietnam. As others suggest, take the 3 day trip! The ride from Hanoi to Halong bay is 3 1/2 hours, leaving less than 24 hours on the ship for those choosing the 2 day trip. 3 days was perfect and... More

Nathan was the guide for the cooking class and was not only excellent on every level but extremely friendly too. He even emailed the recipes of our menu for the day to us. I... More

Thanks to trip advisor we booked a couple of half day tours with Awesome - the young lady who took us on the walking food tour in old French quarters, was lovely as was Rocky, who took us around to the main sights - their knowledge of local history made the tours even more special.
