We really enjoyed cooking class, Aroka Travel gave me a different way to see the city. Thumbs up!!! We will come to Hanoi again and do the Trang An tour.


You should do the Hanoi city tour with this travel company. They do great job. They have very professional guides to lead you through the ancient city.We were very impressive the cooking class by Aroka. That is the best thing in our trip. “pho cuon” is so so yummy, try at least 1 time in your life.


I did not have a lot of time in Hanoi and was traveling solo for the first time. I decided on this tour because I wanted to see the city and didn’t know where to start. I was picked up at my hotel and I was the only one on the tour. My tour guide was names Lucky and he did an amazing job of taking me around the city and was very knowledgeable on all the history. It was nice that all entrance fees, tea, and lunch were included on the tour. The pho that we had for lunch was the best I had on the entire trip. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone going to Hanoi.


We did a cooking class at orchid and it was just amazing! Since there were no other participants my boyfriend and I had a personal cooking class. The chef is really nice and explains everything you’d like to know – especially during the visit to the market. We had a lot of fun and the food was delicious! They also have a vegetarian menu! Highly recommended!!:)


Nem, Pho Chicken, Bun Thang, … are all those that can be found here. The taste is very typical of Hanoi. I went to visit beautiful places, learn culture, history here
