From the... Show full review ➤ Embarking on Lyon Ngo's Dine with Local Tour was an extraordinary journey into the heart of culinary authenticity. From the moment I signed up, I knew I was in for a unique experience, and Lyon did not disappoint. One of the most impressive aspects of Lyon's tour is his passion for connecting travelers with local culture through food. Each stop on the tour felt carefully curated to showcase the diverse flavors and traditions of the region. From hidden street food stalls to family-run restaurants tucked away in alleyways, Lyon introduced us to a world of gastronomic delights that we never would have discovered on our own. But it wasn't just about the food – Lyon's expertise and storytelling brought each dish to life. With infectious enthusiasm, he shared the history behind each recipe, the cultural significance of certain ingredients, and even anecdotes about the chefs and vendors we met along the way. It felt like a cultural immersion that left me with a deeper appreciation for the local community.  Hide review
