Traveller Tips

I strongly recommend this experience for small groups, with empty stomachs, and willingness to try new foods.
to Bánh Xèo don't worry you'll get it once you try it the spread of food that night took us from the very North of Vietnam to the South.

Loi is a great tour guide. I enjoyed the tour and taste of the many different street food. Had a great time.
Best street food tour ever!!!
Stefanie_B, Mar 2023
We loved our street food tour on the motorbikes so much! Linh and Steve were so much fun and so friendly!!! Loved getting to know them! They were so knowledgeable about the city and all the different local districts they took us too! I was so stuffed by the end of this! All the local food they had us try was so yummy and something I wouldn’t have found or tried on my own. Highly recommend this tour and to see the sights of Saigon!
Great food tour and cultural experience
Nathalie_M, Mar 2023
Had a wonderful tour with the lovely Cathrine & Steve. Safe, fun, courteous and knowledgeable, this was more than just a food experience, we learnt about culture and history as well. I was even given a rose for International women’s day, a kind and thoughtful gesture. Glad we saved the locations on your Google maps as we loved the food and returned on our own for more 😋. Highly recommend. Great value, …and make sure to pace yourself., we were stuffed by the last stop.
Yummy food tour with options for vegetarians
Shefali_M, Mar 2023
We went on a walking door tour with Ngân. One person in the group is a vegetarian and she was very accommodating to the diet restrictions. Ngân was so nice and did a great job describing Vietnamese food, culture and life. There were 5 food stops and 1 brief history tour of an apartment building that American troops lived in. The walk can get a bit long so wear comfortable shoes!
Very good food tour.
Brian_D, Mar 2023
Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. The food was excellent and had good variety. My friend is vegetarian and that was not a problem. One piece of advice, pace yourself. We ate quite a bit in the first stop or two and by the end of the evening we were hard pressed to even try a little bit of what was offered.
Absolutely Amazing!!
Glenn_F, Mar 2023
Absolutely Amazing! If you read this, stop and book it NOW!!! Food is amazing and the scooter experience is insane!!! Controlled Chaos. You learn so much more about the food, people and history. Guide was super friendly, met me at the hotel and then jumped on the scooter. Book it! You won’t regret it.

More than just the food!
Anthony_H, Feb 2023
I had an amazing excursion experience with my guide Ngan. This tour was far more than just the food. I’ll say it again! You are not just paying for food, it is a full experience and immersion into the food/lifestyle culture and history of Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) City. Don’t get me wrong the food locations picked to my request of non-meat were amazing! I have added some of the foods I ate on this tour to the top of my list. Most of the knowledge and facts that Ngan had given me of food culture, city life, and local history were far past my expectations. A huge thank you to Ngan and the whole tour team! I would 100% book it again.
A wonderful experience in Saigon.
pablo_d, Feb 2023
Absolutely wonderful experience. We learned and saw so much of the city and its various neighborhoods, and sampled delicious foods of all sorts. Our guides, Gia Linh and Do Huu Tinh, we’re great scooter drivers through the chaotic traffic of Saigon and were absolutely delightful. Don’t miss this tour!
Great food tour
Francis_B, Feb 2023
This is a great tour. My guide Linh was very interesting and knowledgeable. The food is awesome. The bun bo hue is still on my mind.

MUST DO - And ask for Jason and Tien
Deborah_R, Feb 2023
My husband and I were in Siagon just for about 24 hours on a cruise. But we really wanted to immerse ourselves in the city and the food scene. Our initial communications with Hung was prompt and super easy - he even arrange for a slight change to our itinerary so that we could have an amazing bowl of Pho!! But the best part of our trip was our time with our guides - Tien and Jason. They were so friendly and welcoming and made us feel very safe while riding on their motor bikes with them. And doing a food tour on motor bikes is the only way as you will get to the best places that you could never get to in a walking tour. Jason and Tien made sure to describe all the dishes to us, tell us about their history and origin and also made sure we were having a great time and enjoying the food. We had such great conversation with them throughout our evening - they truly made it a memory that we will never forget! Thank you to Hung, Tien and Jason for such an amazing experience and the best way to embrace Vietnam.
Very cool.. very unique!
Nora_M, Feb 2023
This has to be my favorite food tour experience so far! My tour guide was Quy and he was a rockstar! I traveled alone so my tour was just him taking me around to the different districts in Saigon to try food! He was very thoughtful in his method and the route and choices felt very personalized. Everything he introduced me to was delicious! He even took me to try food I have never heard about. He is very knowledgeable in the history and facts about Saigon. I so enjoyed his tour. In fact, I am referring my mom to tour with him when she comes next month!
Great experience
Andrew_R, Feb 2023
Great night with our two guides last night, both my friend and I enjoyed the tasting of the local delicacies and some historic sites. Thoroughly recommend
Unique experience of street food culture
Rodney_W, Feb 2023
This tour took me to many different parts of Ho Cho Minh City that I would not have experienced otherwise. The food was great, but I really appreciated the way that Long linked the food to the Vietnamese culture, and the interesting conversation we had throughout the tour.
Great experience!
rmszy, Feb 2023
Bhi was an excellent food tour guide and driver. Lots of food and all good. I would highly recommend.
Book it. Book it now.
Marissa_H, Feb 2023
Take this tour!!! The food: fantastic. Every item was something I would never successfully order or find myself, but now I know what to ask for. The tour: Really great context on both the ingredient and food, plus really authentic information and look at life for Vietnamese people in HCM. The guides: I was paired with a couple so three people, three scooters, three guides. The students were engaging, high energy, and really sharp. They had excellent english and we could talk about all kinds of things, making for a really fun and interesting conversation at every stop.

Long was my tour guide for the experience. He started off saying that his goal was to make the tour like a friend was showing you around the city and it definitely felt like that. He goes into a lot of the detail behind the various foods, like how it's made and how to eat it. Even showed me some non-food things around the city as well. Really really enjoyed it. :) Thanks Long :)
Fab Foodie Buzz Around Saigon

Amazing variety of food to try - all delicious - and enthusiastic knowledgeable drivers. Don't miss this one.
Great tour in HCMC
Carl_M, Jan 2023
Tour guides went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience despite many restaurants being closed for Tet holiday!
Andrew_S, Jan 2023
The students who led our tour, Van and Tung, were delightful and fantastic guides to the city. They customized the tour based on what we had and hadn't tried yet, and showed us parts of the city we never would have seen otherwise. Highly recommeded!
Must Do Tour in Ho Chi Minh
Christopher_H, Jan 2023
If you’re in Ho Chi Minh for a few days I couldn’t recommend this tour enough. Riding on the back of a motorbike, you’ll se parts of Saigon that you would never gotten to see otherwise. We stopped by about 4-5 different places each with amazing food local to the area. Our guide Ji was incredibly knowledgeable and insightful. This is a 100% must do tour for anyone heading to the city.
