I tried a variety of things I would have probably not tried a year before. There was so much food and drink so come hungry or you will be needing to say no a lot or be carried away

Saigon street food tour with Thuong Vu

Excellent tour. Guide was there to greet us when we arrived at meeting point 10 minutes early. Was introduced to typical Vietnamese food and drink. We arrived by cruise ship, not able to eat again that night! Ms. Vu was most helpful, arranged taxi for our return to ship after tour.

The tour was well planned but the guide was totally useless. He he took us to the five eating places and 2 drinking places as noted. But he was in a mighty hurry to finish the tour off and did not give any information about the food.

Bic was an excellent walking street food tour guide. We experienced great food, the crazy traffic, the wonderful city of Ho Chi Minh, and great company on this tour. Bic was fun, patient, very knowledgeable, energetic, and lovely to be around. It rained on us for about 30 mins and I thought that was going to ruin the tour; however, Bic did not allow the rain to stop us experiencing the greatness of Ho Chi Minh City. Thank you very much Bic.

We had the good fortune to have Bic as our guide, she was friendly, informative and really looked after is, in a word delightful. There was a good variety of tasty food (you won’t go hungry), I’m now addicted to the iced coffee and the Saigon Beer’s pretty good too. All in all a great night

Not Great.

Had high hopes for this tour based on other reviews. Our guide told our small group of three to call him “Fox”, but I don’t know what his real name was. Yes, we ate food. But Fox gave us virtually no explanation, no context, and not much of anything. He’d walk ahead of us and frankly I think he would have just kept walking if we had not followed. Also, he actually ate everything on the tour. Usually the guides don’t eat; I think he did the tour just to have dinner.
