An inside look with a delicious meal
Robin_S, Mar 2020
My wife and I had a tour with Finn on our first night in Saigon/HCMC. He was incredible. Knowledgeable, friendly, charming and helpful. We walked away with not only an incredible dining experience, but insight into Vietnamese society and its history. Not to mention some recommendations for the rest of our time in Saigon. Thanks Finn, we loved it!

Street Food Tour
John_R, Mar 2020
We were picked up at our hotel by our guide ( MrJ?) who proceeded to give us a lively and informative tour of district 3 in Saigon, as apparently many locals still call it. The food stops all supplied excellent and freshly cooked food. So much of it that my wife and I had to start sharing helpings. Our guide explained all the dishes and ingredients very well and gave us lots of information about the area. Very interested also to have the former GI apartments pointed out. Our guide was a delight and would happily recommend him to anyone. When my wife was tiring he took some short cuts without cutting any food visits

Excellent tour
Yvonne_G, Mar 2020
Had great evening. Steven our tour guide was excellent, very informative about the food and Vietnam. We got to try fantastic dishes and see more of the city outside the tourist area. Would highly recommend this tour.

Another Great Time
Jon_P, Mar 2020
We book foodie tours in most new cities to which we travel, both in the US and abroad- always through VIATOR, which has never failed us- mostly by providing a sure-fire method to contact local operators. We rely heavily on ratings of other travelers when picking from multiple operators. This tour with Street Food Man was again, excellent. Food was awesome. Our guide, "Seven" (note that here in SEA, people will go by what number child they are in a family), was knowledgeable not only of the foods, but the areas in Saigon we walked through, making the tour much more than just great food. We would highly recommend this tour. Only one caveat (to many foodie tours- especially if one chooses a street food tour): several of the stops were literally on the street, among the bustling local people. This is a huge part of the fun- but folks who prefer inside dining in a more private atmosphere should look for these features in reviews. Go for it- this tour was great fun. And a lot of food. One last thought- while we enjoyed all the food, our hosts, including Seven, are very OK with one not eating something, or finishing the plate.

An experience not to be missed
geoffreym_p, Mar 2020
Excellent evening. Finn met me at the hotel on time and guided me to some off the beaten track establishments for a culinary and historical education. Plenty of food and variety, as much as you could eat, although Finn also arranged for small portions when it was clear I was filling up! Definitely not to be missed if you’re a foodie!

Good Experience
Satish K, Jan 2020
Amazing food experience. The guide was quite friendly and took us to more places. I had to stop him as I was really full.
Amazing tour with the best guide ever!
Justin_S, Jan 2020
I set out on the evening food tour with J-Kay in Ho Chi Minh, and had the best time. The food at each stop was incredible and the pace of the tour was well managed. Most importantly, my guide J-Kay was really great to work with. He was a young student who was articulate and entertaining throughout the entire tour. Without a doubt, he made things super fun and I'd highly recommend him and the tour!
Well-crafted tour, great tour guide
Edward_K, Dec 2019
Our tour guide, Huy, did an excellent job. His English skills were top-notch, he was friendly and knowledgeable, and very polite and competent. The tour itself was well-crafted to provide a mix of different foods. The only issue--so much food! Eat sparingly at first to ensure you have room to taste everything. Recommend this tour to anyone seeking a taste of Vietnam, and definitely recommend Huy as a guide.
Eating like a local

Would never have done this on our own. Su was fabulous. Took us to a neighborhood and showed us how to eat like a local! She was great.
Fascinating Experience
Mashauna_G, Nov 2019
Rachel was an excellent, Informative, and funny guide. For our first time in Vietnam, this food tour was a must. It was an authentic look at not only the food, but of the local life of Vietnam. Food was DELICIOUS and fulling. I highly recommend Street Food Man in general and Rachel in particular. Thank you for the AMAZING experience.

Fantastic Food
toddv166, Sep 2019
Fabulous and informative walking tour of HCMC. The tour is all about the food and it is simply amazing. Our guide "An" was very friendly, knowledgeable and super keen to ensure we appreciated the Vietnamese street food culture. This is a must do if you travel to HCMC.
Wonderful Day in the Mekong Delta
toddv166, Sep 2019
We had a wonderful day in the Mekong Delta with Grasshopper Tours lead by our exceptional guide Klas. The bike tour covered 26km and was at an easy pace with plenty of recovery stops. Ample opportunity to stop and take photo's, talk to the locals and immerse oneself in the surroundings. The post ride lunch was delicious and the river cruise a perfect way to end a tour of the Mekong Delta. Klas was very knowledgeable, friendly and had a real passion for his job - the perfect guide.
