I can’t recommend this tour enough, if you have time in Ho Chi Minh City and love food this tour is something you absolutely have to do!

Our guides Kelly, Thi, Mac, Tai, Luke, Richie, Scott, Kellie and Jack were absolutely amazing. They were all incredibly friendly and so easy to talk to. They shared insights about the city’s history, culture, and cuisine, making the experience educational as well as enjoyable.

Although the idea of being on a motorbike seems daunting our drivers made everyone feel super comfortable and safe on the back of their bikes. Special thanks to Jack for being the best driver!

The food was incredible, we stopped at places we would not have found if we didn’t go on this tour. The portions are a good size and I would recommend pacing your self so that you can try all the foods – trust me you do not want to miss out on any of them. We were a bigger group (10 people), we appreciated being able to make small changes to the meals as we had people with food intolerances and the guides were more than happy to accomodate them.

The food aside – it was amazing to be able to explore the city with locals and learn more about Vietnam. Hi Chi Minh City is beautiful and full of life. It was fantastic to see the city truely come alive at night.

I highly recommend this tour if you’re in Saigon; it will act as a great and concise intro into some hard-to-find delicacies that Vietnam has to offer. My tour guides (Khôi, John, Kelly, hi) are extremely knowledgeable about this city and they will always treat you with kindness, which is much appreciated in a foreign environment.
