Fabulous evening food tour by motorbike, all of the stops were great, amazing food that I'd never have come by alone, would never have known what to order. My tour guide Will was really knowledgeable both on the food side but also the area, gave me lots of great tips and showed me areas I couldn't possibly have found on my own. A genuinely nice, fun, polite guy, i had a fantastic evening.

Had a lovely evening with Bao and Linh. They picked us up at our hotel and were very enthudiastic. Drive us safely around the city, seeing a lot of the city and trying a lot of delicious food. We also learnt a lot about the history of Vietnam and we got to ask a lot of questions. All in all an amazing evening with a lot of new experiences we wouldn’t have gotten on our own. Thank you Bao and Linh!

Hands down the most amazing experience you can get in HCMC. Ngan, Vivian, and Asher are the most warm, accommodating, and friendly guides ever! They enthusiastically toured us in the best local places. We feasted on such excellent food in areas that we probably wouldnt have reached on our own. it was even more amazing to do it on a motorcycle! We were so full and happy at the end of the night. Youre missing out if you dont get to have this tour, highly highly recommend!!
