If you are contemplating what to do with a few hours this is a wonderful experience. Our Tour Guide Belle Nguyen was fabulous! She has so much enthusiasm and you can tell she really loves her work. In review we were picked up at our Airbnb by 2 Cyclos for a tour around the city. It was so relaxing and exciting to see everyone going to and fro. We were greeted many times on our ride with wide smiles and big hellos and it made us feel special. Ms Belle rode her motor and followed closely behind and was in constant contact with us in case we needed anything. After about an hour ride on the cyclos we were dropped off at the pier area for a Dinner Cruise. The Indochina Queen was huge and it was completely full which gives you an idea how popular this tour is. Ms Belle seated us and made sure our food choices were translated to the staff. She then departed and returned after dinner to escort us out to the deck to enjoy the rest of the cruise. She made this tour unforgettable. .

Book this tour! We have traveled around the world and done our share of food tours, but this definitely is one of the best we have ever done. Tonya and Alex (guides) were delightful, personable, and eager to share their knowledge and experiences with us. They also showed us the hidden gems that tourists otherwise wouldn’t be able see. Instead of taking us to tourist traps, they took us to different districts where locals eat and hang out. The food was absolutely delicious (be sure to pace yourselves—we were stuffed!) and the tour also sprinkled in other cultural aspects, such as seeing a old neighborhoods, apartments, and flower markets. Riding on the back of the motorbikes gave us a cool glimpse of how many locals commute and navigate through the crazy traffic! We would do this all over again for this very experience!

Don't wait, sign up now! My guide was a tiny build biker name Bien from Street Food Man, and she is a total rockstar!!! The ride throughout was steady and comfortable, you are in safe and good hands. The quality of the street food was awesome and way beyond my expectation! Beef stew was my favourite, coconut ice cream was the other. Ask if your guide knows about the "mentos" flavour when you hangout at the bành xèo place, otherwise consult Bien (wink). I had a smashing time, totally recommend this and will definitely do it again when I am back in the city!!

My partner and I did the vegan street food tour and had such a wonderful experience with our lovely tour guides Phuong and Lisa! They were incredibly friendly and offered deep insight into Vietnamese culture and stories behind the food we ate. Not only did the food taste great but we also got to see a side of Ho Chi Minh City that we would not have otherwise seen. We highly recommend the tour. Thanks again Phuong and Lisa!

It was a fantastic tour getting to know Ho Chi Minh City. Bien and Billy picked us up at the hotel and took us 4.5 hours more through the city. They speak super good English, which makes the tour nice. The food is all super tasty and they take any allergies into account. In a word FANTASTIC!
