The two girls who took us on the tour were university students, fluent in English, and knew lots about the city and the local culture. Most of this information was conveyed while riding through the busy city streets. The food was... More

We were a group of 5 adults (myself, in my 50s, my husband in his 60s, our twin daughters of 20 and one of their boyfriends, 20s) and it was definitely the highlight of our stay in Ho... More

Well planned, safe and culturally a great experience. The guides were very knowledgeable about the food and the Vietnamese history and culture. Despite the crazy traffic of the city, I felt safe the whole time. My friend and I had a great time. Food was awesome. Highly recommend this tour.

I have done this tour twice and both times have been excellent. You are picked up by a guide who takes you to try some of the best food in Ho Chi Minh. The drives are safe, knowledgable and speak English. The aim of the tour is to explore areas outside of the main tourist district.

We did this tour on our first afternoon. We had wanted to do the evening tour but because of our time constraints had to do the afternoon one instead and were so glad we did. Not only did we have fantastic food and guides (thanks, Tien) but we got to see so much of Saigon as well which would have... More
