What people are saying about Ho Chi Minh City

Tasting tour - totally delicious

I recently took the Luxury tasting tour with Tiger Tours, my guide Joy was brilliant, really friendly and made me feel super safe on the back of her motor bike. The places we went to were all great and off the beaten track and the food at each place was delicious! I was totally spoiled! All drinks were included, even a beer or two at the seafood restaurant. What was great is that Tiger Tours also took photos, so when I got home I received a DropBox with all the photos from the day, which I thought was a genius idea!

Our guide, Fore, was wonderful and friendly. I highly recommend the course I went around. Lastly, it may be safer for elderly people not to overdo the panorama of the rural scenery. It may be dangerous when going down because the steps are not uniform. I happened to bring a T-shirt, so it was good, but I recommend bringing a T-shirt to change into. Everyone was sweaty lol

Well organized not only during the tour. Very likeable and open-minded young guides who enjoy introducing their customers to typical local food. Highly Recommended! Very well organized tour with young sympathic and educated ladies. Recommendation for all lovers of authentic food.

Fantastic private tour with great guides. We had very good food outside of the tourist area which was delicious. Thank you very very much

Tina, my guide is amazingly knowledgable about the food, caring and friendly. It was really fun filled trip.
