    The food experience is one of the most beautiful i have ever had. I could never imagine that these places are real and that exist in Vietnam. Casey our tour guide explained everything we tasted, all of them were tasty and delicious. This tour was special because of the guide, she was so friendly and happy person like being a friend of mine. Thank you Casey, hope to see you soon.

    A true flavour of the city

    We were wary of eating street food but this sounded like the ideal option. The guide was very knowledgeable and took us to places that we never would have gone ourselves. The traditional food was delicious, particularly the pancake but there was so much food that were unable to finish it. We opted for the taxi transfer rather than the bike!

    friendly lovely student guides

    We did our food tour shortly after getting off the plane to HCMC and it was an amazing introduction to the real city where local eat. Our lovely guides, Casey and Tuan, were fantastic. They were informative but also casual, it was like hanging out with mates on a Friday night. The food we had was great. I even got to have a go at making some rice paper rolls. This should be the first thing on your list of things to do in HCMC.
