What a wonderful experience! Tony and his team of guides made for an unforgettable tour. This food was fantastic and it was great seeing many parts of the city. They balanced tying in history of the city as well in a great way. The team of guides are very fun and upbeat — I highly recommend to anyone visiting.

We did the tour with Ted and Nhan and it was just amazing! Guys not only had us taste very nice local specialties, but also explained how to best eat every meal and provided us with many other useful and interesting information. They are great drivers, which is super important considering the traffic is quite hectic here and were such a nice company for the evening. Thanks a million for a great experience ☺️

Jason was excellent! His English was really good and he was extremely polite and took the time to explain each of the dishes that we tried. Very good driver too, he managed the manic streets expertly. The tour itself was very good value for money, we went to places I would never have even attempted to check out and having things explained by a local just gives puts things into context, you know? Highly recommend this tour + the guide 👌👌👌
