As a Vietnamese-American I know what good Vietnamese food should taste like and I can confidently say that this street food tour did not disappoint. The tour guide took us to some hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path places that served authentic and delicious Vietnamese dishes. It was clear that a lot of care and thought went into selecting the food stops on the tour, and it was clear that they were all top-notch. It was great to be able to try a variety of different traditional dishes and it was definitely a highlight of my trip. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to both locals and tourists looking for a taste of the best Vietnamese street food. Yen and Phat were amazing guides!

My favorite thing I did in all 6 days visiting HCM. If my group didn’t wait until the last day to do it, I bet we would’ve done it more than once. The group was so amazing and we did it with ~13 students. Everyone had such a positive attitude and I thought I would be nervous riding on the back of the scooter but my guy put me totally at ease. Would 100% recommend this to anyone going to HCM in the near future. Best activity ever to really see the culture and working people of HCM!!! Thanks again guys!!

It was a nice experience. We tried some tours in vietnam before but this was one of the best as we didn’t expect much. We liked riding on a motorbikes like a locals, the food was really very good and our guides were young, so we didn’t feel bad that they have to cary our weight on motorbikes :D They could also speak english, so we could ask anything and learn something about the food that we ate. It was a good choice, we definitely recommend.
