Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in selected areas of Ho Chi Minh City, and then head by taxi to a local district which is known as a street food paradise to taste authentic banh xeo and banh khot (rice pancakes) away from the tourist crowds. Stroll along a street known for its barbecue seafood vendors and head to a local-favorite restaurant to taste the best bo la lot" (beef in wild betel leaves). Sample a tasty Bot Chien, pan-fried rice cakes with egg and spring onions which is cooked by a local chef with over 25 years experience, and then quench your thirst with a sugar cane juice mixed with a little orange. Continue your food adventure with an authentic banh mi (sandwich) and experience the perfect fusion of 4 delicious flavors with one bite! Walk into the old apartments of Nguyen Thien Thuat, where you can join the locals and try the best barbecue seafood or meat with some local beer and homemade Vietnamese rice wine.

We were told to come with empty stomachs and glad we did! Our guide J-Kay was amazing!! Super friendly and led us around some amazing food spots which we would have never found ourselves. His knowledge was top class and you can see he is very proud of his heritage and his people - it came through all night! Look out for the awesome surprise at the end - I will not spoil it. We highly recommend J-Kay and the tour. See you next time we are in HCMC! Greg and Cathy

The Private Street Food walking Tour was a delightful experience. My guide Huy was happy to allow me to merge with my friends tour lead by Finn. The three of us had two wonderful guides who talked knowledgeably about cultural matters, architectural history as well as food. They both had a great knowledge of the preparation of the food as well as the cultural significance. The guides at all times were aware of our physical safety and comfort. The tour was so much more than just wonderful street food. It finished with a walk through the flower market which just summed up the beauty of the area. I thoroughly recommend the private tour to any traveller but especially single females. A great safe way to see local street life at night. My thanks to Huy (and Finn). They both were wonderful guides.

Had a very nice private tour along restaurants and food stalls that are really authentic. So you really get the food that is not adapted to western people. It also explains what the herbs/leaves add to the dish. I also learned more about the history and culture of Vietnam. A very good and fun experience to do
