Full description
Meet your guide at your accommodation at 5:30 PM and set off right away on the back of a motorbike. Get ready to experience the insane Vietnam traffic! The only thing that really stands between you and some awesome vegan food is the ‘daily-dice-with-death’ traffic situation, but don't worry, your guide is an experienced driver and will calmly lead you through the traffic. Your first stop is in District 3, a hip new spot with a relaxed, historical environment all around. Here you’ll kick the tour off with a famous story about a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself for protesting the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government. After learning about the history of the people of Saigon, head up to a local vegan restaurant, a calm spot combined with nostalgic vibes, where you’ll savor "Banh Xeo" - vegan Vietnamese rice pancake served with fresh vegetables.   Coming over District 10 then going off-the-beaten-path and diving into Saigon’s deep-rooted culture. Visit a true maze of the biggest wholesale flower market and a local market inside to have an authentic local experience in hidden alleys by grilling banana crispy crackers and local hangouts that you should not miss out on. Don’t get too comfy among the cushions as we’ve got to hurry to experience the highest pagoda of the city "Viet Nam Quoc Tu" located in a quiet space with its spectacular architecture before closing! From there, cross the road to the most famous restaurant in Saigon to sample vegan food. At the peak of culinary innovation, let your senses run wild with carefully planned Vietnamese dishes featuring sustainable ingredients and sip on your old-fashioned water or vegan beer. Drive to District 5 and pass the local streets of the nightlife. Take a spin around on the journey along the banks of the Saigon River in District 4 - The perfect time to cross the bridge to Saigon’s bustling night scene. After getting a welcoming breeze from the back of the bike, we’ll finish you off with a sweet treat such as smoothies or a dish of fresh fruit.

I’m so glad I did this tour. Elle Tran was my guide. She was fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, a great driver, and her English was excellent. During the evening, we crossed paths with other Street Man Tour guides who were all very friendly (said hello, asked how my tour was going, and they joked around with each other like they really enjoy their jobs, etc.). The food was delicious. I got to try some new foods and learn a little about the city. I highly recommend this! (I almost didn’t sign up for the tour, because I wasn’t sure if it would be fun or not, but it was a great experience!)

As a nervous 50+ woman about to go on a scooter for the first time I felt totally safe from the moment I met Clay my driver outside our hotel. My daughter & I thoroughly had the best Vegan & vegetarian Tour than we could ever imagined. We went to places you would never find yourself. We integrated with the real Saigon people & districts away from District 1. Had some history and fun along the way too. I cannot recommend highly enough this tour. The food was amazing. Clay and Seven took total care of us. Just book it - totally worth it.

It was a wonderful way to spend New Year's Evening with our excellent guides Min and Vihn from Street Food Man. We enjoyed a delicious local vegan food especially the rice pancake, coconut ice cream and lotus seed milk juice. Besides the food we learned a lot about the culture and history of Vietnam. The guides were amazing - very friendly, talkative and with very good English. The most important they kept us save on the motobikes. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the local cuisine, expand the knowledge of Vietnam and see Ho Chi Min with another pair of eyes.
