We highly recommend this company! We did the street food tour around Saigon and it was amazing! We saw places we would never have found alone and ate like the real locals do. Our guide Tham was extremely friendly and helpful, after the tour we ended up sitting and having a beer with her and learning about local life. Highly... More

She said we were her family for the day and she treated us that way from beginning to end. The trip was very interesting as the attractions were low key and not very touristy. it was timed so well we... More

Did the Mekong home stay, delta two day homestay with Thanh and it was pretty cool. Boat trip on the delta, coconut candy factory, sam pan, etc.... all very interesting and relaxing and a great way to sample the delta and see things it would take you days to get around to. The family at the home stay was lovely.... More

I'd highly recommend the Mekong trip with intrepid urban adventures. Short trip with 4 hours on an island but you get to see a lot of fruit and veg try honey and see coconut candy being made. Linda gave good insight into the life of Vietnamese and I learnt a lot about the culture and change from her. Gives a... More

We had a wonderful day out with our guideThang Truong who showed us the highlights of Ho Chi Minh City as well as getting about and not feeling so much like a tourist. He was fun to be with and had very interesting and knowledgeable information to share about his city and also his own life in Vietnam.

Due to the language barrier, and my mispronunciation of the simple Vietnamese greetings I had tried to learn, a tour was a really great way to get a better understanding of the Vietnamese culture from a local. I was thrilled when after boarding the bus the guide passed out a reference list of common phrases and we practiced the pronunciation... More

Ms Linda was a great guide. Very helpful and extremely informative. We did two tours with her - Cyclos and Chi Chi tunnels. Both excellent! Kristine from Australis

I did the one night overnight stay at a farmstay in the Mekong Delta. It was only me on the tour with my lovely guide Mary, and it was a very relaxing way to see an area that I've long wanted to visit. I really enjoyed having a female guide as it's more often the case in developing countries to... More

We wanted a sight seeing tour of Ho Chi Minh that did not involve motorbikes and it was harder than I thought! This tour was a good combination of walking and Cyclos (rickshaws). We started out at the post office, then went to the Notredame Catherdral, both beautiful examples of French colonial architecture. We walked through the park to Palace... More

We had a very interesting evening with our guide, Marie. Besides the food, she was very informing about other aspects of life in Vietnam. The food was simply amazing. Everything we tasted was fresh and delicious. A main reason to join these street food tours is to go to places you wouldn't find on your own and this tour definitely... More
