Sensational Saigon

Fantastic tour: guides were lovely, food was delicious and you really felt part of the city as opposed to just being a tourist. 5 stars are just not enough!

I was a bit skeptical before I booked the tour as I wasn't sure if it's just another tourist trap to rip you off. But I booked it and I am glad that I did. Yes it's still more expensive than you go for a meal yourself but the experience is so worth the money. I think I was the... More

This is an exceptional way to experience Ho Chi Minh for first time visitors wishing to immerse themselves into Vietnamese culture, and those who are food lovers. The tour is well organised (even with 20 people on our tour), the guides are really friendly, speak excellent English, attentive and focused on you having an awesome time. The tour kicks off...

I had a rough start to my time in Ho Chi Minh.... I took a cyclo ride and the driver took me to a desolate street and demanded all of my money. So I was a little wary of what else was to come of my time in southeast Asia. Fortunately, I had a great time on my Back of... More

This tour on the back of a bike was just amazing. You got a real feel of what it's like to travel in the chaos at every intersection. Then the selected stalls where married really well. My tour guide was very cool and know most things I wanted to know. Well worth it.

Wow! We did the Saigon Street food tour and I must say it is a definite must for any visitor to Saigon. Excellently run by very friendly, professional and safety aware tour staff. A great pace tour with multiple stops to sample much of the local street food that this great city has to offer. The food was divine, the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, it is a great concept, and a lot of fun. The guides are all very friendly. It is a great way to experience Ho Chi Minh and Vietnamese food in a short amount of time. We found it a great start to our weekend trip, and they gave us plenty of suggestions for things to... More

This was great fun and an excellent introduction to some fabulous HCMC street food. Our very friendly guides were professional, spoke excellent English and getting to know them during our afternoon session was as much a part of the experience as the food. Did the afternoon tour with my 13yo son and we both loved it - my wife was... More
