Do yourself a favour if you are going to HCMC. Book this tour before you leave home or as soon as you arrive, so you are not disappointed. The guides and drivers are all just lovely people and will make it a memorable experience for you.

We did the Night Street Food Tour and it was a great. The guides are in their 20s and are a fun and enthusiastic bunch. Despite being so young, many of them already have many years of motorbike riding experience (they do start early) and so we were in good hands. The ride is in itself an experience in the... More

Excellent foods, guides, support, and pace. For folks who are apprehensive about being on the back of a motorbike, don't be. The driver I had was really skilled in moving around the crazy traffic of the city and was comfortable with my xl size. Highly recommend this tour.

I would certainly recommend this tour and had a great time. It was a good, comprehensive insight into the entire city and I feel I... More

Street and street foods are one of the best way to catch the soul of Saigon. But as foreigner, it is also a long journey of trap. They bring us to places with the food is good and safe with no bad surprise. It is very well organized and the students who are the tour guides are very friendly. I... More

My dad and I went on a street-food Ttour and it just was so much fun! The food was really tasty, as the drinks. The tour guides were super friendly and always asking questions about where we came from, our different cultures and so on, there was no awkward silence, just friendly people around the table This tour is awesome...

We were recommended the night time, street food tour by friends and now want to pass the recommendation onto you! This is such a unique way to experience HCMC. To ride through Saigon at night on the back of a scooter is amazing in itself and we would have paid to do this alone. But to then get to eat... More
