Sample a street food called banh bo banh tieu (a bit like a savory doughnut) and then learn how Cantonese, Teochew, and Hakka Chinese migrated to Ho Chi Minh City. After a classic Vietnamese coffee served local style, discover that Chinese influence as you dine on local dim sum, spring rolls and barbecued beef meatballs. No Ho Chi Minh City food tour would be complete without an ice-cold beer, so your tour will end at a beer stall, beer in hand. Your guide will be glad to provide tips for exploring further or just help you get a taxi back to your accommodation.

Did this tour as a side trip on my fantastic Intrepid Vietnam Tour
A great evening with lovely people and good choice of street food to try. Plenty of it to fill you up.
Thuong Vu was a friendly and knowledgeable local guide.
Definitely to be recommended.
Tour finished around 8.00pm so stopped in the very lively Bar Street/Bui Vien on walk back to hotel.

Today I had a wonderful street food tour with Bichle. It was supposed to be a small group tour but due to tourism being down because of coronavirus fears it ended up just being me. To be honest I had purposefully booked this tour because I did not want a private tour (as most of them seemed to be) so when I found out it was going to just be me I was a little disappointed BUT it ended up being wonderful.

Bichle was great company and we talked all about the food, Vietnam in general, and she answered all my questions about life here. She was great company.

The food was really good and plentiful. Bichle offered if I wanted more we could get more, but I was way too full after Beef Stew Pho, Peking Duck, Vietnamese Donut, Betel Wrapped Beef, coffee and a beer. The food was different than advertised, but perfect for me. It was nice to try places I likely wouldnt have gone to on my own. All in all a great experience.

Excellent early evening tour on Feb 23rd with Dean. Street food, small local eateries and a beer to wash it all down at the end. Enough walking between stops to prepare you for the next course and a variety of foods which you might miss if you didnt venture a bit off the tourist track. Dean did a great job explaining it all as we went along. Tour ends by 8 if you have further plans for the evening, but these shouldnt include food as you finish the tour full up. Excellent value as well.

I only had a few days in Ho Chi Minh and wanted to try as many different types of food as possible and this street food tour certainly fit the bill as I tried dishes from multiple different locations, including the best duck I've ever eaten. I highly recommend this tour if you want to try a variety of Vietnamese street food that would be hard to find yourself in a restaurant

Last night in Ho Chi Minh city we decided to go on a food walking tour for dinner. What an amazing experience to sit literally on the street tasting the local foods with the locals. Came away feeling very full and thankful for the experience. Our guide was great and clearly has a good relationship with all the vendors.

Our tour guide TAN was an absolute gem. My wife and I were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour the particular night we went. This meant not only did we get to learn about and eat many of the local specialties we also got a great insight into the history of the city and to our guides life. We spoke about everything from the war to him learning to swim to pass university.
For the food side of it TAN has a great relationship with all the vendors/restaurants, so you get a genuine feel for how you should eat and enjoy the food like a local. He is was very accomodating to any questions about the food we had and anything we may not have liked to eat or were sceptical about. Also TAN was so friendly and accommodating he made it seem as though we were just hanging out with a friend all night. So many laughs.
Highly recommend.

Absolutely sensational way to visit restaurants and stalls that you would normally not see. Plus a great guide to tell you about the neighborhoods and the city. Duy (D) was fantastic, knowledgeable and able to provide a history and personal touch that was very enlightening. A great way to experience Ho Chi Minh food! All the meals were delicious. Highly recommend.
