“Great introduction to Saigon!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

If you are are first timer to Saigon or just want to get amongst it all, this is the best way to experience Saigon. After 15 mins you will be cruising on the back of the scooter amongst the 7 million other scooters around Saigon. It is organised chaos and from my experience safe, and an experience in its self.
The guides are great, the food along the way is perfect.
( I did the afternoon tour).

“So much food, so much fun!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We went on the foodie tour at night with Ti and Thanh who were amazing guides and easy to get along with. We felt completely safe on the back of their bikes and loved experiencing the busy streets of Saigon. I would definitely recommend fasting the entire day as I felt full after the first stop! The food was all delicious but the sour sob smoothie was the best and we haven't been able to find one again!

“Highlight of my Vietnam Holiday”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I went on one of the afternoon street food tours recently whilst on holidays in Vietnam with two family members. The tour was amazing, from the riding on the back of a scooter through the crazy traffic of Saigon, to the excellent food and great company from the guides. One of my family members had never riden on a scooter before and was anxious before hand but was quickly reassured by our guides. We visited five different street food stalls/local restaurants, each having different and excellent food - the crab/noodle soup being one of many highlights. Our guides ate with us at each stop making it feel like an afternoon with friends whilst gaining an insight into everyday life in Vietnam. Highly recommend this company for exploring Saigon!

“Best food and tour by night!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We had a fabulous time on our night time street food/city tour. The food was some of the best we have eaten in Vietnam (to die for!) and the guides/moto drivers were lovely people and good drivers. It was great to meet Chad and Thuy the owners who were both lovely and very informative and passionate about the city and the food. The tour stops at numerous street vendors and we we're especially lucky to be touring the city on moto's before Tet with all the beautiful street lights. We highly recommend this tour and hope to do another on our next trip to Vietnam. Thanks guys! Kelly and Bryan Goddard
