We regularly do this food tour with friends who come to HCMC because the guides are always friendly, knowledgable and great drivers :) They're open to customize tours to everyone's preferences and always take us to great new places we would have never found on our own.

Thank you for the continued great experiences!

We were fetched by Danny and Sophia. They are both young, charming university students.
The traffic in Ho Chi Minh is unbelievable with about 10 million scooters moving close and in all directions. Only by being on the scooter can you experience this mode of transport.which in itself is an incredible experience that I will never forget. Sophia controlled the bike exceptionally well and at no time was I ever nervous.
They stopped at 4 interesting food venues which we could never find ourselves. As i don't eat meat, the food was catered to my dietary requirements and we went to a special well known vegan restaurant.
Overall this tour was one of many highlights of our trip.
My only suggestion is that if you have any chest sensitivity or pathology I would wear a mask as the pollution is dreadful.

We were worried about this adventure on two fronts. The first was food. My wife is a trained chef who went to cooking school in San Francisco. We eat really well at home. So... we were worried that the food might have been overhyped. That it might be tailored for tourists' tastes buds, and therefore maybe a bit bland or boring.
The other worry was safety. Motorbikes have tragically played nightmarish roles in our family histories. So this was kind of a big deal to get on motorbikes with two people we had never met before in a city that is jammed to the gills with motorbikes of every shape and size.
So how was it? FANTASTIC!
Our amazing and delightful guides, Fat and Lucy, were super plugged into the food scene and totally understood what we were looking for. They took us to places we would NEVER have found on our own. They also helped us order the best things offered at each place. So tasty. Totally authentically local.
And we felt completely safe the entire time. As an American, you can't believe how fluid and close all the motorbike traffic is. And you are right in the middle of it. I could have easily reached out and petted a dog that was riding on the back of another motorbike. However, there was never a feeling that what we were doing was dangerous. It felt as safe as a kiddie ride at Disneyland. But totally fun.
Do it. You won't regret it. May be the best part of your visit to Vietnam.

A last-minute decision to book this tour turned out to be a highlight of our week in Vietnam. Our guides, Alex and Philip, were excellent ambassadors for their beautiful city and safely delivered us to a number of street food venues we would have otherwise never discovered. Zipping through the city at night on the back of a motorbike, we felt much safer than we thought we would. The views, food and company were all first rate.
