I don't really bother with reviews normally but had such a great time on this tour I felt I had to break the habit.
It was only myself and Cuong (guide) on the tour but it felt more like visiting a friend in a foreign city, who wants to fatten you up, than a corporate tour guide.
We walked around the local district, I didn't see another westerner all night, and Cuong explained what all the foods were on the side of the street and bought them for me to try, he also explained a bit about the culture of the people we were among.
I got to try a ridiculous amount of food, and feel the fullest I have since being back in England.
Overall I really enjoyed the tour, learnt a lot and had a great evening; if you have an evening free and are interested in local food/ culture, I'd recommend going on this tour, just make sure you start with an empty stomach!

Also, the duck eggs with a baby duck inside aren't nearly as bad as they sound, almost like a normal boiled egg.

The street food tour with Viet was awesome. We learnt so much about the city, the food and the culture of the local people.
With this tour it felt like we were seeing the real Ho Chi Minh City. Great service and a great price. Started at a market and then walked our way around the alleyways eating amazing food. Doing this has really set us up well for the rest of Vietnam and gives confidence when out and about in ordering street food.

Everything in here was wonderful. You will eat a ridiculous amount of food and have so much fun seeing a part of Saigon. The food is amazing

This tour is a must do! I wish we had done it prior to our last night in Vietnam, as we would have eaten a lot more street food after learning what we did during this tour. Cao is great! He is very sweet and welcoming, and shares a lot of general knowledge about Ho Chi Minh City, along with the best food the streets have to offer! This tour was very personal, only myself and partner, and far cheaper than booking elsewhere! I also like the idea of helping a true local, rather than a large tour company. The coconut and rice flour buns...my favorite, you have to try!!!

Everything about this food tour was amazing. Our tour guide Viet was so nice and informative. You will eat a ridiculous amount of food and have so much fun seeing a part of Saigon that most tourist don't get to see.
