The tour was nothing short of fabulous. Our guide, Mary, spoke perfect English, was very professional, personable, sensitive to our needs/interests and excellent in every way. She took us to a wide variety of places, each offering multiple dishes. The amount of food for us was obscenely excessive ... but we're old and don't eat that much. It was way more walking than we anticipated. We not only ate at locals' places but experienced local life and, of course, local food. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

We had a wonderful street food tour with Huy, a very friendly and qualified guide! He prepared an excellent tour with 7 different dishes. All of them were tasty. Some of them were located at hidden places which we would never had tried on our own. Additionally he told us about the culture of Vietnam and showed us the housing of the natives. In summary, it was not only a delicious food tour but also an authentic insight into the everyday life! Thanks to Huy! He´s a great guide! You should ask for him!

I traveled alone to HCMC and read online about this tour, and decided to take it. I was really surprise of the great time I had and the delicious food included in the tour. Rachel was my tour guide and she was really awesome, she felt more like a friend than a tour guide and we had a really good time. I would recommend this experience and Rachel as a tour guide. The tour includes visiting other areas not as popular in the city and it is amazing to get to know the culture. Great time!!

The young man, Mr. Bull, was extremely punctual and interestingly conveyed the different manufacturing processes of the dishes. So I got an insight into the traditions. He briefly explained the differences between the chopsticks. The dishes were consistently excellent. I had a very successful evening

It was a very nice experience for me. My Guide Tony has a lot of knowledge and his english was very good. I feeling very safe on the motorbike and he show me the best vegan food in town.
