Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in selected areas of Ho Chi Minh City, and then head by taxi to a local district which is known as a street food paradise to taste authentic banh xeo and banh khot (rice pancakes) away from the tourist crowds.

Stroll along a street known for its barbecue seafood vendors and head to a local-favorite restaurant to taste the best bo la lot" (beef in wild betel leaves). Sample a tasty Bot Chien, pan-fried rice cakes with egg and spring onions which is cooked by a local chef with over 25 years experience, and then quench your thirst with a sugar cane juice mixed with a little orange. Continue your food adventure with an authentic banh mi (sandwich) and experience the perfect fusion of 4 delicious flavors with one bite!

Walk into the old apartments of Nguyen Thien Thuat, where you can join the locals and try the best barbecue seafood or meat with some local beer and homemade Vietnamese rice wine.

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.

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!!

Finn, the English name for my tour was terrific. He was fun, informative and professional beyond his years- about age 24. As a senior I enjoyed connecting with him. Oh, and the food: varied, authentic, delicious and plentiful. Close to 4 hours including pickup and drop off, great food, and the chance to learn about a country from a future important person. What else would you want in a food tour?
