Fantastic tour around the city tasting alot of great dishes, both sweet & savory. Very knowledgable and attentive main guide, took good care of us and spoke excellent english. Social group of both tourists and drivers. Never thought I would dare to hop on the back of a motorbike, but it was really safe and actually quite fun! Highly recommended!

This tour was not only about food but also about the history of Vietnam. The food was amazing and you got so much, I actually couldn't finish the last tasting which was bahn mi and it was the best I've ever tasted. My driver sha vang was funny and interacted well with me. We had a laugh while weaving in and out of traffic on his scooter.

Great experience right from the start to the finish. The food was great. The stuff were so helpful. Full marks from me.
