Full description
Meet your guide at your accommodation at 5:30 PM and set off right away on the back of a motorbike. Get ready to experience the insane Vietnam traffic! The only thing that really stands between you and some awesome vegan food is the ‘daily-dice-with-death’ traffic situation, but don't worry, your guide is an experienced driver and will calmly lead you through the traffic. Your first stop is in District 3, a hip new spot with a relaxed, historical environment all around. Here you’ll kick the tour off with a famous story about a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself for protesting the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government. After learning about the history of the people of Saigon, head up to a local vegan restaurant, a calm spot combined with nostalgic vibes, where you’ll savor "Banh Xeo" - vegan Vietnamese rice pancake served with fresh vegetables.   Coming over District 10 then going off-the-beaten-path and diving into Saigon’s deep-rooted culture. Visit a true maze of the biggest wholesale flower market and a local market inside to have an authentic local experience in hidden alleys by grilling banana crispy crackers and local hangouts that you should not miss out on. Don’t get too comfy among the cushions as we’ve got to hurry to experience the highest pagoda of the city "Viet Nam Quoc Tu" located in a quiet space with its spectacular architecture before closing! From there, cross the road to the most famous restaurant in Saigon to sample vegan food. At the peak of culinary innovation, let your senses run wild with carefully planned Vietnamese dishes featuring sustainable ingredients and sip on your old-fashioned water or vegan beer. Drive to District 5 and pass the local streets of the nightlife. Take a spin around on the journey along the banks of the Saigon River in District 4 - The perfect time to cross the bridge to Saigon’s bustling night scene. After getting a welcoming breeze from the back of the bike, we’ll finish you off with a sweet treat such as smoothies or a dish of fresh fruit.

My partner and I did the vegan street food tour and had such a wonderful experience with our lovely tour guides Phuong and Lisa! They were incredibly friendly and offered deep insight into Vietnamese culture and stories behind the food we ate. Not only did the food taste great but we also got to see a side of Ho Chi Minh City that we would not have otherwise seen. We highly recommend the tour. Thanks again Phuong and Lisa!

We had a great experience on the food tour - exploring some hidden gems and some Insights into the Vietnamese culture. We had the best hosts in Phuong and Brian and you’d be lucky to ride around Saigon with them. Thanks for the hospitality and the magic juice :-). For the vegans and the non vegans - I definitely recommend this as a must do excursion. Karan

I’m so glad I did this tour. Elle Tran was my guide. She was fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, a great driver, and her English was excellent. During the evening, we crossed paths with other Street Man Tour guides who were all very friendly (said hello, asked how my tour was going, and they joked around with each other like they really enjoy their jobs, etc.). The food was delicious. I got to try some new foods and learn a little about the city. I highly recommend this! (I almost didn’t sign up for the tour, because I wasn’t sure if it would be fun or not, but it was a great experience!)
