Queenie was a wonderful host - knowledgeable and full of insights about the food and also Saigon culture. Our group had a fantastic time, ate delicious street food and learnt a lot. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

Saigon street food tour with Thuong Vu

Excellent tour. Guide was there to greet us when we arrived at meeting point 10 minutes early. Was introduced to typical Vietnamese food and drink. We arrived by cruise ship, not able to eat again that night! Ms. Vu was most helpful, arranged taxi for our return to ship after tour.

The tour was well planned but the guide was totally useless. He he took us to the five eating places and 2 drinking places as noted. But he was in a mighty hurry to finish the tour off and did not give any information about the food.

Bic was an excellent walking street food tour guide. We experienced great food, the crazy traffic, the wonderful city of Ho Chi Minh, and great company on this tour. Bic was fun, patient, very knowledgeable, energetic, and lovely to be around. It rained on us for about 30 mins and I thought that was going to ruin the tour; however, Bic did not allow the rain to stop us experiencing the greatness of Ho Chi Minh City. Thank you very much Bic.

We had the good fortune to have Bic as our guide, she was friendly, informative and really looked after is, in a word delightful. There was a good variety of tasty food (you won’t go hungry), I’m now addicted to the iced coffee and the Saigon Beer’s pretty good too. All in all a great night

Not Great.

Had high hopes for this tour based on other reviews. Our guide told our small group of three to call him “Fox”, but I don’t know what his real name was. Yes, we ate food. But Fox gave us virtually no explanation, no context, and not much of anything. He’d walk ahead of us and frankly I think he would have just kept walking if we had not followed. Also, he actually ate everything on the tour. Usually the guides don’t eat; I think he did the tour just to have dinner.

Let me start by saying that my husband and I LOVE food tours. The Ho Chi Minh City Street Food Tour was no exception. Our tour guide, Tan, led us into food stalls and restaurants that were clearly reserved for locals. We enjoyed duck, Vietnamese coffee, taro and eggs, BBQ, Saigon Beer and more over the course of this 2.5-hour tour. Yum! If you love food as much as we do, take this tour and make your stomach happy.

Excellent street food tour and an excellent tour guide in Tan! Tan was very knowledgeable and shared with us a lot of history lessons about Ho Chi Minh vs Saigon as well as local knowledge such as places to eat, the lifestyle of the people, and the nuances of everyday local life. The food you'll have on this tour won't be the generic ones such as pho or banh mi. As a result of that, we were truly impressed by the variation of the food as it was a good change of pace from several prior days of pho and banh mi. Please find below some notes: Do be informed that it is a walking tour with a considerable amount of walking. We were fine with it and found it to be very helpful to us as it lessened the guilt from eating too much. Do be informed that most of these street food vendors aren't in spotless clean dining areas but in the streets beside the road literally on the pavement where it may be perceived to be unhygienic and dirty. If you may have a problem with that then this is definitely not for you. We were fine with it as it gave us insight into the locals' way of life. Do be prepared to be super full from eating a wide variety of food. Do be prepared to gain valuable knowledge about Vietnam in many aspects. Do be prepared to learn how to drink your coffee the Vietnamese way as opposed to the Starbucks way. The night ended on a high note and our tour guide Tan was also kind enough to let us know to only use VinaSun taxis to find our way back to the hotel. Thanks a lot to Tan for making the whole experience a positive one for us.

Awesome! Awesome Tour! Good Food, Great Tour Guide, Great Group of People. It rained at the beginning, but the tour guide offered ponchos, which was great. Keep close to the tour guide, with a lot of motorbikes and traffic, you don't want to get run over. Highly Recommend!
