We had a great trip on this street food tour. Our guides were very welcoming and had great conversation in English with them about many aspects of both the food tour and life in Vietnam in general. The fun was on the back of the motor scooter and they took great care of us. The food was plentiful and we really enjoyed the atmosphere on the tour and at the restaurants. If you are looking for 'fine dining', this is not the tour. If you are looking to be brave and taste the local dishes with the locals, this is perfect for you. Ho Chi Minh City is such a crazy, anything goes kind of place, and we were able to experience it well on this tour. We would never have tried the foods that we had the opportunity to try with out being with the tour guides and trusting the food places. I highly recommend this tour. I have a slight food allergy, and they accommodated this with no issue at all also. Thanks to our two young guides, they made the night really personal for us.
This tour is a must for one and all... Our tour guides Jo and Bao where fabulous and very good riders. The food was amazing and there was so much of it.... please note not to fill up on Soup which is first stop, and when you are having the bbq ask for the frozen beer!!
Well worth the money....
We had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend this tour, I would definitely do it again next time in Saigon. Our tour guides Bao, Michelle and Phuong Trang Jenny were just brilliant, they spoke excellent English and we had some great conversations about Saigon, food, ingredients and British TV shows! We set off in heavy rain which was great fun and we stayed 'quite' dry under the ponchos provided, and all felt safe with the skilled riding of the team. Stop 1 - We had traditional pancakes rolled in salad leaves, lovely. Stop 2 - We had local noodles, yum. Stop 3 - We had BBQ food and beers which was amazing, the highlight of the tour. Stop 4 - Vietnamese ice cream desserts, what not to like!
One of the best things we did on our 2 week holiday across Asia. Jo and Thu were our scooter drivers and they made us feel extremely safe in the crazy traffic of Ho Chi Minh city. My partner is really tall and we were worried he may be too big for the bike, but there was plenty of room. We actually almost enjoyed the scooter ride itself more than the food, it was so fun. The food was great, yummy soup, pancakes and BBQ. I even tried food I had never tried before like frog and goats udder! Would do it again in a heart beat and highly recommend to everyone!
Lucy and Ann were great guides and the food was plentiful and authentic. Motorbike tours are the best tours in Vietnam because they are fun and you get to more places quickly. And most importantly you basically get a guide/driver to yourself. You can even (kind of) chat on the way to stops.
We had a great evening out. The food was great, the driving safe, and the overall ambience excellent. Our guides were knowledgeable and easy going - lots of fun. It certainly took us to places we would not have normally reached in the city. We had a small group, just two couples four four guides, which made it really easy going. A cool way to see the city and to sample the food. The highlight was certainly the leisurely cooking and eating of the bbq accompanied by frozen beer.
