Full description
After pickup from your hotel, enjoy a thrilling ride on the back of a scooter. Your first stop will be at a low-key eatery in district 3, where locals sit on small plastic chairs and eat cheap street food. Here you will try a Vietnamese pancake.  Next, your driver will take you to Nguyen Thien Thuat Street, Saigon's heaven for foodies. Street food sold here is varied, since people living in the area come from all over Vietnam and have different tastes. Walk around the area and hear about its history.  You'll then stop at the large flower market located in district 5, where flowers from every part of Vietnam are sold. Explore the colors and smells of the market, before stopping to try banana crispy crackers in a hidden alleyway.  The next stop for food is in district 10. Here you will learn how to make steamed rice rolls from scratch. Then hop back on the scooter to another area of the city to enjoy the most popular street food in Vietnam, Banh My.  Next, sit on plastic chairs among many locals at a local eatery and have BBQ meat or seafood. The last stop will be at a dessert place, where you will try flan cakes. You will then be dropped back to your hotel.

Really great tour, I got to see some super parts of the city that I almost certainly wouldn't have gone without a guide and the food everywhere was very good and came with a story.

Belle was an incredible tour guide. Her information and knowledge of the food scene and culture of Ho Chi Minh was very impressive. She was sweet, happy, kind and fun. Highly recommend
