Phi and Steve were absolute legends, they took us to some epic food places and were super easy to talk to. They also gave amazing recommendations of things to do and were super open about their culture. We had so much fun. Definitely recommend doing this as soon as you get to Ho Chi Minh.

Jus from Vietnam Street Foods Tour was fantastic. Took me to some great locations and had lots of information about each. The food stalls were amazing and Jus was able to order and select foods I would like the most. I greatly enjoyed the experience and would recommend anyone wanting to see the real side of Saigon.

We had such an awesome time on our tour with Ted and Chung! They were both really enthusiastic and knowledgable about more than just then the food - they gave us great recommendations for things to do and other places to eat during our time here. Both guides made us feel safe and comfortable on the motorbikes throughout the tour, despite all the heavy traffic. We cannot recommend this tour enough and would do it all over again!
