Full description

Embark on a motorbike trip around 5 of Ho Chi Minh's colorful districts and hidden streets. Immerse yourself in Saigon's culture, blend into local nightlife, and eat mouthwatering local dishes.

You'll ride on a pillion behind the drivers to enjoy the unique atmosphere with your guide and other travelers and create unforgettable memories of Saigon. Try the best local foods and enjoy the amazing ride on the back of a scooter. First, hop on the scooter and head into the crowded roundabout and exciting Saigon traffic on the back of your scooter.  Next head to the Ho Thi Ky wholesale flower market. Take a walk in the market and sit down to learn how to make a crispy banana cracker. Continue to ride through the alleys, passing commercial streets and food vendors.

After taking in some unbeatable views from your scooter, stop at a local food place for pho (beef noodle soup) and Banh My, Vietnam's most famous street food. After your meal, your experienced driver will take you to one of the most famous street food areas in Saigon with great diversity in both cuisine and culture. Last but not least, discover the best place for dessert at a local favorite spot in district 4. Sit at a small table and chat with your tour guide. Get to know more about the local life and the ingredients of Vietnamese cuisine.

The menu for the 11 tastings includes:

• Grilled Oyster with Black Pepper Sauce and Grilled Oyster with Quail Eggs • Bun Bò Hue: A unique Beef Noodle Soup (not pho that you can find everywhere) • Fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce • Mini Rice Pancake with Shrimp. Enjoy them wrapped in fresh herbs and salad • Chuoi Nuong: Grilled Banana with Coconut Milk Sauce. A mix of sweet and salty • Crispy Banana Cracker (the best snack from local recommendations) • Bánh Mì: Traditional Baguette with Sausage, Butter, and Meat (No.1 street food in Vietnam) • Banh Trang Nuong: A great mix of Melted Butter, Cheese, Egg, and Vietnamese Sausage • Cold Sugar Cane Juice with Kumquat • Jasmine Tea: A traditional drink in local Vietnamese restaurants • Dessert with Bánh Flan: Flan Cake or Sweet Soup at a popular place for locals

Amazing! The group of student drove us around the city and food places. It was a great experience. The food was delicious and our guides - Mai, Trang, Trang, Ngan and Dao were very kind, funny and talkative. Spending this one evening with them was fun!

Brian was an amazing tour guide, knew a lot about the origins of food and the historic places, it almost felt like you're transported into the food documentaries that we're shown on TV The guys who drove us on the bikes had incredible knowledge on the city and the food as well

The street food tour was amazing. We went to many different places and got to try so many different things which all tasted great. Our guides were super nice, and knowledgeable, and told and showed us many interesting things about Saigon. A great experience, would definitely recommend it to everyone!
