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 and create unforgettable memories of Saigon. Try the best local foods and enjoy the amazing ride on the back of a scooter. Hop on the scooter and head into the crowded roundabout and exciting Saigon traffic on the back of your scooter. First, you'll ride to Chinatown and visit an evening local market. 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, the Nguyen Thien Thuat area is next on the itinerary. This is 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 10 tastings includes:

• Banh Xeo: Vietnamese savory crispy pancake with herbs and sauce. Sit back and relax while watching your sizzling cake being done in front of your eyes. • Bo La Lot: Vietnamese grilled beef wrapped in betel leaves with a distinctive fragrance and smoky, juicy, tender meat. Enjoy it with a pineapple anchovy dipping sauce for the ultimate street snack. • Bun Bò Hue: Beef noodle soup. • Chuoi Nuong: Grilled Banana with coconut milk sauce. A mix of sweet and salty. • Crispy Banana Cracker • Bánh Mì: Traditional baguette with sausage, butter, and meat. • Saigon Pizza: A great mix of melted butter, cheese, egg, and Vietnamese sausage. • Cold Sugar Cane Juice with Kumquat • Jasmine Tea: A traditional drink to local Vietnamese restaurants. • Bánh Flan: Flan cake for dessert.

My wife and I just finished this tour and cannot believe how amazing it was. Between the fantastic guides and the delicious foods we are considering doing another tour again before we leave town in a few days. 5 stars all around. Thank you so much for an amazing experience we will remember forever.

Logan and Jun speak good to very good English, are very accommodating and made the tour extremely well run and interesting. The dishes were all delicious and the insights into the way of life of the locals were very informative. Both guides drive very well, so you feel safe. Disinfectants were always offered, so there was nothing to fear. We were given rain ponchos as it rained almost continuously. Nevertheless, we had great fun and would definitely recommend this tour.

Peter was the lead guide of the group and he demonstrated excellent knowledge in sharing the history of Saigon and HCMC. It was great to learn about the stories of the city and experience it first hand even though the focus was on street food. Definitely would say it’s a good trip for solo travellers to consider if you want to make new local and foreign friends and eat some local food safely.
