Get off the tourist trail and dive into the real Ho Chi Minh City, home of the world's best street food. All Saigon Street Eats groups are small because we want you to feel like you're hanging out with friends. We offer three food-focused tours - the Pho Trail, the Seafood Trail and Street Food 101 (an introduction to street food). We are the only tour outfit in town offering Pasteur Street craft beer on our evening tours. Bear in mind our tours aren't for everyone. They are designed people like us -- people who don't usually do tours, people who want to experience local life and people who love to explore a culture through its food by eating where the locals eat.

We went on the morning tour with Vu and his associate. Started off with breakfast at the local pho shop. Best pho we have had all trip. After that had a walk through the local markets and tasted a lot of the local food and fruits. Vu is very interesting and gave us a great insight into Vietnam and its... More

What an amazing tour! Vu and his assistant (Huang) took us all over Ho Chi Minh and we truly got to experience the city. It wasn’t JUST a food tour, it was a very informative tour of the city as well. Vu and Huang did such an amazing job stopping at land marks and picturesque places so we could take... More

Vu took my bf and I on the seafood trail tour and it was just the 2 of us with Vu and one of his trainee. He's a very informative and knowledgeable guide who shares everything he knows about Vietnam and all the local delicacies with you. The places we went were the local hang out places and food was...

We had a great tour visiting off the beaten track places. The food was unfailingly good and our guides great company. There were two guides for two of us. Lots of insightful commentary and everything tailored to our needs (including coming home early as my wife was unwell - nothing to do with the food here) We have previously done... More

My husband and I have just moved to Vietnam and we wanted to learn a little about the street food scene. We decided to sign up for the Street Food 101 Tour offered by Saigon Street Eats and we are so happy we did. We opted for the back of the scooter experience and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Our drivers... More

We had an amazing time with our Vu. The way Vu runs the tour feels a lot more like hanging out with a friend than anything else. He took us to places we'd never have found on our own. Food was fantastic. It was one of the best meals I had in Vietnam. I highly recommend this tour to anyone... More

We booked this tour very late and thank god they accepted us. We were picked up from our hotel by scooters and the feeling of being on one of those weaving thru HCMC traffic was amazing. We were then taken to a local haunt in D3 where all the locals eat. Vu our tour guide took us around to 4... More

Our guide was friendly, full of knowledge and obviously loved what he does and his city. We sampled the famous Beef Soup (Pho)... More
