The tour was great (as usual with Saigon Adventure), and we highly recommend doing this early during your stay in Saigon! You get to eat a lot of different dishes and drinks, explore areas of HCMC outside of District 1, and learn about Southern Vietnamese cuisine (and how it differs from Central and Northern styles). Our guide, John, also have us a crash course on Vietnamese coffee culture and gave us tips for Central Vietnam where he is from. Thanks again for that!

It was a perfect first day at HCMC. Our guides Mia and Jason didn't just show us the best street food stands in town. There were also historical insides and an insight into the everyday life of the people of Saigon. They responded to every request and made you feel welcome right away. You should start the tour hungry so that you can enjoy all the delicacies. Thanks Mia & Jason You made our day!

Win and his team are so confident, energetic and enthusiastic about their city and culture. This group of driver made us feel safe on the streets of this city. They shared history, culture and themselves with us. The food is unreal. So tasty and each dish so different. I highly recommend Win and his team.

It was our first night and a great way to orient ourselves to the city. Very enthusiastic and informative guide. Excellent communication with the guide prior to the event. So much food we couldn’t eat it all! It was a highlight!
