A must do whilst in Ho Chi Minh City

, Mar 2020
This is a must do whilst in Ho Chi Minh city. Danny and Back were our guides for the night and took us to places we normally wouldn’t have gone. We felt so safe on the back of their bikes (amongst the thousands of others) and the different foods we tried were amazing. Thanks guys for a really fun night. We had an amazing time.

Loved Street Food and Scooter Experience
RobHAndV2
, Mar 2020
My daughter and I loved this tour. Ngan and Bach were outstanding guides. Being older, I was hesitant to ride a scooter in the chaotic ballet that is HCMC traffic. Ngan and Bach were safe drivers and made the tour a lot of fun. The food stalls visited were clean and very tasty. Every choice our guides made was top notch. It was fun to speak with them about the changes in Vietnam in the short time they have been in University and future prospects for them and their country. Our favorite food was the Vietnamese pancake - the first stop of the tour.

Dining adventure - from the back of a bike!
AndrewJeffrey8711
, Sep 2019
My guide, Khang Nguyễn Thanh, took me to five different venues. All were very different from each other, offering a wide range of tastes and influences. It was great fun to eat with the locals, and get an idea of how Vietnamese people live. Khang provided cultural context to where we were visiting, and his confident driving skills and good humour made for a great solo night for me. Getting driven around in the Saigon traffic was an experience I won't soon forget! Thank you Khang. ("Call me K")

My husband and I both enjoyed this experience, felt safe, had two lovely students who were happy to ask and answer questions. Food was fantastic and I got to cook on an open flame. Plus saw some apartments that locals live in, plus part of the markets.

This was the best experience during our short visit to Ho Chi Minh City. Our student guides, Callie, Kwen and Raymond, were all very friendly, smart and nice, and showed great enthusiasm for spending some time with us and showing us around some awesome local spots that we wouldnt have known to visit otherwise! We got to sample some awesomely authentic local street food, and got to spend a few hours with the awesome local students...5/5 great experience!
