Free local night street food tour
"We are a group of 8 friends who took up this tour and we had a blast. The guides were super friendly and accommodating. We had a lot of fun hopping from one sheet food to the next, tasting all the steet food goodies that were so cheap and tasty. If we were to go around ourselves, we would never had the opportunity to experience this. Definitely recommended!"
Excellent Night Food Tour
"Had a really great experience with super friendly and knowledgeable student tour guide, Ngan. Tried several street food, such as the very delicious Vietnam pizza, soup noodles and local snacks. Ngan even brought us to her personal favourite coconut smoothie shop which is beyond the Saigon hotpot tour route. Throughout the tour we also had chances to go near to the real life of the people and had a short walk around a typical local apartment. Unlike many free tour in other cities which ask for tips in the end of the tour, Saigon hotpot is really a non-profit organisation and totally FREE (of course, u got to pay for your own food and transport). Absolutely a wonderful experience. Highly recommended."
"We had tour with two excellent young people, Nguyen and Ngoc, two great people who shared traditional street food with us, very informative and a pleasure to be with. If you want to try traditional Vietnamese street food this is a must, the cost was that we paid for the transport and food for the guides, very good prices away from the tourist spots where locals shop and eat."
Saigon Night Food tour
We went on a Night Food Tour with Minh Anh and Ha who were both wonderful; easy to talk to, very knowledgable about the culture and very informative and hospitable. The teenagers thoroughly enjoyed chatting and sharing their similar interests. The foods were delicious and their company made the evening spectacular! The Saigon Hotpot Night Food Tour is our best experience in Vietnam and we cherish the 2 young ladies' patience, enthusiasm and hospitality... As a family we are always appreciative of a hands-on local learning experience! Thank you.... Thank you.. Thank you for a wonderful Vietnamese evening! From the Prins family
