The Foodie

Sample the most amazing dishes that Vietnam has to offer! Taste your way through cuisine from North Vietnam, Hue and The South. The “Foodie” is the most acclaimed food tour in all of Vietnam, and is designed to introduce you to the dishes and desserts that most food blogs and other tours don’t really touch upon!

We will take you to the most popular street stalls and hidden alleyways in the city and show you where the locals really love to eat! So save your appetite, delight your palate and let us fill your tummy with delicious and authentic Vietnamese food!

Our Foodie tour focuses on street food dishes that most people outside of Vietnam have never had a chance to experience. Unlike most other Vietnam food tours, we won’t serve you Pho, Spring Rolls, Vietnamese Pancakes, or Banh Mi Sandwiches. We also won’t make you eat dog meat, bugs, organs, raw food or anything too weird.

The Foodie Tour is only available in the evenings when most of the street vendors open for business. All food & drinks are included in the price! You get at least 8 entrees (including lots of seafood), dessert and drinks (beer, soft drinks, water & tea) on this tour. The portions are generous, and we’ll keep on ordering food as long as you keep eating!

The Foodie is not just a gastronomic tour, but a great way to see parts of the city that the majority of tourists don’t get to see. Most visitors to Ho Chi Minh City are stuck in district 1; on this tour we’ll take you to 5 other popular districts and show you how real Vietnamese people live, work and eat! The Foodie combines our Saigon By Night tour with stops for amazing food and lasts about 4.5 hours. We will give you plenty of time in between each stop in order for you to rest your stomach.

By far our most popular tour, “The Foodie” is great fun and the perfect way to discover some of the lesser known dishes that the locals love to eat. But don’t take our word for it, read a review of our Foodie tour by New York Chef, Mario Tolentino HERE, and another great write-up HERE by beautiful Aussie expat Dani Moger, who despite having lived in Saigon for 18 months, said she was bowled over by the food and parts of the city that she never even knew existed!

Please note that this tour is offered on a join in basis, so there may be other guests joining you on the tour. Our maximum group size on the Foodie tour is 16 people. For guests that do not want to go in a group, we also offer a private tour option for an extra charge.
