    Stop: 4 hours
    Your local street food guide, who has a huge passion with Vietnamese street food will pick you up at your hotel by taxi then leave the tourist area behind and start your food adventure to non-tourist district, a street food paradise, while tasting ‘Banh Xeo” and “Banh Khot” – The Central, and South’s rice pancake with a lot of fresh Vietnamese vegetables. Stroll along a street known for its barbecue seafood vendors and head to a local-favorite restaurant to taste the best "bo la lot" (beef in wild betel leaves) or "banh canh Trang Bang"- special pork noodle soup or thick noodles soup with codfish pie which is the speciality from Street Food Man Vinny’s village. Your immersion in mouth-watering food continues as you head to the alleys of food in the heart of street food district and sample a tasty “bot chien", Pan - fried rice cakes with egg and spring onions which is cooked by a local chef with over 25 years experience and then quench your thirst with a sugar cane juice mixed with a little orange. Next up on your food adventure is Banh Mi - Saigon Baguette. You will experience the perfect fusion of 4 delicious flavors just after the first bite. Walk into the heart of district 3 and discover the old apartments has the name Nguyen Thien Thuat, which is home to dozens of famous Vietnamese street food that will tempt your stomach. On the corner of Seafood alley, you will sit like the locals, and get munching, crunching, sipping and slurping BBQ seafood (if you are allergic to seafood, it will be replaced by BBQ meat). Have local drinks with Saigon special beer or soft drink, mineral water and homemade Vietnamese rice wine. Cap off your Saigon street food walking tour at the night flower market by enjoying an amazing dessert which is coconut ice cream, longan ice cream or flan cake with caramel and coffee. Your local guide will take a taxi to go with you get back to your accommodation.

My Food Tour in Ho Chi Minh City
Oct. 2020
I met Vinny owner of Street Food Man through Trip Advisor during a vacation in Vietnam. It was my recollection that he had started his company a short time earlier.

It was through the Trip Advisor App that we met. I had never used the App and I wasn't sure what I was actually getting myself into.

I had been traveling through Vietnam on my own and just finished with an expensive tour in Hanoi and had a few extra days before going back to the states.

My misadventures found me in Saigon towards the end of my trip minus a few grand. I was feeling a little irritated for not having planned my trip better.

Vinny, owner of Street Food Man sensed my frustration and concern and took the time to meet me at my hotel in Saigon to introduce himself to me.

After a chat he invited me out to a restaurant for Pho which gave both of us an opportunity to meet and become friends.

A day later, I was picked up at my hotel mid-day by an assistant. His assistant was a student at a local college and he was every bit as kind and professional as Vinny was in his dealing with me.

During the walking tour we met vendors, sampled street food and saw the local sites.

My tour guide took photos which he labeled with descriptions and send me the photos after the tour.

I had been in Vietnam for about 2 1/2 weeks prior to meeting up with Vinny and his partner but it was the first time during my trip that I felt like I was with family.

The tour was great. I was introduced not only to Vietnamese Street Food but the local sights along the way.

One of the highlights of the tour was meeting a local who had worked as a translator for the US Army. We sat and chatted not just about the war and his experiences but also about life in Vietnam.

This is stuff you really can't appreciate by reading a book. It can only be experienced through travel and Street Food Man made it happen.

At the end of the day, what really stand out were meeting Vinny and his partner. I am still in touch with them through Facebook.

I will always appreciate their efforts in making me feel at home and showing me what life in Vietnam is like.

For me they will always be like family.

What a fun experience!! We tried several different types of authentic Vietnamese food and learned about some history while walking along different parts of the city I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. It was such an awesome time, and Shane was amazing, friendly and super easy to talk to!! Highly recommend checking this group out if you want an incredible experience and tasty eats.

The hilight of our holiday
We did a food walking tour with Nana when we were in HoChiMinh in February 2020. It was absolutely brilliant. But more importantly, our guide, Nana was FANTASTIC! We travelled as a family of 4, two of us were “fussy/vegetarian” and Nana made sure we had the best selection of food possible. We were all SO full and really enjoyed our walk through the streets of HoChiMinh to see the gorgeous locals and enjoy the true spirit of vietnam! We L😍VE HoChiMinh and will be back and will definitely ask for Nana to take us on another tour again! It was the hi-light of our whole holiday. We loved you Nana!!!

Great evening tour !
My husband and I were travelling with our daughter and her partner and she booked this tour for the Sunday evening. Our guide took us in a taxi to District 3 where we made a number of stops. My husband and daughter have shellfish allergies and they were able to accommodate this. It was interesting walking around and seeing how locals live. My husband and I are in our 60s so we could have done with fewer stops as it was really hot and tiring. We were advised to pace ourselves and not eat everything as there was a lot of food. My personal favourite were the clams which arrived boiling hot and the banh mi. The tour was well organised and professional.

A must do in HCMC
I traveled alone to HCMC and read online about this tour, and decided to take it. I was really surprise of the great time I had and the delicious food included in the tour. Rachel was my tour guide and she was really awesome, she felt more like a friend than a tour guide and we had a really good time. I would recommend this experience and Rachel as a tour guide. The tour includes visiting other areas not as popular in the city and it is amazing to get to know the culture. Great time!!

Great Street Food experience
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Had a excellent eating and culinary culture experience with Finn of Street Food Man. It felt like genuine Vietnamese dining as we went to small local eating places, many serving only a few typical dishes. Finn is a wonderful conversationalist. He explained a good deal about the style and origins of the dishes, as well as his perspectives in Vietnam today. Highly recommended.

Well worth it
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Dad and I had a great night with our guide Clay walking around SAIGON and discovering some amazing food as well as some areas we would never have found on our own. Clay was an excellent guide who was very considerate as Dad can’t walk too far or too fast, but we still managed to learn about the real street food of HCM.

Fun, delicious and not-to-be-missed
Feb. 2020
In February Sue led 3 of us on a street food tour of HCM. It was a highlight of a fantastic trip. Sue was friendly, knowledgeable, interesting and a delightful guide. The foods we tried were delicious and gave us a chance to enjoy 'the best' version of things we might not otherwise have known of or dared to sample. Highly recommend!

Vietnam Adventure Tours Walking Street Food Tour - Ho Chi Minh
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We are a couple in our late 60's. Pine was our guide. He was very engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about Vietnamese street food and Ho Chi Minh in general. The food he selected was very delicious and as we were away from the tourist areas, it was very authentic. We would recommend this tour and Pine as a guide.
