Awesome experience of a Vegan Food Bike Tour with Kevin
Feb. 2020 • Solo
With his great command of English, there's no issue communicate with him. Tour is flexi and customise to my likes. Visited lots of local style food and desserts.
Place my life in his hands,his riding skills really WOw me, so you will be in good hands. We chat on sensitive topics openly and he as a young local teen can share with us more about HCM. Will look for him again when I'm back in HCM next time.

A Fantastic Introduction to Ho Chi Minh Streets and Food!
Feb. 2020
As a single traveller on my first trip to Viet Nam with limited time in Ho Chi Minh I was keen to get out into the city and experience local food as much as possible. My tour with Tom was perfect for this. He took care to find out my expectations and let me know what we would do based on this. The tour covers a reasonable area of the city, so there is plenty of opportunity to see the city streets while riding between locations. I had not ridden on a bike in many years, however Tom drove carefully and also took care of my safety while walking on the city streets so I could concentrate on the sights without any worries. The food choices were so good! We went to places that I never would have found without Tom's guidance. Thankyou Tom! What a great introduction to Ho Chi Minh and Viet Nam!

Great night in Saigon
The best tour you can do. Although we booked at relatively short notice and it was the time of the Chinese New Year, our guides Tom and Red were able to take us to great places.
As we already had some experience with Vietnamese food, we were able to make personal wishes before the tour started.

Great friends, Great food, Great night!
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Our food tour at night was the best! First we went to the oldest coffee shop (Cheo Leo Cafe), we chatted with our tour guides and tried the coffee with condensed milk and it was a great experience. Second we went to try rice noodles at a local shop which Gordon Ramsay visited. Third we went to the Old Apartments and tried pig's brain, we didn't mind the taste because we were reminded by the taste of Balut (A Filipino Delicacy). Then since we were running out of time then brought us Banh Mi for us to take home.
Our experience with this food tour is a one of a kind, not only we enjoyed the food but also we gained new friends! 😁😁
If given the chance to come back will surely book this again!

Authentic local culinary experience
Jan. 2020
It was my first time to visit Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam on a 3 day work trip and on my last day (Saturday) I had a whole day to myself without anything to do cause my flight was still in the evening. I found and booked this Afternoon Foodie Adventure using Klook. A few minutes after, Kevin, the tour guide reached out to me to confirm pick up time and address. I also had a few questions to which he quickly responded to. The next day, I checked if it was possible for them to pick me up a little bit earlier and they were flexible to accommodate my request. Kevin picked me up at District 1 and we started our private scooter tour. Our first stop was a food stall on the side of the road where we had amazing seafood noodle soup. Next we walked around the oldest (?) apartment block in Saigon to get a feel on how and where the locals lived. After this we went to Cafe Cheo Leo to try their famous Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk. I was even invited inside the kitchen and they showed me how they made their coffee. After this, we went to the flower market and the nearby Cambodian market to try their street food. I had ginseng and seaweed flavoured juice. We also tried their Grilled Beef With Lemongrass and Salty Soup. After this we went to another place in District 4 for some snails with butter and garlic and supposedly some flan. Unfortunately the flan place was closed so we went to Thi The Che for iced desserts instead. At the end of the trip, Kevin kindly dropped me off at District 8 which was near the airport where i would wait for my flight. This tour is highly recommended!

Excellent culinary journey

Kevin, the tour guide, is very warm and considerate. He introduced the history of the scenic spot in detail, so that we can not only taste delicious food, but also know more about the local culture. It is a recommended tour guide and itinerary!
