One of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam!! We booked online on the XO tours website. The foodie night tour is USD75 per person and it is well worth it! It is about 4 hour long, the service includes pick up and drop off at your hotel or Airbnb location and each guest gets to have their own driver (a lovely female wearing a tradional vietnamess dress). There are 5 stops, including 2 sightseeing stops and a little cultural explanation provided by a very well spoken guide and 3 food stops, including a local street food stop where Bun Bo Hue soup is served, a second stop where you experience those small bbq placed on table (beef, goat, shrimp, frog) and a third stop where lot of seafood and desserts are served (crab, clams, tradiotional egg with embry, coconut desserts) The clams in broth were the highlight for me! All you can drink pop and beer is also included. The girls take care of you like royalty, providing you with beverages, wet napkins, cooking food on the bbq, and deshelling all seafood. They are very intuitive and pay attention to your well being. There are more staff then tourists, including the drivers, the guide and the photographers. At the end of the tour, they take the time to send you personalized photos which were taken during the tour via email for no extra charge! Fantastic experience, visitng 5 districts, seeing the city by night and experiencing a very safe local and culture adventure! I would recommend to anyone visiting Saigon. It may seem expensive but it is worth every penny!!!

This food tour was exciting. We enjoyed the motobike ride with some charming girls, seeing the city like locals. The foods were well selected and delicious.

XO tours have nailed this experience. From the moment you get on the back of the bike you are thrown into the chaos of Saigon traffic and safely negotiated from place to place to experience the most amazing food. The drivers and tour guide provide entertaining knowledge of the various districts and take photos along the way. The food is plentiful and the only wired and wonderful delicacy was a duck embryo which was optional. Thank you XO for a really great evening

Four years ago my foodie Aunt and I joined the XO Foodie Tour and had an amazing time. It was an adventure from the moment we hopped on the back of the bikes. Back again in HCMC and this time my children and I are travelling together. The first thing I did was book 2 tours and we weren't disappointed - We had a hoot.
My 12 and 9-year-old kids had never been on motorbikes before, so they were excited but nervous. As soon as they had their helmets on and were on the back of the bikes the excitement took over. The tour guides were well informed and kind. They engaged with the kids beautifully and we learnt a lot about the reunification of Vietnam from the sights tour. I highly recommend XO tours and will do it all again, next time we visit!
XO Tours Rock!

Such a well organised and well managed experience. Our children (age 7 and 11) loved the experience and I was impressed by how well they were catered for ( not too spicey food options) etc. The ladies were so engaging with the children and it was certainly a highlight of their trip. We learned so much about Saigon and it was fascinating to see the vast differences between each district. Would recommend to those who want to try something a little different.
