The Experience

The street food scene in Saigon permeates every districts and alleyways. The city boasts so many street food outlets that, at times, it feels like a gigantic open-air restaurant.

Everyday, tens of thousands of street-side eateries offer up delicious dishes originating from all over the country. We will introduce you to a variety of “hidden” street food through five different districts in Saigon, during which you will also get a taste of what it’s like to be on a scooter learning about the history and culture of our beautiful city. This is what we called a "Yummy Adventure."


Detailed itinerary

5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

We will pick you at your accommodation and take you around the city to enjoy many different local dishes, together with the stories and tradition behind them. As part of this food hunt, we will take you around the city, driving by major attractions so you can experience the drastically different city at night.

We highly recommend the motorbike option, as it is the best way to really feel the energy of this city. Make sure to let us know your food preference or restrictions so we can adapt it for the most yummy experience, just for you!

Vegan and vegetarian options are also available. Just let us know.

We had a wonderful time in HCM travelling with Ben, Ed and Linn.We travelled to 5 different places and went and tried several dishes unique to the area. Our guides took us through step by step on how to eat the different dishes.At the end of the tour we had a pleasant surprise from our guides, which made our experience.


I went with Onetrip and took both of their tours in Saigon. It was a great way to orient yourself to the city on the first day. I loved riding the motorcycle and it truly is the best way to get around Ho Chi Min. The guide was personable and punctual. The food tour options gave a great smorgasbord of things to eat that I would never have chosen on my own. Highly recommended!


We were acquainted with OneTrip through staying at Christina's (its affiliated company) in downtown HCMC. We first went on their street food tour at night and had awesome bo la lop (grilled beef wrapped in betel nut leaf), banh canh cua (rice noodles with crab), banh xeo (the famous rice and turmeric pancakes, both the big and small kinds), and chuoi nep nuong (grilled stick rice and bananas with coconut milk and cream). Delicious food, great company, and an awesome opportunity to soak in the pulse of HCMC on motorbike.Our next tour was the student tour, where we visited local museums and pagodas. Our student volunteers were both excellent motorbike guides and sources of information on the local history and customs.Our last tour was the famous Cu Chi tunnels, where Lao and Nhiet took excellent care of us. They were the perfect "odd couple" - friendly and entertaining! OneTrip tours are never a straight line to your destination, so we had some awesome morning stops learning how rice noddles are dried outside on bamboo plats and manufactured. We had excellent iced coffee and banh cuon for breakfast as well as an outstanding homemade meal at one of the roadside stops. The Cu Chi Tunnels were an amazing sight to behold - a real example of the ingenuity that defines the country and its residents. And our guides did a stellar job of explaining the history behind the war as well as the features of the caves (and encouraging us to take the plunge and go inside - that bunker was a tight squeeze in particular). We were so impressed with our experiences in HCMC with OneTrip that we booked 3 more tours with them in Hoi An (see my other review). It's clear to my wife and me that they have put so much thought into creating unique, memorable experiences and picking such friendly and knowledgeable guides. They seem to have figured out that the savant traveler wants an experience very different from big buses and set, stale spreads of food and drink. They hire guides that want to learn just as much from the type of traveler that only this type of trip will attract.If you are looking for adventures that give you a real glimpse into HCMC and Vietnam - and that let you see it from a motorbike, the absolute best way to explore this great country - then look no further than OneTrip.
