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 went on the student tour and it was wonderful having Khang and Yennie as our student volunteers. It was my first time on a motorcycle and first thing Yennie asked me was, is this your first time? Yes, it was and seeing the crazy traffic didn't exactly help. But Yennie said I could trust her and trust her I did. I fell in love with the motorcycle. Both Yennie and Khang was extremely knowledgable and I could not ask for a more better guide. Aside from learning, it is a great way to meet new friends and learn more about their culture. We also went on the food tour and the experience was out of this world. Because there was another couple who booked the tour at the same time, we went in a group of four. I can't recall names, but Daniel and Duong (?) was absolutely wonderful and entertaining, extremely funny guys. There was never a dull moment, they always made us laugh and the food was wonderful. A great way to travel and see the city. We also went on the cu chi tunnel tour and had Beer and Khang again as our tour guides. They were both SO entertaining and extremely knowledgable. The tour was from 7-430 but you can stop wherever and whenever you wished to take photos. Beware of those who attract mosquitos...you might want to consider wearing long pants for this tour. Beer was well prepared and had hand sanitizer, tissue, raincoat AND bug spray, but those mosquitos still got a few munches in. All in all, Onetrip gave amazing service, amazing motorcycle driving skills and the BEST people you would ever want to tour you around. Highly, highly recommend, you will definitely not be disappointed.

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Vietnam where our local Air B&B host set us up on an evening motorbike food tour of HCMC. Our hosts, Ryan and Khoi, were such nice guys and very knowledgeable of the local area. They took us to taste delicious food we have never tried before, and every detail was carefully organized as we interacted and learned more about the culture and experienced some of the best cuisine in HCMC (make sure you come really hungry). I was nervous about the motorbike, but it really was a safe and enjoyable ride since our tour guides were used to the traffic. Please do yourself a favor and book this fun, four-hour HCMC food tour and you will not regret it! OneTrip does the best tour in town!

I organised the Evening Food Tour for myself and my parents on our visit to Saigon through Onetrip at the very last minute and it turned out to be one of the most memorable parts of our entire trip.

The Onetrip team was very responsive and we were confirmed for the tour and a couple of hours later our 3 guides (Doan, Daniel and Bi) met us in the lobby of our hotel.

Our first impressions of our guides was great - they were really friendly and have a great sense of humour. You can tell they genuinely love what they do. After our introduction we were on the back of the bikes and zipping through the craziness that is traffic in Saigon. Seriously, this alone is an exhilarating experience and a great way to see the city. Whilst we were zipping around, the guides pointed out a number of different landmarks and interesting facts to us.

As for the food: Wow. Firstly, don't eat anything before you go on this tour. You'll need the room. We were taken to a number of different places and the best thing is everything we had was completely unique, delicious and food we'd never tried before. The guides provided context for everything we ate: Where the food came from, how it is eaten, its origin, etc.

The guides were also excellent riders and we always felt very safe. Not only this, but they carry plenty of wet wipes, hand sanitiser and mosquito repellant to keep everyone safe during the tour.

The only regret that I have is that I didn't book any other tours through Onetrip due to time restrictions, however next time I visit Saigon I won't hesitate to book through them again.
