Deep dive into local life

We took taxis and drove to a very local, non-touristic area of Ho Chi Minh. There we dived into the local life of Vietnamese people. The guides were wonderful, spoke excellent English and shared knowledge of their country's history, culture and their lives with us for the hours of the tour. The food was amazing, fresh, delicious and not what you would eat in a stereotypical restaurant. If you want to experience real life and street food in Ho Chi Minh, take this tour!
5 Star from start to finish!

I have just finished the private walking food tour with Lucie and had a wonderful time! I was a bit anxious with it just being me and one person but within 5 minutes, Lucie made me feel relaxed and we got along so well. The whole tour was such a great experience! We took a taxi to right in the heart of proper Vietnamese culture (basically I was the only tourist to be seen). We stopped at 5 places and by the end I was stuffed but extremely satisfied. I learned a lot about the foods but also they were extremely tasty! Lucie made the whole night extra special with her charm and knowledge

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed experiencing and visiting the special food places only the locals know about. We learnt so much about the everyday lifestyle of the local Vietnamese people and of course ate amazing food. Go with empty belly’s and an open mind and I am sure you will love the tour as much as we did. Thank you Henry

As described, it was very special not only for diverse foods, but also places without tourists. It might not be easy to find those local restaurants and foods by ourselves. And, our friendly tour guides were very professional and nice to introduce new foods and make the entire tour happy. There was no problem at all in English conversation with two tour guide gentlemen.


Our tour guide will arrive at your hotel to pick you up at 5:00 – 6:00 PM depending on your location. We will take a taxi to our walking area, while our tour guide makes some introduction about Vietnamese food and culture.

Let’s start our journey on the Local Night Food Tour with the secret local food of Lang Son – a mountainous area in the north of Vietnam. Though its name is strange, the taste will make you fall in love from the first bite.

While trying the mountainous food of Vietnam in a local family restaurant, we will ask the locals to give you a try to do a mini cooking class, in which you will cook the food you are eating.

Please note that as we are visiting locals, they may not be able to operate this some days due to their health conditions, not like in a tourist restaurant where they can operate activities all day.

Saying goodbye to the mountainous food restaurant with originates from the North, we will take a walk through the local small streets before reaching another food from the South: a grilled one in herbs wrapped with delicious Vietnamese rice papers.

For the next part of the tour, we will visit a local Vietnamese Pancake (or Banh xeo) restaurant that is hidden in a corner of the area. This place offers one of the best Banh xeo in the city, yet only known by locals.

A Saigon local journey does not mean “local” without visiting a wet market. Here you can see lively things that you may have never seen before in your supermarket: jumping frogs, heaven of tropical fruits,…

Visit a local shop in the wet market and enjoy the most delicious local fruits.

Eat like a local! That is what makes a great local walking food tour! We will visit a small place to try a dessert that has become a wonderful memory for all Vietnamese children, whenever they are out of school.

Besides those famous Pho, Banh mi, or Vietnamese pancakes, do you know the youth in Vietnam usually have their trending food? This type of food is changed from time to time, which makes it unknown to tourists. In this tour, we will pick one of them for you to try!

After the best local experience, we will take you with a full belly back to your hotel by taxi.

Frequently asked questions

We won’t tell you. As it is a local exploration, the best thing we should do is to unveil secrets one by one. Don’t worry, we guarantee the food won’t be so strange that you will scream when you see it. And they won’t be so familiar that you can easily find them on your own.

Don’t worry, we are local experts, and our tours are famous for their customization. If you have any problems, we are happy to help and change the food/ itinerary to suit you.

We will prepare raincoats for you in case it rains. As we used to arrange many walking food tours in the rain, our guests still loved every single moment of it. In case you are sensitive to the rain, we can move the tour to another day.

Of course, you can. As local experts, we do have itineraries for car and motorbike food tours as well. However, please note that a car tour may come with an extra charge as it increases a lot of costs.
