My wife and I enjoyed spending an evening with this delightful couple getting to know Ho Chi Minh City a bit better and eatings all sorts of interesting vegan foods. Between each food stamp there was a 5 to 10 minute walk that was interesting and filled with delightful stories. At the end of the night it felt both sacred and special as we said goodbye to each other.

Excellent experience. Spring and Hieu showed my husband and I a unique and special evening around Saigon. We tried many dishes and enjoyed learning about Vietnamese life and history as well as their personal backgrounds. We also got to practice speaking some helpful Vietnamese words. The conversation flowed easily and enjoyably and the dishes were all very tasty. It was also fun to walk between the different districts so we could work up an appetite between the myriad of dishes we tried. Thank you for a special evening!

What a great tour! The food was delicious and our guide, Charlie, took us to the REAL Ho Chi Minh city. Away from the tourists and into the streets for great streetfood. I highly recommend this tour.

Diese Foodtour zu besuchen war die Idee meiner Freundin, da es in S.E. Asia schwer ist wirklich gut Vegan zu essen. Normalerweise halte ich nicht viel von gebuchten Touren, doch wieder einmal wurden wir sehr positiv überrascht. Spring und Hieu hießen und herzlichst willkommen und wir verstanden uns sofort sehr gut. Das Essen war natürlich auch sehr gut doch am Ende war es eher nebensächlich und wir unterhielten uns mehr über unser Land und unsere Lebensweisen. Das war für mich einmalig! 5/5 Sternen.

Thu ( a friend of the tour guides) sat as our tour guide and what a lovely fill in. She took us on a beautiful tour down the alleys of HCM. My friend is a meat eater and Thu provided us with tips to satisfy her needs as well. Thanks Thu for a lovely experience.

It was such a great experience! Our guide Thu did a really good job in showing us around and answering all our questions. She was super nice and funny! The food we tried was amazing. I especially liked that we walked through areas where we would not have passed on our own. thank you for this outstanding experience!
