What you will do

Start your day slurping a bowl of Vietnam's unofficial national dish, pho.

We will take you out of the tourist area into the "real" Ho Chi Minh City, to a pho place that's been serving noodle soup for more than 30 years. This place is one of Saigon's best kept secrets ... and it also serves great Vietnamese coffee.

After breakfast, we'll wander around the backstreets, past bakeries, com tam (broken rice) restaurants and other intriguing local shops. As we walk we'll start collecting snacks from local stalls and wandering vendors.

We'll walk through a chaotic local wet market, past dried, pickled and fresh produce, live seafood and a noisy eating area. As we poke around, we'll collect more snacks and some tropical fruit. Then we'll adjourn to the grounds of a nearby temple to eat the food we've collected. After our picnic we'll explore the temple, which is dedicated to an Imperial military leader. You can get your fortune told at the temple using a strange system of numbered sticks.

This tour, suitable for families, is a great introduction to Vietnam. During the tour we teach you some of the basics that will make your visit to Vietnam enjoyable, including how to cross the road! While it's not physically possible to eat everything you see on the tour, when we're finished with you, you should be able to identify a range of local dishes and know how to order them.

We are an anti-tour kind of operation. No stern lectures from us! Instead, expect to feel like you're hanging out with friends who are showing you the best - and tastiest - bits of their city.

We also understand that not everyone is comfortable on the back of motorbikes. Our focus is the food, not the bikes. So we created a morning walking tour (the Pho Trail) and evening tours with the scaredy-cat option of taking taxis to and from the tour area. We don't even poke fun at you for being a scaredy-cat! (We're nice like that.)
