Welcome to Saigon
Home of the world’s best street food (and food tours)
Sample some of the world’s best street food with Saigon Street Eats, created by an Australian-Vietnamese couple who are obsessed with Vietnamese food. Barbara and Vu run small group street food tours in Ho Chi Minh City, tours that delve into the culture, history and food of this exciting and crazy metropolis.
We are an anti-tour un-tour kind of operation. No stern lectures, no uniforms and no matchy-matchy bikes. We want you to feel like you’re hanging out with friends who are showing you the best — and tastiest — bits of their city.
That tastiness includes dishes you won’t find outside of Vietnam, or even outside of Saigon. All our street food tours are seasoned with stories that will help you understand the country’s unique history and culture, and how these intersect in the food. (Did we mention it’s the best in the world?)
The Saigon Street Eats team understands that not everyone is comfortable on the back of a motorbike. 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.)
Check out our NEW tour upgrade option: Pasteur Street craft beer, available on our evening tours. We are the only tour company in town offering a selection of Saigon-brewed American-style craft beer featuring uniquely Vietnamese flavours. Our craft beer packs contain three brews: Passionfruit Wheat Ale (4%); Jasmine IPA (6.5%) and Spice Island Saison (7.2%).

Vietnamese food is the best in the world.
And the best Vietnamese food is available on the streets of HCM City.
But it’s not always easy to experience authentic street food without some local help.
That’s where we come in!
Let us show you what the locals eat. Leave the tourist area behind and experience the real Vietnam, eating and laughing alongside the locals.
All of Saigon Street Eats’ tours are designed by Australian-Vietnamese couple Barbara and Vu, who met in a restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City in early 2008 when Vu crashed an office Tet party.
They have been eating their way around the city ever since, stopping only briefly to have a baby and to chase street food sensations in Singapore and Thailand.
Barbara and Vu decided to start street food tours of Ho Chi Minh City after realising how few non-Vietnamese people were able to enjoy their favourite activity — eating Saigon’s best street food!
