The Most Acclaimed Food Tour in Vietnam: Sample the most amazing dishes that Vietnam has to offer! Taste your way through cuisine from North Vietnam, Hue and The South in one amazing street food city: Saigon!
The “XO Foodie” is the most acclaimed Vietnam food tour, and is designed to introduce you to the dishes and desserts that most food blogs and other tours don’t really touch upon!
We are also the only Vietnam food tour to be voted one of the top 9 food tours in the world by Forbes magazine and one of the top 10 city tours in the world by USA Today!
On the XO Foodie Tour we will take you to the most popular street stalls and hidden alleyways in the city and show you where the locals really love to eat! So save your appetite, delight your palate and let us fill your tummy with delicious and authentic Vietnamese food!
This world-renowned Ho Chi Minh City Food Tour focuses on street food dishes that most people outside of Vietnam have never had a chance to experience. Unlike most other Vietnam food tours, we won’t serve you Pho, Spring Rolls, Vietnamese Pancakes, or Banh Mi Sandwiches. We also won’t make you eat dog meat, bugs, organs, raw food or anything too weird.
The XO Foodie Tour is only available in the evenings when most of the street vendors open for business. All food drinks are included in the price!
