This tour, perfect for history and war buffs, will take you back to wartime where you can explore the famous Cu Chi tunnels, have an opportunity to try your hand at shooting accuracy with an AK-47 and even sample food eaten by Vietnamese soldiers during the war.
We pick up at your hotel to Cu Chi Tunnel for 60km from Ho Chi Minh City. Cu Chi is now considered a heroic district for its role in the anti – American war in Vietnam. It is legendary for its tunnels system of over 220 km and is a popular spot for both Vietnamese and foreigner.
The famous Cu Chi tunnels are a network of underground tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City. The tunnels were used as a military base for resistance to US forces during the Vietnam War and often used as hiding spots or spy activities.
Along the way to Cu Chi from Ho Chi Minh city, we will pass by the scenic local countryside, where you might even spot ducks and buffalo cooling off in the river. You will find it hard to imagine the destruction and damage that once dominated the area, caused by bombing and mines when Cu Chi was “a free target zone.”

Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you).
After a short riding instruction and program introduction of Night Saigon Food Tour by Motorbike, we hop on the motorbike. The guide makes sure you are ok on the motorbike before weaving around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see the city.
1st stop: We stop at over 30-year-old Bot Chien Dat Thanh – the oldest and most famous places to eat Pan-fried scrambled egg rice cake and Dumplings. Two of these foods are Saigon’s specialty foods which perhaps could not be found in other regions. The guide shows you how the skillful cook fries Pan-fried scrambled egg rice on the large flat pan until crispy.
2nd stop: After that, we have a short walk on the pavement to reach an over 30-year-old restaurant to see how they grill beef wrapped in green wild betel leaf. The sweet smell can make you would like to eat this food right away. The guide shows you how to eat the grilled beef with rice noodles with vegetables, herbs, rice noodles, rice paper, and special sauce.
3rd stop: Passing through Nguyen Thien Thuat buildings since the 1960s, we stop at Ho Thi Ky flower market which is the biggest flower market and known as the non-sleeping market. Coming here, you have a chance to walk through alleyways lined with flower shops with thousands of colorful and sweet-smelling flowers. Trolling to Cambodian market hidden in Ho Thi Ky, you can immerse yourself into local life, and learn to grill a banana girdle cake and enjoy the crispy and smelling cake.
4th stop: It is time to zip through Saigon and reach one of the oldest apartment buildings – Ngo Gia Tu buildings on Su Van Hanh Street. The area is overwhelmed with busy night street food stalls which are the favourite of locals. It is a chance to eat Coconut ice cream at a dessert shop since 1975 or eat crispy Vietnamese pancakes at a Banh xeo stall.
5th stop: Stopping at a long-standing Broken rice restaurant, we see how they grill pork on charcoal, buy a portion of Broken rice and eat at the next stop. Broken rice should not be missed on a Saigon food tour because it is a specialty food of the city. It is a perfect blend of the broken rice, grilled pork, cucumber, pickles, green onion oil, fish sauce dip.
6th stop: Next, we head to District 4 a tiny humble island district separated from the city’s other parts by channels and rivers. This area is the former mafia hotspot run by Nam Cam notorious crime boss but has become a paradise of foodies in recent. We drive around Xom Chieu market – one of the top night street food markets with countless stalls, foods, busy street vendors and dinners. The last and funniest stop is a restaurant in Vinh Khanh snail street where hundreds of dinners sit, eat, drink, and talk leisurely under the sky. There we enjoy the most popular dishes such as Roasted ca na snail with salt, steamed clam with lemongrass, Grilled scallop with green onion oil. We make sure that it will be fun to eat the snail and shellfish dishes. If you dare enough to try Fertilized duck egg, we are happy to help you to crack the egg an eat. If you can not eat seafood, we will order amazing meat dishes for you. We also sip some local beers, cheer “1,2,3 dzo” like locals. Just experience the “Nhau” and “Snail eating” culture with your new friends.
