Saigon Food Tour on a Vespa (vegan/ vegetarian food tour available)

    Beyond the phở and bánh mì that most foreigners would invariably know, there are Vietnamese delights that you may be unable to get elsewhere.
    A food tour is great but our Sài Gòn Food Tour on a Vespa is an excellent experience. Let our local foodie experts take you on an unforgettable food hunt combined with city exploration on a Vespa!

    Highlights:

    • Sightseeing Saigon in the evening
    • Delicious street foods
    • Vietnamese cuisine knowledge (recipes, ingredients, herbs, and spices)
    • Vespa adventure
    • Live music event

    Your shared or private tour will begin as you are picked up from your hotel on a classic Vespa scooter. We chose Vespa because it was a chic trend in Saigon back in the 1950s and we would love you to experience the Saigon food tour in a better way.

    Saigon Food Tour on a Vespa
    • Our first stop for dinner is a BBQ local restaurant. The food is very fresh, and flavorful and balances well between the marinated meat, vegetables, herbs, and dipping sauces. One more thing about this local BBQ is that it is often served outdoors where you can sit on the pavement, enjoy local BBQ, and watch the nightlife happening in front of you.
    • The next dish is your choice, we can go for the classic Bánh Mì (a crispy baguette, grilled meat, fried egg, sauce, Vietnamese herbs), Bánh Xèo (a savory fried pancake made of rice flour, water, and turmeric powder served with many Vietnamese herbs)
    • It is time to taste the signature of Sai Gon, Cơm Tấm (marinated grilled pork with broken rice)
    • After that, we continue our Discovery of Saigon to Savor Vietnamese desserts. You will be amazed by many types of sweet treats such as nuts, grains, beans, flowers, seeds, roots, Vietnamese fruits, cooked flour, and eggs. After their meals, Vietnamese people prefer to have sweet dishes such as Che, sponge cakes, and some tropical fruits.
    • Our Saigon night tour will not be completed if we miss out on one of the most exciting places in Sai Gon which is Nguyen Hue walking street. Here is the best spot for viewing many majestic buildings in colorful neon lights, standing tall on busy roads such as the Bitexco Financial Tower – the tallest in Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon Tower, which has been recently renovated.
    • It’s time for music! We will make our way to a local acoustic music Cafe & enjoy a Vietnamese coffee while listening to music.

    Founder & Photography Guide

    Specialties: Culture, landscape, portrait, hiking, active and adventurous tour

    Besides my unlimited passion for traveling, a professional tour guide for over a decade, I have been taking photographs since sitting at Hanoi of the University of Culture in the early 2000s. Photography started as a hobby but it was seriously taken due to my work relations and my significant passion for the beauty of our world, especially in Southeast Asian parts such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

    Within a few years of taking photographs, my works began to be recognized by many reliable international publications such as AFAR Travel, The Times, and The Daily Telegraph newspaper. In addition, I continuously add to my growing profile by winning numerous major awards: 3rd Position of The Independent Photographer 2018, 1st Position of Amateur Photographer of the year 2018, Grand Prize Winner of the AFAR Travel Photography 2019, and a Gold Award of San Francisco Bay International Photography 2020.

    I photograph a wide variety of subjects, from travel to landscapes to street scenes. I enjoy documenting the East’s rich cultural heritage and its land soaked in glorious sunrise or sunset light in remote and secluded spots. And, I am very happy to share my knowledge and experience with you. You can visit Luminousvietnamtour to explore tour!
