Saigon Street Food Tour: the 10 Tastings
Me and my husband decided to make a trip to Vietnam and I wanted to try some authentic local Vietnamese food. Did some research and came across With Locals. We decided to go for the Saigon half day food tour and we picked Elise as our guide. We definitely had no regrets with our choice. She was a delight and what I appreciated about her is that, she was patient enough to entertain my 1001 questions before I got there. She was basically guiding us on transportation, places to visit and she even helped us to plan a trip to Mekong Delta (Can Tho) which is also her hometown. We probably wont not be able to enjoy our holiday like locals if its not for her. As for the food tour itself, Elise definitely knows a food and she is a foodie FOR SURE!! She took us to lovely food places (and no, not those fancy touristy restaurants) which was amazing! We enjoyed all the food to the point both me and my husband were unable to pick our favorites. Just by talking to Elise, I know that she is very passionate about her city and her food and it made the tour all more interesting. Not only that, post tour, she always checks up on us and even made us a list of other lovely food to try till the end of our stay.
It was a wonderful experience with Elise and Elise, both me and my husband could not thank you enough for helping us around in Saigon. My husband is still going on and on about the food there :)
For us, we did not just went for a tour with a tour agent, we actually found a friend in the process and for those who decided to go for this tour, I would recommend Elise with no doubts :)
Thanks again Elise and we will look for you if we visit Saigon again. xx
