Saigon Street Food Tour: the 10 Tastings
We loved our food tour with Elise. She was very friendly and easy to talk to. She took us all throughout Ho Chi Minh city. We started at the more touristy spots, but as the tour went on, she really took us off the beaten path and we went to some really local food spots that I would have never walked into otherwise. We were the only Americans at most of the food places Elise took us too (which I find to be a plus, because if the restaurant is full of locals, you know its good). Also, Elise didn't stick to the script and took us around to places she thought we might like. For example, we were eating some street food in the park when Elise and my girlfriend struck up a conversation about skin care. This conversation led to Elise taking us to a very cool skin care store that was far away from the touristy spots. From there, we told Elise we wanted to buy some spices and teas to bring back to the States and Elise took us to her neighborhood supermarket where we got to see how the locals shop. It was awesome. I would definitely recommend this tour.
