Savor Saigon Food Tour Testimonials

“Calvin and Nhan showed us a side of Ho Chi Minh City that we never would have found on our own and exposed us to some mind-blowing food. The biggest bonus is that they are cool to hang out with.”

“Calvin and Nhan showed me a Saigon that I would have never found on my own. Street food is relatively easy to find but the small restaurants and cool shops they know about would have never been on my radar without them. With just a little direction about what it is you want to explore and learn more about, you will be off and running and your options will be limitless.”

“Calvin is very knowledgeable in the many different provinces in Vietnam. He knows all the ins and outs of Vietnam, and is knowledgeable of all the exquisite food places and restaurants from each region. His first-hand experience is invaluable. Especially, if you would like to experience all of the different foods Vietnam has to offer. I’ve had a very good experience and would highly recommend him as a guide.”

“As I was planning my first trip to Saigon, I had the luck of being introduced to Calvin and Nhan through a mutual friend. I came to Vietnam clueless, but through Calvin and Nhan, I was set up in a comfortable guesthouse, shown around town, and in the end able to see a number of off-the-beaten path places and experience a wide spectrum of foods that I wouldn’t have on my own. Seeing the city on the back of a motorbike while floating along that crazy river of traffic was just a delightful experience.

(Note: Remember to ask about the blown up turtle statue.) Nhan’s generous helpfulness and enthusiasm for Vietnamese food and culture in combination with Calvin’s deep understanding of Vietnamese history and politics, make for the best travel company I could have asked for. I instantly fell in love with Vietnam and I think a large part of the reason for that was because of these two fine human beings! See you next time I’m in town!”
