    We had so much fun on this tour and tried foods I never would have tried on my own. Our guide was wonderful and even a heavy downpour didn't ruin our good time.

    I was not satisfied.
    I wanted to hear the explanation of the contents of the foods and the historical background etc. more. The explanation of the guide was inadequate. I used to take a similar tour in Hanoi, but I was very satisfied for me. Tour in Ho Chi Minh was not good at all.
    I do not recommend this tour.
