Where the tour will end?

Ho Chi Minh city secret food tour will end at a pavement — located vendor's stall in front of Saigon University.

Is your food tour suitable for a vegetarian or someone with other dietary requirements?

Most of our foods are made with pork seafood, however vegetarian options are available. Due to the nature of creating a well balanced and thoughtful gastronomy experience, many of our tours are unable to accommodate certain dietary restrictions. Please contact us prior to booking your tour to see if we are able to accommodate your dietary needs.

I am traveling with my family, is the tour ok for infants/children?

Children are more than welcome to our tour and it's free for any child 2 years or under! We have had many families attend from all over the world and everyone enjoyed the tour.

I don't drink alcohol. Can I book your tour?

This is not a problem. Our included drinks are all non-alcoholic. And during the tour, you can order whatever you like. Our friendly guides will help you with all their best.

Is there enough food during your tour?

Our tours provide our customers with a lot of food. Trust us, you will not need to eat a meal after our food tour!

Where do I add my discount voucher?

Ho Chi Minh Voucher

I would like to take your tour but it is already fully booked. Is there a way I can do the tour?

Our tours are often sold out very quickly. If the date you requested is not available, please do not hesitate to email us and we can see if there is anything we can do.

Is there a lot of walking?

Please wear comfortable shoes. There will be around 1 hour walking but it's not too difficult and there are no hills or stairs. If you walk slowly, then our guide will walk slowly as well.

I cannot find a way to print the confirmation. Is it OK if I have it on my phone?

You do not have to print your voucher. A confirmation on your phone will be fine!

If I purchase a voucher as a gift, or am given a voucher how long is it valid for?

All of our vouchers expire one year from the date of purchase.

How many people max are on this tour?

We take 11 people maximum. If you're more than 11 people, please do not hesitate to email us and will try to see if we can accommodate.


Our guide will take care of everything. Should you wish to try something special, please inform our guide and they will do their best to make you happy.


We work with small shops in Ho Chi Minh City. The food and drink we buy is top-quality, fresh, and local!

What if it rains or I change my plans?

We have only two seasons in Ho Chi Minh City: rainy and dry seasons (or we always joke hot and super hot seasons). The rainy season occurs from mid July-mid October, so please prepare your raincoat or umbrella during this time when coming to Vietnam. It's still a fun way to explore Saigon's cuisine cultures. We also inform you that we go through with the tour with 2 people minimum! Please read our Terms and Conditions: https://www.secretfoodtours.com/terms-and-conditions/

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
