Saigon Unseen is a new business on the scene with a view of taking people to places they aren't likely to see on a standard tour. Our concept is to show travelers a different side to Saigon, it's not always pretty but it is pretty amazing.Our aim is to provide a unique view that combines traveling on the back of a motorbike through the mayhem and chaos that are Saigon streets.At Saigon Unseen we now offer Motor Bike Tours, Walking Tours and Photography Tours, full details can be found on our website.

We met Adam at the Opera house and off we went exploring Saigon. The back streets & alleys of old Saigon, markets, temples, and stopping for one the best Vietnamese iced coffee ever with the locals. We visited a small market and bought some local fruits, much more enjoyable that some of the huge markets which are a crush of... More

This was my fifth trip to VN. I had Mr Ut for the day. He arrived on time and took me all around HCM. Great guy and safe driver. I saw all kinds of cool stuff I would have otherwise never seen. Highly recommend

My wife and I took this tour on our first day in Vietnam after arranging with Adam via email. Our drivers, Ut and Sau were punctual, very friendly and knowledgeable. We went around central HCMC at first then turned down some backstreets to drive down a packed market street with vendors selling fish, veg, frogs, live chickens etc. We went... More

An invaluable and informative half-day tour, especially for getting the feel of the various aspects of this fascinating city. Mr Ut was fun, made sure we didn't miss anything, and was also a skilled and considerate motorbike driver. The pho lunch was one of the best yet. Highly recommended.

What better way to experience such a unique culture other than by motor bike! The smells, the heat, the noise and ensuing chaos is all part of Viet Nam and its people. Our Saigon Unseen motor tour of HCMC was easy to book (via text through Adam), and met all expectations. Our guide Mr Ut, was very informative and thorough... More

This is a personal experience and a great way to really see the city and meets its people. You will get into places that would be difficult to even know about, let alone access. Our guide, Ut, was friendly, knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. Both he and his partner were safe drivers, making it a comfortable experience for my husband and... More

This being our second visit to Saigon we were hoping to gain a better understanding of what it is actually like living in such a 'full on' city & catching up with Adam for a pleasant stroll around districts 1 and 4 proved to be just what we were looking for. Adam is a very relaxed guy (just like catching... More
