I went on a photography tour with Adam Martin, their photography guru from Moto Foto, and think I got my money's worth in the first 10 minutes. I learnt things about my camera that I didn't know as well as using my camera in modes other than auto. Apart from practical knowldege and skills I saw parts of Ho Chi... More

For any who have been to Ho Chi Minh City you will well remember the mayhem of trying to cross lanes of non-stop traffic, so it was with a 'healthy' respect that my husband, daughter and myself booked a walking tour with Adam. And we were so glad we did! Adam has a relaxed and easy-going attitude, and that is... More

I had a great experience when shown the real Saigon with my guide, Ut.He has a great sense of humour and is very knowledgeable. I was shown everything from the poorest to the richest and had my best meal at a favourite cafe of Ut's. I was taken to a family home to see how the locals live. You don't... More

My 2 children (aged 13 and 11) thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour in districts 1 and 4 with Adam. This was the first tour we did as we arrived in HCMC and what a great introduction Adam gave us to this wonderful city. Not only did we see areas we would never have come across on our own, but Adams... More

We took this tour with Adam as we are travellers who seek out the "different", "local" and "individual". We had a wonderful morning exploring many back back streets where real life in Saigon happens. Adam was informative without needing to quote dates, times and significant people to us. He assessed what we had already seen and took us on a... More

Thanks to our fantastic guides we had a great tour, they took us to see some sights that would have been impossible to work out on our own and to top it off were very friendly and good fun too! PS thanks for recommending the pub to watch state of origin, ended with some happy campers that night!

I booked the Moto Foto Tour for two days. My guide was Adam Robert Young, who is also a professional photographer on the staff of a local magazine. As a intermediate photographer new to street photography, Adam's experience living in Ho Chi Minh city as well as his technical and artistic expertise made the day more than a tour of... More

We saw the so many areas of Saigon which were really interesting and different from what you see in District 1 (and that we would not have seen if we had not done this tour). Everywhere we went were local spots, off the beaten path. Because of this tour, I feel like we got to see a more well rounded... More

A fantastic 4 hours on the back of a motor bike with well informed very careful riders, it was a real eye opener to the great divide between old and new and rich and poor in Vietnam. A couple of rest stops and some delicious pho for lunch made it a very comfortable experience and a good way to see... More
