Owner description: 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.

I really can't fault my experience with Saigon Unseen. Adam is australian so communicating with him for booking is no hassle at all. I had Mr Ut as my driver for the day. He is so friendly, very happy and has great english which he is always trying to improve. He is so keen to please, always asking if I... 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

Adam is a very relaxed guy (just like catching... More

The first time we took our 13 year old daughters on the mopeds and they... More

We took a small gamble, and used TA reviews to pick this opportunity on our free day after a land tour and Mekong Cruise of Vietnam and Cambodia. And what a good choice it was. We, by the way, are a relatively recently retired and reasonably fit Canadian couple who love to travel, and to see non-touristy places whenever possible.... More

Last time I was in Saigon (for one month), Adam of Saigon Unseen gave me such a good introduction to crossing roads, life in Vietnam, getting around the city and where to go for such things as restorative cups of coffee that when I came back for a week in Oct, I booked another session with him. I often travel... More
