We were referred to Saigon Unseen by a friend - our tour guides were fantastic! I've done tours in Joburg, Vientiane, KL and Beijing but this was the best I've been on. Ut and Wa were great guys and fun to spend the morning touring all of the districts in Saigon. We got to see behind the touristy exterior to... More

A friend of mine had enjoyed this tour while in Vietnam and recommended my family and I should not visit Saigon with out spending time with Adam and doing this tour. Adam and his experienced drivers collected myself, husband and 14yro son from our hotel and took time to explain the tour before hopping on our bikes. We had been... More

Adam Martin took my son (15yrs old) on the Moto Foto Tour as my son is into photography. It was seamless to organise with Adam being prompt replying to emails. My son raved about his Moto Foto Tour! His words " Adam is a really cool guy, so friendly and relaxed". The photo tour on the back of the bike... More

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 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!
