My sister, friend and I did the nighttime street food tour and loved it (my sister lives in HCMC and often takes friends/family on the tour when they come to visit). They could accommodate my dietary requirement and the food was still great for everyone. They took us to places in districts that we had never been, and probably would... More

We absolutely loved this experience with Back of the Bike - we did the 4 hour night food tour and ate the best food of our trip with these wonderful engaging guides ! And we were never fearful as they wove their way through the 7 million bikes that are in Saigon ! The guides talked about their lives, described... More

We were in Vietnam in 2013 and the Vespa Food tour was a highlight of our trip. When we decided to return to Vietnam we wanted to do the food tour again. Overall, we would rate Back of the Bike Food Tour higher than the Vespa food tour. BOB drivers speak English so they point out things while you are... More

The reviews don't lie — these guys really know what they're doing. Back of the Bike runs a pretty smooth operation from their website and registration to the tour logistics and staff. I'd say the best part about this tour is being able to talk with the educated, curious, and friendly bike drivers. We got to know quite a bit... More

The half day city tour was great fun and gave a super insight into HCMC's main sights from a different perspective. Everything worked without any problems - from pick-up to drop off we were very well taken care off. The staff are fun and engaging, safe drivers and knowledgeable city guides - they gave us lot of information about their... More

The BOBT would not been have been as fun if the group did not include the super friendly staff who my family and I really enjoyed talking to and mingling with. All of them spoke excellent English (and Xuan speaks a little Spanish (: ) which was a great help. They were thorough in showing us the city but their... More

This was hands down the best tour we did while in Vietnam! The crew picked us up at our hotel and we started our 3+ hour tour of Ho Chi Minh City. Once you spend some time in Vietnam, you'll notice that traveling by scooter is the way of life and it looks exciting and overwhelming. There are several different... More
