Would highly recommend. One of the main highlights of our time in Vietnam. We were buzzing! 5 food stops, lovely lovely guides, great English speakers and you're taken to local places you would never normally find as a tourist. Absolutely brilliant.

I booked the morning "Saigon City Tour" and had a pleasant half-day seeing different aspects of the city. My guide, Thao, was knowledgeable, friendly, and candid, and it was great to be able to hear a local's views on city life. I was the only person on the tour, and was surprised to see that my guide and I were... More

Back of the Bike Tours is definitely a highlight during our 4 week tour of SE Asia. We took the afternoon city tour with Thao and Thi as our drivers and Duc Anh was our spotter / photographer. WOW!!! What an experience to be zipping through the traffic frenzy of everyday life in HCMC. I thought the experience might be... More

This is my second time dong this food tour, I enjoyed the first so much that when I visited Saigon again I knew we had to do this. The food was different to the first tour but just as delicious, the guides were very friendly and warm, and the bike rides just as exhilarating. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Back of the Bike's food tour. Our guides, both young women with university educations, were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the city. All the food was excellent and riding on the back of a motorbike was an exciting way to see HCMC. Highly recommend this tour.

This was my third time on the tour and was intrigued to see how it had changed since 2012 and I was not disappointed. The food was all delicious and the experience was fun. The tour was operated professionally and the manager even called to check on a certain issue I had which showed good customer service. The tours are... More
