This was an all around awesome experience: Riding the bikes at night through the streets of HCMC was exhilarating; we really enjoyed talking to our guides about their experiences living in the city. The food was amazing- it would be hard to find it on your own. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, despite the somewhat high cost of the tour. It's really worth... More

This was our first time to Ho Chi Minh city and we went on the Morning city tour with Back of Bike. We had a great time with them. They even suggested us an itinerary to suit our needs, which was much appreciated! What a great service! Highly recommended!

Even after spending our first evening in HCMC at Apocalypse Now until 4am, it was not hard to wake up at 7am for our City Tour with Back of the Bike tours. I was already excited because the company had been recommended by friends, but it surpassed my expectations in every possible way. The tour guides made us feel safe... More

We booked a private tour because we needed a specific time, and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way! Two drivers picked us up from our hotel and they were seriously the most friendly people ever! The food experience we had was awesome, but I think what makes this tour special is the people. They don't have to try... More

Just want everyone to know how fabulous this experience is. My husband isn't as adventurous as some in the food stakes but he out-did himself with this. The tour guides were fun and informative and we never felt unsafe on the bikes. Have recommended it to everyone as the highlight of our Vietnamese experience!!

We were recommended this tour by a friend, after reading the previous reviews it lived up to all expectations! We are both 'foodies' and this was our last night of our Vietnam tour. Our guides were so informative about the food, HCMC and the culture. We have now returned to England and were delighted this week when we received an... More

We did this tour 3 days ago and had an awesome time. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting HCMC, all the guides/riders were excellent and quite funny. Their insights were great, the food we ate was fantastic. P.s. the jokes were hilarious too!

No need to repeat all the positive reviews. They are all well deserved. We came on our honeymoon in March 2014. Wish we could have done a daytime tour as well.

We had heard about this trip from a friend who had said you have to do this and with a 9 year old I was a little apprehensive but it was the highlight of our stay. The guides were amazing and my daughter loved every minute of it and felt really safe. We stopped 5 times and the food was... More

I would like to congratulate you on an extraordinary tour. Thao and Tuan were my guides and I can honestly say that I will be recommending your program to as many people as I know. (We are currently living in Hanoi). The service, Thao’s knowledge, dedication, personality and food choices were extraordinary. I wish you all the best for continued... More
