Best way to see Saigon, by far. You can't get a sense of the wild energy of the moped traffic of Saigon unless you are on one, so let an expert drive for you. It's chaotic but controlled. Not a single accident witnessed anywhere. You get a helmet as well. The drivers speak excellent English, and go out of their... More

We had our tour last night and this is by far the best activity we've done during our entire trip to Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Our guides were An and Thu and they were incredibly friendly, cheerful, funny and informative. They knew a lot about the city, the country and the food and they shared as much as they could... More

It's a fantastic was to discover the tiny roads and places we would not have wandered to on our own. My husband and I chose the night tour and we were joined by 2 other... More

This a unique and fun way of seeing Ho Chi Minh City. We only had one day and this was perfect. It was an amazing experience and our guides were friendly and a lot of fun. We did the city tour. Great way to get a taste of everything. As vegetarians they were able to arrange local places for us... More

We took the evening street food tour. Each person gets their own driver for the whole night. We joined a group of 20 people and visited 5 different street food vendors. The drivers are amazing, fun and interesting people. Our drivers were Sin and Vy and they explained the food really well. The food was fresh and tasty too.
