The tour was recommended by family and friends. It was probably one of the best travel tips we have ever had. Five of us did the afternoon food tour and had a great experience with authentic food and super friendly and knowledgeable chauffeurs / bike riders / tour guides. We would do this again.

Vietnam is full of pleasant surprises and this is one of the best. I've just got back into the Hotel after 4 fun filled hours that I'd easily do again when I come back to Saigon. Travelling around on the back of a scooter, feeling very safe, being introduced to the best street food, seeing Saigon by night, with very... More

We did both the morning city tour and the night street food tour and both were fantastic. Guides are very friendly and knowledgeable, English is excellent, take you to a lot of really good local restaurants that you would never find on your own, especially on the food tour, definitely have a very light lunch before this tour. Guides also... More

Picked up from our hotel by 4 interesting lads and lassies. Had the best night seeing the sites of Saigon, doing battle with the traffic and going places we'd never 'normally' go. Opportunity to cook your own dinner and enjoy a few beers. Very well organised and have already recommended it to several tourists today even though we only did... More

What a great experience! We did the food tour and had a lot of fun. You sit on the back of the bike and students drive you. They like to practise their English, so it's nice to have a chat with them. They were really friendly and interested. I recommend anyone visiting HCMC to do this. Food was also great!

What a fun, unique tour with professional and very friendly guides! We went to five places off the tourist maps--a few young, fresh places and a few older, more established places. The food went beyond the typical Vietnamese fare that tourist usually think about and was so delicious! The bike guides were fun and talked about the local culture. They... More

We were picked up at our hotel at 7.30 am. We jumped on the back of their bikes, and had an exceptional good trip. The guides were enthusiastic, and keen to show us around on a food-journey around HCMC. We had a great evening with a lot of good and local food. It was well organized, and without any problems....

Excellent concept and really well done too. The variety of food was great as was the tatse and quality. The back of the bike means you get to see a bit of the city too, without having to worry about where you are or getting lost. Great team of hosts too which made it all the more enjoayble!

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!
