An exhilarating night braving the crazy traffic on 'back of a bike' our hosts were terrific very polite and eager to explain the different dishes. Provides a very different view of the city than that usually seen by tourists.

My partner and I booked on to the night street food tour with Back of the Bike Tours, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was completely terrified of being on a motorbike, but my tour guide drove safely and chatted away, which put me at ease. We got to try street food dishes at five different stops in a number of...

Can't recommend it more! Was the highlight of my stay in Vietnam, so much fun and the food was amazing. We felt really safe and the guides we had were a lot of fun and really nice. Zipping around on the back of the scooter was such a great way to see the city. Loved that they send you photos... More

What an amazing experience. I had the chance to spend three days in HCM as a solo traveler so I knew I wanted to enjoy everything it threw at me. I started at 8am for the City Tour. Prompt arrival, courteous staff and I ended up having a private tour too. The driving skills of my lightweight female driver carrying... More

Almost a year after having done this tour, I still remember it fondly. I (middle-aged woman) was traveling solo and this gave me something to do. My driver was a young man, who was courteous, and reassuring (when it came to the chaos that is motorbike travel in HCMC). I think the tour is expensive, given the low cost of... More

I had heard about these folks from friends and we booked a tour for the evening following our arrival in HCMC. Saigon traffic is insane but these young women are expert drivers and I never felt uncomfortable as we each rode on the back of a motorcycle whizzing through the HCMC traffic. They picked us up at our hotel and... More

A fantastic Saturday night with our friendly drivers around HCM. Good food and great fun. Close your eyes and pray! Interesting facts and figures as we went. Hotel pick up and city drop off made things so easy.

So great! My friends and I were in Vietnam/Thailand for two weeks, and we all agreed that this was the best part of our trip. We did the street food tour at night, getting picked up at our hotel. Five stops with great food and free drinks (note: they suggest not eating for several hours before riding... take the advice!... More

We arranged a private tour for my wife and me on a recent Saturday afternoon. We were visiting HCMC for the day while on a Celebrity cruise. The team met us at the Notre Dame Cathedral, and we set out for a 4 hour+ tour of this amazing city. Our drivers were outstanding! They genuinely enjoyed sharing their city with... More

We learned a lot from the tour guides and it wasn't boring. This is something we highly recommend to those who want to explore Ho Chi Minh City.
