A truly great experience on this 6-9pm tour eating at 5 different Vietnamese eateries. Food sampled was from 3 different regions of Vietnam and all very edible! We were able to taste food that we would never have been able to try on our own. The guides were a fun bunch of people who truly looked after our every need.... More

The point is, if you do not speak Vietnamese and do not know the locals, a moped tour is one of the best ways to see the city. One of the main reasons is that almost everyone is using one and you would get a feel for the traffic frenzy without a personal experience riding on the back of one... More

We did this great tour a few wks back, now & had jsut the best time. Would have to have been the highlight of our tour. Picked up exactly on time from our hotel & taken all over the city for different meals. Guides speak perfect english & very knowledgeable. Best 3 hrs which went way to fast.

We signed for the day tour and was guided by Thuy and her colleague. Riding on the back of the bike with all the crazy traffic was a fantastic experience. We were brought to around to taste many local dishes and fruits. In particular, the coffee we tried was very good. Thuy was also extremely helpful. We were heading to... More

Whether you book Food Tour or City Tour in the morning, please ignore your buffet breakfast at the hotel which you are staying. If not, you wil miss a big chance to enjoy many special street foods during your motorbike tour. Thank you Chad & Thuy for providing me a lovely tour to glimpse the contrasting lifestyles of modern Saigon

We had an absolute awesome time doing this. We took the street food tour for 50usd as we were short on time and really interested to try some of the street food in HCMC. What better way to do it than on the back of a bike like the locals and with people who know really good places to go?!... More

Saigon is a crazy busy town and to drive your self... good luck. I called the guys up and they picked me up for the evening tour. The guide is just hilarious funny and the food was just awesome. The price is a bit more but you definitely get worth you money. Definitely a must do!

If you go to saigon, then you have to ride on a motorcycle. it is an amazing experience being part of the sea of traffic that morphs around itself. we are vegetarians, and our guides picked out really fantastic places. it was the best food we ate in...

We opted for the "Perfect Day" package and it couldn't have been a better day. We spent most of the day with the co-owners, Fred and Chet, and they were gracious, funny, and just awesome. Our lunch was deliciously prepared and they really focused on teaching us the techniques. The massage we got was excellent. The food tour was the... More
