    Scooter Saigon Tour
    Stop: 4 hours
    Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short talk about the tour program and making sure you are ok on the motorbike, we weave around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see a lots of must-see attractions, local markets, and many interesting things of the city. Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions in District 1 including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office. Head to Thich Quang Duc Memorial where you listen to the mysterious story about the unburned heart. Then we drive to Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment building since the 1960s to learn more about the real local life which is totally different from what you see in the city center. After that, we drive to Ho Thi Ky - the biggest wholesale flower market and Cambodian market hidden in alleyways to see thousands of colorful flowers and many strange things. We stop at an 80-year coffee shop hidden in an alley to learn how to make "Vot" coffee, interact with the nice owner, enjoy a drink and chat leisurely with your guides as friends. Arriving in China Town in District 5, we visit Binh Tay Market, Thien Hau Temple and have a drive around brilliant gems including fashion street, painting street, medicine street, electronic market, fabric market, lantern market, fruit market, bird market. On the way, we have 3 food stops. At the first stop, we visit one of Saigon's best Banh mi shops, see how they make a great Vietnamese sandwich, buy one and eat it while sipping a drink at the coffee shop like locals. At the second food stop which is an over 30-year-old food stall selling Grilled banana in sticky rice and banana leaf. We eat crispy Vietnamese pancake and Rice noodles with grilled pork/fried roll at a 30-year-old restaurant. The guide not only tells you how to eat but also shows you how skillful chefs cook the foods. The guide returns you to the hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.

I was looking at tours to experience food and some city sights. This one is perfect. We are a middle aged couple and had a great time on the back of cycles driven by Shane and V. The foods and coffee were all delicious, from tiny restaurants more than street carts that I was imagining. We stopped at several historic sites, temples and markets. All through the afternoon we learned about history and culture. We both would recommend this tour and our guides for anyone wanting to experience the city with private guides rather than a large tour bus.

Insightful, comedic, vividly interesting and overall super good fun. Tour guide was well informed, hospitable and courteous as well as funny and evidently keen on displaying the true beauty of the city.
Would recommend to anyone to give it a try, very much worth the bargain price point!!

Tom took me around Ho Chi Minh on the back of his scooter stopping by places to get something to eat and some of the main sightseeing spots. It was a great way to explore the city and visit some hidden spots that you wouldn't visit without the guide of a local. I totally recommend this tour if you're visiting HCMC!

I had so much fun! I did not expect I will enjoy the tour because I was kinda scared since it was my first time to tour around a new place riding a scooter. It was a great thing our guides were very nice and they really took care of us. Thanks to our tour guides Maison, Bean, special mention to Shayne and Peter who told us very informative details/stories of the places we visited. And of course for introducing to us the yummy, sumptuous, mouth watering local delicacies which we all really enjoyed. I highly recommend them to everyone even to the scared ones in riding a scooter. They are all professionals and very cautious. Though we were in the middle of the ride in a busy street, I was even able to pull out my phone to take some photos coz I really felt safe with my partner driver, shoutout to Shayne/Huy Diep! I can confidently say that you will have a safe and awesome experience with these people. Kudos to Team Scooter Saigon! :-)

Booked this tour for 3 of us to go around HCM by private moped. Cannot recommend enough we had such a fun time! Shane, Peter, and Seven were so kind and professional and made a really great effort to connect with us and provide a really personal experience. We mentioned we were trying to find a certain Japanese Whisky, and they took us to a small Japanese store where we found what we'd spent days looking for! That wasn't even part of the agenda. The tour was great with a lot of "off the beaten path" little markets, alleyways, and food stalls to experience and we felt totally safe and taken care of the entire time. They were so knowledgable about everything and it was obvious they really enjoyed their job. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed this and Shane, Peter and Seven were what really made this day special for us. Thanks so much for everything!

Navi was my scooter driver and tour guide for this excellent 4-hour excursion. She was friendly, very knowledgeable and made me feel very safe on the motorbike! The process for booking the tour was very easy. They have a number of tour options to choose from on their website and I texted them through WhatsApp and they responded promptly every time. I also called them through WhatsApp and they picked right up. The entire experience was fantastic, the price was right and Navi was both professional and fun! You should definitely take this tour and be sure to request her! You can choose whatever time you prefer and they will come pick you up and drop you off at the end of the tour. They will tailor the tour to your individual tastes and preferences! I really can’t say enough good things, the tour really was everything I could have hoped for!

My husband and I went on this tour last week and thought it was excellent. Peter and Ramsey where our guides. We felt safe the entire. Time on the back or the motorbikes and they were very accommodating when I requested to change one of the foods. It allowed us to see a large amount of the sights of ho chi min in a short period of time, while having locals give you some inside tips. Their English was excellent. Would recommend

Four lovely local students guided us through a back street tour of eats and sights. We all loved it - including our teenage boys. Local students bought us street food and showed us some off the beaten track sights and we discussed life along the way! Highly recommended.
