What to expect
This tour begins with pickup at your Saigon hotel, where you don a helmet and hop on a motorbike behind a driver/guide. Weave through the morning streets as Saigon wakes up: see street sweepers moving through the city, street vendors selling breakfast to locals, and motorbikes zipping through crowded roundabouts. Stop at Saigon highlights including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, the Saigon Central Post Office, and Independence Palace. Then visit the Nguyen Thien Thuat to see what life was like in the 1960s and today. Continue to the biggest flower market in Saigon, where motorbikes squeeze through narrow alleys, and spot local landmarks along the way. Stop at an 80-year-old coffee shop to learn to make your own Saigonese coffee. Then head to Binh Tay Market, in District 5, and see everything from street paintings, to book markets, and fashionable neighborhoods. See the stilt houses of the city's slums on your way to Ben Thanh Market. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

    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 7 districts, lots of must-see attractions, 11 markets, and many interesting things of the city. Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office. Then we drive along Independence Palace, War Remnants Museum, and Turtle Lake. 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 back, we show you stilt houses in slum areas along Saigon channels. The scene reflects a sharp contrast between the poor and the rich in the city. Ben Thanh market is the last attraction in the journey. The guide returns you to the hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.

Highly recommend!
We had a fantastic tour with Shane and Rose. Excellent drivers, friendly, fun and very interesting. Went to back streets and saw sites in the city off the tourist tracks, including flower market, local housing, the oldest coffee house, temples, the burning monks monument and more. Happy to take us to a couple of places we especially requested. One of the best days out we've had. Also sent us recommendations for places to eat. Thank you Shane and Rose for making it a special day.

An absolutely great experience
Jan 2020
Had a great time from start to finish. Awesome itinerary, cool places and lovely guide. Shane was warm, humorous and knowledgeable. Throughout the tour, he shared lots of information and was easy to chat with. On his scooter, we wove through alleyways and side streets to markets (textile, flower, fruit, plant, Cambodian, seafood markets etc) and apartments in the heart of the local community. The cheo leo we visited was the oldest in town and served a mean cup of coffee. For anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh, I would strongly recommend this tour!

THE BEST way to experience Ho Chi Minh City
We were unsure whether a motorcycle tour would be ok for our family of five (kids aged 8, 12 and 15), but we are SO GLAD WE DID THIS!! We had such a fun morning with our awesome local guides on the 4 hour Unseen Saigon tour. The five of us were on 5 bikes with 5 drivers (3 female, 2 male). We all wore helmets, were looked after superbly by our friendly and professional guides and felt safe the whole time. There is nothing like being among the locals, in the traffic, traveling the way they do. The traffic is organized chaos, and our drivers were very skilled in making our way through it. The locations visited included a local apartment building, memorial, markets, back streets and alleys, church, temple , pagoda and coffee shop that you won’t see any other way. Can’t recommend this tour highly enough. Our tour guides felt more like friends and we will treasure our photos of the morning we spent with them in Saigon. A huge thanks to Shane, Peter, Mi, Thao and Vy- you guys are the best!

30 minutes late to pick us up. Seems like they forgot
Dec 2019
Disappointing way to end our time in Vietnam. This was the first company in Vietnam that wasn't on time to pick us up. We scheduled a pick up at 9:30am. At 9:35 I message the company and am asked if we can do it at 10am. Seems like they totally forgot about us and were scrambling to get some guides to us. Strange as we had booked this 3 weeks earlier via their website and had a confirmation from them via email. Eventually, one guide shows up and he seemed unaware that there were two of us. We wait some more for the next guy to finally show up. The fact that two guys showed up was also a surprise since on their website under "Why Choose Us", it states "well trained female guide". Our thought was that this company was giving opportunities to women when in the past they might not have been afforded those opportunities. My wife even says to me, "I thought we were getting female guides". The tour itself was ok. Nothing great. No great explanations of things. You don't see everything advertised on their website. We didn't see Thien Hau Temple, Ghost building, or Stilt houses in slum area on channels as described on their website. Nor was anything mentioned about these things. Also, we only visited the Thich Quang Duc Monument because I specifically said something to the guy. He then took something off the list but I can't remember what it is. This is supposed to be a 4 hour tour. In the end they were over 30 minutes late yet dropped us off more than 15 minutes early.

Dear Edward Stanley, Thanks for taking your valuable time to write the review and we appreciate every word of the review. However, we are very sad about the 2-star review. At the end of the tour, the two guides said sorry to you, two of you said thanks to them, there was no problem with the late. The guides reported that you enjoyed the tour. They even were tipped. Normally, our company returns 50% of the tour price if guests are not satisfied with our service. In this case, the guides felt that you were ok and did not offer the return. We are very sorry to not explain why we were late to you because the reason was complex and we thought you were ok. The two guides had been on another tour (a sunrise & morning food tour starting in the early morning), that tour should end before 9:30 AM and they should pick you up on time. There was a problem with the previous tour so that the guides were late. If we forgot the tour, we could not arrange two guides who come to you within 30 minutes. A half of year ago, we provided tours with all-female guides but we have changed to male and female guides. If customers prefer female guides, they usually note with us and we are happy to arrange for them. There are both male and female guides in videos and photos of the tours on our website. We are very sorry for any misunderstanding on the website, we have added "male/female guides" to the inclusion of the tour on the website so that other guests will not misunderstand. Thanks for your review so that we can improve the tour description. Our sightseeing tour's program is not very different from the program of sightseeing tour provided by most of the motorbike tour companies. "Great" or "nothing great" depends on guests' opinions. We are sorry to know that you were not satisfied with the tour route. At the beginning of a tour, our leaders introduce the programs, the guests can customize the route to meet their expectations, guests can even change the route on the tours. For example, the guide and you have discussed to visit Van Phat Pagoda instead of Thien Hau Temple. Many tours last longer than 4 hours because guests would like to see more places or spend more time at the attractions, the guides are happy to let them enjoy the places as long as guests would like. Sometimes guests would like to end the tour earlier. The tours are private and everything including tour routes, durations are flexible. We let our customers control the games. At last, we would like to say sorry to you again for everything. We will definitely improve our services and guests' experience. We wish you all the very best and happy travel in the future. Tracy Do - Manager of Scooter Saigon Tour.

Best Tourguide ever, Best tour ever
Nov 2019 • Solo
This is the best tour ever I have done. The service was really good, my tour guide Van was excellent,carring, nice and very knowledgable. It was supposed to be 4 hours but I asked m.r Binh for extending the tour (2hours). I felt time flies, I cannot amagine that we spent 6 hours together.
I will highly recommend this tour to my friends If they come VietNam.
Thank you so much for the best service

Great way to visit the Town
Jul 2019 • Couples
We hired two scooters with driver, because we didn't dare to drive by ourselves a scooter, even if I'm used to in my own town.
Drivers were wonderful and we had great indications about the landmarks and great time at the Cafe.
We can only complain about the rain, but that was not their fault!

I highly recommend this tour!!!
My three friends and I were driven around Saigon, by the best 4 girls we could have ever asked for, Hannah, Trang, Natalie and Jen.
They drove carefully, they were fun, personable and had a large amount of knowledge about this beautiful city. We were also treated to some delicious Bánh xèo in a local restaurant.
I cannot fault this tour and would recommend especially if you are new to the city/country and travelling in a group.
A huge thank you to these ladies for making our first day in Ho Cho Minh memorable!
