This is the most exciting way to see the city. One of our group used the specially adapted scooter for disabled which enabled him to enjoy this unique experience. All the buddies were very friendly and infomative and the driver of the adapted vehicle was very professional. Many thanks Saigon buddies you made our trip.

There are lots of tours in Ho Chi Minh City, but the Saigon Buddy city tour is a perfect introduction to the city. You sit on the back of a scooter, and the driver takes you on a four-hour tour of various neighborhoods. My friend booked us and she rode with Will, I rode with D. They're nice guys, very smart about the city and were great company. The tour hit highlights like Notre Dame Cathedral, a large marketplace, a gorgeous Buddhist temple, etc. But we also had pauses, like a stop to sample Vietnamese coffe, then a visit in the park to sit and sip lemon tea, and talk about the lifestyle and people of HCM City. And a key part of the fun is riding on the back of that motorbike. Traffic in this city seems to have no rules. But D and Will expertly maneuvered the crazy mix of cars, pedestrians and other scooters. There were a few hairy moments, but that's part of the fun. Don't let the idea of a scooter tour scare you; I'm retirement age and the biggest wuss around, and I loved every minute. So first recommendation: Take this tour. Second tip: Wear sunscreen. Other than that, put yourself in their hands and have a blast.

Loved this tour, we did the beer tasting tour on the back of scooters driven by uni students/tour guides. I was slightly scared (or was it exhilarated) at first given the peak hour traffic but after the first stop got a bit more accustomed to the traffic (or it might have just been the beer???). Either way had a great experience, they offer others tours as well, highly recommend.

Saigon Buddy was the only operator to accommodate our group of 10. The guides arrived as scheduled, and were proficient with English. They presented themselves well (in the green uniform and helmets) and were friendly and knowledgeable. The guides on the day provided us with a lot of flexibility in terms of what was scheduled (they allowed us to remove certain stops along the way to fit in with our schedule and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable with the itinerary and what we wanted to do).
