Thank you Thom and Joyce and Th for the fun and interesting tour of Saigon food and culture. Our memories of our last night in Vietnam spent with you are precious. 3 grandmas on the back of your motorbikes and you were respectful and kind to us and took good care of us. We will defiantly do it again! Only wish I could find that delicious food here but guess we need to return to Vietnam and the beautiful people. Thanks again

We loved exploring the back alleys of Saigon on motorbikes with our local guides. We were able to try dishes we wouldn't have found on our own, everything tasted wonderful and just as we expected. We enjoyed learning more about the city straight from locals themselves. The experience felt customized just for us and was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Our guide, Oliver picked us up and we were taken to our starting point in a taxi. excellent English, knowledgeable, passionate and obviously well known to the locals. The food was tasty and varied. mixed in with the locals. Our stops were in various locations, and Oliver provided background information and took us along back streets which showed us some of the customs and local activities and gave us historical information. The food was great - an all round worthwhile experience!

On our second visit to HCMC my husband and I wanted to do something different - and this trip certainly ticked all the boxes! Tomm and Navie were our perfect guides - safe drivers, interesting, humorous and genuinely nice people. We had a thoroughly enjoyable morning and it was excellent value for money.
