There’s no better way to get into the swing of Saigon than riding a motorbike. Enjoy the immediacy of scooter travel without the self-driving risks on this private guided foodie adventure. Pull up a kindergarten chair and channel Anthony Bourdain as you sample eight separate tastings at a range of street eateries. Savor city signatures from beer to banh mi sandwiches and curios such as sweet soup and barbecued scallops.

See Ho Chi Minh City through the eyes of local students during a sightseeing tour with a difference. Rather than traveling by coach or car, you’ll avoid traffic as you explore on the back of a motorbike, which grants you access to places that larger vehicles can’t reach. Plus, you’ll benefit from the insider knowledge of your student guide and receive tailored recommendations to maximize your trip.

Get to know Ho Chi Minh City like a local rather than a tourist during a private tour by motorbike. Unlike typical tours, this option allows you to customize your itinerary to include only the places that peak your interest. Plus, traveling on the back of a motorbike allows you to weave in and out of traffic and to access places that cars and coaches cannot.

We had a great time, enjoyed local dishes and our guides Main & Beat were amazing, very friendly and knowledgeable. Must do in HCMC, not only to try the local food but to experience the city by driving around in a motorbike.

Very fun being driven round HCMC by moped and great to experience some of the authentic local Vietnamese food that I probably wouldn’t have known about had I not done the tour. The tour guides were really friendly and great to chat to
