Young, fun and very knowledgeable about what you need to know when in HCMC. The tour in itself is nothing you can experience in a DIY -- which I always go for most of the time, because it is designed to be very local which makes the whole thing so much more memorable. Jake and the whole team, thank you!... More

This is a 'must-do' for anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh who is interested in their food, and also experiencing the city at night where the friendly motorbike drivers take you through many trendy districts, with buzzing night life, and street restaurants everywhere. They explain the food and you sit with the locals literally down on small seats and in the... More

We took the afternoon food tour with our lovely guides who were super friendly and had lots of interesting info to share. The food was amazing and we saw parts of HCM we would have never experienced otherwise. We missed out on having a photo with our photographer for the day! Thanks to him, we have some great photos of... More

I did a solo street food tour at night. The food was knock-your-socks-off good, but my guide was super informative about HCMC and Vietnamese culture in general. I learned more during this one evening than in my previous 2 weeks in Vietnam.

We saw the whole city on the Street Food tour. What an adventure! We had an absolute blast! We always felt safe and secure, even in crazy traffic- These drivers are really cautious and careful with us on the back! The food was amazing! We were very happy with every stop on the tour. My guide/driver, Trang, was wonderful! She... More

What a great experience from start to finish. We were met at our hotel by 2 young guides who had near perfect English and smiley faces. They took us to meet the other 2 tourists doing the tour - on the back of their scooters - exhilarating but never felt unsafe. What followed was an informative 4hr trek across the... More

We booked the Street Food tour at the last minute after failing to get a spot with two other companies - and were lucky we ended up on this one! Right from the start, the website was specific about where you would go and what you would eat, so no (unpleasant) surprises. There were also only 5 stops, in the... More

Our guides V and Daisy were fantastic. We had such a good time with them and can't thank them enough for showing us the best parts of Ho Chi Minh city - it was truly the highlight of the whole trip. Would definitely recommend to all travellers.

Thank you Back of the Bike Tours for providing one of the best food tours of our SE Asia trip! While I would have never done it alone, I loved riding on the back of the motorbike with a designated tour guide from stop to stop. Also enjoyed the diversity of stops (street food, restaurants, dessert bars and more). This... More
