Hi fellow explorers, I have just got back from a 3 day tour of The Mekong River with Tam. I am writing this review to tell you to go, make your own memories as word can not even begin to explain how amazing this trip was! I had many firsts from red mouthwatering locally grown dragon fruit, to first class dining service on the Mekong River. I experienced crossing canals and rivers that are only accessible by bike and tasted home grown fruits and delicious home cooked meals at a fabulous homestay, which infact has been the best sleep yet in Vietnam! The selection and variety of food has been outstanding and the service from Tam has been professional, very inforamative, safe riding skills and I have been treated like royalty. I was that impressed with his service (especially seen as I am a female traveling solo) that I have booked two more tours with his company. I fully recommend booking yourself a tour or two and making your own memories 💜

So, I was conned into this trip by my traveling partner. I was apprehensive to say the least. Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel at 8am. We were ushered into a taxi and off we went. We stopped at a local cafe for a coffee and trip briefing. This is the part that didn't put my nerves at ease. Our guide stated that if, we are stopped by the local police play dumb and don't attempt to engage in conversation with them. In the incident that this happens he said he will keep riding and wait for us down the road.... The staff drop the scooters off one by one. On this occasion they deliver a black one, a little worse for wear. It looked like it had been dropped and slid across the road in its side. At this point I had a nice shiny red one when the guide asked for me to swap for the black one he ended up with. Ahhh no thanks I'll keep this red one. Soon after a phone call is made and another staffer arrives and drops off another scooter. Would he have gone to as much effort if that were my scooter? Who knows.... After a brief safety briefing and rough helmet fitting. We're off and racing, quiet literally racing through the busy Ho Chi Minh streets. After about 20 minutes we arrive to refuel. I would think this would be done prior to the tour but hey, whatever. At this point you'll get a stern warning about not beeping your horn enough and leaving the indicator on. I don't see how this matters as none of the other road rules do. After refueling were back into it. I have to admit that it is easier then it looks and we didn't have any issues regarding the traffic. We ride for about an hour and a half where we stop for "lunch" at a dragon fruit farm/roadside stall. I don't much like dragon fruit but the guide insisted. We seemed to have spent 30 minutes here whilst the guide jibbered to the locals and we stood around. If you're not into dragon fruit like me it'll seem boring. After this we leave and head along a back road which is hardly fit for a WRF450 (Google it) let alone a scooter. After a while of looking at countless dragon fruit trees and Poorly constructed buildings we arrive at a town. The traffic here is busy and harder to navigate the Ho Chi Minh. We continue on and make another pit stop for some more local food. A pancake fish with Devon and cheese - not bad. After this 30 minute stop we continue to a boat ramp and catch a ferry to the other side of the river. We continue riding and riding and riding. We ride another 20 Minutes and catch another boat. Your butt will be sore by this point and your neck and arms will be sun burnt. Further down the road we turn down a concrete foot path. At this point the guide disappears he must of had to poo because he left us for dead. We meander down the road dodging locals on bicycles. Soon after we see the guides scooter parked at a cafe. The road in is slippery and wet. I almost ended up in a canal - you'll see. At this point the guide seems to spend more time on his phone then he does interacting with us. We stop here for big lunch and a "relax" for a very long time. Then we get on a row boat with a 100 year old man whose rowing the boat crashing into the coconut trees on the bank and doesn't speak a word of English. After about 200 meters we turn around and head back. As we get back a cranky local yells "hey you pay him" wtf for? Any ways the guide sorts that mess out. After another hour or so we're back into it. Riding and riding. The scenery has changed and you're now looking at rice paddies. We eventually arrive at some town near Ben Tre and for some reason we spend 10 minutes sitting on the side of a 8 lane dual carriage way whilst the guide dicks around with his go pro. Time and place? After navigating the busy highway we continue on and on and on until we reach Ben Tre. This place is not really worth your while. There are no westerners and the locals do not speak English - thank god for google translate. You will find it difficult to get something remotely eatable and the locals don't have much time for you. We arrive at the hotel where the guide checks you in, this is where you're left to your own devices and no helpful hints or beginners tips on what to do with your afternoon. There is nothing to do at the hotel except drink coffee and watch the boats on the river. The next day we head back to Ho Chi Minh. By this time I find out Ho Chi Minh is only 80 kilometers away. The guide suggests we leave at 9.30. This didn't suit me so we suggest 8 in an attempt trying to beat the heat. After 20 minutes from leaving we go to the honey farm and sample the honey tea. Which is basically tea with honey. The locals then try and push their merchandise on you. No thanks we have honey at home. They stand there awkwardly until they get the point. We leave soon after and head down a road dodging horse and carts. I was kidding myself complaining about the conditions of the road on the way there. The roads on the way back - much much rougher. Compounded by the racing slicks fitted to your scooter. After a few hours we stop for coffee at a road side cafe' (use that term lightly.) After 30-45 minutes we're back into it. After another 3 hours of rice paddies and dodging cars and trucks on back roads we arrive at a restaurant for lunch. The guide suggests we stay for a couple of hours. Ahhh no thanks we can check into our hotel in 20 minutes. So with some encouragement the guide is ready. Again that lunch must have gone straight through him because he left us for dead. Racing in and out of traffic. 60 kays an hour through Ho Chi Minh traffic in the wet - not cool man. Any ways after another 45 minutes or so we're back to where we started. - Thank God! We hop off the scooters and ninjas come from no where and your scooter is gone. Well done you survived a scooter tour in Vietnam. Definitely give this tour a go. It might be for you but it wasn't for me.

We just arrived in Hoian after a 7 day motorcycle tour from Saigon with Cong.. What can I say.. It was an amazing experience. We visited so many interesting sights.. From waterfalls to battle sites to coffee plantations. Cong was such a gentleman and helped us with anything we needed along the way. He even took us to meet his family and have a look through his house and around his fruit orchard. The highlight of the trip for us was getting to meet 2 different hill tribes and giving candy to there lovely children, what an experience! Another part of the adventure we loved was that meals and drinks were all included in the price so we just sat back and had Cong order delicious local cuisine for us 3 times a day.. And as a chef I wanted to experience the real Vietnam food and we definitely got that experience and more! We highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the real Vietnam that you won't see on a tour bus, train or plane. Price wise it is middle of the range, you may find a cheaper Easyrider tour but this doesn't include food, drinks etc so we felt that the extra 30-40$ was worth while spending. The owner Tum was so easy to deal with from the first contact. He took me shoe shopping for size 12 shoes and he even took us out for dinner the night before our tour started and paid! Thank you so much Tum and Cong for an amazing experience we will never forget! Aidan & Casey; Kati kati; New Zealand

What can I say: Found this company via TripAdvisor & Facebook & emailed Tam directly with a whole pile of questions of which at every juncture he responded promptly to me with full answers to my questions. Initially I paid a deposit of a 1/3 of the total price by bank transfer, I was a little uneasy with this as most things this way don't turn out the way expected but I was completely wrong & happily paid the balance in full on arrival in Ho Chi Minh City when i first met Tam in the flesh. (Word of advice just take $USD with you its easier than withdrawing from a Vietnamese bank). Tam helped me arrange my VISA prior to arrival, met up the day before thee trip started & took me out for lunch & drinks, listen to what I wanted to experience & achieve as opposed to the set itinerary & sent me out with an outstanding guide for a 9 day trip from Ho Chi Minh City to Hue via Da Lat & The Central Highlands. My guide Thanh was brilliant, the bike a 175cc Honda was just the job for the trip, a little bigger than what most locals use but ideal for a not so small westerner 7 baggage. The day of the trip Tam came personally toy hotel to pick me up by taxi to take me to a cafe where I met up with my guide, he offered quality protective equipment although I brought my own. He also booked me a flight internally to Hanoi for my next leg after the road trip. I can only say my whole experience of dealings with Tam & Vietnam Motorcycle Tours, was prompt, professional, personal & made the whole trip effortless. Certainly get my vote & recommendation regardless of the type of adventure you wish to partake in, day trips, must-day trips are all within his remit. Thank you Tam for your perseverance of my relentless emails, booking what I can only describe one of life brilliants adventures & I look forward to meeting you again & doing the Mekong Delta.
