“Fantastic sights, smells and sounds.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I booked a motorbike tour for my husband and myself. We wanted to see the other side of Saigon that tourist don't usually see. It was great to sit on the back of a bike and travel down lanes and alleys. Totally different side of the city than what we would have seen by ourselves. The drivers were great, from the moment we met them in the hotel until they dropped us off 5 hrs later. We had a great lunch and really enjoyed the motorbike experience. If you are in Saigon I would recommend you contact Adam and book the tour.

“Get in the flow of Saigon”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I took the Saigon Unseen Urban Kaos Moto Tour. This was a great way to experience a big chunk of the city through the eyes of a local. My driver Mr. Sau was consistently personable and informative. I always felt that I was in capable hands, even in the occasionally chaotic traffic. Rather than being jaded by visitors, he was genuinely interested in conversation. Thank you for arranging a very memorable, fun city tour.

“Fantastic Experience - Thanks Adam”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I chose to do the walk and talk tour of Saigon, being first time visitors to Saigon it was a great introduction to the city. Adam showed us places that we would have never gone to by ourselves, this was all done in a very calm and friendly manner. Thanks Adam for showing us your neighbourhood and treating us like friends - next time we are in Saigon we will do your motorbike tour.

“You Have to Do It!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This tour is amazing. I am in my late 50's and everybody laughed at my husband and I doing this tour but we had a ball! Our guides were very friendly and took us all around Saigon. So funny watching Sau with my husband hanging off the back of the motorbike with his camera taking photos.Certainly went to places that you would not expect to visit, like local markets, motorbike market etc. Sau took us to a vegetarian restaurant for lunch with was absolutely delicious. Can't say enough nice things about this tour. This is a tour for all ages. Wish it was around in every city!Excellent value for money Don't think about it just do it. !!!
