We went on the Saigon after Dark Tour just before New Year's Eve,so the Xmas decorations were still in place turning the streets into a vast fairground in the middle of a Formula One racetrack!!! We had a very welcome cocktail at the company's street bar and then moved on to experience street food like no other!!!
We went to at least 3 different venues all with exceptionally different and delicious traditional food. After that we were taken to a very old coffee shop,tucked away in a district you would never go to by yourself as a tourist,here we had more cocktails or indeed coffee if you wished,listening to local singers practising their repetoires.Finally ending up at the company's cocktail bar to be greeted by the American owner who offered us another delicious cocktail and hoped we had had a good time!!! How not to,very good value for money and a very very very unusual way to see Saigon at night.
By the way,they do give you a helmet to wear which is a comfort!!! The drivers are very experienced and everyone managed to get back to their hotel safely.

Glad I booked the tour after being waitlisted by XO foodie tour and recommended by them. Love that Saigon After Dark tour isn't just a food tour but you get to visit a really cool, unassuming coffee house with great ambiance to listen to the singing of amazing local talent accompanied by a violinist and pianist and later in the evening visit the top club in Siagon for live, classic rock entertainment!!! Didn't expect that at all. Riding the Vespa through the streets of Saigon at night is an adventure. The drivers are experts and not once do you feel unsafe amidst the pack of motorcycles.... even for mommy me. The food stops were also incredibly good. Loved the seafood and banh xeo! The tour ended at 10:30 pm and this worked great as our flight out of HCM was at 1 am. Will do this tour again in a heartbeat and wish every destination had a Vespa tour!

I almost feel like this review is superfluous, seeing all the others on here.

We took the "Saigon After Dark" tour and had a wonderful time. It was one of the most memorable tours I have ever been on.

The food was excellent - and not at places the casual tourist would ever stumble onto.

The guides were wonderful and truly engaged with us.

All that, and seeing Saigon by night on the back of a vintage Vespa? It was a perfect night. Thanks so much to Vietnam Vespa Adventures for giving us this experience.

I really recommend me this to anyone who is spending a couple of days in Ho Chi Minh City. It is the only way to see the city! Also the drivers and guide were very friendly.

The Vespa food tour was the highlight of my stay in Ho Chi Minh, The guide was super friendly and open to conversation, the food was AMAZING and the places they took us to we would have never found without them. You truly get a taste of the Vietnamese/Ho Chi Minh vibe. A must do!!
