My wife and I are adventurous 50 somethings and the 'Foodie tour' that we did was a real highlight of our recent trip to Vietnam. Having never ridden a motorbike before we were a little apprehensive about choosing Vietnam as our first try. We need not have worried, we both felt really safe in the hands of our drivers and loved the cooling breeze and traffic dodging.
Our safari included a couple of dishes in a family home (a highlight); a chance to make and eat our own shrimp dishes at a local specialist restaurant, eat pancakes and pork skewers in one of Hue's most famous and buzzing pancake restaurants and spend some time with a herbalist, drink some rice wine and have a quick health check....Our guide and drivers also accommodated our request to drive by the Citadel at night for some photos. First class tour!

Thank Skydom

We loved every minute of our 'safari'... from the outset, our guide was warm, welcoming and really very enthusiastic.... the riders were also very smiling and seemed genuinely happy to be on the tour..

Our kids loved every minute, the food was amazing (although the shrimp is not for the feint-hearted) and we felt safe at all times.... It's an amazing way to see and experience Hue; particularly at night...

One small point, I think if you are a large party, not everybody will have a Vespa- but a minor point.. unless you are a real bike enthusiast, it doesn't diminish the experience...

I would urge anybody to experience this safari and highly recommend this amazing and innovative tour in Hue.

What a lovely way to get around Hue and surroundings. Very safe and yet certainly not dull with an "aperitif with a view" to top it of. This has been a highlight of our holidays and we very much recommend anyone visiting to do the same.

We had booked 2 tours in advance of our trip to Hue, one on each day of our stay. Each one was wonderful and memorable and we felt very well looked after by our guide Hoang and the drivers. Our first tour was 'Twilight Over The Perfume River' which was a magical and beautiful experience and our second was 'Twilight Foodie Delight' which in spite of the rain was fascinating and informative from the first stop at the home of a lovely couple to the last stop at a herbalist.
Mr Tu the manager worked hard to ensure that everything went smoothly and we cannot recommend Vespa Safari highly enough.

Having no idea about this tour was all about, we were met by a very nice guide, Tu, who along with two nice drivers took us riding in Hue. The tour was great at many levels: First, it was a lot of fun to sit on the back of the Vespa and experience the city life from this seat. Second, it was so nice to meet people in their own homes. Although we understand that this is an organized tour that they do over and over again, they all made us feel very special and welcomed. Third, eating and even preparing some of the food, felt like an additional fine way to get to know the culture of Hue. All in all - we had a really good time together with very nice people :-)

If you do nothing else in Hue do this Vespa safari. An evening zipping around Hue on a vintage Vespa experiencing the scooter madness. You will be taken to a Vietnamese home where they have cooked some dishes for you and spend time learning about their family life. Then one where you Experience making your own, a street restaurant to eat crispy pancakes and pork on lemon grass stalks and finally a herbalist doctor. Always felt safe, food delish, great fun, do it!

We were meant to enjoy cocktails overviewing the perfume river, but due to the wet weather, this was no longer suitable. These guys quickly came up with a plan b and organised us to visit a local family's home for afternoon tea instead. Visiting the local family actually turned out to be a highlight of the trip for me. They were more then inviting and the food was delicious. Everything was perfectly organised and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Neither one of us are scooter riders. Our guide/drivers were always looking at for our safety and if you have tried to cross a street in Vietnam you know what our concerns were. The Vespas were well maintained and comfortable. The countryside tour took us to areas, markets and people's home that you would never see or experience otherwise. The food tour was also the same eating and experiencing local fare, and in some cases interactive. The guides were well informed and taught us a lot about Hue and history/culture, besides being just great fun guys. So JUST DO IT on your next trip to Hue! Aloha

We had an Twilight foodie delight for 4 hours. It was great! It's a perfect way to experience Vietnamese culture and lifestyle! We visited two very nice families and tasted their lokal food which was very good. We recommended Vespa Safari!
