We had an amazing private motorbike tour with 4 English-speaking students and their motorbikes: After they picked us up at our hotel, we visited several street food locations in different districts of the city (which would be impossible to find by ourself). We enjoyed different kinds of authentic Vietnamese street food, for example a kind of filled pancake, a soup, grilled skewers, a sweet banana dish and avocado ice cream. Our amazing four guides Anh Nhan, La Xuynh, Thanh Loan and Nguyen Thien Huy told us many interesting stories around our trip and the dishes, provided us with many facts about Vietnam and daily life, but also gave us an insight into their own student life. As an example, we visited also an apartment complex to see about how ordinary people are living. This is really an absolute "must-do" while you are in Ho-Chi-Minh-City, and a great combination of motorbike adventure, food and sightseeing plus a great value for money.

Excellent tour! We were in a group of 2 and both drivers were very attentive, spoke good English and drove well. Ride despite crazy and with many motorbikes, we felt very safe. Delicious food on the stops. The only thing is that we expected there to be more different foods. Of the 6 stops, two were just for walking. And I wish I had taken the opportunity to know some other food. But just a suggestion! Thank you and I will recommend this tour to all my friends who come!!

This was an amazing experience and great way to see Vietnam from a local perspective. My guide Anna was so nice! I was nervous about scooter but after a few times I got used to it and she made me really comfortable.

We had so much fun and the food and guides Lisa and Quinton were amazing! From the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off we felt like we were with friends not guides!

good experience Daniel was my fmdriver I felt very safe with him
