Full description
Start by being picked up by your motorbike driving guide for a morning, afternoon or evening tour and get ready to discover the cultures of the Vietnamese people on the back of a motorbike, like a true local. Begin the tour visiting the venerable Thich Quang Duc Monument. Then continue to District 3, the oldest district of Saigon, where you will visit an old apartment to see the local life of Vietnamese people and their daily activities. Make a stop at a local coffee shop to enjoy a typical Vietnamese coffee or coconut. Continue to the biggest flower market in Saigon before heading to China Town in District 5 and venture around ghost buildings, a motorbike market, a pet market, an electronic market and a Chinese medicine market. Afterwards, visit a typical Chinese temple.  The tour will lead you to a floating market, a small version of the Mekong Delta in Saigon. Witness the slum areas and old mafia area in districts 4 and 7. To keep your strength, fill your stomach with a special and amazing dish. Finally, drive through the Saigon River Tunnel in District 2, the new urban area in Saigon and enjoy the spectacular scenes of District 1.  At the end of the tour, before being dropped off at your hotel, receive a special Vietnamese gift from your guide.

My family and I have travelled a lot, but this motorbike tour was by far the best tour ever. I would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Ho Chi Minh City. The exhilarating experience of driving in the extremely busy main roads and alley ways is beyond explanation. One has to experience this to understand how amazing this tour is. This tour is the best way to experience local culture. The guides have exceptional knowledge of the city which they pass on to the tourists. Visiting one of the oldest local apartment complex, drinking coffee at an 82 year old coffee shop and seeing the coffee being prepared, visiting a beautiful temple, and eating food at a local restaurant are all experiences which I wouldn't have been able to gain had it not been for this tour. To top it of, the guides/bike riders are super friendly and exceptionally cool.

AMAZING!

I had Anh as my tour guide and I can easily say it was one of the best tours I’ve ever had. She was so personable, friendly, informative, and so helpful! She even adjusted the meals to help suit my needs (vegan). I would highly recommend this tour to anyone! A bike tour itself is, in my opinion, one of the greatest ways to see Ho Chi Minh City! Not only was the tour great, but Anh also help lots of recommendations of places to go for the rest of my stay. Also, this is a great tour to do either solo or with others. Thanks again Anh :)

My mum and I took this tour from 1-5pm, we had Vincent and Danny as our guides who drove us on their motorbike. Both Vincent and Danny were amazing and knowledge, super intelligent and lots of fun! My mum was a bit nervous to be on the back of the bike but Vincent made her feel comfortable. My mum also “doesn’t do” street food yet enjoyed the local Beef Pho we had on this tour. The boys were great as was the sightseeing and history - a must do in Ho Chi Minh and our favourite part!
