This tour begins with pickup at your Saigon hotel, where you don a helmet and hop on a motorbike behind a driver/guide. Weave through the morning streets as Saigon wakes up: see street sweepers moving through the city, street vendors selling breakfast to locals, and motorbikes zipping through crowded roundabouts.

Stop at Saigon highlights including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, the Saigon Central Post Office, and Independence Palace. Then visit the Nguyen Thien Thuat to see what life was like in the 1960s and today.

Continue to the biggest flower market in Saigon, where motorbikes squeeze through narrow alleys, and spot local landmarks along the way. Stop at an 80-year-old coffee shop to learn to make your own Saigonese coffee.

Then head to Binh Tay Market, in District 5, and see everything from street paintings, to book markets, and fashionable neighborhoods. See the stilt houses of the city's slums on your way to Ben Thanh Market.

This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Scooter Saigon Tour
Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short talk about the tour program and making sure you are ok on the motorbike, we weave around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see 7 districts, lots of must-see attractions, 11 markets, and many interesting things of the city. Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office. Then we drive along Independence Palace, War Remnants Museum, and Turtle Lake. Head to Thich Quang Duc Memorial where you listen to the mysterious story about the unburned heart. Then we drive to Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment building since the 1960s to learn more about the real local life which is totally different from what you see in the city center. After that, we drive to Ho Thi Ky - the biggest wholesale flower market and Cambodian market hidden in alleyways to see thousands of colorful flowers and many strange things. We stop at an 80-year coffee shop hidden in an alley to learn how to make "Vot" coffee, interact with the nice owner, enjoy a drink and chat leisurely with your guides as friends. Arriving in China Town in District 5, we visit Binh Tay Market, Thien Hau Temple and have a drive around brilliant gems including fashion street, painting street, medicine street, electronic market, fabric market, lantern market, fruit market, bird market. On the way back, we show you stilt houses in slum areas along Saigon channels. The scene reflects a sharp contrast between the poor and the rich in the city. Ben Thanh market is the last attraction in the journey. The guide returns you to the hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.

If you only have time for one tour...

If you only have time for one tour in Saigon take this one. Our guides Hanh, Huyen and Minh zipped us around on the back their motor bikes, allowing us to experience first hand the craziness that is life on the road in Saigon. Starting with the captivating surroundings of Bird coffee, we were taken around all the main sites in Saigon and a walking tour of a daily market before going for lunch at a local restaurant. It is not just the listed content of the tour that makes it enjoyable but also being able to see it with the enthusiasm and enjoyment that Hanh, Huyen and Minh provided. Without them the tour would have been well worthwhile, with their input and personalities it created an incredible memory of a vibrant city.

My partner and I loved this tour! It was our last day in Saigon but the two tour guides took us places we hadn't seen yet. Food on this tour was really good and plentiful. My advice...DO NOT EAT BREAKFAST BEFORE YOU GO! lol.... The two girls who took us on this tour were amazing! They one was Trang and unfortunately I didn't get the others name :- Both had very good English, were chatty and engaging. Great sense of humours and we all had many laughs as we were driven around. Thank you so much for making our last day in Vietnam so enjoyable!
