Best tour in Vietnam nam
, Mar 2020
This was the best tour we took in Vietnam. Long and Hanna were friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. I felt safe on the back of the bike and Long checked often if I felt comfortable. The sights were very interesting and the three food stops were very tasty. I did not feel rushed at any time. Felt more like a friend visiting than a tourist.
Best city overview you can take
, Mar 2020
Definitely the best tour to take around Saigon! It’s not a “big photographs/Instagram” tour, you spend most of it on a moped, but you see SO MUCH of the city and the tour guides are SO well informed and friendly and excited to tell you all about it! Thank you to my driver, Joyce, who answered all my questions and drove me safely through parts of the city I never would have found by myself 😃

Thank you for the feedback on the private motorbike food tour with us. It was a pleasure taking you through and showing you so many exciting places and telling you all the neighborhood stories and food cultures. Street foods are our passion and pride that we would love to show you. We still have the secret coconut ice cream and BBQ beef with local herbs for you next time.

Many thanks to Vivian, Shay, Tom & Thu - they were all very friendly and engaging and gave us a very authentic view of life in HCMC. We went to many places we wouldn’t have otherwise visited, including seeing how some people live in the city. We had some of the best Vietnamese coffee we have had all holiday, and tried jackfruit and green mango. They engaged with our two teenagers very well. Great fun and good drivers. They even added a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral when they heard we hadn’t seen it and we had finished reasonably early. Thanks guys - it was much appreciated. All in all - good value for money and well worth it.
Best tour I have done so far...

Best tour I have done so far!!! excellent service. We really enjoyed our tour morning on the back of motorbikes with three students in Saigon. They interacted with our children of 7 and 9 years old in a very personal and natural way. they showed us around the back alleys of Saigon and showed us traditional ways of drinking coffee and singing bird lover place, neighborhood, housing and off the beaten track pagoda's. They were free with their personal stories and local traditions. Thanks for the great experience Max, Tony and Dee! First we were a bit afraid about driving in Saigon but the three really took our worries away in the first 10 seconds. Our kids loved it!! we had some new friends who can recommend us the good restaurants and places to go in Saigon, they told us some Vietnamese sentence too. Loved it!!! James and Fiona.
