Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. She took me to various restaurants and eateries on the back of her motorbike to sample Vietnamese dishes. Her riding skills and food knowledge were excellent. Highly recommend this tour.

If you must do one tour in Ho Chi Minh, look no further. It's the best way to get a wholesome feel of the city as it is personalized to your needs whether it's particular street food or sight that you are looking for. Each person has their own tour guide and rides with them on the back of the scooter, which is truly the best way to experience the city like a local. I would recommend this tour to everyone who plans to visit Saigon.

Absolutely the best we did in Saigon. The private experience is way better than a big group in our case. The guides were a delight to talk to and learn about the experience of young people in Saigon. Just loved it,,!!!!!

Highly recommended. Our tour guides were the best! Felt like we had two friends taking us around Ho Chi Minh and showing us their favourite local places. Food stop was excellent, local coffee place was amazing and riding the streets felt safe. It started to rain the girls pulled over and gave us Macs. The tour guides really made this trip, it's a great way to see the city!

The tour was very well organised, interesting and fun. Pre-tour we had good communication with the office via email to book the time of the tour despite us booking just before departure from home. They initially proposed a morning tour as it was the wet season but as we did not arrive until the afternoon, they checked the forecast and gave us a 5pm departure. Perfect for dinner time. This was all organised while we were in transit.

Our guides arrived right on time and were two young ladies who spoke good English and were very helpful and informative. They were skillful on their scooters and we felt safe despite the chaos of Ho Chi Minh city traffic.

The food places visited were good and the guides made sure our wishes such as vegetarian food or not too spicy were catered for.

Highly recommended.

A tip for big headed travelers is to request a large helmet when booking. With much effort I squeezed the supplied helmet over my oversize noggin but it was uncomfortable.

We were picked up by Ms. Trang and Ms. Huyen at our hotel. Looking at their little motorcycles, it was a bit daunting to think we were going to ride around on the back through the insane traffic of Ho Chi Minh City. But I had complete trust in them and it turned out that riding in the streets and alleyways was one of the most memorable experiences of our trip, and we were never nervous about getting into an accident.
We went to a huge outdoor market selling everything from fruit to live ducks and birds to pigs feet. Our guide walked us through and selected some fruit for us to taste later. We stopped at a noodle shop for an early lunch, where Trang I hope I'm getting her name right! carefully explained the ingredients. It was very good.
Our tour was interrupted by a heavy downpour, and Trang offered to send us back to the hotel by taxi, and to continue the tour on another day, which we did. We went to a few sites including the Post Office and the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Opera House and Independence Palace just quick looks at the latter three from outside. We were also taken to an old temple, and to a restaurant for a Vietnamese pancake, which was very good.
Both Trang and Huyen were very friendly and knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable with them. They took pictures throughout the tour and sent them to us quickly. It was a fun way to get a look at everyday life in a Vietnamese city.

We had a great trip around the city, and really enjoyed our guides Trang and Suong. Knowledgeable and funny guides, showed us so many districts and we got behind the scenes to se how clay pot coffee is made. Fantastic all around.

Amazing - we were taken out by Hang and Loi who had exception knowledge of Ho Chi Minh City. We saw so much with them that we never would have seen before. Their driving and navigating through the thousands of mopeds was commendable and we felt safe the entire time. This trip was very good value for money and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting. We had alredy spent 4 days in the city before the tour, and couldn't believe how much more there was to see! Thank you for a very memorable evening!

A sensational experience. Very friendly, professional and attentive guides in Trang and Hana. Punctual in pick up and great choices in the food that we ate. Would not look elsewhere if you are choosing to tour around HCMC

Had an amazing experience with Hana and Hue. They picked us up as requested and gracious and charming while they wissed us around the city on scooters, seeing the sights and eating in various sites. We had a limited time as we were flying out that night and they even dropped us off at the airport. Strongly recommended

We walked off our cruise ship and there they were: Trang, Suong and Hang, full of smiles, motor scooters at the ready. After a brief discussion of what we had already seen in Saigon, we decided on an itinerary and were off, my husband, son 20 years old and myself. All three of our delightful drivers managed the intimidating Saigon traffic with ease while conversing with and explaining the passing streetscape to us. We, as passengers, soon learned to relax and leave the driving to these very capable young women, and focus on the amazing street tableaux we were passing through. One of our first stops was the oldest cafe in Saigon where we each got to sample Bahn My and the delicious local clay pot coffee. Then we actually got a behind the scenes tour and were able to help make the coffee! We went to a number of different markets that focused on various things: flowers, produce and seafood. Any food we expressed interest in trying was soon in our hands, peeled, or otherwise ready to sample. Our tour finished with a delicious lunch in a restaurant filled with locals, no tourists in sight but us! Would highly recommend our guides and this tour. Viator streamlined the booking for us, talking at least twice with the vendor to make sure we would be met at the cruise dock and that our timing needs would be honored. Could not be happier with the organization and the tour. A must if you are even slightly adventurous and a foodie!

We had 2 lovely girls, Hannah and Nancy, take us on our tours of Saigon, they were fantastic, helpful, funny and full of information and knowledge about the city. Had some great street food, and a fantastic time. Couldn't have asked for better guides. Thanks Hammah and Nancy.

You have to do this tour. Nothing like seeing Ho Chi Minh from the back of a scooter. If you have not seen the chaos of scooters in HCM before, you cannot understand how cool this tour is. Highly recommend

This tour was the highlight of our Ho Chi Minh trip!! Our guides were AMAZING and really knowledgeable. What we enjoyed most about the tour was how customizable it was. We told our guides we didn't want to focus on the history and instead see the local way of life so they took us to a ton of little markets where they got us to try a lot of interesting foods. The lunch at the end was also delicious and we learned how to eat a lot of typical Vietnamese dishes.

Even one star is too much for this tour ! The tour guid Nancy has no clue what is she suppose to do add to it her lack of information and ignorance about the history of her own country and the places included in the tour. I am a university professor and know if the students are prepared or know their material and this girl definitely was not prepared. The tour company should higher a professional tour guide and not a girl who knows how to drive a scooter only ! Dont waist your money and find another tour ....very disappointed !!
