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.

It was a good experience. Asher is very knowledgeable and friendly. Only downside was the condition of the bike as I felt that the brakes might fail as it was in need of a desperate service. Took me around the city, and was very accommodating with requests. Recommend him !

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.
