Full description

Discover the busy nightlife and local foods of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) on a guided tour by motorbike. Ride along Nguyen Trai Street, visit the area's largest flower market for grilled oysters, and savor an authentic Vietnamese pancake. Following pickup, start the evening with condensed milk coffee at a special place. After that, stop to enjoy baked banana cake wrapped in glutinous rice served with coconut sauce.

Go through the area and explore a typical night of residents while learning how history has shaped this place. Discover how the street food here is diverse since people in the area come from many places with different tastes.

The next destination is the biggest flower market of the city, located in district 10. Taste grilled oysters with black pepper sauce and quail eggs. Try rice paper with onion, eggs, baby shrimp, and a special local sauce.

Flowers sold at the market are collected from every part of Vietnam so you can easily buy any kind of flowers from around Vietnam and enjoy the sweet smell and the beauty of them.

Arriving in district 5, stop for a few minutes to eat Vietnamese pancakes, usually eaten with a wide range of vegetables. Back to the tour, venture to Nguyen Trai Street, a busy street where almost everything is sold, from clothes to souvenirs.

After that, on Nguyen Van Cu Bridge, take in a whole view of the city in the glow of night. Enjoy a peaceful moment while looking at Saigon River with fresh, cool air breezing by.

Continue to district 4, regarded as the smallest district. Many people from other places in Vietnam move to live here, so the lifestyle and traditions of the residents are extremely varied there.

On the way we go there, stop at the local bread vendor to enjoy one of the city's best banh mi (thin and crispy baguette). Before drop-off back at your hotel, drink sugar cane juice and have a dessert like a tropical fruit smoothie or caramel flan.

I was in the city and wondering what the best way to see all parts of the city was and this was definitely it! We saw many sides of the city including District 1, China town and District 7 and more. My driver Jack was very friendly and all the guides that were with us were also very helpful and taught us a lot about the city and the culture. I would definitely recommend for anyone visiting the city, it was a lot of fun!

I totally recommend this tour. It was fun, delicious safe and a great activity for the a night with friends or your partner or your family. We enjoyed the food a lot, it was more than enough. Dominik and Brian are great motorcycle drivers, we felt very safe. both guides are very passionate about the city and food, they gave us some recommendations about what to do next days, and were very flexible with our food preferences as well. Thank you very much for making our first night in Ho Chi Minh so great.

I landed in Ho Chi Mingh, got to the hotel and booked this very easily on the app. Within an hour, Rick came and picked me up direct from my hotel. When I saw the moped just KNEW this was going to be the best activity ever. 1. Rick and Lilly They are amazing tour guides. They speaking high level English and have a never ending passion for their city (with an abundance of knowledge of Vietnamese history). The best thing about Rick and Lilly is that that they are amazing fun and we spent most of the food tour laughing. 2. The food This food was outstanding, creative and yummy!!! I think it’s the best way to get to know a place. Rick and Lilly did a fantastic job picking the best spots to eat. Also you will never leave hungry. 3. The bikes I had so much fun being driven around the city at night. It was freeing… and the best way to see the city! Thank you Rick and Lilly - highly recommend and will definitely come back because of you!
