If you are still considering about this tour, BOOK IT NOW ! We booked a motorbike sightseeing tour with Saigon Adventure. We were so happy and enjoy the tour that we continued to book this Motorbike night tour. And let me tell you this is the best way to get to know the city and enjoy the best street food. We went to a Sky Bar to have wonderful view for sunset with a beer included ( we were lucky with the weather). The food was so great and this was my best food i tried during 2 week trip in Vietnam. This is an eye-opening trip. Quy was the best guide in our 2 week Vietnam trip and i am sure other guides in this company are also great. We saw them during the tour with other groups. 3 guys spoke so good english and answered all of my questions. I was impressed about the story of the monk who set himself on fire during Vietnam War. We love this tour so much so we decided to book with them also Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong tour for next day. BOOK THIS TOUR, YOUR WILL NOT REGRET !

Excellent 5 stars service with very affordable price. Our Tour Guide Patrick , he is very friendly and he is very professional, knowledgeable and speak well in English. Another Tour guide Lam is nice and funny & well entertained us. We had a lot of fun during the tour. We felt more like going out with close friends than tourists and tour guides. Firstly they took us to a rooftop bar so we can see the beautiful view of the city and have a beer on the rooftop bar. We spent there about 30 minutes, then start the street food and city night tour. Our first stop for food is BUN BO HUE - the best noodle soup i have ever tried in my life, Then my highlight of the trip was Flower market and the hidden street food area behind ( Cambodian market). I love the Banana crispy and "Saigon Pizza". Overall, this is the best way to see the city by motorbike. Definitely i will book this tour again when i come back. And highly recommend for everyone coming to Saigon.

BEST TOUR EVER ! BEST TOUR GUIDES ! 6 STARS SERVICES ! I will definitely recommend this tour. Such a great experience of Saigon at night. I booked this tour on my first day to HCMC. The operator contact me on whatsapp to confirm the pick up ( So nice of him since this is my first time to Vietnam) . Tony was my tour guide. I can see he love his job so much and always keep the tour so much fun. He is very knowledgable and passionate about the people, culture, and history of the places. I learned a lot about the places we visited. I made new friend after the tour. The food were great and delicious! I love to be away from the tourist area and go to hidden alley to know more about local life. And from the bottom of heart, i’ll definitely recommend this tour & Tony to all the people who has interest visiting Saigon !

This is one of the best tour we have done for many years. I wish i could do this tour on the first day in Saigon. Joining the traffic in Saigon on a scooter is the best way to see the city. My tour guide was Tony. He is so friendly and knowledgeable. He knew everything about the city and took us to the best hidden gems of the city. We tried different food and had a great conversation with him about culture , cuisine. He even show us a lot of tips for our next days in Saigon. Highly recommend to book this tour for a great time in Saigon. I will definitely recommend this tour to all my friends coming to Vietnam. Thank you so much and good luck to you , Tony and the team.
