Full description
Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) is the largest city in Vietnam. Now over 300 years old, the metropolis was once known as the 'Pearl of the Far East' and is filled with numerous historical artifacts and cultural cross-overs both old and new.

With the help of your English-speaking tour guides, it’s time to uncover the real Saigon. Come see what the city’s youngsters do in their spare time, learn how religion affects Vietnamese culture, and hear what makes each of Saigon’s many districts unique. But it’s not just about the destinations, but also the journey, on what's sure to be a highly memorable tour. All of your questions will be answered as you explore Saigon, traveling on the back of the motorbike, just like a local.

Starting at 8:30 AM or 12:30 PM, your guide will collect you from your hotel and the tour will begin. A short drive takes you back in time to the Tomb of Le Van Duyet, a local southern hero from the 19th century. Next, hear the legend of the Saigon Dragon and learn about the city’s many underground secrets as you head towards China Town and one of the most beautiful churches in the city. Check out one of Saigon’s biggest fabric markets, visit a neighborhood most tourists will miss, learn about the Hoa ethnic culture, then grab a snack and a traditional iced coffee (or tea) before heading home.
