Amazing Tour Guide - Best Tour Ever ! My tour guide for this motorbike was Quy. I was a bit worry about the traffic , but it turned out to be the best tour in my 3 week travelling in Vietnam. Quy's english is perfect! He was so friendly and knowledgeable. The highlight of the trip is driving part to Chinatown. We went to back alley, Small local market , enoy a cold drink at the market.

Our guides were so friendly, we felt safe on their bikes and we had such a great day discovering the must do of the city but also places we would never have went without them ! I highly recommend this tour to anyone to get a first glimpse of the city and the highlight of our afternoon was without any doubt, to get to spend some time with our very knowledgeable guides ! Great atmosphere and a lot of fun ! Thanks again guys

The trip was excellent from start to finish. Our guide Mr. Fa was very nice and provided loads of interesting information about all the locations visited. We might have been “lucky” with our timing, as no parts of the trip were crowded. The lunch was great as well, maybe enhanced a bit by the great location. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

Excellent value. Much cheaper than the competition. Excellent choice of restaurants for the adventure. Guides Will and Yen were truly fantastic. Have nothing negative to say at all. Just great!

Very nice day trip. Our guide Betty did a great job making sure everyone had fun. Highly recommended!
