After being picked up from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel by your private guide, hop on the back of a scooter for a thrilling tour of the city’s neighborhoods.

First, zip around the monuments of downtown Ho Chi Minh City and stop to snap photos of landmarks such as the Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Independence Palace. Jump off to soak up the atmosphere of the lively Ben Thanh or Binh Tay markets, take a peek at the colorful Ho Thi Ky flower market, and marvel at the imposing Bitexco Tower, the city’s tallest skyscraper.

Continue through vibrant Chinatown as your guide tells stories of Ho Chi Minh City’s fascinating history and heritage, from its stint as the colonial capital of Saigon to the war years and the ‘Fall of Saigon’, and its subsequent rebirth as Ho Chi Minh City.

Finally, get a taste of local life as you take a detour through one of the city’s most affluent neighborhoods, then explore the traditional stilt houses of District 8, dotted along the Saigon riverside.

After taking in the city’s varied highlights, your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

Scooter Saigon Tour
Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short talk about the tour program and making sure you are ok on the motorbike, we weave around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see 7 districts, lots of must-see attractions, 11 markets, and many interesting things of the city. Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions in District 1 including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office. Then we drive along Independence Palace, War Remnants Museum, and Turtle Lake. Head to Thich Quang Duc Memorial where you listen to the mysterious story about the unburned heart. Then we drive to Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment building since the 1960s to learn more about the real local life which is totally different from what you see in the city center. After that, we drive to Ho Thi Ky - the biggest wholesale flower market and Cambodian market hidden in alleyways to see thousands of colorful flowers and many strange things. We stop at an 80-year coffee shop hidden in an alley to learn how to make "Vot" coffee, interact with the nice owner, enjoy a drink and chat leisurely with your guides as friends. Arriving in China Town in District 5, we visit Binh Tay Market, Thien Hau Temple and have a drive around brilliant gems including fashion street, painting street, medicine street, electronic market, fabric market, lantern market, fruit market, bird market. On the way back, we show you stilt houses in slum areas along Saigon channels. The scene reflects a sharp contrast between the poor and the rich in the city. Ben Thanh market is the last attraction in the journey. On the way, we stop for a light meal. We have some options for you: Beef noodle soup or Top 3 Banh mi in Saigon or Steamed sticky rice. The guide returns you to the hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.

A great experience with wonderful tour guides. With the flexibility to stay a little longer at the places that were of personal interest and less time at others. A little bit of insight into to the city in a short amount of time and a whole lot of fun.

This was a wonderful way to see the city in a limited time allotment. Trang and Nikki were our scooter guides and were gracious hosts as well as skilful drivers. We saw local markets, back alleys, the riverside houses, buildings from pre-war Saigon, plus had the best Vietnamese coffee ever and a taste of street side cuisine. I highly recommend this tour to everyone including those who feel they are too old to do this. My girlfriend and I are both over 60 and we were hesitant at first, but boy are we glad we did this! Definitely a highlight of our visit to Vietnam! My only suggestion is that you wear a surgical mask while riding since the fumes of hundreds of motorbikes and cars beside you can be overwhelming at times.

This was a wonderful tour with two amazing young ladies. Suong was our tour guide. She was very fluent in English as was her tour partner. We had a comprehensive tour that included the main sites plus how Vietnam coffee is made. It ended with a Vietnamese dinner downtown. We sampled about every food available, and it was all delicious. It should be a must-tour if you travel to Ho Chi Minh. Especially if you have a tour guide as competent and knowledgeable as Suong.

This was the best experience we had on our trip to Vietnam. The girls who took us out were amazing. So nice, knowledgeable about town history, and incredibly accommodating. They hunted down the souvenir we were looking for, stopped at places we wanted to see not usually on the tour, etc. Just great!

This was without doubt the highlight of our trip to HCMC. The guides were pleasant, friendly girls who spoke excellent English and were very knowledgeable about the city - and excellent drivers!!. I went on the trip with my wife and 11 year old daughter. We felt very safe despite the chaos of the traffic around the city. A scooter is definitely the way to get around. This tour is a must for visitors - highly recommended.
