My guide was very friendly. He knew how to adapt to my centers of interest and taught me many interesting things. Motorcycle trips are very impressive in this busy city but I always felt safe.

Great tour of places you normally don't get to see as a tourist. The guide Tom (Hue) speaks very good English and responded to my wishes, we were traveling alone! Highly recommended!

The tour was amazing. We saw everywhere in Ho Chi Minh city in a half day. Our guide told us every details of the places. I learned lots of history from him. Thank you so much

We had a really great afternoon with Tom and My. You can see a lot more of the city on the mopeds. The two are also really nice and humorous. We really laughed a lot.

Perfectly organized tour to interesting places in the city with lovely guides. Even during rush hour they were driving calmly and securely.
