About the Tour

The tour gives you a chance to see Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) the way the locals do: moving through traffic on the back of a motorbike. And because our motorbike tour moves not too fast, you can keep up with the pace of Ho Chi Minh City and dive deep into the Pearl of the Far East. 

Wake up early and experience how the city comes to life after the sun rises. With a fun ride to the most popular tourist spots in Saigon, you can learn the history of each one from the unique perspective of your local tour guide. At each stop, you will get off the bike and walk around to have a lot of great photos as you want. We also will not take you to the common tourist traps. It is time to hop on the back of the bike and experience the best of Saigon.
