  • FOOD TOUR ON MOTORBIKE - BEST WAY TO EXPLORE HO CHI MINH!

    FOOD FUN

    My husband and I had been recommended this tour by some tourists that had just done it. We were taken on the tour by Tiny and Juho. They were fantastic! They spent 4 hours taking us around and giving us an insight into life for the Vietnamese people. Along the way we were educated and well fed. The food was fantastic and in abundance. We felt completely safe and there was no concern about being on the busy roads. This is a must while in Ho Chi Minh!.

    EXCELLENT TOUR, WITH FIRST CLASS GUIDES TEE AND KENT

    We did the half day scooter tour, and couldn't have been more impressed. It was my partners first time on a scooter, and coupled with the HCM traffic she was a little nervous. Tee and Kent, our guides put her at ease right away. We visited temples, the flower market, motor cycle market, amongst others as well as fruit and vegetable produce from the Mekong Delta being sold on the banks of the Saigon River. We went up and down tiny alleys in areas off the main tourist areas. We got caught in a heavy downpour which added to the fun of the day. The supplied ponchos helped keep us dry. The guides, Tee and Kent, speak really good english, and explained things about the historical significance of certain places we visited really well. One of the best parts was our stop to have an authentic vietnamese coffee and we each chatted about our various cultures and interests. This has been my 3rd visit to Vietnam and I have done lots of tours and sightseeing, but this was right up there with one of the best things I have done. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone Thank you for a wonderful tour Tee and Kent Andrew and Maree

  • GOOD FUN!

    A FANTASTIC TOUR

    What an incredible night of exploring "non-touristy" delicious street food all over the city! Sophie is an incredibly fun, knowledgeable, thoughtful girl that beautifully wove through not only the maze of crazy traffic, but also the maze of my picky eating!! I cannot speak highly enough of what a fun and energetic tour this is! I highly recommend this experience!!

    TINY FOR THE WIN!

    I did the food tour around the city, and was lucky to get Tiny as my tour guide. She was amazing! Super friendly, very knowledgeable, and excellent English. I actually ended up with a private tour with her, and time just flew by as she took me from one delicious place to another, and talked about food, Vietnamese culture, and life. Highly recommend this company and in particular Tiny as your tour guide. Hi Tiny! - Your american bf
