    Scooter Saigon Tour
    Stop: 4 hours
    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.

After this trip you have a very goof knowledhe of the history and the interesting city. I can 100% recommend this activity!

Nov 2019 • Friends
If you are looking for a tour to see some tourist hotspots (like the post office) BUT great local places (like flower market, living area), you have to book this tour.
Our guides Tom and Ramsey explained so many interesting things about Saigon which you do not find in a travel guide book. They were also interested to understand our culture.
And don‘t be fear about sitting on a motor bike in these crazy streets. It was an enjoyable ride and much better than walking in this heat.

Lovely Ho Chi Minh tour
Dec 2018 • Family
We have a knowledgeable and safe tour guide at Scooter Saigon. At first I’m skeptical if my 4 yr. old son is safe to ride a scooter with my husband but our tour guide re-assure us they are good and safe drivers. They also make us comfortable while riding the scooter. Highly recommended.

A highlight of our trip to Vietnam!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Trang and Nana were a delight to spend the morning with! My boyfriend and I only had one day in Saigon and this was a perfect way to see the city. We easily booked our tour the night before. Scooter Saigon was very flexible and accommodated our 8:30AM start. Trang and Nana picked us up without difficulty at our AirBnB in District 4. Having been nervous to rent scooters on our own in Vietnam, their professionalism and confidence in maneuvering the streets of Saigon put us at ease. Their knowledge of the history of the city was impressive. We particularly enjoyed chatting with them over coffee and breakfast at Cheo Leo. We highly recommend a tour with Scooter Saigon if you're interested in getting to know some locals and are ready to hop on the back of a bike for a memorable experience! Thank you!

Best way to see the city
What an amazing afternoon seeing the city!
Friendly, safe but fun journey through historical sights and modern approach.
Loved the oldest coffee shop (with our tradition baguette lunch) and seeing book street alongside the post office, cathedral, local housing after the war and Chinese temple. Hoping our wish shall burn slowly to come true.
Our Rnglish speaking guides were happy to chat and answer our questions. Really enjoyed pointing our th fun way the scooters carry EVERYTHING! 🤣🤣
Would recommend and return for a second trip.
