Overview
Discover the Ho Chi Minh City behind the landmarks and see more than on foot or bus with this private motorbike tour. Riding a guide-driven scooter, leave District 1’s tourist confines to explore old residential neighborhoods, where local life reigns. Visit tucked-away markets and temples, sip cloth-filtered "vot" coffee at a café, and listen to tales from a guide—experiences you might otherwise miss. Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

Highlights
  • Uncover hidden Ho Chi Minh City on a private guide–driven motorbike tour
  • Delve into districts, alleys, and temples often missed by tourists
  • Explore markets and residential areas, sip coffees local life
  • Cover more than on foot or bus, with hotel pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your District 1, 3, 5, or 10 hotel, don your helmet, and set off by motorbike with your guide driving. Bypass the tourist attractions and head straight for the lanes, communities, markets, and hidden corners that encapsulate life in this hectic city. Delve into alleyways of narrow houses and apartments; go off-grid into vibrant flower, lantern, Chinese medicine, and food markets; and visit the hidden temples of Saigon Cao Dai and the Ten Thousand Buddhas. See the Thich Quang Duc Memorial, where a statue honors the Buddhist monk who burned himself alive here in 1963 in political protest, and pass the “Ghost Building” as you listen to its story. Learn about city life from your guide, and meet locals over a "vot" coffee—unique to Ho Chi Minh City for being steeped through cloth—at a vintage café. Your tour then finishes back at your hotel.

The two tour guides were great folks and very knowledgeable about the city and the "out of the way" places to visit! We were in Southeast Asia for 33 days and went on a ton of tours but this "Scooter Tour" is in the top three of all the things we did. My wife and I are over 60
