We were encouraged to take in this tour by our daughter who did it prior to Xmas. In all honesty we booked it with two Australian guys when we had a couple of drinks and we were filled with intrepidation when we realised what we had done. However arrangements made- the bike guides met us at the cruise ship on... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to taste some of the unique street food Saigon had to offer, and this tour did not disappoint. We booked the private chef's tour, and Frederick and his team took us to 9 different stops throughout the city. He even accommodated our desire to try Hot Vit Lon and home-brewed rice liquor. The two young... More

Initially we wanted to do XO Tours. But with no availability, they suggested we try Back of the Bike and I'm so glad they did! A blessing in disguise really. This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Saigon and we can't stop talking about all the great factoids and stories told by our funny, knowledgeable tour guides! Thank... More

A real laugh and a great way to see the city and eat in places you wouldn't normally eat. Our tour guides Nhi and Han took great care of us and where... More

This is a great way to experience the city and the food! Plus there's the bragging rights for being on the back of a motorbike in the crazy traffic. Our guides (two lovely women drivers and an accompanying photographer) were informative, friendly and energetic...even though they work really hard! We were directed to this group by Wide Eyed Tours who... More

My wife and I did the evening tour and we both agreed it was the best tour we did in Vietnam. Riding around on the back of bikes was so much fun. Everything was run really smoothly, the food was amazing and all the staff were super friendly. Highly recommend!!!
