Our concept is to show travelers a different side to Saigon, it's not always pretty but it is pretty amazing.Our aim is to provide a unique view that combines traveling on the back of a motorbike through the mayhem and chaos that are Saigon streets.At Saigon Unseen we now offer Motor Bike Tours, Walking Tours and Photography Tours, full details can be found on our website.

Adam the guide was very punctual, and led us to the less touristy areas around the hotel. He also gave us lots of good recommendations for eating etc! We walked through 2 districts so completely different from each other.
A great way to get your bearings in such a confusing city, we toured the morning after we arrived, having got from the airport in the dark, we didn't really know where we were!

Hello thanks for taking the time to write a review!

Walking is a great way to take in Saigon and work out where things are! Great to hear you enjoyed the morning out and hopefully we'll see you back again...........maybe on the bikes?

Cheers

I booked this trip for 6 (ladies) from Australia and had very quick replies from Adam via email. He picked us up at our hotel at 8.30am and off we went. As I am a motorbike rider and have been to Viet Nam before I was comfortable. The other ladies were very nervous at first, because of the traffic and being on a scooter. After a short while, everyone felt comfortable and loved it. So even if a bit nervous, give it a go. We toured around the good, bad, pretty and ugly. We stopped for a coffee break, visited a temple, stopped for lunch. It rained on our day, The drivers and Adam supplied us with raincoats. Even though we got a bit wet, we still had fun. Kudos to Adam, very informative. Drinks and lunch were included. I am vegetarian, but no problem, I was provided with a great meal. Righly recommend. Thanks Adam.

Thank you ladies for the review and kind words! It was great to meet you all, and even a with a little bit rain the best way to see Saigon is like a local - on motor bike!!!

Thanks again and hope to see you back in Vietnam soon!

A real insight into HCMC -Saigon. We did this motorcycle tour on the second day after our arrival.
A very safe but close up experience of the local traffic where there appears to be very few rules applicable to motorcycles. We visited most sections of the city to see the contrast between the old and new, both wealthy and poorer areas. A real insight was gained by a home visit in a poorer area of the city . We rode through the congested local markets - just like the locals, through mazes of narrow alleyways and much more.
Vietnamese coffee and lunch were included in the tour. Thank you Ut and Sao for one of the highlights of our Vietnam holiday.

Saigon Unseen by motorbike was absolutely fantastic. We were taken all over HCMC to places most tourists, and even expatriates living here, will never see. Ut, the tour guide, was knowledgeable, engaging and a lot of fun! They were also very flexible and willing to take us just about anywhere we had interest to go. I will definitely be recommending to my friends!

Really fun walking tour through some of the lesser visited, by tourists, streets of Saigon. Adam who took the tour was lots of fun and a font on knowledge. Also great value.
