5 Must-See City Private Tour: German/English-Speaking Guide

2. 5 Must-See City Private Tour: German/English-Speaking Guide

At 8:30 AM, start your day with a convenient hotel pick-up that transfers you to your first destination: the War Remnants Museum. This museum presents an important but one-sided history of the appalling legacy of the decades of war that have ravaged Vietnam. At 9:30 AM, head to China Town to visit Binh Tay market. Its center is busy, crowded and messy with small aisles selling all manner of goods. This market sometimes disappoints tourists when compared to other markets in Ho Chi Minh as the products are not that varied, but the main draw to Cholon is not to shop but to enjoy the authentic Chinese atmosphere that has existed here for hundreds of years. At noon, you'll head to a local restaurant for lunch where you will be served delicious Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). Spend the rest of the day visiting important landmarks. Start with the Reunification Palace, which was the residence and workplace of the President of South Vietnam until the end of the war in April 1975. Continue on to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the General Post Office, French colonial structures and a lacquer workshop. Finish your day with a convenient drop off to your hotel.

My family and I have travelled a lot, but this motorbike tour was by far the best tour ever. I would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Ho Chi Minh City. The exhilarating experience of driving in the extremely busy main roads and alley ways is beyond explanation. One has to experience this to understand how amazing this tour is. This tour is the best way to experience local culture. The guides have exceptional knowledge of the city which they pass on to the tourists. Visiting one of the oldest local apartment complex, drinking coffee at an 82 year old coffee shop and seeing the coffee being prepared, visiting a beautiful temple, and eating food at a local restaurant are all experiences which I wouldn't have been able to gain had it not been for this tour. To top it of, the guides/bike riders are super friendly and exceptionally cool.

It was a great tour, with a very friendly and knowledgable guide. We were lucky because we were the only two people booked for the day. That meant that we could stay as long or as short as we wanted at any particular sight. The hour-long cyclo bike ride through Chinatown and the Ho Thi Ky flower market was a great start. It's amazing how the cyclo drivers can maneuver around the rest of the crazy Saigon traffic! Next was a visit to the oldest Buddhist temple in Saigon. Watching the monks chant before eating their meal was a surreal experience. Every stop on the tour was an interesting part of the day. The guide answered every question that we had. This tour is a great value and definitely worth the money!

They say you will have the trip of your life. We did. Exploring Viet Nam on the back of scooters was the best way to go. In half a day, we got to see sites (from the Burning Munk Monument to the City's skyline) that would have taken us a solid day to see. We met locals and felt like locals. The guide, Alina, was very knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. The two drivers, Tu and Quan, were so accommodating ----AND very safe drivers. Thank you for making this one of the highlights of our trip. We recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Viet Nam. Chris and David

We had a great time, the scooter was safe and fun to ride . Our guides was knowledgeable and cheerful, Vi and her colleague took us to many districts and samples delicious street food. The experience was more than we expected. We talked about old and Morden history of the city . They are happy to tailor your trip and interests . Is a must to have .

Really fun riding around with an expert driver , weaving in and out of traffic , side streets and passages , eating exquisite street food and visiting historic areas of Saigon .
