    This was the first thing we did when we arrived in Vietnam and it ended up being one of the most memorable experiences of the whole trip! Navie and Nga were the absolute sweetest, most knowledgeable, fun guides we could have hoped for! They showed us such an incredible time and my husband and I felt like we were with friends. We learned, laughed, ate so much good food, and saw Saigon through the eyes and scooters of two locals. I cannot recommend this tour enough. You will not regret it!! Thank you Navie and Nga for the beautiful memories ❤️

    The four ladies were brilliant, informative and really friendly. Learnt a lot and my wife said it was more like being shown around by friends than a tour company. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful way to start our time in Saigon. Our guides Trang and Nikki made as feel safe on the bikes at all times as we wound our way around the chaos that is the motorbike traffic of Saigon. Although not easy to do while driving, both ladies particularly Nikki chatted as we drove, giving some information on Saigon and the areas we were passing through. All of the street food we stopped for along the way was delicious and we were certainly full by the end of the morning! As an added bonus, we also had photos from the day emailed to us after the tour.

    We chose this tour because of the flexibility of timings and small groups. We were met at our chosen place by Trang, Nicky, Nhu and Anh. The girls were fantastic and gave us a great insight into Ho Chi Minh city life. They were knowledgeable and fun, they took us to various sites as well as two local food places where we sampled excellent food with no tourists in site. The traffic is mad and very busy, but the girls drove with great confidence and we all felt really safe. They chatted endlessly along the way and weaved in out of small alleys, through the flower market, and we ended up shopping at the market where the girls waited so they could drop us back to our pick up point. We were visiting for the day whilst on a cruise and we would rate this tour as the best day of the 2 week holiday. Excellent all round thank you girls!
