  • TripAdvisor can be a bit confusing as they label motorcycle tours as bike tours. This is a cycling tour and well worth it. I was scheduled for an REI cycling tour from DaLat to Hanoi and meeting my group the same day. I had already done a couple of motorcycling tours but was itching to be more active and get on a bicycle. I ride in San Francisco and have ridden in Bangkok. This was great as it got one used to riding in traffic and realizing that nothing was going to happen and one is responsible for what is in front of them. Having a local who had a sense of your abilities was fantastic.
    We visited the waterfront, Ho Chi Minh Plaza by City Hall, Post Office, War Remnants Museum, Birdsinging Park, a Temple in Chinatown, a Market street in Chinatown and then some. Tong Le was pretty flexible and would have adapted the tour to my needs, in fact had to cut it short some as I had to check out of my hotel room at 1 PM. We even went for a longer ride out to his office in the suburbs. Initially I wasn't that hungry, and living in the Bay Area with a large South Vietnamese community, having had my share of Pho, wasn't that keen but I'm sure glad I went. It was delicious, some of the best I have had, I see why Tong picked this place.
    On my REI ride, it was clear that I was ahead of the group when it came to navigating traffic and traffic circles, this ride gave me a lot of confidence and thus could enjoy it much more. I knew what to expect though nothing compared to the traffic in Saigon. Had I not had a cycling trip already booked, I would have certainly booked a Mekong Delta ride with Le. I will post some images but my GoPro videos would do it more justice. Of note, Tong has guided REI trips in the distant past. From what I experienced all people with all types of cycling experience could do this easily-don't hesitate.

  • What a great day! Tung - our guide - was fantastic! We cycled all through the city with stops at the major attractions. Tung had lots of info at each stop and also recommended places to go back to or restaurants to try. Our pho lunch was a trip highlight and we went back for pho a couple more times during our stay.

  • Tung! Greatest bike guide for Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City! Not too scary and fantastic way to see the City. Highly enjoyable, recommend this activity.

  • Had a great bike tour with Tong. We meandered down many streets passing through several markets, Saigon river, Presidential Palace, Saigon Square, Cathedral, Post Office, Vietnam War Museum, Chinatown and ending at his bike shop. Stopping at each destination for a quick history lesson and pics, with a stop for coffee. Last destination was a great small Pho restaurant for some noodle soup and cold beer.

    The bike ride was great. A bit intimidating at first, biking alongside thousands of motorbikes, but you get the hang of it. I do recommend having some previous biking experience - being able to control motion and speed well under crowded and sometimes unpredictable situations. But the craziness adds to the excitement. All in all, a great way to get some exercise and explore the city.

  • I booked this half day tour of Saigon from my hotel and found myself the only one on it! It was great. My guide, Tung, was an engaging young guy who turned up at my hotel with a well-maintained bike for me complete with helmet. And, after introductions and a short briefing, off we went into the Ho Chi Minh City traffic. I'm confident on a bike so I wasn't too apprehensive about the high density traffic on the city streets and Tung was also very careful about my well-being. Crossing lanes, weaving in and out of the army of motor scooters and cars was no problem.
    We visited many of the sights Saigon is known for, stopped at a local cafe for, as Tung put it, The best coffee in Saigon, stopped at at Tung's favourite traditional Vietnamese eatery for Pho and beer - it was superb - and generally enjoyed the pedaling around the city, being part of the constant cacophony and tangle of buzzing mopeds, horns, and other vehicles.
    Cycling in the heat was surprisingly bearable as the slight breeze from our progress cooled things just enough to make things comfortable.
    Tung was good company, careful of safety, spoke good English and was worth every dong. I also had the unexpected bonus of finishing up at his house and meeting his wife. The end to a great half day in Ho Chi Minh City. Thanks Tung!

  • What a great introduction to the city. Ken was fantastic and did a great job of keeping me safe in the insane traffic. Great to have the chance to speak to someone local and learn a bit more about the culture. You need to be reasonably proficient on a bike and ride with measured confidence. Great to be right amongst all the scooters.
