Overview
You may have joined a sightseeing tour and visited most tourist attractions in Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon). However, there is a hidden city in narrow alleyways behind the Saigon you see on crowded main roads in District 1. On our guided Saigon Unseen Tour by motorbike you will have chance to explore Saigon's unseen brilliant gems missed by most of the tourists.
Highlights
  • Uncover hidden Ho Chi Minh City on a private guide–driven motorbike tour
  • Delve into districts, alleys, and temples often missed by tourists
  • Explore markets and residential areas, sip coffees local life
  • Cover more than on foot or bus, with hotel pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your District 1 hotel, don your helmet, and set off by motorbike with your guide driving.

Bypass the tourist attractions and head straight for the lanes, communities, markets, and hidden corners that encapsulate life in this hectic city. Delve into alleyways of narrow houses and apartments; go off-grid into vibrant flower, lantern, Chinese medicine, and food markets; and visit the hidden temples of Saigon Cao Dai and the Ten Thousand Buddhas.

See the Thich Quang Duc Memorial, where a statue honors the Buddhist monk who burned himself alive here in 1963 in political protest, and pass the “Ghost Building” as you listen to its story.

Learn about city life from your guide, and meet locals over a "vot" coffee—unique to Ho Chi Minh City for being steeped through cloth—at a vintage café. Your tour then finishes back at your hotel.

I had a great day driving around Ho Chi Minh with Vi. We went to places that are of the beaten track, but it was still quite pricey for what it was (+-$50 not including anything).More

Fantastic tour given by Natalia & Tina. It rained & the girls supplied ponchos and we felt as safe as houses on the motorbikes. Visited places of great interest and had great conversation with their vast knowledge of the destinations and fabulous spoken English.
