I had a really enjoyable morning with Sony as we went out and about the streets of Saigon. Sony took me to places i would never have an opportunity to see on my own. I now know how to make coffee the ‘Vietamese’ way and can now set about perfecting the ‘perfect’ cuppa. I loved being on the back of scooter and always felt at ease as Sony navigated the Saigon traffic and narrow alleyways, great riding! I very much recommend Sony and Saigon Adventures in seeing the unseen sights of Saigon, and sharing a local insight into everyday life. Very Enjoyable.

This was a great way to see the Ho Chi Minh City. We hopped on the back of our tour guides motorbikes initially concerned about the frantic traffic but at no stage was there cause for alarm. Our drivers, Tee and Stephan were safe, friendly, and knowledgeable of the area. It was interesting going behind the tourist areas into the other Districts to see how the people live. Also best beef noodle ever was offered at the end of the tour. Would definitely recommend you include this in your HCMC stay.

When I read about Saigon Unseen on Trip Advisor, I was really excited. This is exactly the kind of thing I love to do: see parts of a city that most travelers don't get to, but that reflect the real city. Throw in a motorcycle, and I'm ready to go!

Unfortunately, despite repeated emails and messages through their website, I never heard back from them. They may have been out of town, in which case they could have set up an auto-reply to let me know. I was really disappointed, although I did have a wonderful time exploring the city on my own. I would suggest contacting them well in advance, and be prepared with other plans in case they don't respond to you.

Saigon is best on the back of a bike and these guys know how to give you an interesting tour that will have you visiting hidden churches and pagodas, Chinese medicine men, private homes, floating markets...the list is endless! Do not miss it if you are looking for something authentic!
