Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short talk about the tour program and making sure you are ok on the motorbike, we weave around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see 7 districts, lots of must-see attractions, 11 markets, and many interesting things of the city.
Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office. Then we drive along Independence Palace, War Remnants Museum, and Turtle Lake.
Head to Thich Quang Duc Memorial where you listen to the mysterious story about the unburned heart. Then we drive to Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment building since the 1960s to learn more about the real local life which is totally different from what you see in the city center.
After that, we drive to Ho Thi Ky - the biggest wholesale flower market and Cambodian market hidden in alleyways to see thousands of colorful flowers and many strange things.
We stop at an 80-year coffee shop hidden in an alley to learn how to make "Vot" coffee, interact with the nice owner, enjoy a drink and chat leisurely with your guides as friends.
Arriving in China Town in District 5, we visit Binh Tay Market, Thien Hau Temple and have a drive around brilliant gems including fashion street, painting street, medicine street, electronic market, fabric market, lantern market, fruit market, bird market.
On the way back, we show you stilt houses in slum areas along Saigon channels. The scene reflects a sharp contrast between the poor and the rich in the city. Ben Thanh market is the last attraction in the journey.
The guide returns you to the hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.

My partner and I loved this tour! It was our last day in Saigon but the two tour guides took us places we hadn't seen yet. Food on this tour was really good and plentiful. My advice...DO NOT EAT BREAKFAST BEFORE YOU GO! lol.... The two girls who took us on this tour were amazing! They one was Trang and unfortunately I didn't get the others name :- Both had very good English, were chatty and engaging. Great sense of humours and we all had many laughs as we were driven around. Thank you so much for making our last day in Vietnam so enjoyable!
