Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. She took me to various restaurants and eateries on the back of her motorbike to sample Vietnamese dishes. Her riding skills and food knowledge were excellent. Highly recommend this tour.

If you must do one tour in Ho Chi Minh, look no further. It's the best way to get a wholesome feel of the city as it is personalized to your needs whether it's particular street food or sight that you are looking for. Each person has their own tour guide and rides with them on the back of the scooter, which is truly the best way to experience the city like a local. I would recommend this tour to everyone who plans to visit Saigon.
