About
Discover the Ho Chi Minh City behind the landmarks and see more than on foot or bus with this private motorbike tour. Riding a guide-driven scooter, leave District 1’s tourist confines to explore old residential neighborhoods, where local life reigns. Visit tucked-away markets and temples, sip cloth-filtered "vot" coffee at a café, and listen to tales from a guide—experiences you might otherwise miss. Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

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, 3, 5, or 10 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.

Solo tour with Peter/Lam
Mar 2020 • Solo
I had a fantastic time being shown around by Peter. He's such a friendly guy, a safe rider, and his English is amazing. He was even happy to teach me some Vietnamese and recommend vegetarian restaurants. I'd recommend him to anybody for these tours.

The tour itself was really great, especially seeing the homes of real Vietnamese people and how they live, which I wouldn't have seen so up close otherwise. Coffee was amazing!

Scooter tour with your company was a highlight of our time in Saigon!
Feb 2020
The two tour guides were great folks and very knowledgeable about the city and the "out of the way" places to visit! We were in Southeast Asia for 33 days and went on a ton of tours but this "Scooter Tour" is in the top three of all the things we did. My wife and I are over 60 and we were concerned as to the safety of this tour...no need to worry, it was safe and easy and a great time. If you want to see areas you won't see on a "regular bus tour" then this is for you, ENJOY!

Super Unseen Saigon Scooter Tour!
Just got back from the best four hours of our holiday with Navie and Vee (sorry if I've spelt that wrong). These two young ladies are simply wonderful company and have an exemplary knowledge of the parts of Saigon that we would not have seen otherwise. Furthermore their skill in naviegating (see what I did there) the insane streets on motorbikes meant we felt totally safe and confident. Chinatown, the temple of 10,000 buddhas, the best coffee shop, the flower market, the memorial to the burning monk, and the sheer energy of Saigon into the evening were ably demonstrated. Thank you girls for an experience that will remain with us for a lifetime. Highly recommended.

Not as hidden as it could be
We had a really enjoyable tour with 2 guides through the busy streets of Saigon. The guides were very knowledgeable and genuine, sharing their experiences as young Vietnamese in this city. Most of the areas were very different and quite an experience.

The reason it’s not getting 5 stars is that, despite hidden, it’s a very set route in which you meet many other tourists doing the same tour. Instead of going to a coffeshop with almost only tourists, I would’ve preferred to visit a local coffee shop that did not have a menu in English.

The route also seemed a bit inflexible, as all our wishes unfortunately were not possible (visiting a back alley, a toy market or just a regular supermarket).

Hello Marcos Martinez, Thanks so much for taking your valuable time joining our Unseen Tour by Scooter and leave a review on the tour. It is a special thanks to your nice words about the tour and our talented guides. We will do our best to show tourists the best of the city. However, we would like to explain something. The coffee shop is really a hidden spot in a small alley which is home to many Saigon people for years. Some local people and Vietnamese people from other regions do not know about this coffee shop. So that we call it a hidden or less-known stop. You come to Ho Chi Minh City in high tourism season when there is a large number of tourists visiting Ho Chi Minh City. A few companies take their guests to the coffee shops although Scooter Saigon Tour is the first company found this hidden cafe and take our guests there for the first time. The alley coffee shop is rather small so that you feel like "many foreigners" there. Flexibility is one of the highlights of tours provided by Scooter Saigon Tour. It means that guests can discuss with the guides what to do and eat on the tour. We can skip some places you have visited on other tours or would not like to see. Or we add a stop that you have read about and are excited to explore. You are welcome to tell us via email/whatsapp/sms when you book the tour, or tell the guide when you meat him/her. However, the additional stop should not "a pet store, a stuffed animal store, a supermarket" which are requested by you on the tour. Our guides have recommend you to go to the convenience store next to your hotel to buy necessary things. Or you can go to the supermarket after the tour by yourself. A 4-hour sightseeing or unseen tour by scooter can not include a stop which is similar to store, supermarket. At last, I would like to say sorry again for any inconvenience. I wish you all the very best. I hope you will continue traveling to new regions, joining more tours, learning about the local life and culture and having great experience. Thank you, Kind regards

We had an excellent motorbike tour of the unseen parts of Saigon. Tom, Shane & Ramsey made us feel very safe and provided lots of interesting information along the way. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the city beyond district 1.

We booked this scooter tour online when we arrived in HCM and the booking service was easy and efficient. Our 2 scooters and guides arrived at our hotel to take us on the 4hr tour. Both guides were excellent, spoke very good English and made the experience very memorable. Don’t be put off by the traffic they were very skilful drivers.
