FAQ, which is what you ask most often

Each of our trips is worth the price. Most companies that provide similar services smuggle in hidden costs without providing the highest level of service. With SaigonRides you can be sure that our goal is not reaching into your wallet. Each of the trips also helps local families with whom we cooperate. If you are interested, please contact us!

Drivers are Vietnamese who have been driving for at least 5 years. They have experience in everyday driving in very heavy traffic, some of them work professionally as drivers.

Of course. We have already hosted many small guests delighted on trips on motorbikes. Children can travel alone or, if they are smaller, together with a parent, on one motorcycle.

Of course. Vietnamese cuisine is extremely "friendly" for vegetarians and vegans, offering a whole bunch of dishes that will be suitable for your diet. We recommend private trips in this situation, where we can adjust all stops (eateries with food) to your eating preferences.
