Few words about Saigon Rides



Traveling in the back seat of the scooter allows you to see Ho Chi Minh from the perspective of residents . This city is loud, fast and in constant motion. The dynamics and continuous movement of people and motorbikes is real madness ! We invite everyone to discover the differences between the various parts of the city by traversing the thicket of small streets! Each of them has its own atmosphere, is filled with cafes, pubs, bars and food stalls. Each trip is accompanied by a tasting of local dishes and drinks - because Vietnam is a culinary paradise and trying local delicacies is obligatory!

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. On trips with children we can also modify stops (and to our "menu" we can add: coconut ice cream, desserts, more fruit).

Whether you are 7 or 70 years old, our trips are for everyone! Saigon Rides is a comfortable and safe way to explore the city.

Trips take place regardless of the weather, drivers have raincoats for everyone. Of course, we will not travel in heavy rains, but wait in one of the eateries with treats. After the downpour, we will continue our journey.

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.

We provide pickup from any hotel in District 1.

We strongly recommend full footwear (not flip-flops) and loose outfit. We avoid taking backpacks and bags, we won't need them. In Saigon during the winter for very sensitive to cold, a thin long sleeve may be useful, in Hanoi in November - March it is necessary to adjust the clothing to the temperature (long pants and jacket).
