For over 6 years in Vietnam, Back of the Bike Tours has been providing the best ho chi minh tours for travelers like ourselves who love Vietnam and Vietnamese Food. The type of traveler who wants to experience Vietnam on the streets with the local Vietnamese. Experiencing the sights, sounds, and smells that hit you full force while cruising pillion through the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is the only way to experience Vietnamese food or the sights of Saigon.
Traveling to Vietnam you will need to go on a Ho Chi Minh Tour in order to experience as much of Ho Chi Minh City as you can during your time in Saigon. While the Ho Chi Minh Tour experience can be very diverse, there are a lot of options out there when it comes to getting around Saigon on your tour. The top three modes of transportation in Ho Chi Minh City for a Saigon Tour will be walking tours, bus tours, and motorbike tours. Which options you might prefer for your Ho Chi Minh Tour will lead you to help making the best decision on the type of tour that is best for you.
Ho Chi Minh tours that use foot paths and sidewalks to get around the city can be a great afternoon. There are actually many Ho Chi Minh Tours that are free provided that you give the Ho Chi Minh tour leader a tip after your walking tour. This is great value for a budget traveller who is looking to get some local insight while on a quick Saigon Tour. Another advantage to taking a walking Ho Chi Minh tour is that there isn’t usually a sign up in advance option for these tours. Travelers are able to meet up at a dedicated spot picked by the walking Saigon tour before the beginning of the tour. Even if only 1 or 2 people show up that day, usually the Saigon tour guide will still give the tour. So, if you think that you might not be able to make your tour time and date, a walking tour in Ho Chi Minh might be a great option for you.
We are of course bias when it comes to what type of Ho Chi Minh Tour that we believe you should book on your next vacation. The advantages of a Saigon tour by motorbike is of course having your own driver who can spend time explaining Ho Chi Minh City to you as a customer one on one. Each driver on a Ho Chi Minh tour on motorbike speaks excellent english. Besides having great drivers on our Ho Chi Minh tours, we are able to see a lot more of the city on a motorbike during a Saigon tour because motorbikes are agile and small.

Fun and insightful!
The Saigon city tour was a total joy – as a last minute quick getaway without the time to research and plan, we wanted to maximise our knowledge of the city in a short time so we could do it some justice and were not disappointed. The staff were knowledgeable, safe drivers, and not to mention hilarious! Would recommend to anyone early in their trip – even previous non-tour-goers like us.
We did 2 tours in Saigon, the half day city tour and the evening food tour. These were the best tours I have ever taken. The food tour was anamazing experience, riding thru the streets of Saigon at night, visiting different restaurants and street vendors. What makes these tours so special is the delightful guides/riders who shared their knowledge and happily chatted about their lives and enquired about ours. Would do this again in a heartbeat.
We had so much fun on this tour, prepare yourself to eat a lot, I recommend not to eat like a half day before, we had 5 stops and all of them were fabulous. Guides were great and the whole tour was super-smooth, no rush and no waiting to be served but still, we spent nearly 4,5 hours on the tour. All I can say: excellent.
