I have already been several times at Sai Gon but this tour was extraordinary and a totally different experience 3 nice girls with their rollers picked us up at the Hotel Majestic at 5.30. When I first saw them I couldn't imagine they would be able to drive us heavy guys. But I was wrong, they dived into the traffic and drove us through parts of Sai Gon I have never seen before. We enjoyed a typical south Vietnamese dinner at a local restaurant before we went on to visit Chinese whole market, flower market and a lot of other lively places and narrow streets. Although traffic was awful and streets were overcrowded with motorbikes I always felt very save. I don’t know how these girls managed the traffic but they had it under control. I personally would not survive 5 minutes. At the end of the drive we went to another local place to enjoy a typical dessert before we safely have been brought back to our hotel. The tour is something I will do again when I am coming back to Sai Gon.
It was a great tour, with a very friendly and knowledgable guide. We were lucky because we were the only two people booked for the day. That meant that we could stay as long or as short as we wanted at any particular sight. The hour-long cyclo bike ride through Chinatown and the Ho Thi Ky flower market was a great start. It's amazing how the cyclo drivers can maneuver around the rest of the crazy Saigon traffic! Next was a visit to the oldest Buddhist temple in Saigon. Watching the monks chant before eating their meal was a surreal experience. Every stop on the tour was an interesting part of the day. The guide answered every question that we had. This tour is a great value and definitely worth the money!
They say you will have the trip of your life. We did. Exploring Viet Nam on the back of scooters was the best way to go. In half a day, we got to see sites (from the Burning Munk Monument to the City's skyline) that would have taken us a solid day to see. We met locals and felt like locals. The guide, Alina, was very knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. The two drivers, Tu and Quan, were so accommodating ----AND very safe drivers. Thank you for making this one of the highlights of our trip. We recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Viet Nam. Chris and David
I have not enjoyed exhilarating fun like I experienced last night in years. Traveling (and feeling safe and secure) on the back of a motorbike is the only way to travel in Ho Chi Min City. My friendly, talkative and informative guide Tina was like being with an old friend you haven’t seen in years. The owner of this company found a real gem when asking Tina to be part of the Tiger eye team. Do not miss this tour you will be talking about it for years to come. Thank you Tina and thank you Tiger eye.
The motorbike experience around Saigon was a wonderful Memorable experience! Tiger tour guides: Tina , Eve, Indigo and Heidi were very professional courteous and very friendly! The Vietnamese cuisine was delicious punctuated by fried ice cream for dessert. The complimentary photos from the guides was an unexpected surprise! Thank you Tiger Tours
