The tour was wonderful! All the guides were very helpful, spoke English well, and gave us great historical, cultural, and practical insights about the city. We highly recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your stay in Ho Chi Minh if you've never been, as it is the perfect introduction to navigating the area. Shoutout to John and Andy who kept us safe despite being first time motorbike passengers!
