What you can expect
Get the perfect overview of the real lifestyle of Vietnamese people and join this tour for an authentic experience. It’s possible to start at 8:30 am or 9 am but since the sun in Vietnam rises up early so we suggest that we wake up early to enjoy the day in Southeast Asia too. No need to worry about the pickup as your girl riders will show up at 8:30 am or 1:00 pm to meet you in front of your hotel with big smiles on their faces. From there you and your expert riders head to the local market where you can observe the true local life and see how the locals run their small businesses for a living. This market is absolutely non-touristic one and your rider will tell you stories you would love to hear when walking around the food stands
Learn about Vietnamese & Chinese communities when the journey leads you to a beautiful temple where you can adopt traditional gestures by making wishes for good fortune. Absorb the sacred atmosphere of the Thien Hau Temple, a revered structure built in the 19th century and dedicated to Thien Hau, the protector of the seafarers.
What old customers say about Saigon Kiss Tours?
I recently visited HCM City with a friend where we stayed for a week. We are both in agreement that this motorbike food tour was hands down the funnest one of the trip. We were met at our hotel by our guides Ana and Kiew where we hopped on the back of their motor bikes and experienced one of the most intense, chaotic, but “some how it all works” and funnest city bikes rides ever. They took us to a couple of local street food vendors that we would otherwise never have been brave enough to approach and had some amazing food. Ana and Kiew are both students and have infectious and charming personalities. They both speak English very well and were great conversationalists, it was like hanging out with friends. They are really the reason why this experience was so fun and memorable.
Ana has been an amazing guide and she was very knowledgeable about everything! She made me feel at ease and I am very happy to have gotten a chance to meet her on this epic adventure!
We had so much fun with our street food night tour with the saigon kiss girls riders. They are fun and full of energy. They even sung number of songs while having our food and drinks. You can feel you are safe as they drove smoothly. This is highly recommended.
This tour was one of our favorite things we did in Saigon! We booked the night food & sightseeing tour, but there are a few different types of tours so make sure you choose the one that fits your experience. The guides will also tailor it to exactly what you are looking for, so talk to them before you start the tour as they have options. It was an awesome way to taste some local street food and see some sights, including a local secret spot. We also wanted to experience the crazy traffic on a scooter but hesitated to rent one even though my friend and I both ride motorcycles in the states, so this tour was a perfect way to do this.
Ana & Kieu were awesome guides with excellent driving skills so we felt very safe on the back of the motorbike and they spoke fluent English which made it easy to have a conversation, ask questions about Vietnam, the people and culture. The girls were very knowledgable and we enjoyed talking to them about many things, including their lives and future goals, so we felt like we made friends with a couple locals and wish them the best. We loved that this is an all girl company to promote women and give them opportunities to help them be successful. We highly recommend this tour for many reasons!
Been to HCMC a few times and still think this is a wonderful way to get immersed into the Saigon feel. It’s truly fun, safe (by Saigon standards) and the ladies do their utmost to make conversation on just about every topic imaginable. I’ve done a few scooter tours but this one felt the most connected, and least touristy. Very authentic experience.
My husband and I fortunately to the advise of fellow travelers who recommended this tour to us, we fitted in on our last night in Ho Chi Minh city, and we got to see more and experience more in that 1 evening than perhaps the whole week. Jackie and Min were cheeky lovable funny girls, with just the right amount of commentary! We really enjoyed the food experiences and sharing with the locals and the crazy motorbike ride through some of the busiest streets in the world, the girls were very careful and adapt at riding. They were quick to enjoy a genuine laugh and we shared many hilarious moments! thank you Jackie and Min you made our last night in your beautiful country memorable, also they took many photos which were in our email box when we got home, added service.
I booked a tour on the recommendation of a friend, and I’m so glad I did because out of a three week honeymoon to Thailand and Vietnam the Saigon Kiss Tours was one of the highlights of our entire trip! The food was incredible, varied, and you essentially get a full meal at each stop. They timed it perfectly by giving us just enough room between locations to work up a renewed appetite (and the tour as a whole was well organized). If your travel is driven by a desire to explore a place through its’ food this tour is definitely worthwhile for you, but what really stood out for me was the opportunity to speak with the women who give the tours and get a more intimate experience in local spots. The women were super friendly, engaging, genuine, and spoke excellent English. They took pictures of us to help document our experience and emailed them to me after, asked questions and planned in such a way as to meet our preferences and needs, and were excellent drivers (I never felt nervous or unsafe whatsoever).
As a tourist who doesn’t speak the local language, I know I am only scratching the surface of the place I am trying to get to know when I travel, and exchanging questions about each other’s home countries and learning about Vietnam from their perspectives let me deepen my understanding so much more. HIGHLY recommend!
David, our daughter Maria, our grandson Hunter and I had an amazing time with our Saigon Kiss Tours girls. We experienced life in Saigon, ate food we will never forget and enjoyed the fun and hospitality of our truely memorable friends and attractions. All this on the back of a motor cycle where we were perfectly safe. We paid in US dollar after they send us back to our hotel, I love how they give choices for customers to pay in advance or pay later.
If you want a genuine and real experience you must do this. Thanks again. Love from Karen.
Time for a coffee break at one of the oldest cafes in town and admire how the owners maintain and preserve their traditional coffee-making process as the pride of their family’s tradition. Here they still brew the coffee with a cloth strainer and a clay pot. Small coffee place but always crowded.
Finish your adventure when your riders take you to a local restaurant for amazing Vietnamese food. Here time to test your chopstick using skill and satisfy your belly with a Vietnamese noodle. If you have heard about the legendary Pho, this dish is another kind of noddle but tastier.
Head back to your hotel, and your riders drop you there and say your goodbyes after a fun adventure.
