Xin Chao! I am Trang (co-host with Huyen and Tai). We have been living in Ho Chi Minh City for 10 years and working as a freelance tour guide for nearly 5 years. We are passionate about everything in the city. We have learned that many tourists do not have enough time and are stuck in District 1 to see tourist attractions. We have been explored the city to its fullest and found lots of hidden brilliant gems of the city in other districts, especially in alleys which only can be reached by two wheels. We are excited to share these amazing parts of Saigon with travelers. That is the reason we created the Private Saigon Unseen Tour by Scooter which includes most interesting hidden places and real-life of Saigon. If you have any questions, feel free text me via WhatsApp, iMessage, Kakao, Line +84909190247

You may think it is dangerous to sit on the back of a scooter in Saigon. However, it is very safe because we drive slowly and all the guides (drivers) are experienced on driving foreign visitors including adults, elders, and children.
