What To Expect

Immerse yourself in the traffic culture of Saigon and call it an adventure. This experience is designed with the concept of #GirlPower. Each of the guides ride the motorbikes and offer off the beaten path for those who visit Saigon.

Xin Chao! As the local insiders, born drivers, we would love to take you on an adventure on back of our motorbikes. This experience is 3.5 to 4 hours and covers at least 3 local districts. Starts in the morning, afternoon on a daily basic.

You wonder how this city looks like when the sun shines? You wonder how people can move smoothly in this chaos traffic and still smile? Let us give you the answers by taking to live exactly a local life, to know about its history, its stories, and its beauty.

Start from your hotel, you and your drivers head to the local market where you can observe the truly local life and see how the locals run their small businesses for a living. This market is absolutely a non-touristic one and your riders will tell you stories you would love to hear when walking around the food stands.

Learn more about the local 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 temple, a revered structure which is dedicated to the god and goddess.

Time for a coffee break at the oldest cafe in town and admire how the owners maintain and preserve their traditional coffee making process as a 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 for its interesting history.

Finish your Day Adventure with a tasty bowl of local noodle. Then your riders take you back to your hotel to drop you there and say goodbye after a fun and exciting day.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.

My question is not listed here. What should I do?
