    We had the best experience with Ramseyle and Tom! They are very flexible, because as it suddenly started to rain, they confirmed that it was ok to start the tour an hour later. They were very social, enthusiastic, spoke very good English and provided us with lots of history and background on the various sites we visited. They took us to a very nice (80 year old) coffee place, where we were allowed in the kitchen to see the coffee making process. They drove very safely and took the time to answer all our questions. If you are looking for a nice city tour of Ho Chi Minh City, look no further! Ramseyle and Tom are the guides you need!

    My guide Ramseyle was an expert. Knowledge deep, friendly and was interested in my interests - took me to some great local places and I learnt so much. Her driving skills were amazing too! Highly recommend the tour and Ramseyle in the seat with you ✨✨✨✨✨

    This was definitely the best tour I’ve even taken. My girlfriend and I took the “Unseen and Food Tour” along with Tom and Ramseley (guides) and it was incredible. We not only got to see a completely new side of the city but were loaded with plenty of interesting information and facts. We stopped for delicious food and great coffee and received at the end excellence recommendations from both of our guides. Thank you for the great experience!

    Hands down best tour of my life! Ramseyle and Tom are wonderful and showed us the hidden gems of the city which we would have never seen without them. I’m usually a little screamish on a scooter in Vietnam but Ramsey had my back and there was not a single moment that I was scared. Would have loved to do more tours with them- will definitely be back. Thanks also for the great recommendations:)

    The guides were excellent and the tour felt very safe. We saw lots of out of the way places we wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

    We had an awesome trip. Navi, JK, Kayz and Vinh were safe, reliable and very informative riders. Our kids (11 and 13) loved it and felt safe on the back of their scooters. The best part was that we saw places we had not seen before on other walking or self guided tours. Great food selections and an all round amazing experience. Highly recommended.
