My wife and I booked a night bike ride trip on Klook in Dec-19. Mr. Ricky and Ms. Jenda, our guides and bike riders, were friendly and kind enough to let us stop at interesting places for more time, to pursue my hobby of photography. They told us stories at some less explored spots of Ho Chi Minh City, took us through the old city lanes and fed us amazing noodles, sugarcane juice and coconut water! We had a nice 3 hour time before we packed up and said bye to Vietnam and return back home to India!
The best way to experience the sights and sounds of a new city is to experience it like a local and a motorbike street food tour activity by locals does just that! We had the pleasure to be shown around by Helen our local tour guide who is exceptionally knowledgeable of Ho Chi Minh City. She gave us insights into the city that we found quite enlightening and her English was spot on! Helen and Danny cleverly weaved us through the streets of HCMC to our street food destinations where we travelled and ate just like the locals. A highly enjoyable experience!
This was an excellent experience!
