tour-package-sg Private Motorbike Tour in Saigon

Is it your first time in Saigon, or are you a returning visitor looking for more diverse experiences in Vietnam's most bustling city? Finding a quality tour package in Saigon is the first challenge every tourist has to face due to the abundance of the service, ranging in different price points and reputations, so make sure to jot down these useful notes when choosing the best tour service for your stay in Saigon.

Decide What You Look for in a Tour Package in Saigon

Since there is a great variety of tours in Saigon you can choose from, make sure you can pick the one that can fit all of your needs or is flexible enough to tailor to your requirements. Here are a few vital factors to consider:

How many people are in your team: It is essential to take into account whether you are a solo traveler in Saigon or on a trip with your family and friends. Regarding traveling in groups, a professional tour guide that can take care of various customers is crucial, because even though there are many people on tour, everyone wants to have their personal needs met. However, the real question lies in whether you’d need a tour guide when traveling solo in Saigon. Our recommendation is to find a local private tour who knows by heart the nooks and crannies of Saigon for authentic experiences and insights into the local lifestyle.

The group size matters when booking a tour package

How would you like to explore Saigon: Saigon is never short of sights to see and experiences to enjoy despite being a young and economy-centric city. Figuring out how you would like to spend your limited on a Saigon tour is another determining factor when choosing the best tour package in Saigon.

Touring the famous attractions in Saigon: This is a great way to have a general idea of what makes up Saigon’s resounding reputation while learning about the ups and downs of the city throughout Vietnam’s history. Generally, it’d take a full morning to explore all of Saigon’s main places of interest, and make sure you find a tour package that allows you time to absorb in the attraction as well as taking memorable pictures instead of just brushing over everything.

Going off-the-beaten-track: In case you’re looking for a Saigon tour experience like no other, step off the tourist trails and observe the cultural pieces that complete the picture of Saigon. The challenge of finding the best tour package in Saigon for this particular activity is that the tour guide must be not only eloquent in the city’s history and culture but also able to converse with you well in English.

Tasting Saigon’s cuisines: Instead of having local specialties, Saigon is actually a hodge-podge of signature cuisines from other Vietnam's cities and areas. Therefore, a tour specially designed around Saigon's food is much needed if you’re a foodie, and the best tour package in Saigon will take you to restaurants and shops loved and frequented by locals rather than the touristy spots. Food tours are among the most popular tour packages in Saigon, because how can anyone turn down on the appeal of Vietnamese food?

Value for Money - the Best Tour Package in Saigon

As exciting as a tour package may seem, don’t jump to the conclusion just yet. Price is not always the determinant to the quality, and a quality tour package in Saigon must have the following inclusions:

Safety: whatever types of the tour you book (motorbike tour, car group tour, food tour), safety always comes first. The best tour package in Saigon should give clear instructions for your first time trying a new activity in Vietnam, i.e. sitting on a motorbike, or be able to ensure the food safety of the food tour. Moreover, check carefully if the price for the tour also includes insurance coverage.

Service: the best way to learn about the service quality is to look up the reviews in Facebook groups or Google ratings. You can also learn a lot about the tour company’s quality and professionalism by how they communicate with the customers.

Customization and Experience: The best tour package in Saigon puts the travelers’ experience first, and as for great customization options, we’d recommend signing up for a private tour in Saigon. This is to say, you can skip any spots on the tour if you’re more interested in other places, or joining a food tour without any worries about your dietary restrictions, as a private tour package is hugely flexible.
