A glimse of Sai Gon by Vespa with its hide-away characters/cultures that are not normally seen on classic tourist route is an exciting experience and a great alternative way to explore the Sai Gon city. Either ride on the back of our Vespa, or if you are qualified, you can drive your own wheels. We require that you have good recent experience driving a scooter or motorcycle.
