Hoi An is an amazing place to visit in Vietnam and the vespa tour is the best way to see what the local food & culture is really about.We did the "Streets & Eats of Hoi An" tour as a group of six (three couples) and loved it. We were greeted at our hotel where we were introduced to Ben, the leader, and the other five drivers. All very nice lads. Ben in particular was fantastic. He spoke good English and is a very interesting and likeable character. We all got along with him very well, with plenty of laughs, which gave the tour a real relaxed vibe. And the drivers made you feel quite safe. The food was delicious. Not necessarily the type of food that you would order yourself at a restaurant but more of the traditional type food that the locals would eat. Ben gave a good description of everything we ate, including the tradition behind it and how it is made and cooked. A couple of the stops had demonstrations on how to prepare and cook the food as well which we found pretty interesting. We all agreed that the vespa tour was the best night we had whilst in Hoi An. Plenty of food and drink, good company and great fun. Definitely recommended.
Steve Mueller first moved to Vietnam in 1998 and it didn’t take long for him to fall in love with the multitude of vintage Vespas that were present in the country. He bought his first vintage Vespa for 300 dollars and hasn’t looked back since then.
In 2007, Vietnam Vespa Adventures was formed and began to offer unique and exciting tours throughout the city.
Our goal is to provide our customers with luxury, unique and authentic services and tours that exemplify Asia and its culture. We offer unique, culturally immersive tours of Saigon on a daily basis, as well as multi-day packaged trips from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne and to Nha Trang.

With a management team that consists of members with long-term academic and practical tourism industry experience, it is understood how important intimacy and comfort is for a tour. Every tour is conducted on our vintage Vespa motorbikes and is personalized to cater to the guests’ needs and comforts with superior attention to detail.
As our company motto states, we want our guests to have “The Ride Of Your Life“, and we stand by what we say.

STEVE MUELLER - FOUNDER
My name is Steve Mueller and I moved to Vietnam 18 years ago from Hawaii, although I’m originally from Charleston, South Carolina in the USA. I first came to Vietnam in 1996 as a traveler, part of a one-year journey around the world. Of all the countries I visited, Vietnam lured me back to live and continue that journey. Since then, I have fallen in love with the country, the culture and especially the people. I even married one.
During my early travels in Vietnam, I saw the vintage Vespa everywhere; one of my first priorities when I returned to live here was to get some wheels, and only a vintage Vespa would do. I bought my first Vespa, a 1968 Sprint, on my third day back and it became a huge part of my life. My passion for Vespas subsequently led me to a successful restoration and export business. My Vietnamese wife, Phuong, has been a large part of that success; her savvy and local business knowledge has always provided us with an advantage. Her business acumen has also allowed us to run our other very successful business venture, Café Zoom.
Located on a busy corner, Café Zoom is the only Vespa themed café in Saigon. One of our favorite ways to relax and spend time is to gather a group of friends together at the café and explore Southern Vietnam on our Vespas. We make these trips several times a year. I’ve always enjoyed sharing the stories of our adventures with our guests at Café Zoom and almost everyone wanted to share the experience. Thus the idea for the Vietnam Vespa Adventures was born.
I am most proud of my third company, Green Energy. Designed to help protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprint, we began refining waste vegetable oil into biodiesel seven years ago. We are continuing our research and development into other arenas of biofuel production.
Kim Phuong is a co-founder of Vietnam Vespa Adventures, and also a native to Saigon. Born just after the end of the war period she grew up while the doors of Vietnam were closed.
When the doors of Vietnam opened to the rest of the world she helped her family in the Central Fresh food market after school every day , and eventually started her own stall selling fresh produce.
With the proceeds from the market she was able to open Café Zoom 16 years ago. Café Zoom is the meeting stop for Vietnam Vespa Adventures.
