    The art of fixing Vespa scooters is dying. This niche skill is a difficult one to master, especially with the increasing rarity of vintage Vespas. Our mechanic, Duy, has fixed over 1,000 Vespas! Check out this post for more info, and learn about how this scooter became legendary in Vietnam here.

Celebrity Chef Bobby Chinn on tour with Vietnam Vespa adventures

Celebrity Chef Bobby Chinn, and host of Bobby Chinn Cooks Asia on the Discovery Network, joined us for a short cruise around Saigon last week in Vespa style. The tour stopped at the colorful flower market in district 10 to buy gladiolas, gerbera daisies, orchids and other fresh flora grown in Vietnam. Bobby skillfully demonstrated the delicate art of making steamed rice skins and rolling fresh Banh Cuong Nong for a lively audience at Ben Thanh Market. The group sampled sweet coconut and casava based deserts, while Bobby was busy signing autographs and taking pictures with his fans passing in…

Glimpse of the Mekong tour.

A ride with Glimpse of the Mekong tour Go where no other tours will take you on this scenic adventure that goes beyond the concrete jungle of Saigon and onto the back roads and red dirt trails of the Delta countryside. You will cross dozens of bridges over many river tributaries, ride on a river ferryboat, cruise through a vibrant bustling riverside market, tour local cottage industries and sample some Vietnamese specialties (food and drinks). You will feel a world away from the city on this off-road ride. This tour requires an adventurous spirit and a strong backside. Experienced and…

Our night tour with Christine

Thanks Christine for this. The Saigon After Dark tour with Vietnam Vespa Adventures was an incredible way to explore the city’s food-focused nightlife in a truly local way: on the back of a motorbike. As Steve, an American expat who has lived in Saigon for more than 10 years and who owns Vietnam Vespa Adventures, explained: Saigon nightlife involves a lot of “cruising” from spot to spot: it’s essentially a tapas culture where you have a drink and a bite at each stop along the way, visiting several bars or restaurants on each night out.

A recent nice blog – Thanks a lot Sophie & Tim

Check out this nice blog from innerwesttosoutheast of Sophie & Tim We have just finished a 4 day, 3 night Vespa tour up the coast to Mui Ne with Vietnam Vespa Adventures and it was one of the best things we have ever done.

Remarkable Time Lapse of Saigon Traffic

Saigon motorcycle traffic is, deservedly, some of the most famous (notorious?) in the world, and every visitor with a smartphone or a video-enabled DSLR camera at some point cannnot resist the impulse to capture it on film. We've therefore seen a whole lot of amateur video footage of Saigon traffic. And being motorbike-riding residents ourselves, we see it every day from street level. But we've never, ever seen any video footage of local traffic as compelling as this short time lapse, posted 5 days ago to Vimeo by local expat photog Rob Whitworth. Clocking in at a little over two…

Vocal Locals

It probably goes without saying that most of the guests who join us on our tours are from out of town. But in the past few months we've found that more and more of our passengers are locals -- people who are living in Saigon and have heard of us one way or another, eager for a chance to see the city with new eyes or to entertain visiting friends and family who've exhausted the limited sightseeing options listed in the guidebooks. Nothing makes us happier than to introduce area residents, whether short-term passers-through or long-timers, to a side of…

Brand Loyalty (in which a guests gets our logo tattooed on his arm)

Tattoos have not traditionally been looked upon in Vietnam with much regard, but in the past year or so a few tattoo and piercing shops have opened in the Pham Ngu Lao ward where backpackers tend to congregate. You also see increasingly more young Vietnamese kids wearing them, which surely drives their parents berzerk (which is probably the point in many cases). In late September we received an email  from Stuart Vella, a guest on our October 2 tour to Nha Trang, who asked where he could get a tattoo in Saigon. Not unusual, in itself, but what really got our…

The French Connection

We've lately found ourselves awash in awesome post-tour videos shot and produced by guests who've joined our longer multi-day trips to either Mui Ne or Nha Trang. We don't know if this is because of the proliferation of HD-enabled smartphone cameras out there, the availability of online video editing software, or just that film-school wannabees are drawn to our tours. Whatever the reason, we couldn't be happier about it!  This latest video is surely one of the better efforts we've seen. It comes to us from Marine Bourgeois-Potel, who joined our 7-day Nha Trang adventure with a passel of French-speaking…

Over the Top: 3,000 Page Likes on Facebook

Can this be true? Just a couple of months ago -- maybe even less than that -- we were celebrating 2,000 page likes at our Facebook page. And now we check in on an otherwise ordinary Sunday morning to find that we had 98 new fans over the weekend, putting us at 3,029! We wish we could give every one of them a big group hug. Thanks everyone!

The Kids Are All Right

Last Saturday, the whole VVA team cruised out to Saigon's District 2 where we set up a booth and a dazzling display of promotional materials at The Deck for their quarterly Bazaar @ The Deck, where a horde of regional vendors decamped on the swank grounds of the riverside restaurant/bar to ply their wares in front of the local Anh Phu and Thao Dien residents. We rubbed elbows with custom tailors and adventure trek services, makers of gecko-shaped refrigerator magnets (bought one) and handbags crafted from recycled plastic shopping bags (bought two), vendors of T-shirts bearing images of historic Vietnam…

Fall Promotion for Anh Phu Neighbors!

Many thanks to everyone at Saturday's Bazaar @ The Deck who took a free Vespa ride courtesy of Vietnam Vespa Adventures! We spoke to scores of you about the half-day and evening tours we offer in Saigon as well as the multi-day trips we provide to Mui Ne, Nha Trang, and (soon) to Hue. It was a pleasure meeting you all! Many of those we spoke to Saturday accepted a coupon from us good for 15% off any of our local tours. We only regret we weren't able to give out more of those vouchers. Therefore we'd like to extend…
