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 moved to Vietnam in 1997 from Hawaii, originally from Charleston, SC. He travelled around the world, and of all the countries he visited, Vietnam lured him back because he fell in love with the land, the culture and especially the people, to the point that he even married Kim Phuong!
Steve started restoring and exporting vintage Vespas, but later he decided that he wanted to keep the Vespas in Vietnam as part of its heritage. He wanted to share his love for this part of the world with others so the idea of Vespa Adventures came to light and they started running tours in 2007.
Steve gives a large part of the credit for his success to his wife’s savvy and local business knowledge.
Kim Phuong Mueller
Kim Phuong is the co-founder of Vespa Adventures, and also a native to Saigon. Born after the end of the war period she grew up while the doors of Vietnam were still closed.
During her childhood, she helped her family in the Central Market after school every day, and eventually started her own stall selling fresh food and vegetables.
With that knowledge and experience, she opened Café Zoom in 1999, a place for Steve and Kim’s friends and other world travellers to relax, share their stories and enjoy amazing food and drinks, and later it became the starting point of all the tours in Saigon, and the operations center of Vespa Adventures.
