Meet Steve, Our Founder

Steve Mueller


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.
