“Just got back from Vietnam and had a great experience with Nam and the crew at VIETNAMRIDER®. We were able to do a custom tour that was arranged by Nam. It was very easy, we just told him what we wanted and he arranged everything. There was the option to ride solo or with a driver and most of us chose to have a driver as we had minimal experience on motorbikes. Felt safe the entire time. The whole crew spoke great English and made sure we were looked after every step of the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company to anyone!”. Wanderlusters, March 2016. Link here:

Did you know who were the first men that explored the Cu Chi tunnels – it’s the Australian soldiers not the U.S army: “Tunnel Rats – How it all began: In January 1965 a unique chapter of Australian military history was created when a young Royal Australian Engineers captain called Sandy MacGregor, encountering a Vietcong tunnel system, asked a very pertinent question – does anybody know what’s down there? Sandy’s men in 3 Field Troop answered that by being the first Allied soldiers to explore the Vietcong’s tunnels in Cu Chi – US Army protocol was to identify the entrances and destroy them – thereby creating the legend of the Tunnel Rats…” From Cu Chi, we’ll take a boat trip to cross the Saigon river to the southern central highlands, travel about 100km by the off-roads and backroads.
