Vespa Adventures is a unique and novel concept; that of offering tour of the cities on the vintage Vespa motorbikes. The Vietnam Vespa Adventures saw the light of the day in the year 2007, when its founder Steve Mueller started offering exciting and unique city tours on the bike.
Fantasy Ride, Viet-style
As a traveler, you must have ridden in a cab, taxi, tour bus, personal car or any other vehicle but never a motorbike. Vespa Adventures came up with the unique idea of providing a tour of the city on a Vespa, the Italian brand scooter. The company does not only offer tours of the popular destinations but takes you to the off-beat places that are actually worth-seeing. As a pillion rider, you are made to be extremely comfortable as the seat has a backrest and padding as well. Zipping past the local markets, by lanes and main streets, you can actually know more about the local people, their food and culture and so many other things, which is not possible if you take the usual tour.
Vespa Adventures offers day trips as well as multi-day trips to several cities including Ho Chi Minh, Saigon, Mui Ne, Hoi An, Hue Hanoi and Nha Trang in Vietnam and Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in Cambodia. The tours are arranged and managed as per your convenience and requirement. The tours are personalized to give you a comfortable ride through the destinations.
The Ride of Your Life
The company follows the motto of giving the guests “The Ride of Your Life”. They take good care of the guests and make them visit the off-beaten tourist places giving them an idea of the culture, life and authentic flavor of the locals of Vietnam. When you are atop a scooter, you can meet new people, understand their traditions and culture and learn about their way of life.
You can choose from a variety of tours in the cities that you are visiting. Some of the tours that you can choose from include:
- Saigon Street Food: 3.5-hour Evening Tour
- Saigon: After Dark Tour
- Saigon: Insider’s Half Day Tour

The Vespa Scooters
The Vespa scooters used for the tour do have a story to tell. Some of these scooters have been around for more than four decades and have been refurbished to give a new look and feel.
If you fear that the vintage scooters might get you stranded someplace alone, you are mistaken. The scooters used by Vespa Adventures are well maintained, shiny and bright. While there is a large fleet of vintage Vespas, the company has also included new scooters in their fleet.
Your tour of Vietnam is incomplete without taking a short ride on the Vespa scooters. Book a tour early to avoid the rush.
