I have tried to propose the Saigon Vespa tour many times for my client back in my old company, direct clients (tourists) as well as travel agents/tour operators, but I received the same respond all the time: “why should we choose Vespa tour? We produce Vespa in Italy, why should we use it in Vietnam? So NO”. I admit it, the name Vespa tour really causes misunderstanding, to Italians mostly. But if you take a look deeper, you will find that’s a very profound product.
Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) is a modern city, but no lack of culture. The point is, their key point doesn’t concentrate in one place like 36-street-old-quarter in Hanoi, they shattered around from district 1 to district 5 where locate the big Chinese town Cho Lon. So it’s almost impossible for a one afternoon walk, especially under the heat of afternoon. You need a mean of transportation that can permits you to look and to enjoy the place in proper way. We already have our own 2 hour cyclo tour for a very broad and classic excursion like that; and Vespa tour, is another not-to-miss, to take a closer look to every single interesting site. Let’s check out 3 reasons why the excursion is so special:
- First, of course, the Vespa. The name Vespa represents a culture, and for a motor tour, Vespa really is a good mean. Imagine a motor tour with Honda, or Suzuki – not so cultural right? And every other supplier can buy hundreds of Honda motorbike; but a Vespa, an old Vespa, not everyone can have many of them. And they (the Vespa tour supplier) have total about 80.
- Second, the personnel. They really have very well trained personnel. Drivers are not allowed to talk to tourists, one reason is for safety, another, more important, is that not all driver can speaking English (or other language) fluently, and their point of view might cause misunderstanding to tourists. That leads us to the tour guides. Yes, every excursion like that needs a good tour guide. The tour guides they provide are not professional, but they’re officer in the NGOs, with very fluent English, high-educated, and most of all, they understand what foreigners want to know to provide them a view as a Saigoneer, not as a pro-tour guide.
- Third, the visiting sites: the supplier of Vespa tour understand their client: Western tourists, so they created a very special route: from the place where many Saigoneer gather to show off their bird and share their hobby, to the very-Vietnamese restaurant where tourists can eat in Vietnamese way – very delicious indeed, and the exclusive Zoom café by Vespa tour
I hope those 3 reasons are enough to prove you that the excursion is value your money, and mostly, my descriptions would help you to convince your client to choose the Vespa tour.
