Hi, I'm Steve. I moved to Vietnam 11 years ago from Hawaii, although I'm originally from Charleston, South Carolina in the USA. I first came to Vietnam in 1996 as a traveler, part of a one-year journey around the world. Of all the countries I visited, Vietnam lured me back to live and continue that journey. Since then, I have fallen in love with the country, the culture and especially the people. I even married one.

During my early travels in Vietnam, I saw the vintage Vespa everywhere; one of my first priorities when I returned to live here was to get some wheels, and only a vintage Vespa would do. I bought my first Vespa on my third day back and it became a huge part of my life. My passion for Vespas subsequently led me to a successful restoration and export business. My Vietnamese wife, Phuong, has been a large part of that success; her savvy and local business knowledge has always provided us with an advantage.

Located on a busy corner, our café is the only Vespa themed cafe in Saigon. One of our favorite ways to relax and spend time is to gather a group of friends together at the café and explore southern Vietnam on our Vespas. We make these trips several times a year. I've always enjoyed sharing the stories of our adventures with our guests and almost everyone wanted to share the experience. Thus the idea for our vespa tours was born.

    Just got back from the Mekong Vespa trip and it truly will be a memory to cherish. Firstly the drivers are careful and experienced and the scenery is something magical. A top 5 experience of a lifetime.
