We recently had a terrific tour of Saigon - we were only there one day, unfortunately, as it is a beautiful city, with wide boulevards and horrendous motor-cycle traffic. Our tour guide, Thi of Smile Tours, was most professional and knowledgeable and the whole day ran smoothly and we were able to see most the highlights in the short time... More

Little dubious about this trip but it turned out to be a real "eye opener" I honestly didn't realise how big the divide was between rich and poor.People manage to "live" on so little and then there are the rich people in their flashy cars ! unbelievable ! It made me ashamed to belong to a country where so many... More

We took the walking tour hoping to go off the track so as to speak, and we certainly did that. Adam's knowledge of the city and it's unseen life was excellent. This was well worth the walk. Markets that you would never find were visited, and gave us a real insight into local life. Adam is an excellent host for... More

Adam taught me how to maximize my cameras features and how to take great shots, what to look for to allow the picture to tell the story I want it to. In addition, we went to some interesting places and learned a bit about the local culture. This is fun and educational and the tips I'm using for the rest... More

Returning to Vietnam with friends making their first trip the first thing on our list of things to do was to take the Urban Kaos tour. Just as good second time around, new sites seen and fascinating to see the changes that have taken place in the 3 years since our last visit. The boys are great fun to spend... More

Picked up right on time by Mr Ut outside our hotel for a behind the scenes tour of Saigon. We were witness to some absolutely remarkable locations this city has to offer. Mr Ut is an extremely knowledgable and friendly guide who really made us feel comfortable from the outset. I would recommend this tour to even the seasoned Vietnam... More

Although I was first attracted to Saigon Unseen by the name of the tour company and the lure of getting off the regular tourist path, what really appealed to me was the Motofoto-the idea of seeing interesting things and improving my photography skills. I have to say my morning with Adam was the best time I've had in Saigon other... More
