There are many ways to tour Saigon from the Port of Phu My. I don’t think you could make a better choice than using Nguyen from Tours by Locals. He entertained us during the very long ride from the Port to the City, while pointing out photo opportunities along the way.

Our party of five took a private tour in a comfortable Minivan, which was great compared with being herded into a bus along with 50 strangers. Nguyen was able to move us through crowds to get the best views at the wonderful sites we visited. Being able to stop for photos wherever we wanted, or even customize our bathroom stops without having to contend with a group schedule, was priceless.

Even better, with our size group it cost less than the cattle car sized tours others were purchasing from the cruise line. We had a great experience on all four of our excursions with Tours by Locals.

Steven was an entertaining & informative guide who took us around the main sights of Saigon in a few hours & was flexible in accommodating our personal interests & requests. He was relaxed & easy to hang out with & we saw a lot in our half-day. A good way to get familiar with Saigon quickly.

Henry and Tam were great. they replied to all of my emails quickly and professionally. We will book with Vietnam Shore Excursion in the future, when we get a chance to visit Vietnam.Unfortunately we had to cancel our tour, because our cruise was not able to stop there due to Coronavirus fears. I regret not being able to meet them in person.

I would highly recommend this tour for all Muslim families traveling to Vietnam who are thinking of booking a private tour. Our tour guide, Phuong, is very accommodating and patient with our family throughout our 5-day visit to Ho Chi Minh City. The 5-day itinerary was planned out finely catered to our family needs. From the first day we met, he introduced us to some of the local customs and traditions and even taught us basic conversational Vietnamese language which was a great ice-breaker! Though there were some unforeseen circumstances that occurred, Phuong managed to quickly turn things around to ensure that we were not uncomfortable throughout the trip. There was one incident where the family van got stuck in the middle of the highway on our way to the sand dunes but he managed to find a replacement vehicle quickly so that we can reach our destination before it closes. Thumbs up! He was also quite sensitive to our family needs such as helping us find local halal food (If not muslim-friendly) places and stopping by local mosques so that we can perform our prayers while en route to our destinations. With a baby on board, the tour can be considered quite comfortable as he tries to ensure that everything runs smoothly for us. The highlight of the trip would be the opportunity for us to dine at a local Muslim home! We were actually supposed to have dinner at another Muslim restaurant but he found out that the restaurant was closed 2 months prior to our visit and thus he managed to get hold of a local Muslim who could cook for us. This was already quite late at night and we appreciated that we could feel what it was like to be a local Muslim that day. On the contrary, Phuong was the one who was interested in learning more about how Muslims live and even tried to don what the Muslim Vietnamese was wearing that day! i.e the kain pelikat & songkok! In a nutshell, we deeply appreciated everything he has arranged for us throughout the trip to ensure that everything runs smoothly and we are well taken care of. Thank you so much!!!
