I booked the tour to avoid having to brave the stressful traffic (i.e. crossing the roads), while I would have normally walked it around all by myself. The tour was well and efficiently organised to visit the main sites in HCMC. I was picked up on time from my hotel. The guide was friendly and spoke good english, while providing helpful information around the sites. I would have liked to spend a lot more time at the War Remnants museum, which deserves a good 2-3 hours on its own, although rather intense considering the materials displayed, it may be more adequate to have a couple of visits anyway, the entry fee is not expensive at all. Very pleased overall.

Booked the tour on our 2nd morning in HCMC and Timothy who was our guide was very enthusiastic and informative and it was a great introduction to this busy and amazing city. He clearly new his subject and was cheerful and engaging. We had the added advantage of being just my wife and myself on the tour so had a more personal and relaxed guided tour. It was a half day well spent and being in the morning it was not too hot.

My husband and I did this tour today with our brilliant guide “Japan”. We were met promptly in our hotel foyer by Japan who then walked us to our minivan. We picked up one other person and then set off on the tour.
The tour hits all the key spots in the city and Japan also mentioned a number of other landmarks as we drove past them. He provided expert commentary on all of the places we visited and left us a good amount of time at each one to explore.
I would highly recommend this tour!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The time and money was well spent. My tour guide, Thao, was exceptional. She offered many stories at each stop, took pictures, and was very engaged during the tour. Do this tour and ask for Thao.

I recently went on a half day City tour of Saigon. It was excellent. We had a really good tour guide “Harley”. Harley spoke fluent English. The tour was informative. I learned a lot of the history of Vietnam. Harley taught our tour group how to speak Vietnamese words correctly !

Very informative tour, war museum was very interesting but sombre for the first day in Saigon. Showed all sides of a horrific war though. Probably stayed in the presidents Palace for a bit too long, personal preference though. Timothy the guide had good knowledge and enthusiasm and the trip was well worth. Good half day experience.

A full morning to great sights and Vietnamese culture. I booked the tour the evening before and was promptly picked up at my hotel the following morning. I was surprised to learn I was the only guest on the tour. My tour guide was Vin. He is very knowledge of all the stops and sights on the tour schedule. I can't give one site that I liked the most because they were all very interesting. I suppose the Independence Place was the most impressive site. If you book this tour you will have a very nice morning.

This tour was very disappointing. We were on the bus almost 2 hours picking up people at their hotels. We missed the pagoda as we were too late and it was closed.. We ended up leaving before the local market visit as it was already almost 6 hours and would still have to drop off all the people at there hotels after the market visit . We walked back to our hotel. Would not recommend this tour!! Would recommend visiting the independence Palace and the War remnants museum on your own and not with this tour.
