Enjoy a fruit tasting while you head towards Le Quang Sung Street, a must-visit street for understanding Vietnamese life.

Wonderful Lady
I had a wonderful time with Joy. Her local knowledge is amazing and she is very personable. She made my trip fun and shared information only a local would know. Her love for culture, history and food is AMAZING!

What a Joy !
Superb tour to Chinatown and a variety of heritage sights. Really interesting insights into the history and varied cultures we encountered. Relaxed pace but no dawdling and wrap up at a coffee haunt that was way off the beaten track. How on earth did I get persuaded to sing whilst she played the piano ? Remember the Wichita Lineman, Joy ! and thanks for the tip about Josh Turner.

Amazing insightful private tour by an amazing enthusiastic and
delightful host in Joy. I'm still buzzing with all the historical,
spiritual and educational information imparted by Joy, all shared in
an intelligent and impartial manner, yet feeling like old mates after
about 5 minutes. Cannot recommend highly enough, Thank you Joy, and
thank you WithLocsls for providing this great way to discover Saigon!

Great must do tour
Feb 2020
Meeting Joy and our guided tour with her around parts of Saigon that
we would never have seen was the high;ight of our time in Saigon. We
went on a local bus to Chinatown and learned so much about the local
people, their way of life and so much more. It really helped us to
understand the city so much more and Joy was super fun to spend time
with.

Visit to Chinatown
So very enthusiastic - and perhaps a little mad - that's what you need
for an entertaining and filling day. Add very good English and you
have a winning combination. Started at the coffee shop and then hit
the markets and pagodas of Chinatown. Throughout Thien gave an
insightful and personal account of the area. Great fun. Thanks Thien

I had a brilliant time with Joy. She showed me so many places and was
very knowledgeable about her city. I felt she went above and beyond to
give me a really enjoyable authentic experience. It was a wonderful
introduction to Saigon, lovely to meet you Joy, thankyou!

Truly a “hidden treasures” tour!
This really was a hidden treasures tour - my mum & I seemed to be the only westerners around! Lam was a great guide, taking time to explain the way of life in the markets and religious sites we visited, plus Vietnamese history/life in general, and to answer our questions.

Ending the tour in a unique little coffee shop was a fun way to wrap up a great morning!

Very Interesting Half Day tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had a great 4 hour tour on our first full day in HCM city. Joy was our wonderful guide and we took a bus to Chinatown, walked the back streets, witnessed local commerce, and learned about the culture and history of the place. Visited a couple of temples and a Catholic Church, had supposedly the best coffee in an 80 year old establishment and enjoyed a snack and cold drink at a laneway eating joint.
Don't miss this!
