    Wonderful tour for family
    Our guide Kelvin took my 2 kids an I on a day tour that included cooking and a city tour. Kelvin is an amazing guide that made it a very fun and interesting time for us. He is knowledgeable and engaging and my kids not only had a fun time, but also learnt alot. A highly recommended tour guide and tour!

    Experts in unforgettable cultural connections, breathtaking scenery, urban culture
    I spent three weeks in Vietnam with Xin Chao Private Vietnam Tours. This company provided me with a custom-designed tour to photograph rice terraces and minority villages that went above and beyond the standard tourist itinerary. My guide Loc provided unforgettable experiences and cultural connections, in both the mountainous north, and the Mekong Delta. Loc understood my desire to see less-touristy areas. We went to places that few tourists visit, but that were completely amazing and breathtaking. Loc had an exceptional way of breaking the ice with local people in the less-visited areas. The people were unfailingly friendly, and many times invited us into their homes for tea. Hanoi, with its Old Quarter, was vibrant with food and culture. Saigon is Loc's home, and he is proud to show it off. This is the second time I have used Xin Chao Private Vietnam Tours in my visits to Vietnam. Loc and his team far exceeded my expectations. The enthusiasm they have for touring (and photography!) really is extraordinary. If you have a desire for adventure, need to find a less-touristy cultural connection, or see stunning scenery, I highly recommend this company.

    Amazing Tour of HCM City and the Mekong Delta
    I booked a tour in Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta as part of my honeymoon itinerary. Pre-Arrival: Loc was very responsive and easy to work with in developing a customized itinerary to optimize our time there. After Arrival: We were picked up at the airport as expected and whisked around Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta over the course of 4 days. Anh was our tour guide, she was fun and she provided great information throughout our tour. We always knew what to expect and out itinerary for each day. In HCM, We did an awesome food tour and visits Cu Chi Tunnels (highly recommend!), War Museum, Post Office, and Notre Dame Cathedral. In Mekong/Can Tho, we visited the floating market, a night market, had a local lunch and had a traditional boat ride along the river. We never felt rushed or like we couldn't make ad hoc suggestions for what we wanted to do. It was a wonderful experience and I can't want to return to Vietnam. I will be booking another tour with Xin Chao.

    Excellent daytrip with Ms Hang
    A full day with Hang (Cathryn) & Mr Handsome to the Cuchi tunnels and shooting range. Learned a lot of great detail from Ms Hang about Saigon & Vietnam history. Hang is a personal, fun & knowledgeable tour guide I enjoyed being with for this day.

    The best tour guide I have ever engaged!
    Superb experience with the tour guide and I enjoyed every moment. He had made it so much more easy to tour solo at a new city and I would give a 10star if I could!

    Our 5th Tour with Xinchao!
    Our bespoke tour was extra special with Loc himself and partner Tiffany travelling with our family of 4. We were treated like family and Loc helped us when our son had a fall. We got some hidden wonderful views in Tam Coc, combed Yen Tu mountain with a group of monks whom Loc was chatting with. Whilst it wasn’t 100% perfect, we had a memorable experience going off the beaten track. Best part was learning the language and immersing in the local culture which we wouldn’t otherwise have known if we travelled by ourselves!

    Great fun.
    Had an awesome evening guided by Tim and Catherine who were wonderful fun and very knowledgeable about the food we were eating. They also gave us some great insights into life in Vietnam. Highly recommended.

    Best Private Tour Company in Vietnam!
    Loc from Xin Chao was fantastic from our first contact. He made a great effort to establish what our interests were and what we wanted to get from our time in Saigon. We spent several days on private tours, around the city, in the countryside & national parks, and a “foodie” city tour which was the highlight of our time there. He was punctual and organised, very clear with his explanations, and went to great effort to show us the sights and culture of Saigon, and how the people there live. We wouldn’t hesitate to call Loc again if we were going back to Saigon. We also spent some time with Linda from Xin Chao when we were in Hanoi, which was equally awesome! Whether for a single day tour or a whole customised private trip, Xin Chao Is the way to go!

    Excellent tours
    This is the second time we have visited Vietnam and the second time we have used this company. We had three tours with the company, two in and around Hanoi and one around Hoi An. All three tours were excellent. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and both spoke excellent English. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone visiting Vietnam.

    Always an unforgettable experience
    This was our fourth time booking a tour of Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels with Xin Chiao Tours and as usual it was unforgettable. Our tour guide Ana (Trang) was very knowledgeable about these sights and Vietnam’s culture and history in general. She was easy to talk to and funny, which made our trip trust much more enjoyable. Thank you Ana and Xin Chiao Tours for this experience. I’m sure we I’ll be back for more.

    Private tour for excellent price
    My husband and I used this company for a 2 week private tour of Vietnam from Ho Chi Minh City all the way to Hanoi and beyond. It was an unforgettable experience that was surprisingly affordable. We learned about Loc and his tour company through friends who had booked a similar tour a couple of years prior. Every detail was taken care of. The only thing we had to do was book our flight to Vietnam and Loc took care of all the rest. His company booked all of our hotels, tours, intra-country flights and drivers. He was even waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. We experienced things we never would have found on our own. We went to restaurants that didn't have a single westerner in them; we had lunch at a restaurant in someone's backyard in the Mekong delta; we went to a small fish market in central Vietnam where we watched fish being bought right from the boat. We booked the mid-tier package so we were shocked at how nice all of the hotels were. They all had large, modern and comfortable rooms with excellent AC. We had a motorbike tour to 4 different restaurants in Ho Chi Minh, a country-side motorbike tour in Hoi An, saw countless temples and pagodas, hiked through the jungle, and even did an overnight cruise in Halong Bay. We had many encounters with locals thanks to Loc. He knew that our goal was to experience the culture so that's how he targeted our tour. He will customize each tour according to your preferences. I really do want to emphasize that this tour was surprisingly reasonably priced. We encountered a group taking a bus tour that followed the same basic path as our tour. Their tour was two days shorter and most of the excursions were "extra". The base cost of that tour was the same price as our longer, all inclusive private tour. Book any tour that Xin Chao Private Vietnam Tours offers. Each tour is meticulously planned and executed. You will not find a better tour operator.

    Beautiful North Vietnam tour
    We had a wonderful time during our tour. Our guide, Linda, was very accommodating, kind, and flexible. We appreciated her patience with all our questions about the country and logistics. Linda's translation helped us learn and enjoy our time in Vietnam. Our driver was great as well. Linda and our driver were always on time and flexible when we wanted to change the schedule. Loc, thank you for pointing us towards Pu Luong and Ninh Binh. Our families enjoyed learning more about our culture.

    Scooter and Food Tour
    Had a fun-filled evening exploring the city with very informative guides Tea and Tom. Such a great way to experience Ho Chi Minh city on a scooter like the locals. We enjoyed great restaurants during the tour, too. 🛵😎

    Fun Scooting around Saigon
    I almost never leave reviews like this, but my Xin Chao tour was so memorable that I just have to relate what a blast it was. The guide took me through narrow alleys, through colourful flower markets, and showed me Parts of Saigon which I would never have seen on my own. My guide (his name was Andy) spoke fluent English and was so enthusiastic and keen that I see and enjoy the city the way he does. Xin Chao is run by a delightful and experienced tour operator named Bao Loc, and he runs a loyal band of guides who clearly love working for him. I’ll be back sometime for more tours, as they are such fantastic value for money.

If you are visiting Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) you must take a tour by scooter! It is amazing how a city with 6 million scooters and little traffic direction can function efficiently but it does! Seeing the city from the back of the scooter is the best way to be a part of the city, smell the smells and see the sights. My driver Andy was the best at navigating the heavy traffic at night seamlessly! He also was so knowledgeable about Vietnam current facts and history and his English was excellent! If you are even considering a tour from a scooter, you must do it! It will be an unforgettable experience!

My wife rode with Nam and I rode with Hang for an evening scooter adventure departing from our hotel. They surprised us with an exciting ride to local restaurants and a coffee/dessert shop. The traffic is wild in Saigon but these very experienced riders (drivers?) made us feel comfortable and safe.

This was such a fun way to get around and we highly recommend it. Don't get stuck in traffic in a taxi. Make the journey fun and hop on. They have helmets for you, too.

Pham khan and My Duyen gave us a most awesome kaleidoscopic tour of HCMC. We hit a lot of foodie highlights, as well as a sample of the night lights and pulse of this exciting city. They explained everything well, were very safe drivers, and just plain pleasant company. We had a great time, felt safe, and really felt like we’d had a whiz-by tour of so much of this city of 12 million.

First time using the Xin Chao tours and it won't be my last if I return to Vietnam. Did the half day private Saigon tour but not on a scooter. Travelled around by car with some walking inbetween. Everything was organised and catered to our interests prior. Met at the airport and had a great time seeing important sights around Saigon and eating delicious local food. Andy, our tour guide, was lovely and we had a great time with him. After the tour, we were dropped back off at the airport. I would highly recommend this tour service. It's good value for money and very reliable.
