Linh was our guide on the "Other than Pho" tour. Her sharing of her personal history of leaving Saigon as a child and returning as an adult made it even more interesting and meaningful. We ate at 3 great places, including one that was down an alley and felt like eating with the locals. Our Vietnamese coffee tour was excellent and even those in our party who are not big coffee fans loved the special drinks and education. We also appreciated having the time to shop and seeing a real working market. Having an air conditioned van rather than scooters meant we were cool and safe between stops, which was even better. We would definitely choose this tour or others by the same company. Thanks Linh!

We only had half a day to spend with Linh and wished we could spend more time with her. We learned about her family and background. We visited the Chinese market and then a resident of a beautiful old French building. She invited us into her home she shared her life story and we saw her apartment. We then visited the home of two artists and learned about their lives and saw their amazing art. It is so wonderful to get to meet the people that make up the real Saigon. Linh knew that we had not had a chance to visit Central Vietnam and took us to lunch at a restaurant that served this cuisine. This tour was the highlight of our visit to Saigon. We will definitely recommend the tour to others and will do a tour with her again when we return. The tour is customizable to your interests. No two tours are exactly the same. You need to arrange and share your interests with Linh prior to the tour.

My daughter Rachel arranged this tour for she and I and we had a wonderful day. Linh tailors the tour to your interests. We saw a huge old local market and then visited a family home in the Chinese quarter where we talked, through an interpreter, to a lovely lady about her family and its history. This was followed by a wonderful authentic lunch and then onto a coffee house where we not only sampled the goods but got a talk about the developing coffee growing here. All in all a really great day.

Linh's Hidden Saigon tour introduced us to the creative sides of the city. We visited an artist in his studio, strolled around a market, talked to the founders of a micro brewery and tested the beer, looked at contemporary art in a nearby gallery and then had an amazing dinner. The whole tour is planned in a way that will make you feel welcome and comfortable. It takes half a day and makes you understand the city from a perspective unlike your regular sightseing tours. The expirience is rich and deep and Linh as a guide is extremly knowledgeable and very hospitable.

Linh did a phenomenal job on our recent Hidden Saigon tour. She specifically tailored the tour to match our interests and introduced us to people/food/places that we would not have found on our own. It was one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences from our trip to Vietnam. We would definitely recommend any Hidden Saigon tour.
