“Absolutely amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

I've got information about these guys from a friend of mine. I've had my tour today with a lovely guy named An. He's been waiting for me at my hotel and we've promptly jumped on his scooter. Over the rest of today we've been everywhere - missing touristy spots (on my request) but enjoying an overlook at the real Vietnamese day instead! We went for a few coffees, hanged around in the local park, found the shelter from the rain in a Buddhist temple and even cooked together at An's place. We were joined by An's girlfriend who was also very nice and talkative! At the end of the day, I've been teleported to my hotel. Great! I have happily donated to the Hot Pot - they deserve all the money they can get. Forget poor Lonely Planet experiences, go for the real thing! :-)

Thank you for your kind words. I am sure that Mr. An enjoyed being your companion just as much, providing all the experience you had on the tour day, i believe that you have got a new friend in Saigon. We hope to see you again some day.

“Experience Saigon with a local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

A friend recommended Saigon Hotpot and our guide was Tuyet, a local economics student. It was good to see the city with someone who lives and studies there, and we had some interesting conversations about today's Vietnam as well as the history. A really good introduction to the city with some inside knowledge of real life.

“Fabulous tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We found Siagon Hotspot on the internet whilst searching for tours in Siagon,and am so glad we did.
Our guide Anna was very friendly and informative and happy to answer any questions during our full day tour of the city.
Most of the tour was spent on foot but the pace was easy and not at all texting. Overall a great experience during our time in Siagon.

A university student picked us up at our hotel. Showing us around, telling us the history of Vietnam and taking us to a great traditional Vietnamese restaurant.
He was so professional.
We had lots of fun with him.
Thanks for treating us so good.
