Fantastic show in a beautiful old opera house. Balcony seats offer the best view of the show.

Our morning tour was great! Bravo the tour operator and Huang(?). He was so knowledgable, and it was a great introduction to the city! We loved the Imperial Palace, early morning in the park, and he even bought us breakfast because we hadn't eaten yet. We had coffee at a great chain in HCMC, an amazing lunch, and a nice cyclo to the market! Definitely our best tour we had the entire trip! Our night tour was so fun to ride the the back of scooters with the girls from Ao Dai tours, and they were all SO nice. We do wish we had stopped at more food stalls with them. (We only went to 1).. But overall this tour is so worth the money and a great day in HCMC!!

A magnificent show, with very talented acrobatic performers. The show takes place in Opera House, which you get to enjoy its architecture design before the show. If you book the ground floor (OOH) or mid-level balcony(WOW) tickets, you also get to enjoy a cup of complimentary hot/Iced tea before you enter the theater. The storyline was touching and choreography was beautiful. It gave us a perfect ending for this one-week trip to Vietnam. I'd definitely recommend to anyone visiting Saigon!

We thoroughly enjoyed this show and highly recommend it to everyone of all ages! It is an excellent show depicting life of the Vietnamese through the ages in Cirque de Soleil style. Do yourself a favour and go and see it. It is an hour long performance in the Saigon Opera House which has been restored and worth the look as well.

The tour that I had booked on Viator was actually different from the one that I was on. Our itinary was to start withTao Dan Park then visit French-style landmarks lining downtown like the Saigon Opera House, wet market, Ben Thanh market, and having pho noodle soup for breakfast. However, our tour bus did not show up until 9 am and we did not go to any of these sites. Instead, they took us to the war memorial museum, laquereware shops, Binh Tay markets which were not on our itinerary. Furthermore, the tour guide, Phuong who did not speak English well, just dropped us off at those sites and we were to wander around on our own. Needless to say, we were disappointed with the day portion of the tour.
The night food tour was wonderful, however. We had Thach and Nhi taking us around the city to show us various landmarks and new development. We had Banh Xeo Vietnamese crepe on Dinh Cong Trang which was wondeful. On our way back, it started raining. Both Thach and Nhi went out of their way to purchase ponchos to keep us dry and to get us back to the hotel on a timely manner.
