The tour was a complete success! We were picked up on time in the morning and enjoyed the full day of sightseeing with our guide. There were two other people (young women) with us that day so it was a small group and that worked for us!! We all enjoyed it. I would advise anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh City and having a limited time there, take this tour...You will not be disappointed.
The Day Tour of Ho Chi Minh City is an outstanding way to get an idea of the many rich and cultural aspects of the city, especially for someone who has never been there before. As a solo traveler, I can tell you that I was deeply moved by the many images and displays in the War Remnants Museum. The experience evoked a myriad of profound emotions within me. The visits to the majestic Reunification Palace, Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the BenThanh Market were additional highlights of a well organized city tour. My visit to Chinatown (Cholon) was an unexpected treat as I was amazed by the historical and cultural sights of the area. Giac Lam Pagoda is an exceptional masterpiece that is not to be missed.
All of these experiences could not have been fully developed if it were not for my excellent tour guide, Luc Dinh. Luc was most capable and knowledgeable of all the important facts on all the places that we visited. He explained events, clarified issues, fully discussed my questions, and engaged in meaningful dialogues on a variety of subjects related to our tour. He was accommodating, charming, witty, and ever so focused on providing me the best tour. He asked me about my lunch preferences and ordered for me a quite delicious spicy seafood pho that was just to my likings! Yummy!!
Overall, the HCM City Tour was a very memorable experience. The places visited were a superb representation of the city, There was adequate time for everything and there was no rush. The sites were beautiful and my tour guide was outstanding!
This trip was very worth while. We were picked up at the hotel by our lovely guide "Linda " . There were only 3 of us together with Linda and our driver. She was very knowledgable in all areas of Vietnamese history and was very considerate throughout our day that she was covering the things we were interested in. We packed a lot into a few hours. I would definately recommend this trip if you want to get a good taste of Saigon.
Covered all the highlights! Great guide and a chance to get off the beaten track with the Chinese market and a lunch at a good but non-touristy restaurant.
We have used Viator to book day tours at various cities around the world and have never been disappointed. Again your customer service and tour guide in Ho Chi Minh was excellent.
I would like to give five star to our tour operator "Gem". I have very good time in Vietman, I like war Museum most.
Tour was exceptional because our guide was so terrific. Hong was so kind and well informed. Did not like the war museum. It is over the top anti american. Time to move on.
An enjoyable experience once again made by our excellent guide. My group was fortunate to get the same excellent guide on all our tours. A tour worth going on.
A fantastic tour! It ended up being a private tour (just my partner and I) so it was even better! Our tour guide (Gem) was so lovely. Very knowledgeable. Bring a decent amount of money as stops are made at the markets, tea/coffee shop, post office and many other stops where purchases can be made. Highly recommend this tour. So much of Ho Chi Minh is covered in this day tour. A must do tour for anyones first visit to Ho Chi Minh.
A worthwhile tour. Do it early after your arrival and then visit some of the spots again on your own, like spending more time at the War Museum.
This was excellent value and really gave an indepth introduction to the city and its history. Our guide was very thorough in her knowledge and really looked after us. Lunch was superb and as excellent value.
We had the best city tour ever. Our guide had excellent English, with lots of information to share. He also tailored the to meet our very small (3) group's needs. When I asked about folk music or dancing in the city, within a few phone calls he had arranged for us to take the riverboat tour. We were delighted.
