I had a list of several things I wanted to see in the city; this tour touched all of them. Tour guide was knowledgable, spoke very good english and was very thorough in sharing information. Also allowed me just enough "alone" time at each of the sites to wander on my own. Recommended to see the highlights of the city.
A good tour if you are short of time and want to see the best bits. We booked a group tour but there were only 3 of us so received the personal touch. Very helpful and knowledgeable guide. It was good to get back on the air-conditioned mini-bus and be driven between venues as the humidity was very high. A little disappointed with the lunch but it didn't spoil the day.
I recommend that this tour be taken at the start of the Ho Chi Minh visit. Our tour gave us the orientation we needed to be able to explore more on our own.
very detailed tour and very informative. well organized. fun guide
sometimes it was assumed we had knowledge about vietnam that we did not.
We had a vey small group of 5 on our city tour. Our tour guide Gem was lovely and had a wealth of knowledge to share with us. The places we visited could easily of been done on our own, but it is having someone telling you all the details and finer points of an attraction which definitely helps.
Lunch was also very enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend the city tour and thank you Gem for being such a fun and informative guide.
If wish to get an overview of the city without the hassles of doing it yourself you will find this tour gives a good snapshot of the city. at a very good price.
Vietnamese local guide was very thorough, unbiased and enlightening not only in Vietnam's history but also on the current events in the region; gave us dining recommendations, shows to not miss and other places noteworthy to visit in our short stay in Saigon before our Mekong River Cruise. Will look forward on having her as our local guide again in the future and will definitely pass this tour and guide to anyone who's palnning to visit Vietnam soon.
My family learned a lot about HCMC, it's history and people and being in a small group made our tour much better. We loved the shopping experience in Cholon where goods are cheapest.
Our tour guide speaks English articulately. He was very helpful. My husband and I had a nice time touring Ho Chi Minh City.
Great tour. Very small group - me and one other. Guide was knowledgeable and had very good english skills.
Recommend this tour. Gives a very good insight into the city and its main landmarks, as well as helping to orientate you geographically in relation to your hotel. Tour guide was excellent, friendly and very informative. Transport was comfortable and the inclusive lunch provided was most enjoyable. Pickup from our hotel was an hour late, two phone calls later determined that this was not the company, but rather the gross inconsideration of a group of tour guests.
A good introduction to Vietnam and an informative guide. Lunch should be optional.
Very good tour. Guide spoke good English, was knowledgeable. Very good
We did this tour on our first day in Ho Chi Minh and found it very informative as well as giving us and idea of what we wanted to go back and see by ourselves when we had some free time. Our guide was very knowledgable about the city and we felt we were well informed on important sites around the city.

The tour around the city was interesting and definitely worth it.
My guide Tony was very nice and flexible, he was in my hotel on time, and so nice to have someone do the driving as well.traffic was bad! I have special Interests in war museum, Tony let me took my time. Went throught it thoroughly. We went everywhere. Had a good trip.
We could barely understand our tour guide, his English was very broken and we did not enjoy all of the stops on the tour. There was a very old couple paired with us and they had a hard time moving around the busy markets which made the experience tough.
Very good trip unfortunately our guides pronunciation was not easy to understand but he tried he,s hardest. He was off course very knowledgable about Ho Chi Minh. And keen to help.
For my first visit to Saigon on my owe this was a great way for me to get my bearings and get to know the city.
Highlight - finding the local restaurant for lunch, which I went back to.
Lowlight - you could do most of these attractions by yourself just as well.
The post office was a bust - just a post office and no history, but the palace and war museum were great.
language barrier and the guide wanted to get away early
back 2 hours early
Tour covered basic spot like Notre Dame Cathedral. General Post Office, War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace, Thien hau temple and Giac.. Pagoda. Lunch included was good choice from our young lady guide. I would have preferred less temple though. not much to see (We have lots in HK already) One thing I MUST say is that the guide is very good at helping you to take good photos. We were lucky as well as there are only 2 on our group tour. But i would have love to learn more about Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City's information, history etc more. I think there should be more explanation by the guide at the Museum, we were just left to walk around ourselves. I would conclude that trip as OK but not as good as one expect. For those travellign during the weekend, this 48 hours before confirmation request will drive you VERY MAD as the so called hotline is ALWAYS engaged and you can hardly get through. I did not get confirmation and have to call many times long distance. The end is I just have to wait at the Lobby and hoping that they will come.
All the sites visited were terrific. Good overview of Ho chi Minh city. Only complaint was that my tour guide did not speak English as well as I would have liked. That is not to say that he was not extremely lovely and knew everything exceptionally. Just a little hard to understand at times.
