This tour is definitely worth doing if you are short of time in HCMC. We personally had 6 days there and felt we could have had longer and got more information if we had done some of the sights ourselves as they are all within easy reach of the city. The Reunification Palace has guided tours regularly which are free of charge. Having said that, we were taken to places on this tour which we would not have seen had we not been with a guide which is why it is worth doing.

It's tough to tour Saigon on your own, and this trip allowed us to see so much in a short space of time. Our guide was excellent, and the transport was good. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.

We had a private guide who spoke very good English and was very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.

This trip is well worth doing. It is far better having a private guide and driver, as you can choose how long you wish to stay in the various areas of the trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas that we went to.

This was an excellent tour; I saw some of the historical aspects of Saigon. I had a driver and a tour guide all to myself.

The Full city day tour was not a full day? Presumable as we were a smaller party but couldnt hal feeling a little 'duped'. The guide was terrific and very knowledgebale.

Not bad but you could do this by walking around yourself. Not enough time at the war museum. Guide was good and tried to include local experience into the tour as well.

The Reunification Palace was the only part worth it in the tour. The War Remnants Museum and its propaganda drove my wife and me to the nearest cafe after 10 minutes in the place. I thought the tour guide could have provided us with more information about the city, its history and better views than the some of the places he took us . He also dumped us off about two hours early.

The itinerary was not very good and not value for money. The shopping trip is a waste!

Our tour guide was very friendly but we were not given information on the sights and were certainly rushed through some of these. We were led to believe it was a 10 hour tour but we were back in our hotel in 5 hours. Very expensive for what we got and feel we could have done it on our own.

I feel the tour was lacking in parts, our guide, while knowledgeable failed to make the tour engaging, entertaining or educationally in-depth. There was nothing exciting about the tour and we felt we could have done most of it ourselves with a map and lonely planet book, although having the transport for the day was definitely worth having. Overall it was expensive for what we got.
