Although my visit to Ho Chi Minh city began with dropping my husband at the airport, I had a wonderful day with my guide, Soo Li. She was an absolute gem who thoughtfully worked around my limited mobility. She made sure that I did everything that I wanted and some things like a tea tasting and trip to her local temple, that I didn't know a wanted to. It is a special memory!
Our Tour was excellent. We were meet promptly at the Pier and there was just my wife and myself and a guide plus a driver. We were greeted with a bottle of water for our ride to HO Chi Minh City and were driven there. During the drive our guide was so excellent in telling us about the countryside and things that we were passing and the history of the city we were to visit. Both Guide and Driver were excellent. They went out of their way to customize our trip when we asked them. We were able to see the War Memorial which was a fantastic stop for anyone who wants to know more history of Vietnam . We also went to a factory where they were making pictures out of sea shells and delicate art work. My wife could have spent even longer here. They called it Agent Orange and we thought at first we were going to a place that had been damaged during the war but were surprised at this part of the tour. We also visited the area where most of the communications and meetings took place during the war. We were taken on a Cyclo Ride in which my wife and myself and our guide went in 3 bikes that were peddled by 3 very nice Vietnam gentlemen. We were given time to go shopping in an enclosed market which was itself an experience . I bought a couple of shirts and t shirts and to my amazement when I got home and have worn them they were made of very nice fabric. They then drove us back to the cruise ship dock. I would give a 10 plus to our guide and driver. This was a very positive experience for my wife and myself. I believe our guides name was Hai .
The problem started with a walk of almost two miles as the tour guides were not allowed at the port so we had to walk to the security gate. It was hot and we were tired before the trip started. It is a very long drive, about two hours. The rest of the excursion was nice and the guide tried very hard to be friendly and give us as much information as he could
Our tour didn’t get off to the best start as we were told our guide would be there to meet us as the boat docked. We duly disembarked promptly and looked through the 20 or so other guides waiting with their transport but ours was not there. Another guide from Bravo tours (the operator) kindly rang the office and we were assured ours was on his way. Approximately 30mins later our guide arrived on foot saying he could not get in the port (as the others had) and we had a 10 minute walk to the coach. We had a driver and a guide which worked well as we could be dropped off at one place and when we were ready to be picked up the guide telephoned and he came to pick us up to take us to the next place. The cyclo ride was fun but we didn’t go far as described. We were only on them one short journey about 10 minutes or so- not 1hr as detailed in the itinerary. We didn’t see the water puppet show which was on hourly as our guide said there wasn’t enough people for it to be on ... a decision he made 30 minutes before it started which we were confused by. The set menu lunch was at a nice air conditioned restaurant and was good quality Vietnamese food. We covered lots of ground and saw lots but we were unfortunately left disappointed by our guide himself. He was a nice young man who did have lots of knowledge but it was hard work. He spoke quietly, was difficult to understand and was not forthcoming with information - we constantly had to ask him questions.
I would definitely recommend the tour to you- I just hope you get a different guide.
Great variety of experiences on this tour. Crazy traffic, but we had a great driver. Wonderful meal at the Vietnamese restaurant. One of the highlights was the Rickshaw ride through town. Visit to the War Remnants museum brought mixed feelings. Being an American, it was sobering to see their propaganda slant to the Viet Nam war.
So much to do!! Saw lots of Saigon in a few hours. Trip from port to Saigon long 2 hours but tour guide made it interesting and informative.
Lunch at Indochine Restaurant was very excellent. Cyclo ride was fun. Time ran out before we could visit China Town. An interesting and moving excursion!
Great tour guide! Great Van Driver! My Apologies I have forgotten their names. The tour was on 24 Jan 2018 from the HAL Volendam cruise ship provided by Bravo Indochina Tours via Viator
I was very worried when we disembarked and no one was waiting for us. We had a phone-number, so called the guide. He came relatively quickly, but it was not a good start.
The guide seemed a very nice young man, but I could only understand about half of what he said. Not good at all.
The car was comfortable, and having a private tour is great, we stayed longer where things interested us and left early where they did not. The food was very good
