Ho Chi Minh City Discovery Small Group Adventure Tour

Depart from your centrally located hotel in a luxurious, air-conditioned coach and begin your explorative tour at Giac Lam, an impressive 17th-century pagoda situated in the heart of the city. After hearing of the structure’s intriguing history, continue to Chinatown in order to immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere of markets like Cholon and Binh. 

Next, absorb the sacred atmosphere of the Thien Hau temple, a revered structure built in the 19th century and dedicated to Thien Hau, goddess of the seafarers. Head next to the Ben Thanh Market to peruse stalls bursting with exotic produce; practice your language skills and hear of the market’s history from your knowledgeable guide. 

Revitalize with a traditional Vietnamese lunch and then venture to the War Remnants Museum to see a selection of antique military equipment. Marvel at enormous exhibits like a UH1-Huey helicopter and a F5A fighter in the courtyard and then stroll to the Reunification Palace to see an impressive tableau of Vietnamese architecture. 

Admire the French colonial facades of Notre Dame Cathedral, the Opera house and the General Post Office before bidding your guide and group farewell in this central location. Continue exploring the area independently or take a taxi back to your hotel with assistance from your guide.

Linda was the best guide you could ever ask for. She was very helpful with dining and shopping recommendations. Our group was small which allowed everyone enough time at all of our stops.

My wife and I really appreciated this tour. Our guide, Ashley, of Urban Adventures, is very knowledgeable and has a very good personality. We really appreciated our day with her. Our driver was very kind too. I believe that this tour is a must if you plan to visit Ho Chi Minh City.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Was booked as small group - which consisted of me!! First rate! Ms Linda was a wealth of knowledge, anecdotes and interesting information.
Great lunch venue, Pho to die for!! Really enjoyable tour, saw all I wanted to see and because it was one to one we finished earlier than expected but pa led a whole lot into just a few hours. Well worth it, especially if you have limited time in HCMC.
