Amazing tour with an amazing guide. Tam was a pleasure to be around and she took us to the best places in the city. She was very accommodating and caring and made us feel like family. We were lucky to have a second tour with her the next day, so a fantastic experience was had in HCM city.

It is well worth booking this tour as you get to understand far more about Vietnam, the people the culture and the long history of war. It would be quite easy to visit all the sites yourself but what we learned about the Reunification Palace cannot be read in a guide book. The pick up was on time the service exemplary and the lunch that is included is really good. The guide Tai was great and his English good. I would have no hesitation in using Buffalo Tours again

This tour was excellent! We visited Ho Chi Minh during the Chinese New Year holiday season and in Vietnam it means virtually everything closes... Our guide did her best to accommodate the situation and she helped us to plan for a few other visits outside the tour as well. The tour will bring you to all the must see places in Ho Chi Minh city and I definitely would recommend it.

Great way of seeing a city, and to see it with a tour guide who was so passionate about Saigon and his amazing country. Our hotel was only a stone throw away from all sights to see, but the Chinese markets, and where we had lunch was just beautiful. Well worth tour and if possible the tour should include a building that takes you to level 49 and you see everything of Ho Chi Ming.
