Best way to start a vacation to Ho Chi Minh City. Got to hear about the history and how to get around the city. Tour guide knew all the answers to questions we asked, even those not pertaining to the tour.

This tour was excellent. It was a very busy day but it included everything that we most wanted to see in and around Ho Chi Minh, from the Cu Chi tunnels and War Museum to the French architecture.
Our tour guide, NT, was extremely knowledgable about all of Vietnam's ancient and more present history and was extremely lovely and happy to have us ask him all of our questions. It was so great to have such an enthusiastic tour guide.

Additionally, NT took us to an incredible Vietnamese Restaurant for lunch, which was included in the price of the tour and the best Vietnamese food we had throughout our whole trip.

I would highly recommend that you book this tour ASAP, it was such an easy way of seeing all the important places, in a great amount of time and for such good value for money!

We love NT!

This was an excellent tour. The guide was very informative and gave a good insight into the places visited. On the trip around, I could see the contrast between the busy shopping areas and the quieter areas with elegant buildings. I appreciated the time allocated to browse through the War Remnants Museum and learn some of the history involved. Thank you for the delicious lunch.

This was on our first day, be aware that the weather is warmer in the afternoon so if you are not used to warmer weather go for the morning tour. We are from Darwin so the weather is the same. It was a good way of getting orientated with the area and our hotel . Loved the catholic church, wished I could have gone inside. The Pho noodles were wonderful.

Our tour guide Bella was in time. She was responsive to what we wanted to see. She spoke excelent English and was very knowledgeable. The car and driver were crucial to our tour. My husband is a returning veteran of the Viet Nam war and this was very special for him.

A very interesting afternoon spent with a very knowledgeable guide, visiting all the main sights of the city from temples to palaces, a Laquerware Art Gallery and the War Museum, which will forever leave visions of a horrific war, ending with a Vietnamese local meal.

This tour was a very good introduction to District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City and a small part of the Chinese district. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had very good English language skills. All-in-all, a good tour.

Was very good, Private Guide (Bao) was very good but I felt the tour could have done more "sightseeing" and an explanation of where we were and what we were seeing. The 2 hours at the War Remnants Museum was quite overwhelming, the Markets were fascinating, the visit to the Chinese Temple very interesting.
The short visit to the Lacquer Ware Factory was a surprise but very beautiful items on display (and available for purchase) It was an interesting morning and did give a very brief overview to Ho Chi Minh.

tour guide heavily pregnant. She had tour am. felt that she lacked enthusiasm and energy. Also felt 'rushed '.
No time to spend in post office.

This tour was just ok. Nothing really special. I think the tour guide was more interested in our buying from the local stores for her commissions. Our tour started at 1.30 and by 3.15 she was done. She took us for lunch which lasted till 4.30 and dropped us in the city.

Felt very rushed, guide had a very heavy accent which made it almost impossible to understand what he was saying.. Therefore, didn't get any of the history or narrative as we toured the city... Not keen, on being taken to a workshop making tourist products.. Felt obliged to buy something and being left alone in a local restaurant to fend for our selves at lunch time didn't make this tour any better... Hire a taxi and save your money by doing it yourselves..

I dont expect you to publish this - it's really for your information.

Tour guide was good - picked me up on time etc but having experienced it, the content was strange. We went to the palace which was interesting - the cathedral is under renovation so that was skipped and had a look at the post office at which point the guide said we were running out of things to do as scheduled so he took me to the War Remnants Museum which was very interesting. From there to the market where I lasted about 3 minutes. In my view its not worth the visit - a large building with hundreds of small stalls all selling the same stuff. The temperature inside was so high it was unbearable. And then to the strangest part of all. I had not noticed when booking that the program included dinner. I should have mentioned I was the only one on the tour. It was 4.45 pm, hardly dinner time but despite my protest I was taken to a restaurant where I selected the smallest and safest item I could - deep fried spring rolls - ate half on my own and then asked to leave.

I have used your tours often in many different locations and content and presentation have always been of high order - I recommend you to others. This one was an aberration so I think it needs some work - definitely get rid of the meal if nothing else.
