Fantastic way to see HCMC and highly recommend this tour. Our guide picked us up promptly in the morning and we drove via AC car to all the sights. Due to rain we had to skip the park and pho breakfast but the guide more than made up for it with local coffee stop (Vietnamese coffee is SO good!)
What a great day!
In the moening we were picked up at our hotel, and taken all around the city by private bus. Trung our guide was amazing, so knowledgable and friendly. We did the main sites and had a great lunch, high recommended.
The evening food tour was awesome, you hop on a moped with a driver and tour the city where the real people eat. You sample food in varying districts, eating with the locals. All diets catered for. Tien our guide was fantastic and so much fun. There is no better way to see the city on its main transport the moped.
This tour we highly reccomend, for orientation, culture, fun and see the real Vietnam
Brilliant guide thoroughly enjoyed the experience ,would recommend !
I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Saigon for the first time. Our tour guide, NT, was wonderful! I really enjoyed that we had plenty of time at each point of interest. My favorite stop would have to be the Central Post Office. NT also helped with purchasing the postcards and stamps!
The city sightseeing tour was good. However, I can't rave enough about the Night Food Tour on the scooter. My guide was Ivy, and she was fabulous. Riding in the city on a scooter is a once in lifetime experience. The journey was safe and a helmet was provided. All the food sampling and eating was out of this world and having the opportunity to actually prepare one of the food items with the local vendor was awesome. This tour went above and beyond my expectations. This is a must do tour. Thanks Ivy. Loved the Night Food Tour.
We have 2 guides (Mr Wang for day tour and Ms Ha for night motobike tour). They both already did great job and gave us an unforgettable sight-seeing trip and many cool places for food-tasting of the Ho Chi Minh City
This was an excellent tour to see Ho Chi Minh City. The Tour Guide Mr Duc was excellent, very friendly and speaks very good English. As I was with my wife and 5 year old girl, Mr Duc took extra care in our safety and planned the trip accordingly. The Vespa(motorbike) ride in the city was the best experience. I was skeptical whether it would be safe for my 5 year old girl, but with Mr Duc's safety oriented attitude, we made the right choice and my 5 year old girl thoroughly enjoyed herself. We saw most of the sightseeing locations and were introduced to very good restaurants for our breakfast, lunch and dinner. The next time we visit Ho Chi Minh, I would ask for Bravo Indochina Tours and request for Mr Duc.
Amazing tour and crazy experience with some lovely food and great English speeking guide. Highly recommend that tour.
Our morning tour was great! Bravo the tour operator and Huang(?). He was so knowledgable, and it was a great introduction to the city! We loved the Imperial Palace, early morning in the park, and he even bought us breakfast because we hadn't eaten yet. We had coffee at a great chain in HCMC, an amazing lunch, and a nice cyclo to the market! Definitely our best tour we had the entire trip! Our night tour was so fun to ride the the back of scooters with the girls from Ao Dai tours, and they were all SO nice. We do wish we had stopped at more food stalls with them. (We only went to 1).. But overall this tour is so worth the money and a great day in HCMC!!
The day tour was great. The night food tour didn't happen due to confusion about our decision to not ride on a moped. The guide was excellent.
Most interesting to see this amazing city and survive the traffic on motorbike and cycle. Especially enjoyed the night food experience and appreciated my guide's recommendation to see th AO group performance.
My guide was very obliging and tried to see to my comfort and interests. He should develop more commentary about the sights of Saigon, but in general was informative and pleasant with reasonable English.

The tour that I had booked on Viator was actually different from the one that I was on. Our itinary was to start withTao Dan Park then visit French-style landmarks lining downtown like the Saigon Opera House, wet market, Ben Thanh market, and having pho noodle soup for breakfast. However, our tour bus did not show up until 9 am and we did not go to any of these sites. Instead, they took us to the war memorial museum, laquereware shops, Binh Tay markets which were not on our itinerary. Furthermore, the tour guide, Phuong who did not speak English well, just dropped us off at those sites and we were to wander around on our own. Needless to say, we were disappointed with the day portion of the tour.
The night food tour was wonderful, however. We had Thach and Nhi taking us around the city to show us various landmarks and new development. We had Banh Xeo Vietnamese crepe on Dinh Cong Trang which was wondeful. On our way back, it started raining. Both Thach and Nhi went out of their way to purchase ponchos to keep us dry and to get us back to the hotel on a timely manner.
Save your money. The confirmation documents we received from the tour company said we would be picked up at 6:30, and to be ready 15 minutes early. We were. When no one showed up by 6:45, we had the hotel call the contact phone number provided. The person they contacted said we would be met at 7:45! When the hotel clerk explained that our paper said 6:30, the tour comany hung up on him. The tour guide did show up at 7:45, and was unaware of the 6:30 issue. After that, we decided to just try to enjoy the day and have a good tour. The tour guide was a very nice gentleman who tried to make sure we saw everthing but his English is very hard to understand. In addition, he didnt give us hardly any information on the sites that we couldnt have gotten out of our guidebook. He dropped us at the War Museum for 2 hours, for us to see on our own. That was way too much time, and after that we got his mobile number so we could call him if need be. In the reunification palace, his information was the same as the info on the self tour signs, which included English. The night portion of the tour was an experience, though. We went through the city, at rush hour, in cyclos. He took us to an eatery where locals have dinner, and ordered a variety of items. Most was very good. We would like to have had more input on the dishes ordered. After dinner, the cyclo rides continued through the city, which is beautiful when lit up at night. He took us to another restaurant to try another local dish, but there were no seats, and since we were full from the previous stop as we did not not know/were not told that we would be going to another restaurant, we said we didnt want to stay. If we had this to do over again, we would see the city sights on our own in the daytime everyting is withing walking distance and just book a night food tour.
Very poor, no one turned up to collect us and the telephone numbers given to us were not working, our hotel tried to contact them too with no luck either. 3emails sent over a week ago and still no response but we did get this rate the tip email. Very disappointing
