Great experience. Our guide's name was Tuan, who actually fought in the war so he was able to provide not just history, but a first hand account of his experiences, which made the whole experience much more relatable and enjoyable. This was actually my second time doing this tour (had done it 4 years prior, with another company) and I actually had the same guide! He recognized me immediately but it took me a few extra minutes to put the pieces together. Was so thrilled that he ended up being my guide again!

Very easy booking, good explanation, very good tour guide (Mr.Duc), very friendly and easy going, made us feel like a family, felt very welcomed and happy. The tour structure was well organized and planned. I'm very happy to learn about part of Vietnam and to mingle around with my tour group people. I meet people from Guetamala, Japan, Germany, Korea and everyone was so friendly and kind. It made my mother and myself very so happy and excited for the upcoming adventures.

I was lucky enough to do this tour with Kain, who was so friendly and knowledgeable and funny. I was treated to several delicious foods and learnt about not only the history of Saigon but also the history of Vietnam as a whole. The tour touched on the war, on the ancient history of Vietnam and also on modern Vietnam all while feeding me as much as I could handle - definitely come to this tour with an empty stomach! Highly, highly recommended - thanks Kain!

Really enjoyable and informative day trip. Jackie, our guide was very good, he explained everything clearly and I certainly learned a lot more about Vietnams history.

The tour perfect, the guides excellent; we love the trip
