What people are saying about Municipal Theatre, Ho Chi Minh City

They say you will have the trip of your life. We did. Exploring Viet Nam on the back of scooters was the best way to go. In half a day, we got to see sites (from the Burning Munk Monument to the City's skyline) that would have taken us a solid day to see. We met locals and felt like locals. The guide, Alina, was very knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. The two drivers, Tu and Quan, were so accommodating ----AND very safe drivers. Thank you for making this one of the highlights of our trip. We recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Viet Nam. Chris and David

Miss Love was friendly and chatty and was an excellent guide. There were only four of us in the group which was perfect. We were taken to places we would never have found on our own and tried foods that we had never tasted before. We would certainly recommend this tour to any tourists and travellers in Saigon.

Great experience, our Guide Sunny is real sunshine. Everyone we had contact with was incredibly friendly.

Dean was fantastic. He kept the group talking, encouraged questions and shared a lot of knowledge!

Tan was a really nice guy. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun!
