Good orientation tour

Nice competend Lady Guide named "Nhi". We gor a good orientation to the City. Everything was fine except the market in chinatown. Because of Reunification Day (30th. April) the Binh- Tay Market was closed as nearly all shops around. There was dirt, smell and disgusting rubbish to be seen/ smell! It is every year on the Same date. So why not change the itinery in this point? "Nhi" did a very good job and the tour can be recommended.

A very good introduction to Saigon

After getting over the initial glitch of the local tour booking agency not advising the guide to pick us up, we started the tour about an hour late. This is the only reason the tour did not get a 5 star rating, as our guide was excellent and the itinerary very good - the right amount of time in each place and a lovely lunch thrown in.

Our guide Nam and our driver Đức took us on a wonderful tour through HCMC. Nam was incredibly well prepared and had an answer to any and all of our questions. He enjoyed hosting us and it very well showed. Take this tour for an intense feeling of soaking up the city. We highly recommend it!
