Even though we had spent a few days and seen the tourist hotspots, this was an amazing - we would say essential- part of seeing HCMC. Our trip included a wonderful dinner at Rice Terrace Restaursnt, which we would never have found, and trips to Skybar, the new VIP neighborhood, Seafood Market and drives through surrounding suburbs. Wow! Strongly recommend.

Seen a lot in a short time with a private guide, despite the busy and chaotic traffic in Saigon. Susan, our guide, is a passionate and interested person. Together with the (private) driver, she does her best to help you safely in and out of the car and has a lot of knowledge of the sights she showed us.

A lovely company and tour! We strongly recommend making use of them. We had a lovely general overview of Ho Chi Minh city.

We had a brilliant evening with our guide Windy. She was very friendly, spoke perfect English and very knowledgeable.

Our guide, Hunter, was awesome. He was full of information and very helpful. We loved the tour.
