What people are saying about Saigon Central Post Office

Really nice tour and great way to experience Ho Chi Ming from the tower and the river. I was sceptical about the dinner but it turned out to be delicious. I hadn't been on a scooter in about 10 years and was a lovely experience. my guide Tom was really nice and helpful. Recommended for people on their first night in Ho Chi Ming

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.

The two guides were great. Really enjoyed meeting them and their care for us every step of the way. I recommend them.

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