Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 6,031 reviews

It is an excellent way to navigate the city in the early part of your visit. We first caught the bus at the start at 9 am and did the one hour lap. The next time we got off at a chosen stop and later used the bus to return to our hotel area. We were unable to use the bonus evening trip due to other plans. We were satisfied with the 24 hr ticket because we were happy to use taxis or walk to locations on our other days.

We got stuck in traffic and started late, but that’s Ho Chi Minh City for you - full of motor bikes! Loved the time spent in understanding the history of the place. Although would have liked if it were a walking tour.

We really enjoyed visiting Independence Palace, the Central Post Office, and Notre Dame Cathedral on our tour. It was really good to get historical insight into some of Ho Chí Minh city's major sites.

The guide was very attentive, responded to all needs and could tell a lot, especially about the history and development of Vietnam.

Harry was excellent. He spoke english very well and had a great attitude. I'd recommend him to anyone!
