It was a great tour, with a very friendly and knowledgable guide. We were lucky because we were the only two people booked for the day. That meant that we could stay as long or as short as we wanted at any particular sight. The hour-long cyclo bike ride through Chinatown and the Ho Thi Ky flower market was a great start. It's amazing how the cyclo drivers can maneuver around the rest of the crazy Saigon traffic! Next was a visit to the oldest Buddhist temple in Saigon. Watching the monks chant before eating their meal was a surreal experience. Every stop on the tour was an interesting part of the day. The guide answered every question that we had. This tour is a great value and definitely worth the money!
What a wonderful way to start my first visit to Vietnam !! My guide took me through the different markets that aren't normally seen by tourists, and answered so many of my questions. I got to eat some local food and was able to stop for some shopping along the way. I will be back again for another trip.
Our guide Annie was very knowledgeable and her English is very good. We appreciated being left to wander through the War Remnants Museum on our own although Annie would have joined us if we had wanted. I would definately recommend this tour to you.
The tour is very flexible. We opted to visit the Jade Pagoda instead of the museum. I am a history buff, whereas my wife and teenager are not. Our guide successfully showed us all the sights I wanted to see while minimizing our time at each.
I had a wonderful few hours with such a kind , thoughtful and knowledgeable guide and a very efficient driver . So many aspects of the Saigon history, culture and experience were explained and I was totally absorbed .
