Full description

Experience the highlights of Ho Chi Minh City from atop a double-decker bus. Ride through the city with a live guide or pop on a headset and learn about its triumphs, tragedies, and thriving culture. With a flexible hop-on hop-off tour schedule, fit this trip in whatever your plans may be.

Choose your ideal time of day and enjoy different atmospheres whether you go in the morning or later on. Pick daytime slots and zoom around the busy streets or an evening slot to watch the storefronts light up as the sun goes down.

See the multicultural influences on architecture as you pass by the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon, the Central Post Office, Independence Palace, and City Hall. Learn about how each building came into being and how the city transformed from Saigon to Ho Chi Minh City.

Weave through the streets of Ben Thanh Market, Bui Vien, Pham Ngu Lao, and Nguyen Hue Street, and witness the lively and diverse atmospheres around each corner. The Bach Dang Pier is a beautiful stop for admiring the Saigon River, even more so in the evening when the city lights up. 

You’ll pass by museums, the zoo, and more, giving you plenty of ideas for what to do on the rest of your trip in this unique city. If you'd like maps, brochures, or more information, your guide will be happy to help.

There wasn’t anything wrong with this tour. You pretty much get on and they announce the stops on their list. It’s good if you want a way to see the city and places you might want to visit, but are too tired and hot to walk around and just want to chill for a bit.
