    This tour is perfect for first time visitors who want to get around the major attractions of the city. It also helps you get you oriented to how Saigon/HCMC is laid out, which helps if you plan to walk around on your own. We were a party of just three, so I was expecting just a car or a van of some sort but it was a pleasant surprise that we had a whole coaster just to ourselves. Our guide Lam took care of everything like admission tickets and water. She and our driver even went the extra effort of bringing us to a few places we wanted to see that were not included: this was because our hotel was close to Ben Tranh Market so we opted not to end our tour there; instead we saw the Pink Church and shopped at Saigon Square. If you book this tour try and find out if you can get Lam as your guide; she was very passionate about her job while being very informative and considerate of her guests.

    Informative, well paced and personable.

    Our guide Lam was fabulous. She was on time at collection and cleverly managed our 4 hours together to maximise our site seeing opportunities and learning about Saigon. There were 6 of us who booked together and our transport was very comfortable and cool. Lam made sure all our needs were addressed and her attention to detail was impeccable. The vehicle even had wi-fi! Thank you Lam.
