What people are saying about Ho Chi Minh City

If you are contemplating what to do with a few hours this is a wonderful experience. Our Tour Guide Belle Nguyen was fabulous! She has so much enthusiasm and you can tell she really loves her work. In review we were picked up at our Airbnb by 2 Cyclos for a tour around the city. It was so relaxing and exciting to see everyone going to and fro. We were greeted many times on our ride with wide smiles and big hellos and it made us feel special. Ms Belle rode her motor and followed closely behind and was in constant contact with us in case we needed anything. After about an hour ride on the cyclos we were dropped off at the pier area for a Dinner Cruise. The Indochina Queen was huge and it was completely full which gives you an idea how popular this tour is. Ms Belle seated us and made sure our food choices were translated to the staff. She then departed and returned after dinner to escort us out to the deck to enjoy the rest of the cruise. She made this tour unforgettable. .

Even though we couldn’t do the moto tour because of the rain, we got an amazing time on the boat eating loads of delicious Vietnamese food (you need to come there already starving to eat it all). The boat is huge and beautiful, the musicians were great but we got no traditional dance as said in the announce. Our guide Ruco was the sweetest, he drove slowly and carefully for the ones that are scared of the roads of Saigon and was happily answering all our questions. We definitely recommend to do the tour with him. We think personally that this tour is really good as a first discovery of the city if you’ve just arrived.

I was so delighted by the services that I’ve been thru the tour. I’ll give her more than 5stars 7stars (Reason ) prompt services Gd route knowledge Excellent Knowledge History of Vietnam Best at what she love to do Smile always Really thankful for the safe journey throughout my tour. I’ll would love to have her again in future for the bike tour Thanks Maya ( my dear)

The atmosphere and the food were good but didn’t like the music , should have live music with singers would be better.

Very nice tour with tasty food at the ship. The communication was very good and the guides make an excellent job :)
