Very Enjoyable Morning Tour
Mar 2020
A full morning to great sights and Vietnamese culture. I booked the tour the evening before and was promptly picked up at my hotel the following morning. I was surprised to learn I was the only guest on the tour. My tour guide was Vin. He is very knowledge of all the stops and sights on the tour schedule. I can't give one site that I liked the most because they were all very interesting. I suppose the Independence Place was the most impressive site. If you book this tour you will have a very nice morning.

Great - everything in Saigon
Excellent tour with great informative guide. Independence palace, Remnants museum, pagoda, post office in comfortable vehicle. Plus a couple of other bits thrown in, cathedral, opera house and more. All the buildings worth a visit but museum a must to see some of the dreadful war pictures particularly aimed at US 'atrocities'. Not a balanced view but important to see (not for the squeamish). Pick up and delivery to hotel. Great comms from company. Recommended

Interesting
Very informative tour, war museum was very interesting but sombre for the first day in Saigon. Showed all sides of a horrific war though. Probably stayed in the presidents Palace for a bit too long, personal preference though. Timothy the guide had good knowledge and enthusiasm and the trip was well worth. Good half day experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The time and money was well spent. My tour guide, Thao, was exceptional. She offered many stories at each stop, took pictures, and was very engaged during the tour. Do this tour and ask for Thao.

Presidential palace
Booked the tour on our 2nd morning in HCMC and Timothy who was our guide was very enthusiastic and informative and it was a great introduction to this busy and amazing city. He clearly new his subject and was cheerful and engaging. We had the added advantage of being just my wife and myself on the tour so had a more personal and relaxed guided tour. It was a half day well spent and being in the morning it was not too hot.
