We chose this tour because of the flexibility of timings and small groups. We were met at our chosen place by Trang, Nicky, Nhu and Anh. The girls were fantastic and gave us a great insight into Ho Chi Minh city life. They were knowledgeable and fun, they took us to various sites as well as two local food places where we sampled excellent food with no tourists in site. The traffic is mad and very busy, but the girls drove with great confidence and we all felt really safe. They chatted endlessly along the way and weaved in out of small alleys, through the flower market, and we ended up shopping at the market where the girls waited so they could drop us back to our pick up point. We were visiting for the day whilst on a cruise and we would rate this tour as the best day of the 2 week holiday. Excellent all round thank you girls!
The tour was very well organised, interesting and fun. Pre-tour we had good communication with the office via email to book the time of the tour despite us booking just before departure from home. They initially proposed a morning tour as it was the wet season but as we did not arrive until the afternoon, they checked the forecast and gave us a 5pm departure. Perfect for dinner time. This was all organised while we were in transit.
Our guides arrived right on time and were two young ladies who spoke good English and were very helpful and informative. They were skillful on their scooters and we felt safe despite the chaos of Ho Chi Minh city traffic.
The food places visited were good and the guides made sure our wishes such as vegetarian food or not too spicy were catered for.
A tip for big headed travelers is to request a large helmet when booking. With much effort I squeezed the supplied helmet over my oversize noggin but it was uncomfortable.
Amazing - we were taken out by Hang and Loi who had exception knowledge of Ho Chi Minh City. We saw so much with them that we never would have seen before. Their driving and navigating through the thousands of mopeds was commendable and we felt safe the entire time. This trip was very good value for money and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting. We had alredy spent 4 days in the city before the tour, and couldn't believe how much more there was to see! Thank you for a very memorable evening!
Had an amazing experience with Hana and Hue. They picked us up as requested and gracious and charming while they wissed us around the city on scooters, seeing the sights and eating in various sites. We had a limited time as we were flying out that night and they even dropped us off at the airport. Strongly recommended
We walked off our cruise ship and there they were: Trang, Suong and Hang, full of smiles, motor scooters at the ready. After a brief discussion of what we had already seen in Saigon, we decided on an itinerary and were off, my husband, son 20 years old and myself. All three of our delightful drivers managed the intimidating Saigon traffic with ease while conversing with and explaining the passing streetscape to us. We, as passengers, soon learned to relax and leave the driving to these very capable young women, and focus on the amazing street tableaux we were passing through. One of our first stops was the oldest cafe in Saigon where we each got to sample Bahn My and the delicious local clay pot coffee. Then we actually got a behind the scenes tour and were able to help make the coffee! We went to a number of different markets that focused on various things: flowers, produce and seafood. Any food we expressed interest in trying was soon in our hands, peeled, or otherwise ready to sample. Our tour finished with a delicious lunch in a restaurant filled with locals, no tourists in sight but us! Would highly recommend our guides and this tour. Viator streamlined the booking for us, talking at least twice with the vendor to make sure we would be met at the cruise dock and that our timing needs would be honored. Could not be happier with the organization and the tour. A must if you are even slightly adventurous and a foodie!
