Cannot recommend enough. We were short on time and decided to do this spontaneously...we learned and saw so much! There is plenty that will make you think, even weeks after this tour. it gives a great overview on the city but also amazing inside information about what it is like living in HoChiMin and the unique history of Vietnam.

The tour was really good and is highly recommended, but what made it fantastic was the guide, Thanh, who was great. We went on our first day in Saigon and it was perfect, as it gave us a good orientation of the city and well as lots of useful information. Thanh gave us a lot of background, cultural and historical insights into the city and Vietnam, which was very interesting. The tour is definitely worth doing.

It’s like meeting an old friend that shows you around their favorite city. Nana was just awesome. If you want a tour that combines a couple of lesser known but historical sights in Ho Chi Minh City, look no further, this tour is for you! :)

Thanh was a terrific guide. He took us to see the main must see sights and provided interesting historical and personal context at each stop. Definitely the best walking tour we've done in Vietnam.
