Nana is an excellent guide. Even though we were only 3 people she was really enthusiastic and eager to show us about the day to day reality of HCMC. She was also very open to our questions and doubts and gave us good advice about the rest of our trip and where to eat authentic Vietnamese food.

Nana was such an enthusiastic and friendly guide. She showed us parts of Saigon we probably wouldn't have seen otherwise and gave us an insight in to how the people of the city live. She couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
