Nana was a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. She led us to cool and interesting places we certainly would have missed exploring on our own. She augmented the stops with insightful stories about the history of Vietnam/Saigon, and their impact on today's culture, blended with helpful tips for our upcoming journey. Would recommend to take this tour as one of the first things in the city to get inspired for further activities during your stay.

One of the best walking tours I've been on. Nana is super enthusiastic and will bring you to non-touristy, local places (and she will also show you some hidden gems) :) If I could give 6 stars, I would!
