Full description
After being picked up from your centrally-located hotel by your guide, you will be introduced to your driver and hop on the cyclo. Arrive at the stunning Reunification Palace as your knowledgeable guide tells you all about its history and significance. Although you won't enter the landmark in this tour, learn about the exceptional building and snap some pictures. Next, head to the famous Notre Dame Cathedral and the Post Office where you’ll get to admire the interior of these French Colonial buildings. Then your guide will show you the historic CIA Building where the last U.S Helicopter flew out of HCMC in 1975. Learn all about the last U.S Operation, Frequent Wind. 

Once you’ve marveled at the French architecture, get back on the cyclos and enjoy a quick ride to the Hotel Continental complex which Graham Greene and many other famous writers called home during their Vietnam stay. See the roadside cafe at the Hotel along with the impressive Opera House where scenes from “The Quiet American” were filmed. Hop back on the cyclo for a 30-minute ride along Nguyen Hue Street, one of the most beautiful streets in the whole city. Take the chance to experience the real Ho Chi Minh City just as a local does. Gaze at the Saigon River and other impressive landmarks such as the city’s tallest building, the mighty Bitexco. Then head through the Old Market which is crammed full of food products and street food stalls.

Continue the tour by passing some of the city’s Indian Temples, Ben Thanh market and Tao Dan Park. Then travel on to the memorial of Thich Quang Duc, where your knowledgeable guide will explain its history and significance. Then, cyclo to our last stop, the War Remnants Museum, where you will say goodbye to your driver. This museum is a must-see spot to learn about the Vietnam War from a different perspective. Be prepared to be moved by Vietnam’s upsetting past. After an unforgettable and memorable tour, catch a taxi which will drop you off at your accommodation.
