Full description
Your Saigon city tour begins in front of the Saigon Central Post Office. Please aim to arrive about 15 minutes early for a quick briefing before setting off. Be sure to remember your camera as you will want to capture all of the city's top sights throughout the tour.

With no two days the same in Saigon, your guide will prepare a flexible itinerary so as to show you the best side of each day, while ensuring every adventure is a unique and exciting one. The tour includes many key stops including Notre Dame Cathedral and the Reunification Palace. The rest of your four hours is made up of exploring the lesser-known Saigon.

Expect locals markets, Vietnamese snacks, Saigon-style coffee, and other off-the-beaten-path spots along the route. The tour will also pass Coffee Biet Dong, where your guide will explain its fascinating and surprising past. The walking tour ends at the flower market, where you'll stop for some local drinks before hopping on the cyclo to get a different perspective of the city.
