Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour: By visiting and paying an entrance fee to the Reunification Palace, this tour helps preserve local cultural heritage. The lunch you will enjoy as part of the tour will a bowl of traditional pho (noodle soup), provided at a local restaurant. This mesmerizing half-day Ho Chi Minh City tour gives you a fun and fascinating insight into the history, culture, and daily life of the locals in this busy, buzzing city on a cyclo.

Our HCMC tour then takes us to Reunification Palace, previously referred to as the Presidential Palace, and the site of the official South Vietnamese surrender on April 30th, 1975. We’ll then enjoy a traditional local Vietnamese lunch of Pho, or noodle soup – a must when you’re in Vietnam!

Está bien lo que me dieron, pero no es el tour que había contratado. Es mucho más corto y no incluyó el Museo Fito de medicina tradicional ni el mercado chino. Sólo la Catedral de Nuestra Señora, la Oficina de Correo, el Palacio Presidencial, el Museo de los restos de la guerra y el templo chino del barrio chino. Había contratado este tour justamente porque visitaba el Museo de medicina tradicional. Lo que nos dijo la guía Vic - por cierto excelente - que este tour habia sido descontinuado y que en realidad es hoy un tour de medio día.

Wirklich viele Hintergrundinformationen erhielten wir nicht. Das Englisch des Guides, der zwar sehr nett und bemüht war, war sehr schwer verständlich. Die Tour war bereits um 15:00 Uhr beendet. Angeschaut haben wir: Notre Dam, Post Office, reunification Palace, war remnant Museum, Ben Tanh Markt, ein Tempel in Cholon. Mittag gab es Restaurant im Pho 2000.
