Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 20 reviews

Our guide Lam was very motivated and guided us through places where we would have not gone otherwise. It was really helpful to have some additional explanations and not only walk through Chinatown and some other roads. I enjoyed that he is not a professional guide and works during the week as a professional in a industry company. He uses the tours to get additional inspirations from foreign countries and to further improve his english. He was very knowledgable on local fruits and in case he didn‘t know the english translations quick in googling them and showing the results. Although the tour is officially only planned for 3h Lam took some extra time to folllow our wishes and take time for photos ending up with more than 4h in total. We really enjoyed the time with Lam.

Good orientation tour

Nice competend Lady Guide named "Nhi". We gor a good orientation to the City. Everything was fine except the market in chinatown. Because of Reunification Day (30th. April) the Binh- Tay Market was closed as nearly all shops around. There was dirt, smell and disgusting rubbish to be seen/ smell! It is every year on the Same date. So why not change the itinery in this point? "Nhi" did a very good job and the tour can be recommended.

Walking tour with a local

Before the tour the local guide (in our case a student) contacts you to see if you have any specific interests so it can more tailored to your needs. We did a lot of walking and occasionally took a local bus, so good walking shoes are a must. The guide was pleasant and it was nice to hear some personal aspects of living in a city like HCMC. All in all a nice experience.

A good start into the turbulent city

A good start into the turbulent city. Since there are not too many tourist highlights in the city, it is very pleasant to take a look behind the scenes with a guide. Our guide did it quite well.

i enjoyed the textiles and notions, handicraft items. the temples were great as well.
