We will visit the town of Ben Tre, about two hours away from the city. Known as the "Kingdom of Coconut", Ben Tre is one of the best places to explore the untouched and natural landscapes of Mekong Delta, Vietnam: its beautiful water coconut canals combined with traditional activities and lush gardens. Relax on a local rowing boat as we drift serenely through several green canals beneath high-rising water coconut trees. Doubtlessly, it is truly a picture of paradise.

I am a Saigon based guide but happy to attend whole Vietnam tour.
1. The tour is private and flexible as well so please let me know if you have any special requirement.
2. I also arrange pick up and drop off at the airport.
3. If you arrive by cruise ships and have some time to spend, I am happy to customize your dream itinerary.
The size of our group kept changing. Xuan dealt with it in such a professional way. But the highlight was his own skills and personality. Smart, professional, and incredibly personable he made the day an absolute delight for all nine of us. If you want to see and experience HoChiMinh City in ways the standard tour will never provide, use Xuan. It will be the highlight of your trip!
Dear Steve, Thanks for a great review. And it's my honor to meet and become your private guide in Ho Chi Minh city. Once again, Thank You for visiting Vietnam. I do hope to welcome you all again soon. Happy holidays! Xuan Le,
Me and my family had a few hours between our transfer so we decided to spend those hours in Ho Chi Minh city. Xuan was an excellent guide as he was energetic and had detailed knowledge about the city as well as Vietnam in general. He showed us around the interesting landmarks in the city as well as taking us to local food restaurants. In all Xuan was a great guide as he was prompt and had a clear interest in the city’s culture and history. Strongly recommend
Dear Yulia, THANK YOU for a brilliant review. That has motivated me so much to be a responsible and enthusiastic guide for years to come. Please visit my beloved Vietnam again in the future and We have more interesting things to show you and your loved ones. Happy and prosperous new year 2023! Xuan Le,
