Commonly known as "Saigon", Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam; a home to more than 10 million people and 8 million scooters! We can still see well-preserved colonial buildings and war relics in the city. On the other hand, high rise and modern buildings are making their presence felt.

Although the city is chaotic with endless slow-moving traffic, the hustle and bustle of the city do not affect the unique friendliness of the people.

Ho Chi Minh Tour Reviews

A wonderfull day in Ho Chi Minh City

Xuan's experience in being a guide is obvious. He knows his city, the history and really cool places that only the "in crowd" would know of. He took us to a coffee boat, where we had drank smoothies while relaxing in the very old boat overlooking the river. It was a great day and I highly recommend Xuan as a tour guide

Susan Z.

Dear Susan, Thank you for such a great feedback which motivated me for years to come. Please visit Vietnam again and I do hope to welcome you and your beloved family soon. Happy holiday! Xuan,

An amazing day thanks to an amazing guide!

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!

Steve G.

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,

Excellent guide

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
