This is a really good tour for getting an overview of the city. The visit to the Presidential estate was very informative and they've done a great job of keeping it as it was in the late 60's early 70's. We had plenty of time to explore the War Remnants museum. Our guide Bau was also very informative and provided his insight as to the situation leading up to and after the Vietnam war. The other short stops at the Post office and Temple in Chinatown were also interesting. I could have by passed the trip to the lacquer factory interesting but I’m sure there are more interesting sights in Saigon. Less

It was a great experience for both my mom & I. It was very informative. I really liked that our guide really explained a lot about the history of Việt Nam, the culture and it’s people. We only had a very limited time in HCMC. One day was a visit to the tunnels and the next day we booked this tour as you are able to see all the city highlights. Got picked up by a guide with driver on a private car at 8am and got driven around learning, seeing & experiencing everything. We were back at the hotel at 12:30ish as we had an early afternoon flight. We opted out of the lacquer part of the tour as we had seen that the previous day as part of the tunnel tour. Less

This was a wonderful tour of Hanoi. Our guide, Travis, was very knowledgeable and friendly. His English is excellent and he connected very well with the group. The tour consisted of 4 main sites: the National Defense Temple, the Literature Temple, St. Joseph’s Cathedral and the Opera House. At the end we got a complimentary drink at a well-known egg coffee café. Overall a wonderful tour, well worth your time. Less
