What people are saying about Ho Chi Minh City

Thinh (our guide) was exceptional throughout. He made sure we knew about whatever we passed by and whatever we went to see. He was good at keeping the group on schedule but did not hassle people to move on. He was friendly and helpful with any queries and did his best to accommodate all of the guests. The tour itself was very good. The food was very good and the sites were interesting. The prices of some of the wares at the stalls are more than elsewhere but that is to be expected and soes not detract from the overall experience. A very good trip and would highly recommend.

Great day trip to explore the Mekong Delta - we booked at short notice and everything worked out well nonetheless! Our guide Niem was super helpful and did his best to show us around and answer all our questions!
