Patrick was terrific. His English is excellent, as he studied linguistics. He is a very careful driver and I felt quite at ease in very heavy traffic. Patrick’s colleague was delightful and also a very careful driver. Patrick picked up on the fact that since my husband is an architect, he would be interested in stories about construction and property development. We learned things about HCMC that we would have never found in a guide book. Highly recommend!

Our guide in Ho Chi Minh City was excellent. He shared his vast knowledge freely and with some definite ideas about all of the regimes Saigon has gone through over the years. We were on a cruise and, therefore, had a limited amount of time for our sightseeing. We were able to hit the must-see's with his narration along the way.

the tour itself was nice, full program, fully respected; unfortunately by moving in small jeeps the guide was not on outlr jeep, our driver could not speak English so often the guide was arriving after us at the stop, and we didn't know what to do, how long we had...he was very nice and caring though.

Everything was ok - but the trip and the activities were characterized by being a tourist magnet. There were an unusual number of tourists at the Cu Chi tunnels and the delta trip was a jumble of boats criss-crossing the short stretch of swampy delta.

Dan, the tour guide, was funny, knowledgeable, and passionate.
