Good way to see loca districts of Saigon

The tour consisted of two parts I.e. Jeep tour in Saigon (2 hours) and the speed boat river trip to se the city from the river (also 2 hours). Particularly the first part of the trip is unforgettable because they bring you to the local commercial districts to see motorbike spare parts market, the local pharmacies and Chinese temples. Normally, the average tourist has no chance to make this experience during 2-days stay in Saigon when on his/her own. The only disadvantage is the smog attacking you when sitting for 2 hours in an open car. I truly recommend the operator to have the anti-smog masks available for tourists. We felt a bit dizzy when leaving the car after 2 hours. Then the trip continued on the boat to experience the local and business districts of Saigon from the river. Overall, well done!

Interesting insights into the gruesomeness of war

The tour was great, we were able to see the Vietnamese side of the war and understand more about how the Vietnamese (and more specifically the Viet Cong people) lived during the war. They tried to present the facts, without being too opinionated, which was great. At Cu-Chi tunnels we were able to go through the tunnels several times, also to fire a few rounds with several guns (we chose an AK47) at a decent price (around 27 USD for 10 bullets; 10 bullets is the minimum, and they can be split between two people). Overall, a great experience. Also the service was good (both lunch and the bus), and the tour guide was very honest and knowledgeable.

Tour was nice but unnecessary for the locations in town

The tour was good and went as described but if I had to do it again I would just do the Cu Chi tunnels and do the rest of the activities around town myself. I didn't think the post office or cathedral were worth visiting. It was nice to have a guide around the reunification palace but we were not guided around the war remnants museum and really you don't need a guide for that. Cu Chi tunnels was great, it definitely made things easier to go on tour and our group size was not huge so we got to make the most of our visit. There were parts that seemed a bit rushed but overall it was good.

Excellent and knowledgeable, great value for money.

Our guide (Sugar) was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The driver was calm, which made us calm, especially in such a madcap scooter-tasting city where crossing the road successfully makes you feel like a stuntman! All the places we went to were first rate and to learn the history before each location helped with our own understanding. The Jeep was a real treat with a character all of its own and my wife and I loved it. Definately do this activity if your time in Ho Chi Minh allows.

My guide had excellent knowledge of the areas he took me to.

What a wonderful way to start my first visit to Vietnam !! My guide took me through the different markets that aren't normally seen by tourists, and answered so many of my questions. I got to eat some local food and was able to stop for some shopping along the way. I will be back again for another trip.
