What people are saying about Ho Chi Minh City

Would recommend this tour to anyone!! Firstly, travelling on the motorbike is so easy and fun and I always felt safe. Secondly, the amount of food you get to try is amazing and the tastes are spectacular! Thirdly, and this is the most important, my tour guide was amazing!! I’d already tried a lot of food in Vietnam before this tour so when I originally looked at the tour menu I realised I’d be eating some stuff I’d tried before. But the tour guide, Hun, customised the tour for me so I only ate foods I’d never had before. What a legend!! Here is her instagram: Han.ng_

Steve was a great tour guide and was very informative. He made any adjustments to the tour that we wanted and was very kind and helpful. He provided us with additional places to check out during our stay. It was great having a private tour and being able to do the tour on our own pace. I would highly recommend!
