I did this tour alone, with two other people and our guide was Tom. Tom is super friendly and really interesting to listen to. He can explain basically everything about his city and this was very enriching. I took the tour with street food degustation, and this was so nice. Everything you try is included in the price you pay, and you get to taste different Vietnamese flavours (and you have a LOT to eat so don’t worry). I strongly recommend you doing this tour, especially if you are here for a short period as you get to know a lot of the city in only 4 hours.

I had an amazing time with these folks from the time Ly picked me up, it felt like I was with friends, trying out new dishes anc snacks and having a chat. The whole team was so friendly and spoke very good English, so it was very easy communicate and learn a lot from just 3-4 hours. We tried so many varieties of food which would've been impossible for me as a solo traveller. Good food needs good company. I loved this. tour and would highly recommend you to try it as well. Every dish was mouthwatering.. !! Thank you!

Leo the guide really explained the intricacies and historical background of the tunnels, and he encouraged us to climb down into the tunnels to experience just a little what the fighters had to go through. Same for the city tour. Can't recommend this tour enough.

we had a great time on the tour, the company were really flexible and it's a great way to see lots of sites in the city in a day, would highly recommend! Mike our tour guide was very knowledgeable

The sight seeing was great from the top of the bus at sunset! It was called a hop on hop off tour but we did not get to do this and was just a round trip of the city
