Departure Time

8:00 AM
Watch Ho Chi Minh City awaken after morning hotel pickup by your guide. Travel in a climate-controlled vehicle to Tao Dan Park, and take a short walk with your guide to see locals perform their daily prayers and exercise.

Next, visit a fresh market where vendors sell live fish, dried meats, fresh vegetables and housewares. Enjoy a bowl of pho noodle soup for breakfast, sitting with locals at popular Pho 24 restaurant. Then sip Vietnamese coffee at one of the city’s busiest cafés.

Return to your air-conditioned vehicle to see Reunification Palace (aka Independence Palace), site of dramatic events during the Fall of Saigon in 1975. Take a short walk to Dong Khoi Street and Nguyen Hue Boulevard, known for boutiques and French colonial buildings including Saigon City Hall, Saigon Opera House, Central Post Office and Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral. Nearby, spot the Saigon River and Vietnam's highest building, Bitexco Tower.

Browse stalls filled with t-shirts, ceramics and more at vibrant Ben Thanh, then have lunch at a local restaurant. Afterward, return to your hotel for about two hours of free time before resuming your tour in the evening.

Your evening tour proceeds on the back of a motorbike — a classic mode of transport in Vietnam. Travel from location to location, sampling a range of delicious foods with your local guide. Stop at several stalls to try dishes that may include fresh seafood, Vietnamese crepes and hearty soups. Your dinner is accompanied by beer or rice wine. Soak up the night life and local culture until your guide returns you to your hotel to end your tour.

The local tour agency is Bravo Indochina Tours and the guides who took us around are freelancer guides. The HCMC sightseeing between 7.30 am and 1 pm included a trip to a local Chinese temple, a park with a cafe that served simple breakfasts and drinks, the Reunification palace, the Post Office and the Notre Dame Cathedral. The lunch provided was a 5-course meal and the food was delicious. The night food tour between 6.30 pm - 9 pm included a trip to a popular Vietnamese restaurant and a dessert/ drink place that served bubble milk tea. We were looking forward to this based on the previous reviews however were left disappointed. All transfers arranged via Grab/ Uber/ taxi.

I felt really brave going out on motorcycles at night in Saigon in this mad traffic city. I had to continually remind my self to concentrate on the scenery and not to mentally drive the motorbike. The various types of food were great and the company was even better. My driver was a character and we had lots of fun. It was interesting at the various museums that the Vietnam war is now known as the American war. Informative and interesting. Lots of fun.

Fantastic way to see HCMC and highly recommend this tour. Our guide picked us up promptly in the morning and we drove via AC car to all the sights. Due to rain we had to skip the park and pho breakfast but the guide more than made up for it with local coffee stop (Vietnamese coffee is SO good!)

What a great day! In the moening we were picked up at our hotel, and taken all around the city by private bus. Trung our guide was amazing, so knowledgable and friendly. We did the main sites and had a great lunch, high recommended. The evening food tour was awesome, you hop on a moped with a driver and tour the city where the real people eat. You sample food in varying districts, eating with the locals. All diets catered for. Tien our guide was fantastic and so much fun. There is no better way to see the city on its main transport the moped. This tour we highly reccomend, for orientation, culture, fun and see the real Vietnam

Save your money. The confirmation documents we received from the tour company said we would be picked up at 6:30, and to be ready 15 minutes early. We were. When no one showed up by 6:45, we had the hotel call the contact phone number provided. The person they contacted said we would be met at 7:45! When the hotel clerk explained that our paper said 6:30, the tour comany hung up on him. The tour guide did show up at 7:45, and was unaware of the 6:30 issue. After that, we decided to just try to enjoy the day and have a good tour. The tour guide was a very nice gentleman who tried to make sure we saw everthing but his English is very hard to understand. In addition, he didnt give us hardly any information on the sites that we couldnt have gotten out of our guidebook. He dropped us at the War Museum for 2 hours, for us to see on our own. That was way too much time, and after that we got his mobile number so we could call him if need be. In the reunification palace, his information was the same as the info on the self tour signs, which included English. The night portion of the tour was an experience, though. We went through the city, at rush hour, in cyclos. He took us to an eatery where locals have dinner, and ordered a variety of items. Most was very good. We would like to have had more input on the dishes ordered. After dinner, the cyclo rides continued through the city, which is beautiful when lit up at night. He took us to another restaurant to try another local dish, but there were no seats, and since we were full from the previous stop as we did not not know/were not told that we would be going to another restaurant, we said we didnt want to stay. If we had this to do over again, we would see the city sights on our own in the daytime everyting is withing walking distance and just book a night food tour.

Most interesting to see this amazing city and survive the traffic on motorbike and cycle. Especially enjoyed the night food experience and appreciated my guide's recommendation to see th AO group performance. My guide was very obliging and tried to see to my comfort and interests. He should develop more commentary about the sights of Saigon, but in general was informative and pleasant with reasonable English.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Saigon for the first time. Our tour guide, NT, was wonderful! I really enjoyed that we had plenty of time at each point of interest. My favorite stop would have to be the Central Post Office. NT also helped with purchasing the postcards and stamps!
