In Brief

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
4 hours
Important InfoInfo
A vibrant metropolis, SAIGON teems with energy, activity and motion. Everywhere you look, you see the meeting of traditional and modern life. The emerging modern skyline stands cheek by jowl with colonial buildings and traditional temples. Outside on the streets, young professionals zip by on motorbikes, chatting on cellphones; inside the quiet temple courtyards, worshippers pray amidst clouds of incense.

Begin your tour into modern history with a tour of the REUNIFICATION PALACE. Formerly the Independence Palace of the South Vietnamese president, this 60s style building was famously stormed by tanks on April 30, 1975 signifying the fall of South Vietnam. It has been preserved in its original state, and the original tanks remain on display near the entrance gates.

Afterwards driving to the historic center to visit EMPEROR OF JADE PAGODA, one of Saigon's most interesting pagoda. Proceed to pay a quick visit to the neo-Romanesque NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL and the CENTRAL POST OFFICE. Pass by the classic European-style landmarks such as the ornate CITY HALL (HOTEL DE VILLE), the old OPERA HOUSE (both may only be viewed from the outside).

After this historical visit continue to the WAR REMNANTS MUSEUM where exhibition halls display imagery of both the French and ‘American’ wars.

Finally, end up at the central BEN THANH MARKET, where vendors display a vast array of goods and handicrafts, appealing to every taste.

This was an amazing trip for us and our friends. Our guide Vincent was very informative and good fun. We saw this vibrant city in a different light, scooting through all the madness on the roads. What an experience! We stopped at various interesting places, including a local market where we purchased fresh fruit for our 2 drivers who were vey appreciative. Thanks for a great day, Vincent. From your Scottish friends.

This was a great way to quickly see some of the main sights in HCMC. Vincente was our guide and Minh was our driver. It was very helpful being able to ask questions both at the sights and as we drove around.

An excellent whistle stop tour of some of the major sites in the City - perfect for a couple at the end of a long trip to Vietnam and somewhat 'toured out'. Difficult drinking beer in the back of a jeep with hard suspension but fun! Jonny the guide was informative and passionate as well as being flexible - dropping us off at the Rex Hotel so we could grab cocktails at the Roof Garden Bar. 5 Star review.

Great tour with Johnny Walker and drivers 005 and 007. Johnny was a fun and informative guide even taking us to places that he thought we would enjoy. An excellent way to see all of the sites in an afternoon or morning.

This was a great way to see the city. We are a family of 6, children age 5, 9, 10 and 12. You feel connected with the city and it's mad traffic. A good pace to see all the sights once we got out of the jeep. Everyone loved it.

Highly recommended for those wanting a good look around Saigon with great guides. Johnny's knowledge and humour made the four hours interesting and great fun while 007 artful driving got us around the organised chaos streets with ease. Great option for see prime sites Reunificantion Place, Saigon Postoffice, War Museum and to miss the afternoon heat. Big thank you to Johnny and 007 we look forward to seeing your photos

Not a great tour. While the guide was knowledgeable the jeep was old, uncomfortable and when it stated raining and they put up the tarp roof it had holes in it and leaked.
