Khoa was very eager to be sure we had the itinerary we wanted in the time allotted. He and his driver, Hero, picked the best routes to avoid traffic and got us safely to our sites. He went above and beyond expectations in delivering a top notch tour.

We just completed our excellent tour today with Khoa from Phu My to Saigon. This was beyond our expectations full of local experiences as well as the highlight "must see" sights. A 5 star experience for sure and one we will remember forever. Thank you for welcoming us to your country with your very personal tour.
Khoa was an excellent guide for our day in Ho Chi Minh city. He and his driver picked us up on time and we were on our way. He has a great personality and it certainly shines through in his tours. The showed us things that no other tours did when we compared to others that hired a guide while in port. He went above and beyond all of our expectations and we certainly look forward to hopefully meeting up with him in the future. Gord, Joanne, Ernest and Orlene from Canada

Khoa was a great guide and went out of his way to personalise the tour to cater for our interests. The small street lined with antique shops was a highlight. He also gave insights into modern Ho Chi Minh city and it's people. With our driver Hero we negotiated the streets of the city with ease.

We loved our shore excursion with Khoa to Ho Chi Minh city! Our day started off with a very easy pick up at the port in a very comfortable car and then it was off to Saigon where Khoa helped us expertly navigate all of the motobikes! If you want a personalized tour that includes great food and coffee, lots of history and a little shopping thrown in, book with Khoa!

We had an excellent tour with Khoa on our trip to Saigon. We visited a lovely produce market and coffee shop with hammocks, rode on a local ferry, and got to experience the sites in Saigon we requested, and saw an important location in the history of the Vietnam war. The fact that Khoa worked diligently to give us a special experience that was was off the beaten path was greatly appreciated.
We were looking forward to Saigon. We were not interested in typical tourist destinations but in local Saigon. Khoa was a great guide. We were picked up at the harbor and our driver Hero brought us safely through the crazy traffic. We saw street cafes, the fruit and vegetable boats and could taste different types of fruit. A great lunch rounded off the day. With many impressions we came back and will definitely come back. We can only recommend Khoa.
Khoa was the best tour guide we have ever had, we have travelled extensively and have had quite a few. Khoa 's knowledge of Vietnam was extensive but also he knew allot about our country Australia as well. He was very courteous and went out of his way to accommodate any requests we had. This was our first time with Tours by Local and would not hesitate using again and certainly recommend to all of our friends. It was an outstanding day in Saigon.

Khoa was very engaging, but he did not have a lot to work with in Ho Chi Minh City. We went "off the beaten track", the highlight for me being ferry trip across the river. Maybe the tunnels would have been a better option, but you don't know what you don't know!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James and Yvette, Thank you for your positive review. I am happy that you enjoyed the ferry trip. My other tour package includes the tunnel trip. I hope to see you again. All the best, Khoa

Khoa did a remarkable job balancing the plethora of things to see and our time constraints. Our driver "hero" was indeed that among the chaos. Thanks.

Khoa and his driver met us at the cruise port to take us to Ho Chi Minh City. Our tour included every sight we wanted to see and more: markets, shops, temples, museums, lunch at an amazing local restaurant, even a local farm. Khoa is professional, knowledgeable, and cares about his guests. We were continually impressed by his descriptions/historical background of the places we visited. We truly felt that although we spent only one day together, Khoa created a charming and accurate tour for us.

The guide tour Koa was very interesting. He showed us all the important places. The highlight tour was that he took us to a fantastic local restaurant where we had lovely dinner. He was on time to receive us and on time to deliver us to the ship.
Robert SacripantiUnited States
Khoa was great. Very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Took us to some places most tourists normally don't get to experience. One of the very best tour guides we've had over the many years of traveling. Couldn't be more satisfied.
Khoa's spoken English is good and he was particularly proactive in ensuring our meet-up went smoothly as we started the tour from the Phu My port. The tour was off the beaten path as we could experience some of the country-side and was allowed to see how the locals lived and travelled. The journey to HCM City was interesting as we got to experience the ferry crossing of Saigon River. The hammock rest stops and stop at a local farm house were the highlights. My party enjoyed the tour immensely.
Eileen AustinUnited States
Khoa showed us old and new Saigon. From the countryside hammocks and fruit vendors we then crossed the river on the ferry. Skyscrappers exist alongside small local merchants. I would highly recommend Khoa for your tour; he and the driver made sure we were happy and received an excellent tour!
Alice EttingerUnited States
We had an absolutely wonderful trip to Saigon with our guide. The day started with pouring rain and we were soaked through and through. He took us to his house where his mother gave us tea and cookies and he loaned us dry clothing to wear for the rest of the trip. Our day in Saigon was outstanding. We were off the beaten path, and missed all of the buses and traffic. Our tour was amazing and I highly recommend this tour with our wonderful guide to everyone.
Terry MooreClackamas, OR, United States
This was an absolutely amazing place to visit and our guide and driver were superb. We saw places off the beaten track and had unique local experiences we will never forget. I can highly recommend Khoa as a guide.
It was a great experience to see "your" Saigon. Thank you very much for making this tour with us. We had a lot of fun!
We are four passengers from the Majestic Princess who arrived in Phu My on 1st September. This was the first time we have used a local guide as previously we used the Princess tours so we were a little nervous. However, we were met as scheduled by Khoa and had the most amazing tour of Ho Chi Min City. Khoa and driver Hero, were wonderful and ensured that we experienced the "real" Saigon. We saw the usual city highlights as well as the more confronting lifestyle of locals. Definitely recommend.

Lawrence B.BELLEVUE, WA, United States
Khoa's tour was exactly what we were hoping for. We wanted to see Vietnam and Saigon from the less touristy side. My wife has mobility issues and Khoa designed the tour so there was minimal walking but we still were able to see the sights. I would highly recommend Khoa, he knows what he's doing and can design a tour to meet your needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mike and Janet. I am very very happy that you had a great day on the tour..
Sharon CullersUnited States
My family and I had a great time with Khoa. We traveled via cruise and saw so much more than the big cruise excursions. We saw so many great sites, tried jack fruit, and visited how the locals live. What a great cultural experience. My father is a Vietnam War veteran and we were concerned about this port stop. Khoa's knowledge about the US military during that time allowed my dad to talk about his experiences. He said that was the best port stop. THANK YOU, Khoa, for a wonderful trip to Saigon!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sharon, Thanks you for your kind words. I'm glad Vince, Betty , you and your dad had a good time in Saigon. Cheers, Khoa
We had a wonderful day with Khoa. The tour was more than we had imagined as we went off the main highway when going to Saigon and got to experience other parts of this city. Khoa was great, his knowledge is amazing as is his wit and we went to all the places we wanted to see plus more. Thanks for a wonderful day Khoa and driver in your lovely city.

This was an excellent tour. My husband is a Vietnam veteran and our guide was very sensitive to this. Prior to our visit he had researched the information about where my husband had served in the Saigon area and took us, as close as possible to those areas. If we were ever in Vietnam again we would use this guide again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Janet and Randy, Thank you very much for your comment. My pleasure comes from your satisfaction with my tour services. I look forward to meeting you again on the other tours in Vietnam. All the best, Khoa
