In high season, please verify my availability by message before booking. If you arrive in ports outside HCM City (e. g. Phu My), please message me for adding an additional fee of transport (60-90usd) for me to come to the province to pick up our group; OR I can provide a free pick-up service by a local private driver, who is located in the province, and we'll meet to start the tour after you arrive in HCMC.

A Recent Review of this tour

Sharmay was awesome, she took us around HCMC in the limited sights we had, arranging to see the main sites and car to be there always coming to take us on. She also threw in a spa visit for yummy massages which was so nice!
