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.
