The driver and I will meet you at Phu My port gate with a sign bearing your name. The Phu My port gate is 6 to 10 minute walk from the ship. Then we will transfer you to Saigon city where you will see the sites listed below;
•The pagoda, some famous highlights of the city, market, the old US embassy( now the US general consulate), the roof of an apartment building from where the last helicopter picked up evacuees the day before the fall of Saigon and other exciting activities. If you wish to have lunch, I can take you to a place where you can dine on delicious Vietnamese food at a reasonable price.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
