We loved this tour, and Lee as our guide! Not only did everything run smoothly because of his great organizational skills, I loved his perspective and knowledge he brought to the tours, Lee having grown up in the Mekong delta. His stories were amazing and left me wanting me to see more of the area. When I come back, I will definitely book with Lee again.
Marc GlaserUnited States
Lee was a fantastic host for our day in Vietnam. He was very informative and humorous, which made the long drive from the port to cu chi tunnels seem quite short. His knowledge of the area was outstanding, and really interesting to us. The choice of venue for lunch was also really good, great local food.
Jay FinkleUnited States
Lee is an outstanding young man with vast knowledge of Saigon and Vietnam. A true gentleman! He will customize your tour and you will be quite pleased with the results. He picked us up at the port on time and his driver was excellent. Most importantly my wife was enjoyed herself immensely. I promise any of you reading this that you will truly enjoy your Saigon tour with Lee!!
Robert OrtegaUnited States
Lee was an excellent choice for our tour. We wanted to make a few changes to the details and he was very accommodating and helpful. We learned so much from our tour, and enjoyed every minute.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Robert, Thank you very much for your feedback! It is great to hear that you enjoyed my tour services very much. All The Best! Lee,
We were a few minutes early and the driver and guide were exactly where they said they would be with a sign showing our group. Guide Lee was very personable and funny. He kept a good pace and we saw the major tourist sights as well as many local area sights we would not have seen without a knowledgeable guide and a small tour group. If he or someone else spotted something, the driver stopped the van and Lee walked us back to see ex. watermelon carving etc. Driver was good navigator, van comfortable clean

Laura T.United States
Lee did an amazing job for us! We'd been to Saigon before, but he showed us areas we never would have found on our own. He made sure we saw the big tourist highlights, but we also enjoyed a local food market and a garden retreat on the river. There we learned about rice production and other local plants and had local coffee and snacks. Our lunch was delicious and a nice, quiet break from the craziness of Saigon. Lee ensured we were back to our ship with time to spare and no stress.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great feedback! I had a wonderful day with you and your family. Wish you and family are always happy. Lee,
Suzy S.United States
Saigon is a beautiful & energetic city. We had a wonderful day with Lee as our guide. We saw the old and the new city. Lee's knowledge of the history, geography and customs made our tour even more interesting. He also had a great driver. We would use Lee again. Definitely recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Joe and Mrs. Suzy, Thank you so much for your review! I am deeply delighted to know that you had the great time in Saigon!

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Lee is a fantastic guide who speaks well English. We arranged the customised trip with him a few weeks before our vacations. Lee was always reachable by phone. The car and the driver, both excellent. The driver was very sensible. The tour itself was well designed. Reason for not giving 5 stars is slight dissapointment with the meal. On a private tour (and quite a pricey one) we were hoping for a more authentic experiance and not dinning at a restaurant that caters only for tourists and mainly groups.

Kathy HuaUnited States
Lee was a wonderful guide for me and my family during our trip to Saigon. He was funny, informative, and very knowledgeable about the sites he took us to visit. He arrived on time and spoke English well. For lunch, he took us to a really great restaurant in Saigon, tucked away and very quiet, and accommodated our vegetarian family members as well. And on top of everything, Lee was very funny and kept us laughing all day. He is a great tour guide and I definitely recommend him to anyone visiting Saigon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Kathy, Thanks you very much for your feedback! I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour very much and I am looking forward to having you again in Vietnam. Best wishes, Lee

Our group of 4 adults had 5 hours free while in transit at Saigon airport. The tour Lee offered was fantastic, his smiling face greeted us at the airport, his driver loaded our luggage and we were off on an enjoyable tour of central Saigon places of interest, we also visited an eco village near the Saigon River which was excellent . Lee spoke excellent english, was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed his humor. Would recommend Lee and Tours by Locals. Cheers from New Zealand.

Lee is an outstanding tour guide for Saigon, we got to see behind the scenes places like the local island market. He brought us to a local street vendor for the best bahn mi sandwich I ever tasted. Lee had a great knowledge of the local history and was funny too. He pointed out the overloaded motorbike calling it a moving "7-11" At the end of the day we had seen and experienced much more than our fellow cruise passengers. Mark
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Mark Doyle, Thank you for your great feedback! I am very happy that you enjoyed my services. Hope to welcome you visit my home town (Mekong Delta) soon, when you come to Vietnam. I wish you and family always happy together. Best! Lee.
We visited the Cu Cui tunnel with Lee. He was very pleasant, spoke English very well and accommodated our requested customization of the tour. He took us to get coffee and banh mi to eat on our ride which was perfect. He also did not rush or crowd us during the tour. We would definitely use him again if we visit Vietnam next time. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Judy Cheung and Mr. Paul Fong, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. The driver and I so happy to take you and your family to enjoy coffee and banh mi like local. Thank you again for kindly letting me know that your family the trip so much.

Lee shared is real information of Tunnels and was amazing, even compared to other guides there he surpassed them on his knowledge. He is a great tour guide. He is one professional, knowledgeable, friendly, funny and pleasant person. I would rate him a perfect 5 star. I had no regrets only good times with Lee. I would highly recommend Lee!.

Dorothy KorseyUnited States
This was a great tour that took us to a wide variety of sights while avoiding large crowds. Lee was fun and informative, and gave us a locals view on history and contemporary Vietnam. All entrance fees, water, and a fabulous lunch were included. The van was clean and new and boasted WiFi, an excellent touch we hadn't expected!!
Dorothy KorseyUnited States
This was the second tour we did with Lee. I mixed up my reviews, 1st day was Ho Chi Minh city, and 2nd day was the Mekong. We loved the Mekong, Lee's home town, so he was able to give us a unique perspective. We took a traditional boat to an Eco village, rode in a horse drawn cart, were polled through the river delta, had one of the best lunches ever, and made it back to our ship safe and sound and on time. Lee and his driver were fabulous. He answered all our questions, even those we forgot to ask!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Dorothy Korsey, Thank you for your comment. I am very happy that you enjoyed the 2 days tour. I wish you and family always happy together. Best! Lee.

We know that our plan was hard to fulfill, neverthless, everything was according to our wishes and we experienced even more than one can expect in a short time. Lee, our guide was very informative and exact in organising everything such as timing, accomodations, sightseeings etc. We give Lee and his driver our highest recommendations.
5+ STARS For Personalized Saigon City 1/2day Tour with Lee. Lee arrived bright and early for our morning tour of Ho Chi Minh. The perfect host to guide us around this amazing city. Articulate, Knowledgeable with a great Sense Of Humour, he personalized our viewing to suit our interests and needs. Our driver and comfy air-conditioned Hyundai, easily accommodated 3 passengers. Expectations were exceeded and we (senior ladies) 200% recommend you ask for Lee to be your guide - you wont regret it!!

Wow! Our trip to Saigon was made by Lee. He is outstanding, professional, knowledgeable, with a wealth of information to share about his beloved country. The automobile was 1st. class and very comfortable. The driver was amazing always parking very close and if we walked...he was at the exit. I so want to return to this lovely city and hopefully to see Lee again. Please don't miss a chance to see Saigon through Lee's eyes.

With a group so big, we had many requests. He accommodated all of us. We toured Saigon from a cruise port.

This was an absolutely fabulous tour. Lee and our driver Mr. Phong were beyond pleasant and helpful. They took us to the traditional sites in Ho Chi Min City and gave us valuable information regarding each. We then went beyond to a small village where market was being held.

In Ho Chi Min City a wonderful restaurant was chosen for a terrific lunc. Lee is the best!!
