This was a great tour which showed us interesting sites infrequently visited by tourists. We saw where the locals shopped and learned lots about the history of HCM City. Khoa was a great guide whom I would highly recommend. The car was modern and clean and the driver was very capable. Adequate time was allowed for exploring on foot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Paul and Regina, Thank you for your kind words and the 5 star rating for my guidance and service. I am very happy that two of you had a great time on the tour. All the best, Khoa

We had a wonderful tour of Ho Chi Ming City with Khoa. It was just myself & my husband, Khoa & a driver so we had personalised service. Khoa just made the day for us, he covered all our questions & more, he had a DVD for us to watch whilst driving along about the Vietnam war. He took us to the Ci Chi tunnels where there were only a few tourists so we had the place to ourselves. He took us to a great restaurant for lunch also. We were very happy with the tour Khoa gave us & recommend him

Seeing the former Saigon city with Khoa was a pleasure. He and his driver were most accommodating to our needs. We really got to see another side of the city that most people wouldn't see, which make this tour more interesting. At times we felt a little rushed but trying to see as much as we could meant we kept moving. Tour is ideal for history , cultural and the out of the normal visitor.

Fantastic tour! We asked to see real people live/work, Khoa gave us exactly that. We rode bikes thru jungle to see homes/farms. Met locals. Saw incense being handmade, brick and coconut fiber mfg., coconuts being processed for oils & candies. Cruised up Mekong River. Had delicious homemade meal, got paddled thru jungle in wooden canoe. Bit strenuous due to heat. But perfect tour for anyone wanting to see real life in Mekong Delta. Took 55 tours on World Cruise, this was one of the best by far!

Excellent overview of Saigon in short time. Visited 2 sites about U.S. withdrawal & Khoa played video of helo evacuation while on roof of CIA bldg. We strolled a market on riverbank to see locals sell goods from their houseboats. We drove thru rich & poor neighborhoods, then roamed an open air market. Fascinating! We asked to see real life not tourist sites and that's what we got. We'd recommend Khoa very highly. Only con - we had some trouble understanding him at times, but overall not a problem.

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.

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!!

Our guide (Khoa) was articulate, knowledgeable and friendly. He tweaked the tour at our request to emphasize some off the beaten path sites highlighted by a native lunch served at a homestay seemingly deep in the woods. We enjoyed various modes of transport, got close up looks at how Delta folks live and work, and were informed and entertained by Khoa's stories. In addition, he was forthright with answers to our wide-ranging questions. Highly recommend this tour, and Khoa.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fazleabbas, I am very surprised about your review. On the tour, I took you and your friends to many main attractions in Saigon such as the Unification palace, the Post Office where you bought and posted postcards, Notre Dame Cathedral and local market where you bought some fruits with reasonable prices. I was very flexible about the itinerary and had to ensure you got back in time for your departure. As you know, your ship departed punctually at 6pm. Thanks and sincerely, Khoa

My wife and I took a private tour of the Cu Chi tunnels with Khoa and were very pleased with the efficient way he organised the event, including agreeing the vehicle specification with us in advance of the tour. Khoa was very knowledgeable on all the historical events we were keen to learn about and had prepared films and display material to explain to us the subject history in a clear and concise manner. We can recommend Khoa to anyone looking for a guide to the events around HCMC [Saigon].

Fantastic Adventure! Had a wonderful day with Khoa, full of information and fun. Khoa is very accommodating and very easy company. He will show you interesting sites, sharing his deep knowledge of history and even sing to you upon request! He also has a good heart - during our tour, as we were waiting for our car, a man on the busy street had a motorcycle accident. In seconds, Khoa rushed out to offer assistance and helped to move the man and his motorcycle out of harms way. You will be in good hands!

This was an excellent tour. My husband is a Vietnam veteran and our guide was very sensitive to this.

Khoa (Kevin) was an excellent guide. We went around in a minibus, which was a good choice ... although we normally appreciate walking. Khoa is knowledgable, engaged and speaks a very good english. And a very nice person. He was very flexible towards our interests, while his personal ambition was also to show us parts of HCMC life that is not normally on the turistic agenda. We appreciated that a lot. We both saw the central district 1 and 3 ... and also saw the new neighbourhoods in district 7.

This is a no brainer if you are wondering whether to organise a private shore excursion or to go with the cruise. The only small mishap was when Khoa could not locate the driver who had apparently gone to another port down the road. Once we were on our way, everything was smooth sailing. Thanks Khoa!

Khoa provided detailed instructions a few weeks before our tour and he was waiting for us before the designated time. He gave an excellent tour, which was packed with sites (more than I had seen on a prior shore excursion run by a cruise ship). Khoa brought us to a local restaurant that served authentic food at a reasonable price, and also took the van and us across the river on a barge to see both the old and new city development. I would highly recommend Khoa to anyone visiting Vietnam.
