Tony T. was the most enthusiastic guide we have ever hired. You could actually see how much he loves his job and is thrilled to show, as he would say, "My City". Tony T. took us to the Cu Chi tunnels and was very informative. After spending time at the Cu Chi Tunnels, Tony T. took us back to Ho Chi Minh City and give us a tour of the City. We would highly recommend hiring Tony T. to those wanting to see The City.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kindness! I am very happy and interesting to be your local tour guide in "My City". Saigon and I miss you now! All the best! Tony

Tony is very knowledgeable, and just plain fun to be around. It's hard to find someone who is both! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Tony, and learned so much about the language, the history, the economics - you name it, Tony knew it. The kids (13 and 11) also enjoyed Tony's approachable demeanor and interesting facts and stories. And (drumroll please) he found my husband fresh durian! No one else on our trip could find it since apparently it's not the right season, but Tony did!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Christine, Such a super nice review! It is sooo great to hear that your family did enjoy everything from the tour so far. I am very happy to have your family as the first group of the local new year with lots of laughing... A special THANKS to your family! Best Wishes! Tony

Our recent trip to Vietnam was one we will remember forever. Tony was a fantastic guide. My Dad loved his history lesson on the way to Saigon. He was very understanding of our group he planned the day perfectly and made changes when the kids tired of site seeing. The lunch provided was one of our highlights. Carved foods were amazing the chicken made of a pineapple was the best. Tony helped us barter and get a great deal on souvenirs. We were his 99 tour I hope everyone gets a chance to meet Tony. Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a super nice review! It's so great to hear that all your family members did enjoy the tour so far. SPECIAL THANKS for your words!

We would give Tony 6 stars if we could, as he exceeded our expectations! He was informative, gracious and accommodating. He was flexible and provided additional options to the tours that he sensed would be of interest to us. Although we had been in Saigon 9 years ago, he showed us the progress and development of the current Saigon. He was one of the BEST and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

We enjoyed our tour and found Tony to be informative and chatty. We took our 4 teenage children who especially enjoyed the visit to the coconut factory. During the visit to the farm we enjoyed the fresh fruit and the opportunity to make fresh sugar cane juice. There was also some local entertainment but unfortunately as it was in Vietnamese it was a bit lost on us. Overall and long but enjoyable day.

Unfortunately we found it difficult to understand the tour guides English. The tour of the Cu chi tunnels was very disappointing didnt really feel that we had been given enough time or information. Second day tour of Ho Chi Min was very much better

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir and Madam, Thanks for your rating! I am glad to hear you like the city tour very much. Yes, I accepted we maybe did not get enough time in the tunnels (1 hour 47 minutes totally - GPS checked) because of the tunnels closing time. We returned and reached the cruise around 8:00pm on the heavy traffic jam day as well. Best Wishes! Tony

Instead of travelling to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City on our cruise ship excursion, we chose to skip the streets clogged with motorcycles and set off for the Mekong delta. Picked up at the port, we road 2.5 hrs to the delta for a delightful day learning about life in the delta, travelling on motorized and paddled boats, seeing a private folkloric show, picking and tasting tropical fruits at the orchard of the guide's uncle. Gourmet lunch-vegetarian specially for us!

Tony is such a very informative and entertaining tour guide totally no dull moment! From the time we boarded our very own personal private car we felt like a VIP as he definitely takes good care of us and made us try majority of the local delicacies and street foods made by local housewives. I fell in love with the country so much and having Tony by our side was incredible. We weren't very familiar will all their customs and Tony was there to let us experience how it's like living in Vietnam.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yeah! We've got the great time in a long day trip together. Will miss two of you so much because of some special things...!!! Best Wishes! Tony T.

FABULOUS!!! In the 70 countries we have visited & countless tour guides,Tony ranks as one of our top 3 guides! A wealth of knowledge, Tony also shared his unforgettable personal stories about his family, growing up during the Vietnam war as a little boy, & more. The Cu Chi Tunnels & Mekong Delta is one of the most interesting & exciting tours we have ever experienced! A long day, but a MUST for those who have seen the basic Ho Chi Min City tour, & want incredible adventure & insight to Mekong village life

We had a fantastic tour by with Tony in the Mekong Delta. Everything worked well despite having to have some flexibility due to the weather. He took us to some great family run enterprises where we got to see the rice paper making etc. All the food we had was great in particular both of the lunches. The tour was just for two of us so we felt well looked after and not herded around. The wet market is a must. Definitely recommend doing this tour especially if you need to maximize your time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much for visiting my hometown and give me a chance to introduce the villages @ Mekong Delta! Do you remember the two ladies who sell the fried rice cakes where we'd stopped then made and fried some cakes by ourselves? They did talk to me about you (so clever, friendly... you did make the perfect cakes, better than me a lot....) That is my sweet memory as well! Best Wishes! Tony

We just spent one of the greatest days of our lives thanks to our guide Tony, who took us for an action-packed one-day tour of the Mekong Delta, or as Tony calls it, "my hometown." Certainly, having someone with local knowledge is a big advantage. But Tony's warmth, humor, preparation and attention to detail made our day even more enjoyable. We did so much in a single day! Tony is a gracious, kind, considerate and genuinely funny person. Being able to spend time with him was a privilege and a joy.

Tony is the best !!! He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, funny and kind. We had a limited amount of time in Saigon, so this tour was perfect. We covered the Cu Chi Tunnels then went to Mekong Delta where we saw a local honey farm, rode in horse and carriage, heard local music and went down the river in local boats..

Tony took us on tour of the Cuchi tunnels. What an AMAZING day! He was waiting & met us right as we exited the ship (their company is allowed inside the cruise port & some aren't). VERY EASY! It does take a while to drive to the city from this port but worth the trip. Tony had a driver (very nice van BTW!) & was able to share things on the drive. So informative. Loved all the stops and info. He spoke great English. Shared family history, knew shortest lines, food stops, + our wants. HIGHLY recommend TONY!

Tour: The Shore Excursion: Mekong Delta Tour, Vung Tau, Vietnam
Date: Nov 3/16

Great tour and great food during the tour. The Mekong delta is a very interesting place. Tony wanted to show us the area where he was born. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating so that we had to stay with the more traditional tour. But that was still very good. Being able to set your own pace and not have to wait for the loading/unloading tour bus of the cruise line's shore excursion, makes a private tour worthwhile. And a friendly and knowledgeable guide as Tony makes it unforgettable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear MrJon Wagner, I am so happy to see your review in the morning. It's sweeter and better than a delicious breakfast a lot! I am so lucky to be your local tour guide in my home-town. Best wishes and thanks for all! Tony

Tony was a super guide! We have limited time for our shore excursion and he helped us to use it in the best way. Trip to Mekong Delta is really amazing! I highly recommend it. The place where we had lunch is such a nice restaurant and the food was delicious!! Tony is a very nice guy, who explained us about his culture and traditions, and definitely made we really enjoy our visit in Vietnam.

Tony was very cheerful and pleasant. His driver and Tony were professional. The driver drove safely and helped us get in and out of his van. Tony gave us a tour that we wanted. We visited several sites that were not visited by many tourist. He recommended 3 shopping places that were great and met our interests. Tony was informative and increased our knowledge of his country. Tony and his driver were excellent.

This was fantastic. Tony was an excellent guide giving us a great insight into the history and current culture of Vietnam and the region. We loved his conversation and would love to have him show us through the rest of Vietnam. He paced the trip according to our needs and we really felt it was tailored to our interests.

Tha excursión was very good and the tour guide excellent. The only problem was that he did not check the port we docked in and was waiting for us in another port at 70 miles distance. We called him and we met downtown 2 hours later. Everything worked out fine after that. He tried to make up for the mistake and he really did his best effort. Great Tony!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Ana Quinonez, I am so happy to hear from you. I'd like to send A SPECIAL THANK to you and your group because of your kindly understanding. It's so nice to be the local guide of your group in Vietnam. P/s: Hope to recieve your group again when coming back Vietnam in the future. I'll try more and more in every service. Tony T.

Tony and his driver were prompt and he was clear on where to met him. Tony's agenda for the tour was very informative and interesting. The driving in Viet Nam can be scary but we never felt in danger. Tony's has personal insight to the Mekong Delta and can speak about personal experiences. We stopped at local stands to see and experience local flavor and see how people live. Tony's English were very good and we had no difficulties understanding his detailed explanations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Stacy and Rosan, Thank so much for your kind comment! I am so happy to see your feedback and will try more and more to give the better and better service to the customers in the future. Best Wishes! Tony T.

Tony was able to show my husband parts of Saigon that he remembered from serving there during the Vietnam War. He rearranged the schedule to make sure that this happened and also so we could have a special lunch. My husband had waited 45 years for this experience and Tony made it possible! True meaning of an "individualized" tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Marylou Burngarner, Thanks a lot for your very kind! First, I am so lucky enough to be the local guide of this tour. Second, I feel look like a family's member while travelling with your husband and you. I would like to send "A SPECIAL THANK" to your husband about the real information of Saigon in the past. It would help me a lot for my job in the future. Best Wishes! Tony T.
