Tour: #128838, City tour and Cu Chi tunnel for tourist from Cruiser (Pick up in the city), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam    view tour
Date: Apr 20/18

Our group of four visited both the Cu Chi tunnels and Ho Chi Minh City. We were met punctually by a comfortable, air conditioned vehicle. The first tour was of the Cu Chi Tunnels. This not to be missed as it demonstrates the tenacity of the Vietnamese fighting the French and the US. We then visited the main sights of Saigon. Vi was very informative in her explanation of both the tunnels and Ho Chi Minh City. An incredible experience made exceptional by our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Morris, Thank you very much for your kind words. I had a great time with you. Thank you for being so nice and friendly.

Suffice it to say, you will NOT find a better guide in HCMC/Saigon than Vi. She is stunning inside and out, super friendly and knowledgeable. speaks great English, and has a smile that you cannot help sharing. Her trip to the Mekong Delta was full of surprises and an utterly enjoyable experience, in great part because of her bubbly personality and charm. Vi went out of her way to be certain that my questions had satisfactory answers (they did), and to give me a real taste of life on the Delta. Great one!!

I don't believe that you can ask for a better guide than Vi. She helped plan the perfect tour, considering the limited time our ship was in port for Saigon. Vi met our party of 4 outside the dock gates (normal procedure) in her van that was equipped with Wi Fi. The Wi Fi had better reception then our ship. We had a very nice conversation on our drive to Saigon and Vi took us to a very fine restaurant for lunch (Bloom) which did not have MSG in their food (per our request). Service and food was excellent.

Vi is very professional, charming and a hoot to have as your guide. She is flexible and knows her topics well. We had to unexpectedly change our transport to meet her in the center of the city and she had already anticipated the change and made the right arrangements. When we asked her at the last moment to take us to a gallery showing original propaganda art, she immediately took us to a terrific gallery where my collector son was able to get exactly what he wanted. In short, Vi is terrific.

Our second tour with Vi at the Cu Chi tunnels was a highlight of our holiday. Vi took us all around the area and knew exactly where to steer our family away from the crowds. Her knowledge an of the area and the history of the tunnels was extensive. On our way back to the city, Vi took us to a local Banh Mi stall - which we loved. She also went out of her way to find a restaurant which served Broken Rice - as we were told it was a 'must have' in Vietnam. We highly recommend Vi as a tour guide! Thanks!

Vi was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide - always very friendly and chatty, sharing many stories about the culture and traditions of the local Vietnamese. Vi took us to many farm areas where there were shops with local produce with no pressure to buy any goods. We were taken to fruit farming areas, a fish farm, rode in a moto-taxi and had a local boat ride. A great lunch to finish our tour - Vi chose a wide variety of local, authentic Vietnamese foods which we enjoyed very much. A great tour!

The tour with Vi was just what I was looking for—a taste of Saigon that I wouldn't necessarily see in the high tourist areas of District 1. Vi was the perfect host, showing the many shopping stalls, an authentic coffee and noodle soup breakfast, and finishing with the temple of 10,000 Buddha's. Despite the rain, this was still a great way to see more of the local culture and have Vi share some great stories about the local people.

Vi is so fluent in English and so well read and worldly that you can talk to her about any subject. She's brilliant! And I say this as a professor that's used to being around well read and smart people. Worth hiring her just to get such an in depth glimpse of Vietnamese culture alone. She could frankly answer any question we had. Absolutely perfect! I wish we had such a guide in every country we visit! The tour itself was great: loved the flexibility, the vehicle, the attention to detail.

Very enjoyable day with Vi!! If interested in a "behind-the -scenes" look at Ho Chi Min City, book this "Stranger the Better" tour with pleasant & flexible Vi. She will take you to areas/sites of the city that are hard to navigate on your own but easy with this local guide. You will have special experiences that are not common for tourists. We had a fabulous one hour "Blind Massages" given by blind masseuses for $3.50 USD, saw Chinatown area and other areas of the city not usually on the standard tour.

Vi is an amazing guide, so kowledgeable and articulate on virtually any subject about Vietnam, past and present. She is also a lover of other cultures and perspectives, so a real joy to talk to. We did the Mekong Delta tour with her, and she very kindly picked us up early in the morning with breakfast, and woke us up pleasantly with her enthusiasm. The tour, on big boats, small boats, tuk tuks and on foot was fascinating, and felt private and special with Vi as our guide.

My wife and I had a wonderful tour with Vi in Mekong delta. Our tour included a boat ride on the river, an easy 7 km bike ride through narrow village lanes along fruit orchards and a Sampan boat ride through a canal. We had a memorable visit of the orchard of Mr. Hai, a man with a wonderful sense of humor, and a delicious Vietnamese meal in a local home. We enjoyed our time with Vi. She is very personable and pleasant. Our conversations with her helped us better understand the daily life in Vietnam.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much for your review. I had a fabulous day with you and your wife. All the best

Vi was great.Vietnam tour was great. We saw Cu Chi tunnels and Ho Chi Minh in the same day. It was a full day but plenty of time to do both. We got lost on the way to our first stop which turned out ok but that was part of why we hired a private tour so we didn't waste any time. Ended up with enough time for everything but was nervous when we started out that way. Vi knows a lot about Vietnam and taught us so much. Lunch in town was excellent and fun to enjoy local spot. Hire Vi, you wont be disappointed.

Vi was an excellent guide for my half day tour in Ho Chi Minh City on Nov. 6, 2015. She met me at my hotel at exactly the time we had agreed upon, and took me to places, as I'd requested, that I was not scheduled to see on my planned tour with a group later in the week. She was delightful to be with, took me to various restaurants and coffee houses to sample different Vietnamese foods, and to different parts of the city for unusual sights or experiences. This was just what I wanted in a private tour.
