Our family of 5 had a great day with Sharmay on a half day tour. We were met by a driver and van. The van was new and very spacious and the driver was excellent and drove very safely. Sharmay is a delight - energetic and positive and she took us to some wonderful places. She was also very flexible as to what we wanted to do. Sharmay was a breath of fresh air as compared to the overpriced and regimented shore excursions organised by our cruise ship. A very big thank you to Sharmay for a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, thank you very much for your beautiful review. I am happy you had a great day in HCMC, and that's my most precious rewards. Looking forwards to seeing your family next time in other unexplored parts of the south. Warm regards, Sharmay

Very enjoyable and informative. We were able to see many interesting sites in a short period of time, thanks to Sharmay's knowledge of the sites we visited. We were able to go at our own pace and stop if we saw something of interest. We would highly recommend taking a guided tour and look forward to our next one. Thankyou. Robert & Toom.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, dear Robert and Toom. I am glad you had a nice afternoon exploring more interesting sites of the city. Have a great day! Sharmay

We had a tour with Sharmay for 2 full days. It was above our expectations. Sharmay was very organized and we had a very personalized service. Sharmay has lot's of energy and is really fun to be with. She gave us more time than expected. We would highly suggest that you utilize her as a guide. We do not think you could be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice review, Richard. I am happy to have accompanied your group during your visit in Saigon and hope to see you again in your next trip to Vietnam (maybe in other beautiful places like Mui Ne, Cam Ranh and Dalat). Happy Holidays! Sharmay

Sharmay was great. She customized the tour for us, guided us with a smile, warmth and energy. Led us across streets, threaded us thru scooter brigades, and showed us local markets ... even bargaining for us. Treated us to coffee, ice cream and even a couples massage. Sharmay is delightful... has good command of English ... and lots of knowledge to share. Don't miss out... hire Sharmay!!!

Sharmay is a lovely, intelligent, polite, energetic and very well organised tour guide. This was our first time engaging a local guide, and I can't recommend Sharmay enough for a family visit to HCM. We were introduced to the city in one day that would have otherwise taken us 3 days, yet it seemed so relaxed the whole day. Thanks for a great day out.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear Simon for your great review. I am happy that your family had a nice time in HCMC. Your family's enjoyment of the tour is my greatest reward. Warm regards, Sharmay

Sharmay is a first rate guide, full of energy, enthusiasm and knowledge. We booked a two day tour of HoChiMin and the Mekong, and they were two fabulous days with memories that will last a life time. The two days were completely tailored to our requirements and gave a great insight into Vietnam, I highly recommend any tour with Sharmay running it. Without a doubt this was money well spent, we got so much out of a guided tour, and if we return booking further time with Sharmay would be a must do.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barry, Thank you a lot for your great review. I am happy to have delivered a nice tailored tour for you and Sara. Next time, I will show you more secret sea paradises, which are 20-40 minutes from the airports. I know you both love the whispers of the waves ;) Warm regards, Sharmay

Having read so many good reviews we had high expectations of Sharmay for her tours, and amazingly she exceeded all of those. We were traveling with a six-year-old child who was not always feeling well but Sharmay was very thoughtful and made sure we felt very comfortable the whole time. Sharmay helped make our experience in Saigon a great one and was always flexible, thoughtful and in great spirits. We consider her our friend in Vietnam and would recommend her to anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kevin and Debbie, Thank you very much for your nice review of my tours. It was too a fun time for me as I really loved those trips with your little adventurous Emily and you two global travellers. You are a perfect image of parents in my eyes that you have helped grown independence, good manner and confidence in your little daughter. Next time when you come back to Vietnam, I would recommend exploring the route Mui Ne, Nha Trang and Da Lat. Warm regards, Sharmay

We had an awesome day with Sharmay. She has great energy and made us feel welcome in Vietnam immediately. We loved the shopping areas she took us to and the lunch she organized. She had good insight in the history of the Reunification Palace and even organized a massage in the middle of the tour (though tell them if you need a gentle massage as it was more of a deep tissue one). What a great introduction in our first day ever in Vietnam!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you very much for your nice review. Your family's pleasure of the trip is my greatest rewards. I am looking forwards to your next trips in Vietnam, so that I will be able to introduce your group more beautiful sites of the south of Vietnam. Thank you and kind wishes, Sharmay

Sharmay Tran was a GREAT guide/interpreter. We were extremely nervous about visiting the Vietnamese side of our family, since we do not speak Vietnamese. Sharmay was warm, friendly, and extremely personable. On our last day, she showed us around Saigon and did an excellent job. We would advise anyone thinking about booking her to do so quickly, as we feel that she is the best guide/interpreter that we have ever used. THANK YOU SHARMAY for making our once in a lifetime trip to Vietnam so wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Dave & Nga, for your nice review. I am so happy to have been a part of your very first trip of family reunification. There are a lots of beautiful sites of Vietnam that you haven't discovered yet this time, and I'd definitely like to show them to you in your next trip to the country. Warm regards, Sharmay

Tour with sharmay was really great as she knows HoChiMinh very well. She was able to adapt to local weather to avoid being under heavy rain with and still discovering HoChiMinh. Thanks Sharmy for this great visit, and for sure i recommend her if you want to discover HoChiMinh.

Incredible day with Sharmay. If you only have one day in Vietnam, make it this tour. A complete whirlwind from the classic sights to dancing in a park, whizzing through traffic on the back of a scooter, eating crazy ice cream and learning how to cross the road in Ho Chi Minh (not so easy...). Sharmay is a live wire and so much fun, that we fell in love with her beautiful country right there on day 1

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high recommendation, dear Dagmar. I am happy to have met you and your family, it was too a fun day for me. I am looking forwards to seeing you again in your next trip to Vietnam. Warm regards, Sharmay

Sharmay's 1/2 Day Tourist, 1/2 Day Local Tour was incredible!!! I wish I could do it all over again! My favorites were the local things that she did with us like walking through markets and neighborhoods where there were no other tourists and eating local food - the Bahn Mi was to die for!! And she took us for the best massage I've ever had in my life. I highly recommend Sharmay and this tour. Seeing Saigon from Sharmay's perspective has made Saigon my favorite port so far on our 66 day cruise!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, dear Christy, for your recommendation. I have uploaded all of the edited photos to the link and hope you will enjoy them. Much love from Vietnam, Sharmay

Sharmay was outstanding. She showed us around parts of the city that were off the beaten path. We were introduced to great street food, fantastic ice cream and local coffee. A true experience of local culture. She sensed who we are and what we wanted and created an experience beyond our expectations. A wonderful young woman with many talents. We highly recommend her for your tours.

Sharmey's tours were the best of all worlds. First she returned all messages immediately, which is always a good sign. Next, she was spot on to my needs. If a day got too long with touring she would send me off for a message. She was flexable and extraordinarily learned about all of the history of Ho Chi Minh City as well as the culture of Vietnam. She defiately underpromised and overdelivered. Eager to please Sharmey is defientaly the best tour guide ever!
