Ted was an excellent guide, he gave a fantastic overview of the historical context and answered our questions (including queries we had related to other potential activities). The price we paid included entrance to the war museum and an iced coffee. The walk wasn't too tiring and the antiques stores were a fun quirky touch.

This was an amazing trip for us and our friends. Our guide Vincent was very informative and good fun. We saw this vibrant city in a different light, scooting through all the madness on the roads. What an experience! We stopped at various interesting places, including a local market where we purchased fresh fruit for our 2 drivers who were vey appreciative. Thanks for a great day, Vincent. From your Scottish friends.

Shore Excursion in Ho Chi Minh City
, Feb 2020
We took a shore excursion with this company to visit the highlights of Ho Chi Minh City. We met Bao, our tour guide at the port and noted that it is a 1.5 hour drive to/from the port to Ho Chi Minh City. While there, we visited Chinatown, Beautful Lady Temple, War Renaments Museum, and had coffee on the 50th floor of the Bitco Financial Tower. An elegant lunch was served at the Mandarin Restuarant, which our group totally enjoyed. We also visited a Lacquer factory and took a break to sample Vietnam coffee at a store (tourist traps). Please make note that traffic in the city is very busy so it is important to ensure that you have ample time to return to the port. We arrived 15 minutes before the ship was scheduled to leave. Overall, it was a nice tour and more time is needed to appreciate this city.
Our guide put as much time into his facebook page, or whatever social media link he was using as in introducing us to Ho Chi Minh . Didn't have the knowledge of the city to be able to adapt to our preferences and whilst Tet holiday did create some limitations it was clearly a formula not so much a private tour .Having had first class experiences in Taipei and Manila with Viator this was not of the same standard at all
Our guide, Sarah, was a very enthusiastic young lady and our driver was excellent in the chaotic traffic. Meeting her at the port was easy and our return was prompt. We saw all we wanted with ample time when we wanted. She seemed to know how long we needed at each stop and we never felt rushed. Had a great lunch and later some wonderful Vietnamese coffee. She had us posing for pictures and enjoying it, something we seldom do. We are a couple in our late 60's. We did little shopping at our request but walked through all the markets and could stop where we wished. She was quite knowledgeable about everything and answered all our questions. The new year's celebrations were beginning and we learned so much about that. It was a great day! Thanks, Sarah!
Enjoy a private full-day tour in bustling Ho Chi Minh City, where your guide will take you to some of the best highlights that this shore excursion has to offer. Lunch and attraction entrance fees are included in this tour.

This was a very nice photoshoot. The photographer was very knowledgable and took great photos. She took her time to explain about the different locations and she was fun to be with.

Private Ho Chi Minh City Shore Excursion from Phu My Port
From $120.45 (Price varies by group size )
, Feb 2020
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Met was just brilliant, friendly and informative. We had excellent communication before the tour, which I unfortunately did not pick up as the internet on the ship was terrible. However, after reading reviews on this site I did know to meet outside the port gates. I was worried before hand about the timings as Ho Chi Minh City is a large distance from the port. I did not need to be concerned as Met made sure we were back in plenty of time. This was made clear before we even set off!. I would thoroughly recommend this tour for price, comfort. information and most of all enjoyment. Thank you Met.
We had an excellent guide by the name of Andy who was local to the city and knew a lot about the area as well as having a great sense of humour and good English. We also had a separate driver was very good and had a very comfortable air conditioned car.
Andy took us to all the sites that were on the itinerary as well as ones that we asked for such as the Hard Rock Cafe and we cannot praise him more as an excellent guide who kept to the time and itinerary (even if we took longer at some than others!).
If you do this trip then do ask for Andy as he will ensure that you get your money’s worth and have an enjoyable time - highly recommended.
Our city tour with Met from Maximus Tours was perfect. She met our party of 8 at the port in a cool and spacious van. Met was very knowledgeable about all of the important sights to see in Ho Chi Minh City. We had a delicious lunch at a small Vietnamese restaurant that was wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Met!
