Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s biggest and busiest city, but this tour takes all the hassle out of sightseeing with hotel pickup, lunch, and air-conditioned transport. See Notre Dame Cathedral, Thien Hau Temple, and Reunification Palace; shop for souvenirs at Ben Thanh Market; and visit the Fito Museum and War Remnants Museum.
  • See all of Ho Chi Minh City’s most visited attractions
  • Delicious lunch of Vietnamese noodle soup (pho)
  • Great value tour, including hotel pickup, lunch, and entrance fees
  • A small group of up to 12 people ensures a personalized tour
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, travel aboard an air-conditioned minivan into the heart of Chinatown. Jump out to explore the lively district on foot and admire its colorful shop fronts and beautiful temples. Visit the 19th-century Thien Hau Temple, before heading to Ben Thanh Market, where you’ll have time to browse the myriad stalls and perhaps pick up some unique souvenirs. You will also have a chance to explore the Fito Museum and learn all about traditional Vietnamese medicine. Enjoy a typical Vietnamese lunch of noodle soup (pho) and then continue to the War Remnants Museum, one of the country’s most important museums, which houses some impressive military equipment, including fighter planes, tanks, and weaponry. Finally, take in some of Ho Chi Minh’s architectural landmarks, including Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Opera House, and Central Post Office. Your tour ends in central Ho Chi Minh City.

The only saving grace of this tour is the Tour guide, Thuong Vu. I had no problem approaching her because she is friendly. Thuong is very knowledgeable when it comes to Vietnam's history. She's good in English too so she was able to explain to me the description of each tourist
