The local service provider was Grayline Vietnam Threeland Travel and of the innumerable tours we have booked with Viator since 2014, this was the worst experience of them all. Whilst the description said, this was a professional English speaking guided tour, we ended up with a guide whose language and diction were incomprehensible. The guide was unable to share any pertinent information regarding the sites we visited and seemed more interested in what was happening with other groups/ people around us. After a point, all the guide did was point at the board of the room in the Palace and just repeat that a couple of times. We ended up reading the information from the display boards ourselves. The visits to the other places were even worse. The Cathedral was closed which was not in their control, but all the guide did was - stand outside and point to the Cathedral and then say - lets go! No trivia or any historical information whatsoever! The post office right next door was a do as you wish situation and we ended up walking around by ourselves trying to see and comprehend what was significant about the place. Our Pho dining experience too was annoying as the guide by then wanted to finish the tour and leave and so we were rushed through the whole thing! All in all - a very lousy experience and we felt that we could have managed this on our own and there was really no need to hire someone to only take us from Point A to B!

Felt very rushed, guide had a very heavy accent which made it almost impossible to understand what he was saying.. Therefore, didn't get any of the history or narrative as we toured the city... Not keen, on being taken to a workshop making tourist products.. Felt obliged to buy something and being left alone in a local restaurant to fend for our selves at lunch time didn't make this tour any better... Hire a taxi and save your money by doing it yourselves..

I dont expect you to publish this - it's really for your information. Tour guide was good - picked me up on time etc but having experienced it, the content was strange. We went to the palace which was interesting - the cathedral is under renovation so that was skipped and had a look at the post office at which point the guide said we were running out of things to do as scheduled so he took me to the War Remnants Museum which was very interesting. From there to the market where I lasted about 3 minutes. In my view its not worth the visit - a large building with hundreds of small stalls all selling the same stuff. The temperature inside was so high it was unbearable. And then to the strangest part of all. I had not noticed when booking that the program included dinner. I should have mentioned I was the only one on the tour. It was 4.45 pm, hardly dinner time but despite my protest I was taken to a restaurant where I selected the smallest and safest item I could - deep fried spring rolls - ate half on my own and then asked to leave. I have used your tours often in many different locations and content and presentation have always been of high order - I recommend you to others. This one was an aberration so I think it needs some work - definitely get rid of the meal if nothing else.

Best way to start a vacation to Ho Chi Minh City. Got to hear about the history and how to get around the city. Tour guide knew all the answers to questions we asked, even those not pertaining to the tour.
