Cyclo tour came very handy to save time and we had Giang amazing local guide. He took us to must see places in the city and he has great knowledge of Vietnam history as a local person who experienced the country's past
We also loved the staff that took us around on the cyclos. They were so nice and we had so much fun taking photos with them. It was such a great way to see the landmarks of the city and a great way to spend our first day in HMC to get our bearings. Would highly recommend this tour company!
Cyclo operators rode carefully and well and the tour gave them sufficient time to rest and recuperate in hot weather. The tour guide Giang was entertaining, knowledgeable, talked clearly and approachable with questions.
Giana's English is great and he's very easy to understand. Our morning cyclo tour of Saigon was a highlight! We felt very safe - even with the crazy traffic, and our tours through the different markets were amazing.
