Overview
Explore the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon, as it's also still known, on this 3.5-hour private walking tour. Visit major attractions like the War Remnants Museum, learn about the city's history, and enjoy a Vietnamese snack. Your private guide also shows you hidden gems you might otherwise miss.
What to Expect
This tour has a duration of 3.5 hours and can start between 9am and 5:30pm, as it's a private tour for your group only.

Meet your local guide in front of the statue of the 'Burning Monk' (the Venerable Thich Quang Duc Monument), and start your tour with the intriguing story of this statue. Then head off on your sizzling exploration of the city. Wander past famous monuments while you listen to historical facts about Vietnam's rich history, and view exhibitions at the War Remnants Museum displaying old military equipment, including the Huey helicopter, as your guide sets the historical scene of the city. The good news is that with the same ticket, you can come back later and explore this history museum more on your own.

Pass Reunification Palace, also known as Independence Palace, a place that served as home and workplace of the president during the Vietnam War. On your way to the next must-see spot, make a stop at Bet Cafe, a park where street vendors set up stalls and sell snacks and coffee. Enjoy a delicious snack and a drink in a unique way: setting down a newspaper and taking a seat on the ground. Watch the local people interact while enjoying this very bohemian place.

Stroll on through the great history of Saigon. French colonists in the late 1880s built Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, considered to be a symbol of Saigon. This place is one of the few remaining proofs of Catholicism in the largely Buddhist Vietnam. Continue with a stop at the Central Post Office, and admire the elegant French architecture of this building, constructed in the late 19th century.

After these top sights, move on to the city's hidden gems. Thanks to your local host, you’ll also discover lesser-known places. Head to your next stop and take a walk on Nguyen Hue Street, considered one of the most beautiful in HCMC. On your way to the Old Market, make a little detour and walk along the Saigon riverbank. Listen to your guide's stories about city’s neighborhoods, and ask them more questions about the places you have visited.

Lastly, take a look at handicrafts at Ben Thanh Market. Admire the colorful stalls, enjoy the amazing smells, and practice your bargaining skills. Don’t forget to ask your private guide about the market’s interesting origin. Your tour ends here, but feel free to continue exploring the market independently. Your guide can also help you find a taxi or recommend the best route to get back to your hotel.

It was a lot of walking, but it was spread out throughout the day. The part about the foot paths is true, rarely flat pavement
