Morning itinerary

7:30 AM

We will pick you up at your accommodation, then, we’ll go straight to one of our favorite spots for a local breakfast of champions. With renewed energy, you will visit the Nguyen Thien Thuat Apartment Complex. Visiting this place will be a great way to get to know more about our Vietnamese culture and understand how 3 generations of a family can live together in one single flat.

A 5 minute stroll will take us to the Ban Co Market where you can experience the vibrant and authentic local market life.

Next up is a stop at the Cheo Leo Cafe where we’ll enjoy a Vietnamese coffee before we take our motorbikes to a weapons-concealing bunker - an unusual yet fascinating insight into the history of Saigon. And yes, we’ll make sure you get to have the opportunity to crawl inside the bunker. In that same spirit, we will pause at the Thich Quang Duc statue to relive one the most emotional moments of the war. After all that, the beautiful Jade Emperor Pagoda is our last stop before having lunch.

11:45 AM

There is no better way to taste real Vietnamese food than with a home-cooked meal.

12:30 PM - 1:00 PM

We will arrive back at your accommodation. Don't forget to give our guides a hug and keep in touch. It will be an experience to remember and we hope you will leave with a new friend made.

Afternoon itinerary

12:30 PM

We will pick you up at your accommodation. First things first, we take a ride straight a local family’s home for home cooked for lunch. A great way to gain energy for the amazing adventure ahead!

The beautiful Jade Emperor Pagoda is our first stop after lunch. After, we will go to the Nguyen Thien Thuat Apartment Complex. On the way there, we will stop by Thich Quang Duc statue to relive one the most emotional moments of the war. To help you understand even more, our next stop is a weapons-concealing bunker which is an unusual yet fascinating insight into the history of Saigon.

Heading back, we’ll return to the apartment complex and explore this place a bit more in-depth before taking a walk to our favorite Cheo Leo Ca Phe to try some true Vietnamese-style coffee.

Fully energized, we will take advantage of the afternoon timing to have some food, as most street food places Saigon will open around 4pm. One of those places is the Ho Thi Ky Flower Market, which is not only known for its fresh flowers but also for a surprisingly wide selection of Vietnamese food specialties. Let’s give them a try before heading home!

5:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We will arrive back at your accommodation. Don't forget to give our guides a hug and keep in touch. It will be an experience to remember and we hope you will leave with a new friend made.

Huge advantage to go with a well informed local guide. Lunch in a Vietnamese home was excellent - best ever meal in HCMC.

Thong, Coy, and Tim did a fabulous job driving us around Saigon on scooters. This excursion is a MUST when visiting Ho Chi Minh City. Their enthusiasm and knowledge was surpassed only by their navigation and driving skills. Don’t let the traffic scare you. Thanks, guys!!!!!
