Like many, I chose this tour based on the reviews that I read on Trip Advisor.
I contacted Saigon Unseen via email prior to my arrival, set a date and time for the tour and Adam Hurley showed up right on time on his motorbike to show me around his adopted hometown.
Firstly, we chatted over a coffee and he produced a map [which he kindly left with me] to outline the sites we would visit, proposed an itinerary, asked me if there were any specific areas that I wanted to visit, and off we went.
For the next five hours, Adam took me [as I was surprisingly the only one that day] on a whirlwind, yet fascinating and exhaustive, tour of the city, from small neighborhood markets and temples to glittering new districts for the Vietnamese elite, as well as major sites [historically and architecturally speaking] with a few well-timed stops for picture taking, sampling of local food and drinks, or simply just to chill out in this madhouse of traffic that people call Saigon.
Taking this tour with Adam was not only extremely informative but also relaxed and unpretentious. By the end of the day, I truly felt part of this great city - maybe not pretty always, yet truly amazing thanks to the kind people who live there and who give it its pulse amidst this organized chaos.
Many thanks Adam and all the best for the New Year of the Dragon.
I will highly recommend you to anyone I meet!
