Trishhaw ride was incredible. Pho was really good and the spring rolls were amazing. Thi is an fantastic guide both for the group and also us, the way she interacts with everyone individually. All of us say the same.
The towels and water were also very nice to get all day.
My view of Vietnam has totally changed for the better. I highly recommend Thi as an ambassador + teacher + guide.

This tour was outstanding. Our guide was very knowledgeable, smart, funny and just a very nice guy. The trishaw ride was fantastic. I did not think I was going to like Saigon but I was so wrong. I loved my day there. Thank you!
Don't like tours to wholesale markets. They are interesting but we would rather do something else.
I think this was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Thank you for everything. I will tell everyone on Cruise Critic about it. I will also go to Tripadvisor and relate what a good tour company I think you are. And your name is perfect: Smile! I loved it as soon as I saw it. Keep up the good work.
You made my trip to Saigon the best! Thank you!
Jane - Raifsnider - USA - Mar 2017
Mr. Anh is one of the best tour guides we have ever had. His narration during the 1.5 hour bus ride made the time fly by. He was friendly and well organized. A great group together. The bus was new and very comfortable, 1st class. Really enjoyed the wildness on the trishaw. It was longer and better than one in a previous tour.
