In our private tours, guests are accompanied by professional local tour guides. 

Ho Chi Minh Private Tours - Quality Over Quantity

  • Flexibility: In a group tour, you'd have to follow the assigned schedule of the tour organizer without flexibility. You may want to spend more time at a spectacular spot to take more photos and less time in the next places, but joining group tours, you will be rushed and cannot see things at your own pace.
  • Save time: In private tours, you do not need to waste your precious time waiting for other people as in a group tour. You will maximize your time to travel and discover the beauties of the city. The tour starts the moment you get picked up. In contrast to group tours, you will be driven around the city waiting for the tour operator to pick different people up from other hotels.
  • Exclusive services: You will experience the tour with a private vehicle, with your own Ho Chi Minh private tour guide who can discuss with you personally about the history, local lifestyle, traditions and answer your in-depth questions. In a group tour, everyone shares 1 tour guide.
  • Travel only with people who matter: You may feel happier when traveling with your families and friends and enjoy the most memorable moments; instead of with the strangers from other places with many lifestyles, cultures, and points of view.

I love my tour guide Tam feom I Tour. He was so smart and fun. We've learned about the local culture and history thanks to him. He spoke very good English which I really appreciated. It was the best tour experience I've ever had, way better than any cookie cutter tours
