Must do experience! Minh stands out from most tour guides. He makes sure that you will be getting an experience that he personally tailors to your preferences and needs. He looked after my as a valued guest - ensuring my care as we crossed the street, walked through the busy markets, and the tour followed a program that we chose together. He spent time to help me seek out and buy certain items in the market. Minh is connected to his community and this makes him uniquely able to deliver an experience that is relevant, informative and immersive. He even took the time to take me on the bus back to the centre - an experience I had wanted to do that was over and above the tour itself! I am so glad I chose Minh and had a wonderful time on this tour.

Highly recommend! This tour is really cool. Minh knows a lot about Chinatown in HCMC (he grew up here) and he conveyed those knowledge authentically and clearly. He is also good at sharing different interesting stories and urban legends of this area, and the whole tour is carefully designed to be interesting and informative. He would also personalized the tour for guests with different interests, which is thoughtful and considerate. By the way, the food he recommended are GREAT!!!

This was one of our best tours in Saigon. We highly recommend taking this tour in order to really dig into this unique community with an insider’s perspective. Time flew by because of the great conversations we had with Minh — he grew up in this neighborhood and has deep knowledge and expertise of the community here as well as South Vietnam’s history. He was also extremely kind and thoughtful. Minh personalized the tour based on our interest in history and culture. We started the tour with a delicious breakfast, and covered many places throughout the next several hours. Minh pointed out many places that appeared like any other place in Saigon, yet had a lot of historical significance. We spent the last part of the tour chatting away about Vietnamese culture and history at a beautiful, hidden coffee shop. After the tour Minh gave us several recommendations for where to eat and other interesting spots to check out, and they were all excellent. I highly recommend Minh and this tour to anyone visiting Saigon.

Don't miss this chance if you're interested in Chinese culture! Minh prepared by asking us what our interests were and customized the tour to include those items! We visited the well-known and local temples, sampled coffee in a hidden coffee shop, ate a delicious lunch at a local restaurant and Minh shared some great insights about the history of Chinese in Saigon. And to top it all Minh took some great pictures and video that he sent us after! He also sent us some recommendations for the rest of the stay. Highly recommend!

Minh was the highlight of our 2 week trip to Vietnam. My mom grew up in Cholon and hadn't been back in 44 years and Minh customized the entire tour to help her find special places from her past which is no small feat considering the amount of time that had gone by and the things that had changed in that time. He even consulted his aunt to help my mom locate a swimming pool that had been long built over after our tour was technically over. He continued to be helpful via text the next day as my family continued on looking for a few other significant locations for my mom. He really cared about my family's experience and his ability to speak so many different languages fluently was an amazing help as well! We ate at an amazing street food vendor, had some of the best Vietnamese coffee I've ever had (with a lovely view) and we went to some really beautiful pagodas that I would've never found on my own. This was my first time in Saigon and I can't imagine anyone visiting the city without exploring Cholon with Minh! I've never been one for tours but this didn't feel like a typical tour. Minh felt like a friend taking you around a city he grew up in and genuinely loves. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Minh is super friendly and great at his job. I was able to see parts of Chinatown I wouldn’t be able to on my own. This was by far my favorite tour in Ho Chi Minh City. I left with so much knowledge about Chinatown and the city overall. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone. Minh also took photos during the tour and made a recap video for me. Very sweet and kind.
