The Experience

Looking to orient yourself in Saigon? We’ve got a student-volunteered city tour made just for you...literally!

We simply set you up with local university students who are experts at navigating their beloved city and you can request where you would like to go. This is a great way for the students to gain some experience while sharing their unique culture with people from around the world. It’s like having a new friend to show you around, so why not?

Recommended sites: Reunification Place, Notre Dame Cathedral, Post Office, War Remnants Museum, and other popular hang-out spots.

Detailed itinerary

8:00 AM - 12:00 PM / 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Our student-volunteered guide(s) will pick you up at your accommodation by scooter, taxi, or walking. It's up to you, but we highly recommend hopping on the back of their motorbike for a real Saigon experience.

This can be done in the morning hours from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, or after lunch from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Our guide(s) will take you to most of the famous tourist spots such as the Notre Dame cathedral, Central Post Office, Reunification Palace, and War Remnants museum.

If you have already been to the locations above, then simply tell our guides where else you would like to visit or what interests you in Saigon and they will work with you to see how you can make the most out of your time.


This is a donation-based tour that benefits the students directly. Guests will directly pay for all expenses during the tour. However...

  1. For the safety of our students, a non-refundable verification charge of USD1 will be required for each booking. All net proceeds will go towards training activities to prepare the students to be tour-ready.

  2. For those choosing the motorbike option, we recommend a minimum donation of USD5 to be given directly to the students at the end of the tour to cover motorbike expenses. It's not an obligation but we would hate to see any students incurring out-of-pocket expenses to provide you with an awesome time.

Our guides Bao and Trang were absolutely fantastic! This tour is an absolute must. Was such a great way to get the feel of the city and the food. Our guides were a wealth of information on the different origins of the foods we tried and the night was so much fun. Thanks again to Trang and Bao, such great memories!!

I used OneTrip before in Hanoi and I loved it.This afternoon city tour with a student guide was also exceptional. My guide, Bao, was knowledgeable and friendly. He showed my a side of Saigon that I would never have been able to discover on my own. In additional to the must-see sites, he took me to a back-ally coffee house that local students frequent. We had dinner at a restaurant that specialized in food from his home town. Off of this on a motorbike through the vibrant city of HCMC...what could be better!

The city tour in Saigon was excellent. Our student guides, Quan and Joy, were really friendly, spoke really good English and knew a lot about the history of the city. With these two good scooter drivers we saw many interesting places around the city, which we wouldn't have found without them. We learned many interesting details about Saigon. We recommend to take this student tour and hop on scooters!
