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.


Important

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.

Highly recommend Onetrip, since they have many good-looking tour guides :P Besides, the execution is good


My guide Liz was the absolute best, she went above and beyond to make this tour a good experience. She really focused on the things which interested me, and gave me lots of options on what to see and do. Liz spoke perfect english, was extremely knowledgeable about all the sites, and had such a good sense of humor. She was very patient and never made me feel rushed. I had such a good time, and recommend Liz and OneTrip for people traveling to Ho Chi Minh City.


I booked a tour with onetrip thru my sis recommendation as she had a great time. I was partner up with Quan who was knowledgeable in the historical places we visited. Quan spoke fluent English and was entertaining. We visited historical sites first and he took me to a local business that makes local goods out of rice flour. I had a really enjoyable experience and great time with Quan in this tour. Additionally he took me to a coffee place that is very popular with the locals. He didn’t mind staying longer than usual to show me even though the tour ended. It was a great way to end the tour in good coffee on a hot dayOverall I had a great time with Quan as my guide. He knows his facts and history about the tour. He was promp in his communication before AND after the tour. He also provided insight into the locals way of life that was not part of the tour. He made sure I wasn’t ripped off by drivers and made reservations for a pickup for me to the airport and provide the necessary information. Quan definitely went above and beyond the call of duty of a tour guide. I highly recommend Quan and would definitely ask to have him as my guide again when I return to Saigon.
