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.

We had the chance with my family and friends to book 2 trips with OneTrip and we have to say it was one of our best experience. The guides are nice and friendly, it was a total immersion in the Vietnamese culture. We have never been disappointed by the food or activities proposed! Thank you again for this amazing experience!! You were the best!

We did a couple excellent tours with OneTrip in Saigon and have another to look forward to tomorrow in Hanoi. For the city tour, we had already seen the main sites in Saigon so our awesome guides Oggy and Khoa helped us figure out some other interesting places to see daily Vietnamese life and get some good street food instead. My husband and I were a bit nervous about riding the motorbikes in this crazy city but we ended up feeling safer than crossing the streets on foot. By the end of the tour we really felt we had learned a lot and made some new friends. Similarly, for our nighttime food tour our guides Thomas and Chris took very good care of us and emparted their knowledge of the city and culture with enthusiasm.

We had such a blast with our guides, Joy and Bao on the motorbike tour. They were so knowledgeable and kind and took us to places what we wouldn’t have found without local guidance. We learned a lot and also enjoyed the food market where they negotiated the price for us everywhere. Turned out Bao is also having tours to the Cu Chi Tunnels, and not to that spot where almost all tourists are going, but a bit further away on the countryside. I was so sad that we did not spend more days in HCMC and could not participate on that tour.
