This tour was a highlight of my time in Saigon. Tu is probably the best tour guide out of all of the million tour guides in Vietnam. He is smart, compassionate, interesting, and a great singer, too! Everything listed on the tour was delivered, and yet there never felt like a rush, which I appreciated. Other things I greatly appreciated: the air-conditioning and WiFi equipped bus, the smoothness of all transportation, and the delicious food we had along the way. Seriously, this tour is as good as it gets. My personal highlights were the snake wine we got to try and the quiet bike ride through the village. I highly recommend!
