SaigonLovers

What's up, guys! My name is Ben. I and my brother are co-host of Saigon Taste Tours. I first discovered Saigon during my studies at University after leaving my hometown in rural Vietnam. I immediately became fascinated by the city's unique blend of culture, history, and delicious cuisine. My education was focused on tourism, and I have extensive experience working as a local English-speaking tour guide for various companies. But, I finally decided it was time to bring my own custom-tailored experiences to my guests, which is why I start creating my own local experience tours. My passion is to bring local experiences and to connect you with Vietnamese culture in a fun, distinctive way and be able to showcase highlights of unique places to travelers. It would be my pleasure to design a tour geared towards your personal taste and interests, whether they be historical monuments, street food, architecture, religion, or local workshops. I know how to show you the best part of my city. Let me be your guide to fulfill your Saigon Adventure Journey.

Morning tour: 7:30 AM - 11:30 AM & Afternoon tour: 13:30 PM - 17:30 PM You will get a taste of the town and local culture through our eyes. Being on the back of a scooter is super convenient to move and travel beyond typical tourist spots to a local neighborhood where few tourists have a chance to experience   We take you to some historical points that are a bit off the beaten path in District 3, 10, 5, 6, and 11. Every district has different personalities. District 3 is well-known as the richest area during the American war. We visit a memorial monument, historical buildings, and outdoor local market. We then head to district 10 to see the brilliant colors of the downtown at the wholesale flower market. We not only see the flowers but also walk down small alleys that lead to the food market where you have to try one bowl of "Bun Mam" which is the typical noodle soup Mekong Delta people for your breakfast and taste different fresh fruits. Next up, a quick transfer to China town gathering in District 5,6, and 11. You will be blessed at one of the oldest and most fascinating temples in Saigon and see one of the biggest and best markets.   Finally, on the way back to the hotel we will stop by the coffee shop to enjoy local coffee and see a secret underground weapons cellar of the Viet Cong army right in the coffee shop. In addition, last but not at least, on the way back hotel I will let you see quickly some tourist spots like REUNIFICATION PlACE, POST OFFICE, NORTRE DAME CATHEDRAL and we also could drop you off at the WAR MUSEUM if you want to visit it instead of at your hotel.
