Thien was awesome. She took my wife, my baby and I on an undiscovered tour of Saigon. Very accommodating, knew her stuff and was really personable. We wished we could of stayed longer with her and chatted at the end but we had to rush off to the airport. I would definitely go with her again if I had the chance.

FYI this trip was done before pandemic. We did 3 trips all WithLocals and they were all amazing. I'll definitely be using that com[any where ever we travel now.

Huyen was a great guide and made it easy for us to get to things that
we would not have seen if left to ourselves. We enjoyed our time.
Thanks Huyen
An excellent introduction to Ho Chi Minh City

My partner and I enjoyed our 90 minute (although it was actually 110
min!) tour of Saigon with Son. What a great introduction to the city
and Son was a fantastic guide. He answered all of our questions. Thank
you Son!
