Most companies are too busy showing you touristy spots
With 6 years in tourism industry, I have met tons of tourists and it is hard to believe what they are missing. Surely most tours introduce them to Ben Thanh Market, Notre Dame Cathedral,…
But they missed the boat ride watching sunrise with the real bustling floating market at background. They even missed our unique cyclo tour Sai gon. Pick your experience from half day Cu Chi Tunnel tour to the 2-day Mekong Delta tour or the evening foodie tour. You can also try out our unique Saigon Day Tour!

The day that we spent with Phuong was fantastic and we often think of her and the wonderful, enlightening experience that we shared.

Phuong is one of the friendliest people we’ve ever met, and her enthusiasm about Vietnamese culture and history is contagious. She went above and beyond to accommodate us during our tour. At the end of our tour Phuong felt like a friend rather than just a guide.
I first went on a private Mekong day tour with Phuong and lived that we went off the tourist trail. It was personalised, fascinating and a truly amazing experience. Phuong's English and knowledge are brilliant and she is a beautiful person.

The foods we tasted were delicious and unique, and especially the last location where we ate the snails (delicious) was completely hidden from the main street. We never would have found this location on our own which was full of locals and their friends, families enjoying a Thursday evening out on the town. The food was abundant and delicious, our guides friendly and knowledgeable, and the ride through the city on the back of their motorbikes so much fun.
It would not be possible to say how great this tour was. We have been in Vietnam for a week and Phoung Tran of XichLo was by far the best, most knowledgable and most courteous tour guide. Many tours do a good job, collect the money, everyone is happy. Phoung wants you to feel the real Vietnam--interact with local people and see how they live their lives. Phoung's attention to detail and concern for customer is frankly unlike anything I have ever seen.
