Private Ho Chi Minh City Shore Excursion from Phu My Port

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, 01 Cong xa Paris Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 700000 Vietnam

Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, built in the late 1880s by French colonists, is one of the few remaining strongholds of Catholicism in the largely Buddhist Vietnam. Located in Paris Square, the name Notre Dame was given after the installation of the statue ‘Peaceful Notre Dame’ in 1959. In 1962, the Vatican conferred the Cathedral status as a basilica and gave it the official name of Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica. Measuring almost 60 metres in height, the cathedral’s distinctive neo-Romanesque features include the all-red brick façade (which were imported from Marseille), stained glass windows, two bell towers containing six bronze bells that still ring to this day, and a peaceful garden setting in the middle of downtown Ho Chi Minh City District 1.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Central Post Office, 125 Hai Ba Trung, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 70000 Vietnam

The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh is a beautifully preserved remnant of French colonial times and perhaps the grandest post office in all of Southeast Asia. Located next door to Notre Dame Cathedral, the two cultural sites can be visited together and offers visitors a chance to imagine life in Vietnam during the times of the Indochinese Empire. The building was designed by Alfred Foulhoux and features arched windows and wooden shutters, just as it would have in its heyday in the late 19th Century.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: The Independence Palace, 106 Nguyen Du District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 700000 Vietnam

Independence Palace was the base of Vietnamese General Ngo Dinh Diem until his death in 1963. It made its name in global history in 1975. A tank belonging to the North Vietnamese Army crashed through its main gate, ending the Vietnam War. Today, it's a must-visit for tourists in Ho Chi Minh City. The palace is like a time capsule frozen in 1975. You can see two of the original tanks used in the capture of the palace parked in the grounds. Independence Palace was the home and workplace of the French Governor of Cochin-China. It has lush gardens, secret rooms, antique furniture, and a command bunker. It's still in use to host important occasions in Ho Chi Minh, including APEC summits.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: War Remnants Museum, 28 Vo Van Tan Ward 6, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City 700000 Vietnam

The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City first opened to the public in 1975. Once known as the ‘Museum of American War Crimes’, it's a shocking reminder of the long and brutal Vietnam War. Graphic photographs and American military equipment are on display. There's a helicopter with rocket launchers, a tank, a fighter plane, a single-seater attack aircraft. You can also see a conventional bomb that weighs at 6,800kg. American troops had used these weapons against the Vietnamese between 1945 and 1975.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: People's Committee Building, 86 Le Thanh Ton Street, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 70000 Vietnam

The People’s Committee Building Saigon in central Ho Chi Minh City features well-preserved French colonial architecture in a spacious garden landscape. Originally constructed as a hotel in 1898 by French architect Gardes, it now serves as a city hall and one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. Occupying the end of Nguyen Hue walking promenade, it has three buildings with embossed statues of animals and people, intricate bas-reliefs on the walls, as well as a statue of Ho Chi Minh in front of the main building. The best time to visit is in the evening, as these features are beautifully illuminated with LED lights.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Saigon Opera House (Ho Chi Minh Municipal Theater), 07 Lam Son Square Street District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 700000 Vietnam

The Saigon Opera House in Ho Chi Minh is an elegant colonial building at the intersection of Le Loi and Dong Khoi Street in District 1, very close to the famous Notre Dame Cathedral and the classic Central Post Office. The restored three-storey 800-seat Opera House was built in 1897 and is used for staging not only opera but also a wide range of performing arts including ballet, musical concerts, Vietnamese traditional dance and plays. Performances are advertised around the building and information can be found in the state-operated tourist information centre close by.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Chinatown (Cho Lon) - District 5, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City’s Cholon is Vietnam’s largest Chinatown with roots dating back to 1778; it’s also a place of great historical and cultural importance. Chinese minorities hid here from the Tay Son and subsequently had to rebuild the area twice following attack with as many as 70% estimated to have died trying to escape on boats. Those who survived settled and began selling a variety of Chinese products. During the Vietnam War Cholon was a thriving black market for US soldiers trading in American Army issue supplies. The area today is a popular site for those on the tourist trail and also attracts many Taiwanese and Chinese visitors. Cholon is an interesting place to see classical Chinese architecture reminiscent of years gone by with plenty of Chinese restaurants. The Binh Tay market at the centre is busy, crowded and messy with small aisles selling all manner of goods. This market sometimes disappoints tourists when compared to other markets in Ho Chi Minh as the products are not that varied, but the main draw to Cholon is not to shop but to enjoy the authentic Chinese atmosphere that has existed here for hundreds of years. It’s a wonderful place to experience at night.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Ba Thien Hau Temple, 710 Nguyen Trai Cho Lon, District 5, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

Ba Thien Hau Temple in Saigon is a Buddhist temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess, Mazu. It’s believed that she protects and rescues ships and people on the sea by flying around on a mat or cloud. Mazuism is connected with traditions and beliefs from both Taoism and Buddhism. Mazuism is therefore an incorporation of different aspects and traditions which have merged to form a new belief. You will find this temple in ‘Cholon’ (Chinatown) in District 5, which is roughly a twenty minute drive from the city centre.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Ben Thanh Market, Le Loi, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 700000 Vietnam

Ben Thanh Market in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1 is a great place to buy local handicrafts, branded goods, Vietnamese art and other souvenirs. Here, you’ll find eating stalls inside the market where you can get a taste of hawker-style Vietnamese cuisine or simply cool off with a cold drink when the bargaining becomes too much. The market is big, difficult to navigate at times and certainly best avoided during the hottest part of the day but all the same its well worth a look. When night falls, restaurants around the perimeter of the market open their doors creating a vibrant street side scene filling the air with the scents of wok-fried noodles, barbecued fish and meats. One of Saigon’s oldest landmarks, Ben Thanh offers a great atmosphere that is absolutely authentically Vietnamese.

Duration: 30 minutes

Excellent tour. So good to be able to take things at our own pace and not be rushed. Tour guide, Mr Tan, AKA Andy, was very helpful, especially in the market when we were trying to buy some fabric, and was good fun. Took us for a delicious lunch. Highly recommend.

An excellent experience. Our guide, Tan, was friendly and very knowledgeable. He also had a driver for the car and that made for a good experience since Tan was free to talk and show us photos and maps. He had an itinerary but was free to let us do what we wanted to do with no time restrictions. Made it back to our ship with plenty of time to spare. After we got back from our trip Tan even sent us a music video with all the pictures he took of the two of us.

This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Met was just brilliant, friendly and informative. We had excellent communication before the tour, which I unfortunately did not pick up as the internet on the ship was terrible. However, after reading reviews on this site I did know to meet outside the port gates. I was worried before hand about the timings as Ho Chi Minh City is a large distance from the port. I did not need to be concerned as Met made sure we were back in plenty of time. This was made clear before we even set off!. I would thoroughly recommend this tour for price, comfort. information and most of all enjoyment. Thank you Met.

We had an excellent guide by the name of Andy who was local to the city and knew a lot about the area as well as having a great sense of humour and good English. We also had a separate driver was very good and had a very comfortable air conditioned car.
Andy took us to all the sites that were on the itinerary as well as ones that we asked for such as the Hard Rock Cafe and we cannot praise him more as an excellent guide who kept to the time and itinerary (even if we took longer at some than others!).
If you do this trip then do ask for Andy as he will ensure that you get your money’s worth and have an enjoyable time - highly recommended.

Our city tour with Met from Maximus Tours was perfect. She met our party of 8 at the port in a cool and spacious van. Met was very knowledgeable about all of the important sights to see in Ho Chi Minh City. We had a delicious lunch at a small Vietnamese restaurant that was wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Met!

A great day out with our friendly guide Sarah, who took us, not only to the must do sites of the Post office, Obama Pagoda, opera house etc, but also to floor 52 cafe of the Britesco building for the price of a great deal Vietnamese iced coffee and to underground tunnels in a 1950s coffee shop in the centre of Siagon. A lovely air conditioned Toyota with free WiFi picked us up on time from the port of Phu My and negotiated the traffic and ningha motorcyclist. We really, really enjoyed our short time in Ho Chi Minh city. Lunch was with the locals and very tasty. Thank you Sarah.

We were delighted with our day in Ho Chi Minh City with tour guide Met. She was a helpful, charming wealth of information delivered in remarkable English. She was personable, professional and knowledgable--everything you could want in a guide. The tour operator reached out to confirm arrangements with us by email the day before. Pickup outside the port was easy and on time. Lunch was great. The sites were powerful. One war veteran in our group found the museum's retelling of events to be difficult, but Met managed to perfectly straddle competing versions of history with stories of her lived experience. It was an introduction to the modern Vietnam to a group of active seniors who needed to update our perceptions of the country that were formed 50 years ago. We also happened to see Saigon decked out in its finest for the lunar new year of the rat.

My wife and I were a bit nervous when booking this tour as there was no way we wanted to get back to the port late and end up being stranded in Vietnam - but right from the start our guide, Mr Tan (Andy), and our driver, Mr Three, gave us total confidence that all would be fine. Andy, whose English is excellent, was very knowledgeable and worked so hard to give us information and answer our questions. The journey to/ from the port is quite long (about 1.5/ 2 hours), so we only had about 4 hours in the city - but despite heavy traffic throughout the day, we managed to do and see so much - including the Post Office, Notre Dame, the War Remnants Museum, the Lacquer Workshop and the outside of the Palace, as well as having a nice lunch. Would not hesitate to recommend this tour - such good value for money.

We arrived with our cruise ship at “Puh May” cruise port. Our travel guide Jayden was awaiting us together with a driver and his very comfortable, luxury SUV. We have been welcomed very warmly, and friendly, and Jayden provided us water while we began our journey to Ho-Chi-Minh.

The trip took around 1:30-2:00 hours and Jayden used the time to explain many things about Vietnam for us. He showed us pictures and gave us details of the culture, history, political background, and people of Vietnam.

During our visit, he agreed with us about what we are going to see and what our interests are. Jayden was able to adjust to our requirements. We have seen all that we would have liked to see, the highlights of Saigon, but also adding some of our wishes like shopping, market, etc. He managed to stay in time and controlled the entire day precisely. Time management is essential when you are on a cruise ship, but we didn’t have to worry at any time.

Jayden also organized for us a fantastic Vietnamese lunch. He listened carefully to what we would like to taste and provided us an excellent lunch experience.

Jayden is very aware of what tourists would like to see. He is knowledgeable and extremely well outspoken. His English is excellent and he is also fun and enjoyable. We highly recommend a tour with him. May he have a blessed future on all his journeys!
