The Only Authentic Cu Chi Tunnels Tour With a Local

Spending the day with Vi visiting the tunnels was a real pleasure. This intelligent and entertaining young woman was great company, highly informative and speaks excellent English. It was a privilege to get an understanding of this important aspect of Vietnam history through Vi. A great experience.

Best of Ho Chi Minh City Private Tour

Wow! What a weekend!
We had only 48 hours in HCMC. Were a party of 7, including 3 little kids (7, 5 and 3 years old) and had a 60th birthday to celebrate... So we started with a city tour with Jecky.

Of course before we could start, kids were hungry, so Jecky brought us to a restaurant nearby the meeting point and was helping us patiently to feed the monsters. After that we went through the major sights, exactly as we planned to. Jecky was showing us around and kept the kids engaged. We were then parting at the Notre Dame Cathedral and Jecky continued the walk with my parents to the market which they enjoyed very much.

I had via Whatsapp and calls arranged with Jecky a birthday tour the next day. Jecky was not only a great source of recommendations and went beyond everything to get a couple of nice additional things together (birthday cake, personalized video!!!!, floating candles etc). It was such a great surprise for the birthday and we all enjoyed the trip so much.

Jecky would be our first go-to point if we go back to HCMC and we are looking forward exploring the other sights.

The Only Authentic Cu Chi Tunnels Tour With a Local

We went to the Cu Chi tunnels with Vi. It was really a plus to do this with a private guide. Vi knows a lot of the history and also gave good tips for the following evening and day in Saigon.
