Private Guides in Ho Chi Minh City

You are visiting a new city and all the streets seem unfamiliar yet exciting, but you have no clue where to start exploring. Often, you find yourself ending up in one of those already crowded touristic places, while missing out on a whole lot of fun that is going on a few streets down the block. Recognizable? Touristic places like to sell the idea of being authentic, but mostly, they are all providing you with the same experience. On your journey abroad, the real magic happens when you step out of the touristic comfort zone, and start thinking like a local. Ever wondered where the locals live, eat or do their shopping? Withlocals gives you the opportunity to explore Ho Chi Minh City under the guidance of a local.

Bike Like a Local Private Tour

Stephanie provided an incredible tour of Amsterdam by bicycle. She was very funny, entertaining and knowledgeable. Also, we really appreciated how patient she was with my youngest daughter, who is not the most comfortable bike rider. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to try out cycling in the bike capital of the world.

Yehliu Geopark & Small Town Escape Day Tour

Stephen was a terrific host to my group of 4, which included my parents, husband and myself. Naturally, we are all different ages, but there was something for everyone in Stephen's tour. The Geopark tour would not have been the same without Stephen, who used to work as a guide for the park. His experience and knowledge certainly showed as walked us through the park -- we felt like VIPs because the park employees all know and recognize Stephen. The very best part of the tour was hiking thru an "uncharted" part of the park where absolutely no tourists are found. You feel like you are on another world -- absolutely breathtaking -- and something that we would not have been able to do without Stephen. Finally, Stephen took us to a DELICIOUS restaurant whose food I still day dream about until this day... all fresh locally caught seafood whose taste cannot be beat. Thank you Stephen for making our experience unforgettable!
