Cruised on Marella Discovery. Picked up just outside port, Mr Lee, our guide was very welcoming and informative. Beautiful, clean minibus, 4 of us in party. Driver, sorry can’t remember his name, very pleasant and drove well, even in central Saigon.........
Water provided, tour tailored to our needs, wonderful meal included. Mr Lee bought some fruits at local market for us to try after our meal
Fantastic day, would recommend these to anyone........even given a present sent from Mr Lees wife at end of tour

We are a group of 7 which did a day tour of Saigon with Lee Minh - a very satisfied group with Lee for his professionalism, knowledge of the country's history, local life and culture. He has a great sense of humor and a passion for his country that kept us interested in learning about Vietnam throughout the tour. We appreciate his good command of English for a non-native English speaker. He was very attentive to our needs (we are in our late 60's and 70's) and kept the pace of the tour mindful of the limited mobility of some in our group. Lee’s flexibility, thoughtfulness, consideration and high touristic fervor has made our short stay in Saigon truly memorable.
