Get Your Private Guide in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh)

Have you ever thought about getting a private guide on any of your travels? Check out our list of why you should and where you can get your private guide in Saigon.

Why You Should Get a Private Guide in Saigon

If you are traveling to Saigon, thinking you would prefer a local friend to show you around the city to a packaged tour where you have to share your tour guide and schedule with others but don’t have such friends? You should consider getting yourself a private guide in Saigon to enjoy to the fullest of this trip.

Personal experience

The tour starts the moment you are picked up and ends when you are dropped off, there is no wasted time waiting for other people. It will be just you and your private guide in Saigon throughout the whole journey, with no other stranger guests coming along. You can suggest a list of where you want to visit and do not want to visit as well, customizing the itinerary the way you would enjoy it.

Local insights

When going with a private guide in Saigon, you will learn many things about the place you visit. Not only through the stories they share but also by watching how they communicate with you, interacting with other locals, you can get an idea about the local culture and daily life.

Your private guide in Saigon, as a local, will know where to look for unique and exciting destinations that suit your preference. The knowledge and expertise of the tour guide will help you have a deeper understanding, making your visits to places much more interesting and worthwhile than just sightseeing and taking pictures.

Professional services

A private guide can provide you with the kind of knowledge that you wouldn’t get otherwise because there are many pieces of history, backgrounds of a person, and cultural aspects connecting with the attractions in Saigon that can spark your interest, but a normal local would probably take these pieces of information for granted. You can also ask your private guide in Saigon any questions pop up along the way.

Not just what you see but the experience you have with your guide also matters. You should expect the best service where your needs, as well as interests and conditions (like diets, allergies, etc.), can be accommodated. Just make sure you tell them well in advance.

Flexible itinerary

When going on a private tour, you can manage your schedule like how you would do a tour by yourself instead of a fixed itinerary and having to consent with other guests before making changes. You can easily make small changes during the trip, extending or shortening your visits to enjoy everything at your own pace.

Peace of mind

One of the most important but tedious parts of planning a trip is researching, browsing places to go, how to get there, what to know about the places, and renting vehicles. It may even discourage you from going, especially when you don’t have much time for your business travel or want to kill time in a short stopover in the city. If you can get a private guide in Saigon, they will solve this problem, taking care of all these time-consuming tasks for you and making the best itinerary that suits your schedule.

More than that, the private guide will also be an interpreter, which allows you to understand what happens around you better when talking to other locals like vendors or waiters and waitresses. Plus, when you go with a local, it is less likely that you will be robbed or scammed, but you should still be careful and take precautions.

A motorbike tour with a private guide in Saigon

And last but not least, to get adventurous in Saigon and try a motorcycle ride in this city, the private guide will be your optimal choice. Why? Because the guide knows the streets and the map of the city. Another reason is safety; driving a motorcycle in Vietnam can be difficult with all the motorbike madness. Besides, as there is still a gray area of whether tourists can drive in Vietnam, it is better to let the driving in the local guide’s hands.

Where to Get your Private Guide in Saigon

Ask a friend. Finding a friend who had experienced the service and asking for their advice would be the best option.

Look up on the Internet. But if you can’t find such friends, the internet can provide you with plenty of information about the private guide in Saigon. A bunch of information may bombard you, but it is still a good resource. Just pick what you find interesting and read the reviews.

Ask your hotel staffs. One of the quickest ways is to ask the hotel staff; they will know and can direct you to a private guide in no time. You should consider this when you don’t have time to browse through the web.
