Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local


Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures will not only take you amongst the sights, sounds and smells of Ho Chi Minh City, but will also show you the daily life of the nearby Mekong delta areas on uniquely designed Ho Chi Minh City tours.

 


Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam with a population of about eight million people. The hustle and bustle of people rushing about their daily business gives the city a vital and dynamic atmosphere. Ho Chi Minh City is characterised by a vast variety of sights and sounds, from ancient pagodas, mosques and cathedrals to the former Presidential Palace and the War Museum, and from historical Dong Khoi Street (the Rue Catinat from Graham Greene's novel 'The Quiet American') to the busy markets of Ben Thanh and Cholon (Chinatown).

Most of the city life takes place on the streets which are lined with shops, stalls, and vendors, their wares spread out on the footpath, selling everything from soup to sophisticated electronics! French influence is evident in the excellent baguettes and coffee.

Taking one of our Ho Chi Minh tours shows you a different side to the city than what you'll find on most package tours. Discover the real Ho Chi Minh with Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures.

Temple and Tunnel tour Temples & Tunnels
from 4 reviews
From USD 69.00

One of the best things about travel is seeing how different things are out of your own backyard. On this Ho Chi Minh City tour you'll see just that as you encounter a faith that combines Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. You'll also see the Cu Chi tunnel system - a masterclass on guerilla warfare tactics. Got either of these at home? Thought not.

Fresh spring rolls & Salad Saigon Street Food by Night
from 1 review
From USD 32.00

Saigon. A true culinary master. Legend, in fact. Get right down to the soul of this beast of a food city and spend three hours eating like a local. It may seem like non-stop culinary decadence because that’s just what it is. And you’re gonna love it.

The tour was wonderful. I was looking for a way to explore the city with my family who was visiting from the USA and it was one of the highlights of their trip to HCMC! Ms. Linda took such great care of them, we felt like she was a part of our family by the end of the tour. Thank you, Urban Adventures!

Really enjoyed the day tour even if the time on the bus was quite long it was comfortable mini bus and enjoyed taking in the views on the journey. Quenie - our guide for the day was excellent, spoke good English and kept us well informed during the tour. We loved the canoe boat ride along the narrow canals.

Our tour guide Than was very friendly and knowledgeable . My husband enjoyed the experience of being able to fire an AK-47. I did feel as though we were rushed through the whole experience. We were the only people on this tour, perhaps if we had other people with us things may have progressed at a slower pace.
