It was really nice! :) For a small amount of money we sat on a small boat in a small group, very comfortably furnished, with drinks and snacks on board (which you could buy for a small amount of money). I thought it was really worth it. Our guide Steve / aka Quang spoke great English, was full of good vibes, took photos of us, answered questions and showed us a little bit about the sights. I thought the balance was great - we got IBFOS, but we could also just enjoy the moment. It was very relaxing and nice to escape the madness of everyday life for a bit and see the city from a different perspective. We took the 6am trip into the sunset, it was a dream.

I was impressed with Saigon Sky. From the entrance to the observation level was very professional and effective. The Saigon Sky has breathtaking views. I also loved the exhibits and the gift shop. I felt very comfortable sitting I'm Saigon Sky. The air quality was. very comfortable.

Although living many years in Ho Chi Minh City, this was the first time I could enjoy very moment on the bus go through my loving City. Specially on hot season, very clean and fresh Bus.
