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.

The headphone jacks should be serviced regularly. Unfortunately, some stations do not work. For some, the country flag does not match the language.

The tour with the open bus through Ho Chi Minh is worthwhile. Both during the day and in the evening.

Well organized and informative. Plenty of room on the bus. Covered a good area

Was a good tour. Not too long and easy to get on and off.
