Hidden Saigon takes you down hidden alleyways where time seems to stand still and into the buildings so full of character you wish walls could actually talk. Delve deeper into the everyday life of the Saigonese people. Hear their personal stories surrounded by family heirlooms.
Queue with them for a morning snack of sticky chicken rice wrapped in banana leaf. Watch them go about their day as you step behind the scenes to meet those living, working and creating in modern Saigon.

From the booking process to transportation the tour was very well organised and went off without a hitch. Learning Linh's family history and flipping through her photo album allowed us to have a better understanding of her personal journey and her deep connection to Saigon.
The choice of hosts/culture-makers was excellent: warm, genuine, welcoming and happy to answer every question. Nothing seemed rushed.
Food was definitely one of the highlights of the tour with both breakfast and lunch provided as well as many delicious snacks along the way.
There were serendipitous moments too, like buying a raffle ticket on a whim from a friendly seller in China Town and winning a bag of sugar.
