    I had a wonderful time with Joy. Her local knowledge is amazing and she is very personable. She made my trip fun and shared information only a local would know. Her love for culture, history and food is AMAZING!

    Superb tour to Chinatown and a variety of heritage sights. Really interesting insights into the history and varied cultures we encountered. Relaxed pace but no dawdling and wrap up at a coffee haunt that was way off the beaten track. How on earth did I get persuaded to sing whilst she played the piano ? Remember the Wichita Lineman, Joy ! and thanks for the tip about Josh Turner.

    Amazing insightful private tour by an amazing enthusiastic and delightful host in Joy. I'm still buzzing with all the historical, spiritual and educational information imparted by Joy, all shared in an intelligent and impartial manner, yet feeling like old mates after about 5 minutes. Cannot recommend highly enough, Thank you Joy, and thank you WithLocsls for providing this great way to discover Saigon!

    Meeting Joy and our guided tour with her around parts of Saigon that we would never have seen was the high;ight of our time in Saigon. We went on a local bus to Chinatown and learned so much about the local people, their way of life and so much more. It really helped us to understand the city so much more and Joy was super fun to spend time with.

    So very enthusiastic - and perhaps a little mad - that's what you need for an entertaining and filling day. Add very good English and you have a winning combination. Started at the coffee shop and then hit the markets and pagodas of Chinatown. Throughout Thien gave an insightful and personal account of the area. Great fun. Thanks Thien

    Guide Joy was full of interesting knowledge and we saw areas of Ho Chi Minh we wouldn’t normally venture too. A brilliant 4hours wandering the streets. The highlight had to be China Town then coffee in a hidden cafe

    I had a brilliant time with Joy. She showed me so many places and was very knowledgeable about her city. I felt she went above and beyond to give me a really enjoyable authentic experience. It was a wonderful introduction to Saigon, lovely to meet you Joy, thankyou!

    This really was a hidden treasures tour - my mum & I seemed to be the only westerners around! Lam was a great guide, taking time to explain the way of life in the markets and religious sites we visited, plus Vietnamese history/life in general, and to answer our questions. Ending the tour in a unique little coffee shop was a fun way to wrap up a great morning! (Mid-30s & mid-sixties daughter & mother travelling together)
