About the tour

Join Spring and Hieu as they take you through the unknown treasures of Saigon. In this tour, they will share with you everything they know about Vietnam's history & culture (Under your Google and Youtube Search radar) by visiting: • A Communist apartment complex. • A vibrant local market with products you have never seen before. • The second oldest cafe in Saigon. Spring and Hieu are pretty fun to hang out with and can make you laugh and relax a little. They love their job and can do it for 60 years so when you come to Saigon, you can catch up with them and have a nice cafe together :) You will love Saigon even more after this trip, add color to your postcard collection and learn about the Vietnamese way of life! ✏ Please keep in mind that the Local Market presents some very unusual animal and seafood products (NOT VEGAN-friendly at all ^^) ✏ Be bold and ask the couple every question that pops up in your mind!! Spring and Hieu want to make this tour as interactive as possible so answering your question creates joy in their hearts. ✏ Stay open-minded. Just a little bit is good ♥

Meet your local guide

Hieu & Spring

Spring and Hiếu (pronounced almost like Hugh) are a couple who have been guiding tours for more than 5 years in Vietnam. This live streaming tour is a condensed version of Vietnam's untold history and culture from their Vietnamese perspective and is based on their experiences face to face with more than 3000 guests over the past 5 years. History made them realize how grateful they are to have a better life than their people did. They have it 1000 times easier than their older folks did. For them, Vietnamese people were the strongest, smartest and most courageous people back then. Book their virtual trip and you just might feel the same. They are always finding new ways to do it better than last time. Spring and Hieu are here to give you value and maybe make you decompress a little. When not guiding guests, Spring loves lifting weights, listening to K-pop and watching Korean dramas. Hieu loves doing yoga taught by his teacher Sadhguru and reading different kinds of stuff.

Hieu & Spring has been guiding since Jul 2015

It was a fascinating insight into local Vietnamese life. Hieu & Spring were very enthusiastic & loved showing their country to us. They had a few technical issues right at the end which wasn’t their fault but they managed to overcome them. Looking forward to seeing more of Vietnam in the future.
