    Very good tour guide. Her English was great! The tunnels were great to visit. After we thought we would have more time in Ho Chi Minh city but we stopped at a local art fair. Were given a tour and felt a lot of pressure to buy things. It was nice but with that stop and longer lunch we didn’t have any time in Ho Chi Minh. Basically a drive buy with a fast trip through the market. Glad we did it but wish the write up was more accurate on what to expect.
