Ho Chi Minh city is one of the largest cities in Vietnam and it’s the economic engine room. Still affectionately known as Saigon. Though it has an entrepreneurial spirit that hums day and night, Saigonese is so chill and happy in such a  metropolitan city. The answers will surprise you after the tour.

Saigon stirs up the morning with different kinds of activities in the most vivid way. Positive energy becomes a great source of a high-effective day. When you are in Saigon, do as Saigonese do. The Good morning Saigon walking tour will engage you in the most typical but essential morning routine of local life.

4 hours


Small group/ Private (Minimum group size is 2 people and the maximum is 8 people)


Opera House


7:00 AM-11:00 AM



7:00 AM The tour guide will pick you up at the Saigon Opera House. Then you will stroll down Dong Khoi, the fancy and luxurious street as it was since the French colonial times. We will pass by the city hall and Nguyen Hue walking street to see the city’s pride.

Our first stop is one of the oldest Pho restaurants in town where the original taste of Pho remains unchanged for over 70 years. After filling our stomach with hot delicious Pho, we are ready to visit the Ton That Dam market, the market for the upper class, the few downtown markets that sell everything for the local essential needs.

Then we discover the old and charming apartment and stop for a morning drink- Coffee. It is a must-drink for Saigonese in the morning. Sip coffee and talk about life and watch traffic going around is what we do to get ready for a day.

After that, we will head to the Quang Trieu Assembly Hall to learn about Chinese history as well as the spiritual life of Chinese- Vietnamese in Saigon.

11:00 PM The walk will end with lunch at the local restaurant. There is nothing better than delicious local food to get the introduction of Vietnamese cuisine. 

We will drop you off at your hotel after the tour.

How far is the whole trip?

Walking distance is approximately 5 km. You will be walking mostly on streets and alleys with flat terrain and regular uneven steps so it might be not suitable for minors (less than 6) or travelers that need an accessible facility. We will make a few stops during the trip to try some local foods, take photos and interact with locals.

Children under 7?

Our tour is designed for adults and children from 7 as it involves intensive walking on streets, which is not suitable for children under 7. The regular uneven terrain along the tour means that it is also not suitable for stroller or baby carrier as well.

Can you cater to my food allergies/ restrictions?

Since we are provided prior notice, we can adapt the dishes on the tour to fit your food restriction which should not be a problem. So, we can cater to vegetarians OR vegan travellers. Please inform your local guide about any food allergies you might have.

What happens if it rains before/ during the tour?

During the rainy season, heavy and short downpours usually occur in mid-afternoon or evening. Rain showers usually are very short-lived and haven't affected our tours very much in the past few years. So, if the rain is light, we will provide you a poncho to continue the tour :). In case, the bad weather occurs near our scheduled departure, we have the authority to cancel our tours to guarantee the safety of tourists. Here is our cancellation policy:

If the cancellation is informed before you leave for the tour, (you have not used any service yet) and we cannot find another date you wish to go on a 100% refund. If the cancellation is informed during the trip (you have already used some services). The fee of these services will be charged and we will refund the remaining amount. In case you want to cancel the tour in the last minutes due to unpleasant weather BUT our tour still goes out with other clients, here is our cancellation policy:

  • 30% cancellation fee for any cancellation made less than 24 hours prior to the tour date since we have to book many services in advance.
  • Otherwise, there is a 5% transaction fee for bookings that are canceled 24 hours prior to the departure in order to cover for transaction processing costs.

In case unfavorable weather conditions happen during the tour which leads to cancellation for safety reasons: If the tour has lasted 2 hours or more: you can opt to join the tour again on the next available date, or refund of 25%. If the tour has lasted less than 2 hours: you can opt to join the tour again on the next available date, or refund of 50%.

What should I wear and bring on the tour?

Since the weather in Saigon is usually hot and the tour requires a lot of walks, you should wear comfortable clothes and shoes that suitable for walking. For safety reasons, valuables should not be brought on tour. During the rainy season, a poncho will be provided in case of rain but it is advisable that you should wear waterproof clothes and shoes.

Saigon for a day in a half. Our 2 days with San and Innoviet were amazing. He and his driver navigated us around the busy city of Saigon for a half day tour then the next day through the tunnels. San is very professional and he catered to our needs. I highly recommend Innoviet Tours and if you are lucky enough to get San! Willis OBrien, Richmond, Virginia USA

Fabulous - well thought out and executed tours We pre-booked 3 tours with Innoviet prior to arriving (Hidden alleys, Cu Chi tunnels & 1 day Mekong Delta) as we wanted to maximise the few days we were located in Ho Chi Minh, but see some more authentic Vietnam and not follow the tourist traps. We had to pay 100% before arriving which made us slightly nervous but we really shouldn’t have been. All 3 tours were exactly as described .. well thought out and away from the tourist areas. All 3 guides were very informative and delightful. Groups were small with 5 of us (we were a family of 4) being the maximum on our tours. We thoroughly enjoyed every tour and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Innoviet or their tours ... excellent.
