Ho Chi Minh City Free Walking Tours

Saigon Activities

Free walking tours in Ho Chi Minh City are great for getting to know the history of the city and some of its most popular landmarks through the eyes of a local. A quick search online will lead you to several non-profits or universities organising free walking tours to help local youths improve their English and hospitality skills. Most tours are held in the morning, from 08:00 until 12:00, stopping at popular hotspots within the city centre.

Ideal for when you’re travelling on a tight budget but still wants to enjoy some sightseeing during our holiday, there’s no hidden charges but you’re more than welcome to tip your guide for their time (though most will even decline your offer). However, you are required to pay for admission fees when entering certain attractions, such as Reunification Palace (VND 30,000) and War Remnants Museum (VND 15, 000). Free Walking Tours in Saigon can also arrange for tours in the afternoon, but we highly advise against it as you’ll be walking under the scorching sun for about four hours. It’s also a good idea to wear sunscreen and a hat in the morning (and throughout the day), as well as some cash to pay the entrance fees for selected tourist spots.
