Private tour guides for cruise ships visiting Vietnam

Jump to last reply

Dear Fodorites, I am stumped!
So looking to your wonderful advice once again on the land portion of our March, 2011 cruise.
In the past we have found having our own guide/driver allows us to see more and learn about local history at our own pace, we love the easier access to historical sites as well.
(We will skip the tunnels in Saigon!). We are foodies, love antiquities and cultural events. Of course we cant wait to meet the charming people who we hear are in abundance in Vietnam.

Can anyone assist with recommendations in the following cities:

1. We are docked in Saigon for two days.
(We were thinking taking the Saigon River Express to the Mekong Delta one day. Is that a good trip? Sounds better than sitting in a car for a couple of hours. Can we do that from a cruise ship?)
2. Then, half Day in Nha Trang
3. A day in Chan May (Hue/Danang)
Can't make up our minds which place to visit in one day. Can we visit both?
4. Then a day in Haiphong where we would like to visit Hanoi and its fabulous sites.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thank you in advance for your experience and wisdom!
