Tours to Ho Chi Minh city from port Phu My in Vietnam - stay away!
If you thought that the best tours to Saigon, Ho Chi Minh city, were the best tours from Port Phu My in Vietnam, then you need to reconsider and do more homework.
I am stunned that the ships docking at Port Phu My are STILL offering tours and shore excursions to Ho Chi Minh City. For the last four years the centre of the city has slowly been torn apart to make way for the supposed subway system (the Metro). Roads have been blocked. Footpaths blocked and divierted (or not), major landmarks removed. Visitors to Ho Chi Minh across this time have had to tolerate construction noise, dust, and ugly barriers.
TripAdvisor reviews of shore excursions to Saigon are crammed with negative feedback and still the ships offer bad tour options. Four years and still they are happy to supply overpriced shore excursions to a construction site. Shameful!
Ho Chi Minh city has always been known as a busy, active city, that is probably part of its appeal, but these days that is not what tourists are seeing when they visit Saigon. If you are a passenger about to dock in Phu My you might need to rethink your plans (unless you like construction sites). Don't believe me though - ask Google for updates on this long drawn out issue.
