Curse the country where he was born, works and lives. How bad it can be ?
Sky is super lovely and friendly and gave a wonderful insight to Ho Chi Minh city! I would definitely recommend :))
We really enjoyed sky's walking tour, he had the perfect balance of enthusiasm and energy. We were a family of four and thought the walking tour would be an ideal way to get to know How Chi Minh city, it was. It can be a long morning as you see so many sites so wear some comfortable shoes, we saw the main sites and Sky was knowledgeable about the city. I'm glad we decided to do this tour rather than one arranged through one of the bigger travel agencies as we felt we were getting a real taste of the place, highly recommended.
It was a very interesting tour with a lovely guide, Sky. Visit of 2 different markets and temples. We have tried Vietnamese fruits (dragon fruit, green orange...) and he explains us so many things about Vietnamese culture. It is a tour to make AB-SO-LU-TLY if you want to learn more about this country!
Foodtour: It was amazing! Sky showed us a lot of beautiful places where no tourist ever come. It was our first night in Vietnam. He showed us how nice and beautiful the Vietnamese culture is. City walk: He showed us the beautiful spots in Saigon. He did all the must sees, but he also took us to the local people and bars. It was fantastic. Sky: such an amazing person. He always smiles and he is always there to help you. He does know the background story about the places we visit. The team he had with him was also very nice and friendly. I conclude that it was amazing! I recommend everybody to do it!
Sky is AWESOME! It was just the two of us for the tour and we wanted to see things that were not part of the afternoon tour. Sky was really cool and he made us do the morning itinerary. He was insightful and provided a lot of inputs on each location that we were at. I'd recommend Sky as one of the best people to go on a walking tour with.
Sky is such an awesome tour guide. He was always smiling and got this friendly aura in him. We started right on time, went to the places that are relevant to Ho Chi Minh's daily life, not to the touristy spots. His stories are inspiring. Definitely not a tourist trap! Thank you, Sky! Continue doing what you love and goodluck!
Sky was an excellent tour guide. From start to finish, he was always smiling! He didn't take us to the super touristy places, which I appreciated. He showed us what locals do and where locals go. That was exactly what I was looking for! If you want a boring, uneventful walking tour, contact somebody else. If you want an authentic tour with a local, contact Sky!
I went on the Morning Walking Tour with Sky and loved every minute of it! Right from the get-go, Sky was SUPER personable - conversation flowed smoothly from the moment the tour started, right up until the end. He was happy to answer my millions of questions, giving such insightful and honest answers to each. The passion for his country and culture is obvious, I think, what brings so much value to the tour. I was engaged throughout and felt like I learned a lot about Vietnam and Vietnamese culture that I would've missed out on had it not been for his tour. Sky's tour also didn't have the rigidity of other tours I've been on while travelling through SE Asia. If there was something that caught my eye or that I was particularly interested in, we'd stop and spend some time. It never felt like we were in a rush to get to the "next stop". All in all, it was such an enjoyable morning. I would HIGHLY recommend Sky's tour to any future visitors. Thanks again, Sky!
Spending the afternoon touring Chinatown with Sky was one of the best experiences I had in my time in Ho Chi Minh City. Sky was a vibrant, personable, interesting guide with outstanding English skills. If you're looking for a tour to get to know Vietnamese culture on a personal level without any canned lines or rehearsed tour speeches, this is the tour for you. It's definitely the most authentic tour you'll find in the whole city. On the tour we talked about Vietnamese history and religion and life in Vietnam today along with tours of countless markets, an introduction to a bunch of tropical fruit (with tastings), and a look at some magnificent temples. If you're in the area and want great conversation and a truly authentic experience, a tour with Sky is something you cannot miss.
Such a great tour! Sky deserves a 10 out of 5 if I could give it! Very welcoming, informative and a great way to see the city. Sky has so much knowledge of the city and his personality is so unique. I would definitely take his walking tour again 🙂 thank you so much for a memorable day 🙂
Sky and his team are as energetic as they are knowledgeable, taking their morning walking tour was informative, fun and encouraging, making us feel more connected with the local history, food, coffee, culture and even photography. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to further their knowledge of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh) or anyone who just has some time to kill in the city! Their enthusiasm truly is infectious!!!
Sky is a wonderful human being! He has such a zest for life and projects this onto everyone else. He gets to know everyone personally on the tour which is wonderful and makes you feel very comfortable in an otherwise crazy city! His english is brilliant and will answer any questions you have. His knowledge of the city's history is great and the walking tours are very well thought out. We enjoyied the morning city tour so much that we went back for the evening chinatown one. The city tour takes you to the main spots and gives you a good overview of city during the day - independence palace where you have time to wander round (40,000vnd admission), communist coffee shop (try the coconut coffee!) an art gallery by famous french photographer - there's no pressure to purchase anything and it gives you a lovely overview of vietnam as a whole, and the photos are stunning! You also see the opera house and the walking lane of ho chi mihn amongst other things whilst walking. The chinatown evening tour takes you on a bus, away from the main toursity market to Chinatown markets. You'll go to the cheap narrow markets that sell anything from rice bowls to hats, and then the dry markets to see all the rice, spices and other dried goods. We tried lots of fresh fruits and a delicious noodle dish with spring rolls. You'll then go to see the pagodas of chinatown so make sure you where long trousers for the evening tour. Sky is so passionate about his business and it is clear he is putting his heart and soul into this. He is a young guy with a lot of heart - please support his tours 🙂
If you're looking for a down-to-earth, upbeat & casual tour, this is your tour! Sky took us to some great places and knew interesting info, but what I really enjoyed is Sky's honesty with whatever questions we had. Super energetic & fun tour. Highly recommended! If there's one thing you do in Vietnam, take one of Sky's tours!
Sky was a great tour guide. He showed us many places and gave lots of backstory to each place we visited. He is super enthousastic and funny; things you're looking for in a tour guide. I saw many more things than I would have seen if I walked the streets myself. Addionally, he gives good suggestions for new beverages to try. Both the drinks I had on the tour we're delicious and I wouldn't have known to try them without his suggestion. Keep up the great tours Sky!!
e china town tour was great! Went to spots I wouldn’t have went to. Sky’s English is great, he was able to understand everything I said and I’m from Scotland! Sky has a very good nature and really gets to know everyone on his tour. I’m sad I didn’t get to do his other city tour but maybe next time!!
A friend and I did Ground to Sky's morning walking tour (with Sky and Duy Tan) a couple of weeks ago when we were in Saigon. We got to see the market, lots of cool landmarks and statues, ate delicious local dishes and discovered some cool cafes. We had a great time hanging out with both of them! Their English was excellent and they were entertaining and informative tour guides. We can't recommend this experience enough and have been sending people Sky's way ever since 🙂

Went on both the Chinatown and city tour. Through this tour, I met new friends in the city to explore the city together. Sky is also very friendly in the tour. Would recommend!!
We went on a free walking tour recommended by our hostel and this tour was great! We got to get an insider's look at different places around District 1 and Chinatown, the big local markets, sample the fresh produce, check out local temples, see a side to Ho Chi Minh that's not so touristy. Also, Sky is the man! Great tour guide, very friendly and funny guy. I would recommend this tour to someone that wants to check out the local side of Ho Chi Minh City..
I cannot recommend Sky's tours highly enough. I went on the China Town walking tour and it was the perfect afternoon. Sky's English is perfect and he is so enthusiastic in everything he talks about, I wish I had found about his tours earlier in my trip so I could have gone on more of them. He really was the highlight of my short trip to Vietnam. Thank you Sky!!!
Had a great walking tour to Chinatown! We learned a lot about Vietnamese and Chinese religion and culture, and the tour guide was a blast!
Get in touch with Sky for any tour you like, you will not regret it. We visited the salon China town, Sky showed us places you would never find on your own. He is a pleasant guy to walk around with and speaks perfect English.

I love your service
Sky is a super nice guy. I enjoyed having great conversations with him and listening to his ideas about Vietnam. We climbed to the top of a tall building and got some great views on an abandoned rooftop. You surely will get something different and special when you go around exploring with this dude!
I highly recommend everyone to have sky and his crew show u around! I had a blast food tasting and sight seeing with sky and his crew!
I don't usually post reviews but I feel I need to here. Sky is an amazing tour guide. He speaks perfect English, and you will leave as a friend for sure. He will make sure your Saigon experience is legit and will do anything to help you out. If you want the authentic experience, look no further. I took a chance and it paid off in spades. Don't miss out. I did the rooftop tour and the view was unbeatable.
Had such a nice morning doing the walking tour with sky. Such a happy and exciting guy! He was not only just a tour guide but also a friendly local giving us advice about HCM and telling us his story.�
1. He will fall in love with you if you are a funny and sarcastic korean savage like me(so he did)(bad i am no gay) 2. Supah hyper vietnamese gentleman will lead the way 3. He needs to understand the greatness of british accent but that does not degrade the quality of the tour 4. I am a mean person so was gonna give 3.74 stars but he will bug me if i do so so i am giving 5 5. You are welcome
Came across Sky through a friend who also did the tour and recommend him. Such a groovy guy and will show you some of the coolest places to see and eat at in Ho Chi Minh City. Great way to fill in the day and have some fun!
Thank you very much for the tour today Sky. It was a really nice experience and I really can recommend it. It was the best way to visit Ho Chi Minh City.

Lucky to have met this guy on the bus.Great guy great time. Like seriously!
i luckily met a tour guide of the Ground To Sky Tours, heard about stories, passions of opening a startup travel company. thank you for your stories and experience. So sad that i could not find your facebook.
Awesome experience with Ground to Sky Tours! Got to taste the best local food and ride on motorbike !! Sky has been extremely welcoming and nice ! This is the place to book your trip in Vietnam !!
Ground to Sky Tours was one of the best parts of my Vietnam. Sky and his team showed me and my friends great food, social spots, scenery, and are also super knowledgeable about Vietnamese History and Culture!
Thank you Sky for the day! You was the perfect guide for visiting Ho Chi Minh City. You’re friendly and nice � I recommend you for all the travellers who wants to see the good places here � Thanks Bro ! �
Après-midi parfaite en compagnie de Sky qui a pris de son temps pour nous faire découvrir les merveilles de son pays ! Merci Sky !
Highly recommend the mountain trekking tour. It was one of hell of an adventure that took true physical and mental strength. The reward was worth it, from the breathtaking views, delicious camp food and overall experience of camping on top of the mountain. The tour guides were fun, and hilarious providing great company with the adventure. I definitely recommend this to anyone that craves a real adventure on their journey to Vietnam.
It's true, the night started as a simple food tour, but Sky is such a kind and interesting person that I would rather call it an unexpected night out with a friend. We tried different foods from different districts in the city, all the while discussing our interests and knowledge about Vietnam. I warmly recommend it, especially for the guide!
Sky was a great tour guide.. it was one of my best experience in Vietnam.. He took me around on his bike,, he showed the area where I would never go on regular tour.. I have highly recommend to go on his tour if you would enjoy real Vietnam life..

I had an unforgettable experience with Sky and his team trekking and camping on Chua Chan mountain in Dong Nai province. He made sure to motivate our group to make it to the top of the mountain. Not only was his team well prepared for the night with all of the camping gear, tasty food and drinks; but they were also equipped with great conversation and laughs, a local experience and amazing photography skills. A special thank you to Quang for being so lovely and funny. I would definitely book another tour with them the next time I am in the city.
Awesome tour, Great to experience Saigon from the perspective of the locals.I had an amazing time! 🙂 Sky was a great guide and i reccomend to ask for him for the same experience!! , thanks guys <3
Highly recommend, if you want to dive into Saigon's food and sights as a true local. Sky team is amazingly fun and caring about creating the best experience for you, top service. Keep on going, guys!
Thank you so much Sky and team for the most amazing food tour around Saigon. So loved your enthusiasm and love for everything you showed us on our tour. It was so interesting to hear about the local food customs while we were enjoying the many tastes of Vietnam. We will be back and do it all again. Have heard about your treks outside the city and we will be definitely booking that next time. Can't wait to do it all again. 6 stars
