Just spent the last two days using the services of Jason Superstar. We booked him based on the great reviews here on TA. I did the same thing in Thailand last year so I wanted a personal guide again.
The first day with Jason we went to the Mekong Delta. Jason is very flexible with how long you have and what you want to see. Obviously its great to take his advice as he knows the area and history very well.
Everything was planned out perfectly. He had organised boats for us, showed us around local markets and parts of towns that you would never see if you were to go in a large tour group.
He organised a great lunch with a local family which was great. The family were very friendly and we had a beautiful lunch and grest interaction with the family. An excellent experience.
Travel was by a new comfortable car and you could just sit back and relax and take in the scenery on the way and back.
The second day Jason took us to the Cu Chi tunnels. I know you could get on a bus tour to do the same but going early in a private car is the best way as well as a good history lesson and the ability to have someone who can answer your questions.
Jason got us there before the horrible big tour buses turned up. We even got a Jack fruit off a tree there and got into it, It was small and sweet - just great. You dont get that on a big tour. Its the best thing to have someone with you personally who an answer every question you have from "how far does that go" to "whats this stuff we are eating"
Everything you do and all the locations are photographed by Jason and he gives you a copy of you days activities on disc to remember. If you dont want to take photos or dont want to miss out on just looking around this is great.
I can highly recommend Jason as a guide for anywhere in the HCMC, Mekong area. His services are excellent and the value for money that you get with all the boat rides, lunch is worth every cent. Jason is punctual, knowledgable and a great person to spend some time with as there are plenty of laughs.
Highly recommended. Jason Superstar - 5 star Superstar.
