🐙I came to the hotel very early to prepare at 7:50 a.m. I went ahead and walk around the city tour destinations first to not get later lost.
🐙I came back to the hotel at 8:50 a.m. Although I had prepared, I still had troubles. I knew my guests were from Europe, but two foreigners (I guessed that they were Korean) walked up to me and the receptionist said to me that my guests were European. So, I was wrong.🐛 After that, I thought that I was lost because I had just took my guest around the hotel for about 3 minutes. Oh my god, unbelievable.
During the tour
🐙The first destination was Ben Thanh market. I told them some information about it. They were interested in the goods, decoration of this place. John took some photos of the main gate after I told them that on the top of the tower was the watch, which was the symbol of this market.
🐙The second destination was Nguyen Hue Walking Street. After I shared some information about this place. We walked to see all the view there. We talked to know each other better. I was very surprised when I knew that John was a manager and Sally was his clerk. He said she were just his girlfriend but they lived in the same house🐡🐡. So,…
🐙The third destination was the Opera House. They easily recognized that it was the Opera House because they had visited a similar one in Hanoi. Really, their memory was very good.
🐙The fourth destination was Notre Dame Basilica. In that church, they were interested in the story of three spells. 🐙The fifth destination was Central Post Office. When we had just gone here, there were some person implored us to help them. They said that they were members of the Study Encouragement Society. They wanted my guests to join a mini game so that they could took some photos to finished an album and raised fund to help students who lives in difficult areas. They asked Sally and John. And they decided to join in the activity. I said “You have 5 minutes to finish this because I must take my guests on the tour to make in back on time, Ok ?”. They agreed. I thought that Sally and John felt surprised and happy. I asked them “How did you feel when you joined this ?” 🐝🐝They said “Amazing, …It was fun …”.
🐙The last destination was Reunification Palace. I wanted to share some information but the place was too large to say anything.
After the tour ended, they told me that I was a good guide. I hope they were really happy with this tour.
