We did the Cu Chi tunnel tour, booked one day earlier at the Les Rives Kiosk near the Pier. It might look like a lot of money at first, but restrict themselves to fairly small groups and offer hotel pickup, drinks and fruits as much as you want, a good (English-speaking) guide with lots of detailed knowledge and a proper...

We enjoyed an unforgettable day trip to the Can Gio Mangrove Forrest with Les Rives. Any preconceived apprehensions normally plaguing a family with young children were dispelled as soon as we stepped on board. Our 3 and 5 year old were hooked from the word go. For them the handing out of life jackets spelled extreme adventure. The boat was... More

From the moment we arrived at the pier we felt welcomed by the Les Rives team. The boat was superb, extremely comfortable, modern and with plenty of shade to keep cool in the heat. The tour guide was really friendly and made everyone feel at ease - even the moody toddler (ours)! We were given some amazing insights into the... More

There are many ways to see the tunnels, but I didn't want to be stuck on a bus for hours to get there. The Saigon River Express offers travel by boat and I have to say, I was really impressed. It was quite thrilling, picturesque and a relaxing trip away from the hustle and bustle from the city centre. The... More

We took the trip to the Mekong delta through Les Rives. As most other people said, it was expensive and much more money than it should have been, however I'm glad we went. We had unlimited drinks and snacks, they also offered us breakfast (although if you're a veggie, it's just a cheese sandwich). The trip itself was amazing, our... More

I booked this tour from my hotel in Saigon (much cheaper than booking from Australia!). Flying up the Saigon River in a speedboat was a wonderful way to travel to Chu Chi - it was cool, we were served drinks and fruit en route and I got to know the other 4 people in the group. On arrival we had... More

A full day out cruising the Mekong delta and discovering some of the real life here. It's a very good and well thought out tourist plan, safe and yet with many surprises. There's plenty of time to get to know the guide a little and your fellow tourists even more and the highlight for me was sharing a few shots... More

A rather expensive way to visit the tunnels but after reading all the wonderful reviews, we gave it a go. Guide and staff were excellent. The boat ride to the tunnels was a nice trip up river. Food and drinks provided onboard. After the visit, lunch is provided. Simple lunch but quite tasty.

This is one of the tours being offered/suggested by the hotel where I stayed when I visited HCMC. It's expensive compared to the other tours but the staff at my hotel assured me that it will be worth it. I went here to read some reviews before I book the tour to Cu Chi District. mostly because of the positive... More

My husband and I decided to book this tour after reading the rave reviews on tripadvisor. The hotel tour desk also told us this was the best tour to Cu Chi, albeit being much more expensive than other coach or van tours. We were promptly picked up at seven from our hotel and taken to the pier where we boarded... More
