We did the Cu Chi Tunnels trip with this company and thought it was great. Worth paying the extra money to travel by boat rather than coach. Booking was extremely easy via email with payment on the day, prompt pick up. The boat was great fun - shaded with plenty of water/refreshments along the way. Some reviewers have commented on...

My husband, 5 kids and I went on Les Rives to Cu Chi. The entire day was a great experience. Well organized and efficient. They picked us up at our apartment and dropped us off. I highly recommend the entire experience!

What a wonderful way to see the Cu Chi Tunnels! Our guide Tam picked us up in time from our hotel, our boat left on schedule & we were well cared for the entire trip. The boat ride was a blast, even the frequent stops to clear water hyacinth from the propeller proved to be a bit of fun as... More

A chance meeting in an elevator with some Brits' (thanks Lawrence and Megan) lead to us booking Les Rives 'jet boat' to explore the Mekong Delta. The very thought of enduring three or four hours on a bus from Saigon, with the obligatory 'factory visits' to sell overpriced trinkets, was leaving me completely cold. The only bus ride was 10...

Travelling down the river on a speed boat is a great way of staying cool in the heat of HCM. Excellent service with water , cold drinks and fruit served throughout the trip for your convenience. I was travelling in April and the river had been consumed with a floating mass of live and growing vegetation and flowers, it was... More

We travelled for the day trip to Cu Chi tunnels using the "speedboat". We were prepared to pay the relatively high cost of travelling with Les Rives to arrive at the tunnels before the big bus tours had arrived. Indeed, this is one of their main pros compared to taking the bus. However, the river was full of lotus plants... More

Fantastic experience, knowledgeable guide, friendly staff that show respect to community elders and families that we visited. This tour brings the tourists together with the locals, tells stories and explain ways and customs that could only be given by people who are working together with the community. The tour strives to move beyond a commercial enterprise and a proportion of... More

We did not want to be on a bus for hours so took the river tour, it was great. Our guide Tam was wonderful and made it easy for us to get a better understanding of life on the river. We visited a local market, temples, farm houses and an orphanage along the way. Food and drink was included and... More
