Avoid the hours on the bus to get to Cu Chi tunnels by doing this tour instead - so so SO worth it. An hour and a half on the river (with a fairly disgusting sandwich for breakfast - don't know what the other reviews are talking about with breakfast at a hotel on the river) in a fast speedbooat...

We had a great tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Very well organised with an interesting tour around the tunnels. It was probably slightly more expensive than other tours to the tunnels but we loved the speedboat tour down there, watching the river life change as we left the city. Top marks to our guide (I forget his name but... More

Chose this tour as didn't want to be sitting in a bus for hours, so glad we did. We were on a comfortable fast boat cruising the Mekong Delta. The experience was really good there was always something to see including fish jumping out the water. The guide was excellent and I appreciated we were never asked asked or expected... More

very well organized and safe river cruise tour, we loved the organisation and discovering the Can gio area just an hour away from Saigon by boat, a natural sanctuary of birds and an amazing diversity of fauna and flora, great educational tour for children about bio-diversity and conservation!

We did the Cu Chi Tunnels tour recently and were delighted to have chosen to use this company. Seeing the river life and arriving before the big crowds at the tunnels was worth it alone! Our guide was knowledgeable and tuned into our questions and needs throughout the day. The boat was clean, the fruit fresh and free-flowing, and the... More

The boat ride was brilliant - a great way to see Saigon. Breakfast food was perfectly decent, but I just had fruit. Lunch was delicious. I would recommend bringing a cardigan or similar for the boat ride though, it was quite chilly at times without one.

My husband and I did an afternoon trip and it was a great way to see the Cu Chi Tunnels. We were picked up in our hotel lobby on time and it was a short drive to board the boat. There were eight passengers on our trip and everyone was very friendly. The cruise on the Saigon River was very... More

Starting in HCM and headed to the tunnels via the Saigon river was a great way to see the countryside. Our guide Nguyen was fantastic! He was happy to answer all questions and went out of his way to provide us with all the info. We had a wonderful lunch on the river and had plenty of cool drinks and... More

I booked this tour to get a different view of Saigon and the journey to the Mekong after reading the reviews here, and the company's website. While this is definitely a unique way to get to the Mekong, to travel in/ around Saigon, and I really enjoyed the day (see 'The Good' below), I didn't feel that it lived up... More
