We wanted to go to the Cu Chi Tunnels while in Ho Chi Minh City. We didn't want to take the bus tour and the river cruise just sounded so much nicer. There were are about 10-12 people on the boat, so it was not crowded. The trip up the Saigon River was relaxing. We enjoyed seeing the river life... More

This was just a brilliant day out and excellent value for money. It is THE way to visit the tunnels. An hour and a half speed boat up the Saigon River ( the same coming back) - all soft drinks breakfast and an excellent lunch at the tunnels included, plus pick up and return to your hotel, all for $79(US)....

I went on a half day trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels with this company and I have to say the whole thing was well organised and the staff were great. I was picked up promptly from my apartment in the morning and taken to the meeting point to wait for the other customers. At the end of the tour... More

Our party of 4 and a 2 year old were picked up from hotel just after 7am in nice van and taken safely to wharf where we were quickly organised and put onto boat. After a quick briefing by the guide, we were served sandwiches,fresh fruit and iced coffee. Cold drinks were on offer there and back. We were informed... More

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
