Owner description: Let us take you on a journey to some of the world's most significant sites. Visit the historical Cu Chi tunnels, the laidback backwaters of the lush Mekong Delta and the UNESCO-listed Can Gio Biosphere Reserve. We offer authentic experiences in areas that can only be accessed via the region's scenic waterways. Cruise between verdant rice paddies and mirror-like pools along the tributaries and canals of the river of nine dragons - the Mekong Delta. Step back into Vietnam's not-too-distant past at the Cu Chi Tunnels to experience wartime life. Cruise mangrove forests off Vietnam's southern coastline and learn about the diverse flora and fauna of captivating Can Gio. Fall into the local rhythm and take time to enjoy the here and now. Connect with Vietnam's landscapes, warm people and perhaps, even yourself.

We did the half day cu chi tunnels trip. Arrived by boat and got to see the tunnels before most of the tourist bus trips had arrived. Our guide was excellent and very informative. Well worth doing and a great day out.

We went on the river trip to the Chi Chu tunnels which was perfect. Great guides, lovely food and very informative. The following day we joined the American Jeep and river tour - a MUST for everyone. Couldn't have been looked after better and were treated like VIP's

Had a fantastic time on the Saigon River and at the Cu Chi tunnels. The half day tour cost about 1,800,000 dong pp and was worth every dong! We hot picked up from the hotel at 7am and were on the boat by 7.20am. The boat trip took about 1 1/2 hours and was a great start to the day.... More

Had a great morning trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels using "Les Rives". We were picked up early - at 7am - and driven to the wharfs where we took a speedboat along the Saigon RIver, to and from the tunnels . We joined a group of about 8 other people. The river journey was very interesting, providing a snap... More

We did the Mekong River day trip a few days ago (Jan 17) and it is exactly as described by other travellers. We were a group of 7, which was nice as we had the boat to ourselves. Pick up and drop off service to hotels, an excellent and polite guide, and 3 other staff on the boat to cut... More

We were met in the reception of our hotel and walked across the road to the dock. We did the morning tour and there was a lovely light meal available on the boat and drinks were also available. It was all presented beautifully and kept in eskies. The speedboat was a lovely way to travel to the tunnels and get... More

We booked this one day speedboat tour of the Mekong Delta via our travel agent who used Travel Indochina for our Vietnam arrangements. We were picked up at our hotel by a guide in a minibus, then transferred to the dock, which for us was not really necessary as our hotel was a 5 minute walk from the dock. The... More

We had Ban, who was a great guide. He met us on time at the hotel with the transfer to the river. On the way, our guide informed us as to some locations around the river. once we got at the tunnels, he took us through a history lesson about the area and where all the tunnels and camps were....

We did the morning Cu Chi Tunnel tour by boat, and were so glad that we did. The group was small, and the transport by boat was both hassle-free and interesting. Breakfast was delicious (coffee/tea/soft drinks, sandwiches and fresh fruit), lunch hit the spot (spring rolls, soup and two main dishes with rice) and our tour guide was informative, friendly...
