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.

I was in contact with the Les Rives through email to inquire about a trip with short notice. Unfortunately I could not go due flight re-scheduling but they were very responsive, helpful and professional.

We took a boat tour with Les Rives down the Saigon River to the Mekong Delta. Along the way we made many stops and explored temples, pagodas, a farm house with a 60kg Python, a farm where we drank fresh coconut juice and had shots of dubious heart warming alcohol despite the 35 degree heat. We looked around markets, visited... More

These guys are so professional. Their boats are clean and comfortable.The day included transfers from our hotel, breakfast, lunch, soft drinks and water. Our tour guide was a wealth of information and very entertaining and made our action packed day even more enjoyable. To be able to experience and see so much in 8 hours was wonderful.

We did the 2 hour canal tour of the city by boat and the day tour by speedboat to the Mekong Delta. Both were excellent with informative guides and friendly staff. It is a fantastic way to see these parts of HCM and the Delta area. The various sights gave an interesting perspective of this part of Vietnam.

The trip was well organised, in a small group with a guide accompanying us the whole time. They pick you up from your hotel or accommodation and take you right to the water where you take a speed boat to the tunnels. They give you coffee, breakfast rolls and unlimited snacks the whole time as well as lunch on the... More

We did the morning half day tour to Cu Chi tunnels. It's expensive but we loved this tour! The boat ride is so nice and relaxing and lovely way to see the waterfront houses and villages along the way. We did the morning tour so you get there earlier than the buses and not as busy. The tour guide was... More

Do consider the time, realistic time is much longer than they tell you. We did the afternoon tour, picked up at 1.30 but not back until 8pm! Took 2.15 hours to get there which we later found out is very common due to boats being stuck in the water hyacinth! The tour felt very rushed, we didn't get to see... More

After reading reviews on trip advisor, we decided this was the easiest way to see tunnels. Smooth booking from Australia, no payment required until the trip. We were met at our hotel. The boat ride was highly recommended and very relaxing. Our guide was fabulous and gave us a fabulous tour of the tunnels. To finish off, we were given... More

Booked the cu chi tunnels trip via email. Collected us via minibus at 7.00am. All very organised, arrived at the boats (13 people on ours and plenty of room). We were given our receipt first and asked to pay at the office, we were charged 1,800,000 dong each but we asked if we could pay in dollars which was $169... More

My family was picked up at our hotel on time and taken to the headquarters where we left by boat to the cu chi tunnels. Very nice staff that offered us sandwiches, coffee, water and fruit. It was a long boat ride but we still arrived before most of the other tours. After the tour was over and before heading... More
