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.

It was a great and flawless tour. Got picked up at hotel, brought to the pier with minimal admin to do, introduced to very friendly, english speaking tour-guide. Hopped on the boat and enjoyed an assortment of baguettes and local fruits for dessert while watching HCM go by. Had no problem understanding the guide and I would say the content... More

We took the Mekong River tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff wee excellent including the informative guide. Even though this was a small group tour we felt we were off the beaten track and we didn't bump into other tourists the whole day. We visited local markets, temples and families and had lunch in a village. The food was... More

we, a family of 4, took 2 tours with Les Rives. They arrived on time for the pick up and the speedboat was a quick and novel way to get to our destinations but the sections of river that we sped along were either amongst the city and it's outskirts or the pollution strewn canals.........there were of course sections of...

My friend and I did the cocktail sunset cruise on the Saigon River. The service was excellent! From the beginning, we were taken care by the lovely staff. Finger food and fresh fruits on board were really good. The speedboat is beautiful and recent. It was very pleasant to be on board and enjoy the different views of Saigon. The... More

My boyfriend and I did 2 tours with this group, the Mekong River Delta day tour and the morning Cu Chi tunnels tour. Both trips were excellent. The guides had great English and were very charismatic. There was plenty of food and drink available while travelling on the boat and the lunches provided were really delicious. The guides picked us... More

I loved this tour because it shows you what life is like in Saigon, along the river and in the delta area. Great staff and a wonderful guide that could explain everything and gave us lots of information.

Les Rives is first rate all the way! We actually went on 2 tours - Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels. We were met at our hotel by a representative from Les Rives. He was exactly on time. The vehicles used were super clean. The speed boats are spotless! Even the life jackets were sparkling and clean. Our contact and... More

We booked a day trip with Les Rives on a speed boat. Day started with a hotel pick-up, brought us to the docks and we took off with a small group to Cu Chi tunnels. It took 45mins to get there. Drinks and fresh fruits are provided the whole way there. After the visit, a very well layed out lunch... More

We had a great trip with Les Rives to the Mekong Delta. Travelling by boat was far better than many hours cramped up in a bus. But best part was the complete absence of other tourists. The tour took us to genuine village life and not to shops as on most other tours. Had a huge lunch at an orphanage... More

This was a great tour, full of new and intriguing information about Vietnam, great fruit and beautiful views. The service was great, cold drinks and fresh fruit served continuously on the boat. Our gude was offering lots of new to us information about Vietnam and answering all our questions. One of the best in Vietnam.
