We are not really " tour" people, but this one, with just another 10 fellow travellers, a good guide that tells you just enough facts and stories ( doesn't give so much info that you get bored and stop listening), great food and the fact that you go on a boat, was just perfect!

This trip comes highly recommended. Travelling up the Siagon river on to the Cu Chi Tunnels is far more enjoyable than sitting in a van for two hours. The tour was informative, the staff excellent and the lunch 1st class. I would use this company again and have already recommended them to friends at work.

We were picked up promptly at our hotel at 7AM for the 7:30 trip and once at the dock we met up with the other members of our group - 15 in all. We had decided on this trip to avoid having to travel by bus and to see life along the river. River traffic included everything - large and... More

We took the speed boat to the cu chi tunnels rather than the bus as it is faster (only 1 hour) and i'd say a more scenic journey. Got a great view of saigon as we left on the boat, as we sped along we had a nice look at river life along the saigon river. Our guide Viet was... More

With the time limited in HCMC I decided to take this boat trip rather than the bus & it proved to be an excellent decision. The river journey was a mini tour in itself & the Cu Chi tunnels tour was very entertaining & educational. Meal after was also 1st class. If time ltd , take this trip. Tim C

We had booked the morning tour well in advance, since it's recommended for avoiding crowds etc. About a week before the tour we received an email informing us that we'd have to be moved much later to a hotel pickup time of 1:15pm, even later than their normal afternoon tour, because transport on the river had been banned during the...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the half day trip by speed boat to Cu Chi tunnels. We were picked up promptly from our hotel and driven to the pier. There were 10 others on our trip. We boarded the boat at about 7.15 and the boat took about 1 hour and 20 minutes to get to Cu Chi. We... More

My husband and I took the Mekong Delta day trip and enjoyed it very much. We were lucky and only had two other people on the tour with us. Our guide gave us good insight into what life was really like in HCMC and along the Mekong/Saigon rivers. We got to see two religious sites (temple/pagoda) and learn a bit... More

Excellent cruise with very friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff. The guide was very informative and spoke English very well. Plenty of fruit and refreshments were very welcome on the boat and lunch was great as well, there were many interesting places on the way. It was a great experience, everything was arranged professional. It was really high standard cruise. Complete... More

We recently did the morning tour to Cu Chi tunnels and agree it is the best way to go. Picked up from our hotel on time, there were about 15 on our trip. Despite what others have mentioned about the breakfast, I thought it was quite Ok - bread roll with pork paste and salad, plenty of fresh fruit &... More
