When we first booked this tour company because of reviews that we had read, we knew that we had done the right thing. The quick response we received and the communication that followed was nothing short of amazing.

Myself and a friend did the Mekong 'local for a day tour'. It was fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Our guide Phuong was exceptional. She was the epitome of professionalism, extremely knowledgable, her English was perfect and her sole focus was to make sure everything was to your liking and you were thoroughly enjoying yourself. This company is... More

My dad and I did the Cu Chi Tunnels by Saigon River tour and had an excellent time. We had a great guide named Tam. She spoke English very well. She was knowledgeable about her country's history and people, and takes a very thoughtful approach to teaching others about them. I only have positive things to say about each part... More

Dear tmacaw, Many thanks for your generous review over the trip Cu Chi Tunnels. However, we are Water Buffalo Tours, not Saigon River tour It will be great if you can relocate your review as Saigon River tour deserves such an excellent and supportive review Best, Khoi Nguyen More

We don't usually book tours on holiday and definitely not private ones, however this was to be a bit of a treat on our last day in Vietnam. We booked the one day Mekong Tour and were collected from our hotel at 7.30. Our guide was Ha who was extremely informative and kept us engaged for the whole day. The... More

My father, who speaks Vietnamese, and I recently went on a day tour to Mekong delta. Our guide, Phuong, was excellent. She had a tough job of engaging me in English and my father in Vietnamese. Phuong's extensive knowledge and attentiveness made the tour a wonderful experience. Not only was she familiar with the area, but really showed a great... More

We picked the Mekong day tour, and I have to say that it's every penny well-spent even though it's pricier than other tours. Our guide, Ha, was very engaging and informative. His passion for his job really shone through and made our day trip such a lovely and memorable one. Booking the tour via email was a breeze too, with... More

My wife and I have just spent 2 wonderful days being shown the delights of the Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh City. We booked the tours a couple of months back and got quick confirmation of booking via emails. The guide 'Ha' and his driver picked us up from the hotel reception exactly on time.

We booked a day trip to the Mekong Delta assuming that this would be your standard touring adventure of sight seeing & capturing some VN history. What we received was much more than we ever expected. Our tour guide Quang made this trip the most memorable & enjoyable part of our 2 week tour of Viet Nam. If you're looking... More

This company is wonderful, my husband & I opted for the advertised 1/2 day tour to Cu Chi as that was all our schedule allowed, but I wish we could have done more tours with Water Buffalo Tours. VERY knowledgeable and friendly guides - loved our whole experience. Would highly recommend!
