We booked this tour on internet. The booking was confirmed very quick and with almost no effort at all everything was settled. We were picked up at our hotel with a nice Toyota SUV, which was comfortable to ride. Our guide Ha was great and took us to places that we felt was exclusively for us. No other tourist around...

We did the full day tour with Jason as our guide. I didn't realize when booking (though it should have been obvious) that I was booking a private tour so it was just 3 of us, the driver, and Jason. It ended up being fantastic because we didn't have to wait for any wandering parties or slow pokes and could... More

We organised our tour via the internet and were immediately impressed with the company's efficient, friendly and informative communications. For the first two days of our tour we visited sites in and around Saigon. We particularly enjoyed walking around the different types of local markets, visiting the museums and travelling to see the Chi Cu tunnels. The next four days... More

We had a great day with Hang (hope I spell it right). She greeted us with a big smile in the morning and was a lovely guide throughout (Thanks for all your tipps on what to do in Saigon and Dalat :)). We especially enjoyed the bike ride through the local villages, stopping at green rice paddies and a local... More

We went on the Can Gio Ecological Biosphere Conservation tour. It was great as it seems to be a tour few other organisations do so quite often we were the only tourist at a location. We saw and learnt about the work to converse the mangroves area. We were taken on a punt to see some fruit bats and while... More

Water Buffalo Tours thinks of everything in terms of experiences, comfort and safety, and we felt in very good hands. Water Buffalo Tours chose some good places to see around the Mekong Delta, and did it in a way where we avoided the crowds of other tourists. The guide knew a lot about both Vietnam (as well as other countries),... More

Our tour pick up happened at the hotel at 7:30am and we were dropped off back at the hotel at around 5:30pm. The tour includes boat ride, bike/cycle ride, lunch, bottled water etc. The... More

My husband and I were in Ho Chi Minh for just three days and so needed to pack a lot in. We went on the Mekong Local for a day and the Cu Chi Tunnels half day tours. The Mekong covered so many varied experiences from local markets to riding through the paddy fields to the seaside for fresh seafood.... More

- We booked two tours with this company, the day Saigon, Chu Chi Tunnel tour and the one day Mekong Delta tour. Both tours we did with Quang as our tour guide. He was great, very knowledgable about the area and happy to introduce us to his family on the Mekong Delta tour. The Chu Chi tunnel tour gave us... More
