We took the mekong delta one day trip. The booking process at their office wasn't the best service that we have experienced in HCM, as the counter staff looked annoyed when too many questions were asked and didn't seem eager to sell the tour. The guide that we had was a vietnamese who could speak english, but there were certain... More

Took a bus ride from Nha Trang to Dalat with TheSinhTourist. Like what others have echoed, the ladies at the ticketing/cashier counter need to smile more (or maybe they're just jaded from seeing too many tourists). Bus left on time exactly at 8am and driver wasn't speeding or driving recklessly. Tip: Do not take seats 5-8 as the floor isn't... More

The good thing about this one day tour with The Sinh Tourist is they usually can accommodate more people, even last minute. And it's worth the money, hassle free, specially when you don't have much time to organize things and research. They let you experience different things, although things are little, but at least it's a good mix. For people... More

We used the Sinh Tourist open bus from northern Vietnam to HMC, with numerous stops between. Pros: one of the best and most reliable bus companies in the country; buses always left on time; clean buses; every time you can reserve specific seats in advance. Cons: like other open buses the beds are tiny, impossible to sleep if you are... More

I chose this tour because of the really low price (less than 200.000 VND per person for a whole day including lunch). We departed exactly on time and rode for 1 hour 40 in a comfortable bus to a boat pier near My Tho, where we boarded a 'large' motorboat on the Mekong river. 30 minutes later, we changed this...

Were recommended by tourists we met in Saigon, who clearly had much lower standards than us. We took the bus from Ho Chi Minh to Nhà Trang. Journey was bad, God knows what money grabbing moron designed the sleeper bus, you're packed in like sardines, barely enough room to walk to your 'bed' which is just about big enough for... More

Me and my friend booked a full day tour to Cuchi Tunnel and HCM city tour online at about USD17 for 2 pax. The tour starts at 745am. We woke up late around 715am and made a call to inform them we wouldn't be able to rush to their office therefore we couldn't make it in the morning and asked... More

Staff is helpful.. Our tour guide is great ... Learned a lot from the tour. I only booked an hour before the tour. They tell you exactly what you will do. One thing that may improve their tour is have a megaphone or microphone in the bus. I cant hear the guide sometimes.

Booked with Sinh Tourist 1/2 day tour to Cu Chi Tunnel followed by 1/2 day HCMC tour. A not so pleasant experience and would be cautious to recommend them to anyone. Am not sure why but there was only 1 tour guide to 3 busloads of tourists. Our tour guide while knowledgeable about the attractions was unfriendly and treated everyone... More

i went on two day trips with The Sinh Tourist: Mekong Delta and The Cu Chi Tunnels. The tour was super relaxed, full of historical facts and the tour guide was super funny and was probably the highlight of the tour: Nguyenvan Cung. Thank you

Barcelona, Spain

I have just finished my "open bus tour" with the real bus company Sinh Open bus- i think i dont need to write right address of all the offices the have around Vietnam to confirm that i was at the real one...-

My experience has been definitely bad...They dont do what the add.

  The staff in general are very rude...The first contact person at saigon office didnt want to sell the open bus ticket,only single one...She said to me. "busy season.We dont sell it anymore now" but I asked to her colleague few minutes later next to her and, she sold it to me without any trouble.That was weird to me.

They offer you an sleeper bus with wifi and WC but from Saigon to Hanoi i only found one bus with wifi and WC and... the worst thing is the bus stopped in the middle of the road for doing your necessities in the middle of the "countryside" They dont even stop you in a bar restaurant or petrol station...I couldnt believe it! and that not happened only one time... it was very often.

  One time, the staff by mistake took my backpack outside the bus at one stop but it was not my stop and they lied to me keeping telling i left my backpack outside when we did a 30 min stop for taking more passengers.Why i should take my backpack away my bus when my destination was another one? I was so glad when my backpack arrived next day.At least,the office staff arranged it without any problem as it should be.

In Hue, the bus stopped not at the central office of Hue just for taking commission from the motorbikes and taxis drivers. I went with a local to the office and i met the same office attendant who was waiting for our bus outside the city.what could you do when that happen to you? You just feel very upset...I was going to take a day tour with them but after all of these bad experiences i didnt and i am glad about that.Not very truthful people.Of course, not all of them but MOST of them...

And you cant sleep at night time the driver doesnt stop horning driving.So, you arrive to your next destination without any sleep...even being inside an sleeper bus...

Next time, i ll take the as many trains as i can.Cheap,much comfortable and single bus ticket if it is needed...

I took the train to Sapa and it was much nicer quier and cheap and the train allow you at least to use the wc and to enjoy the view at day time having beds at night time.

  i just wish that this info will be useful to someone who is thinking about buying this open bus ticket from sinh tourist.

I dont know why is recommended by the lonelyplanet guide,maybe they use to be good but not anymore.

Regards
