The Floating Dragon Temple is not your usual run of touristy stuff from HCMC, but I recommend it highly. It's a well-kept secret (first time I've heard of it in 5 visits to HCMC) and populated mostly by locals worshipping (might have been due to coronavirus concerns). The trip upriver is smelly, but that's what happens when you don't have environmental protection standards to rule river dumping. If you can think past your olfactory senses, it's an insight into the Vietnamese everyday. The garden tour of a 'reproduction' Mekong village was good because they'd reproduced the village and the tools using traditional techniques, which made it interesting.

My one disappointment was: we originally booked Saturday 3pm, but was told that they were moving us to a tour on Saturday 5pm because there weren't enough people. But the Saturday 5pm was not the Dragon Temple tour but another river tour, and we had to bow out of it, because what we wanted was the temple. Other than that disappointment of admin, the tour itself was excellent.

Dear Selina Cheng, Thanks for choosing Dragon Floating Temple Sightseeing by Luxury Speedboat! Hope you had a good time with us, especially in Như and our suppliers Maybe it was misunderstanding between our conversation, we informed that we didn't have guide at 3pm and recommended Romantic Sunset Cocktail tour at 5pm on that date. Upon we received your feedback from our colleage that you would like to visit only Dragon Floating temple ... we opened tour on the next date (Sunday 01st Mar, 2020) although we don't have any guest to book yet. We are sorry to make you unsatisfaction. Nice to see you in next trip Best regards, Anthony Nguyen | Managing Director WhatsApp: +84 (0) 902 446 346

We went on the boat to Saigon River. The boat was an amazing way to see another side of Ho Chi Minh and was very smooth along the river. The tour guide that we had, Cate was so helpful and very sweet, she had a good sense of humour and was very easy to get along with. I would recommend using her, she was brilliant.

If you're unable to see Vietnam beyond Saigon, if you've seen the major tourist Saigon sites but feel something is lacking, and if you don't have the time to spend a full day to get to the Mekong River, then this 2hr+ tour is a perfect way to finally get an impression of this place and country, made only possible by the insightfulness of guide Kate (Phuong Nguyen) who helps fill in the details by sharing her experiences in contemporary life in Saigon. The boat ride through the waterways of Saigon gives a wonderful perspective of this diverse and expanding city and the tour of the richly decorated (and photogenic) island temple, where we felt like the only tourists, was a real highlight. Phuong also went above and beyond in anticipating the needs of my friend, who uses a walker to get around, so that he could get into and out of the boat without too much difficulty. When the water level rose 8" above the level of a portion of the boardwalk back to the boat, she directed the boat to pull up to a different access point through the coastal reeds so that my friend's shoes and feet would be dry which otherwise would be soaking wet. My friend was able to experience this boat tour exactly as I did, which is quite precious for someone with a disability who usually has to submit to compromises. This was all made possible, thanks to Phuong. Pickup and drop-off at the hotel was super convenient and worry free. While the price for the tour was not cheap, it was worth it because even though it was presented as a small group tour, we were the only ones so it was really a private tour with all the attentions to us. But I would still highly recommend this tour if we were part of a small group. Be assured, the boat is not very big, which guarantees the group to be small.

Kate our guide was so helpful and full of energy any enthusiasm.

She provided excellent background information and great informative history of the area. Had a great time in a beautiful park where we stopped for a small picnic.

Despite the rain it was a very enjoyable trip and it didn't matter it rained as Kate was just like a ray of sunshine. ☀️

We were only in HCMC for a day and a half and with 3 children under 12 we were looking for something easy to see a different side of the city.

This tour is short but just enough for the kids to see something different and learn a bit about Vietnamese culture.

Our guide, Kate was lovely and went out of her way to assist with questions and local recommendations. The price was reasonable and booking easy.

6 of us on fast speed boat(they have different boat sizes based on numbers)
Knowledgable guide Stephen.
A bit of a joker. A 2 hour fast trip up the river followed by 3 island stops. Bee hive and Kevin the python. (Holding of both optional) .
Coconut candy factory with short canoe and horse and cart followed by nice lunch then 2 hour blat back .

Gives you great appreciation of scale and sheer amount of traffic on river system.
Stephen emailed group photos next day.
They have boat and bus options too.
