About
The Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta are two of the top attractions around Ho Chi Minh City—but it’s hard to visit both in one day independently. Combine them into one great day out on this door-to-door tour which starts at the Vietnam War–era fighting tunnels, continues to lunch in My Tho, and finishes with a river cruise, folk music performance, rowing boat trip, and candy workshop tour.

      Nice daytrip
      We went with Mr. Tanh.tv. Tour was nice as we visited many different places. Our guide was friendly and kept the mood in the group up with his humor. Because you get to do a lot of activities and spend quite some time in the car the tour can feel rushed at times. You will get many opportunities to spend extra money as they take you to different shops and ask for tips at various activities. However spending is optional and you don't have to pay more than what you paid for the initial trip.

      Good and quick glance at the Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong River
      Our tour guide Tang.TV was a fun and energetic guy who always had a good joke to tell while providing interesting infos about the spots we’ve visited. Though it could have been a bit more informative, it was definitely a good and quick tour to get to know a bit about the Cu Chi Tunnels, the lives of the soldiers and the Mekong river. The meal at the Cu Chi Tunnels was really delicious and during the tour you always got some fruits and snacks provided so you never starved.

      Wonderful whole day experience with the best guide you could wish for!
      We had a wonderful one-day tour to the tunnels and Mekong. Especially Mekong and the visit on the island made big impression for us. More than we expected. Our guide Lee was friendly and helpful telling us about Vietnam, the war, stories about Mekong and much more. We would recommend Lee at any time.

      Good but a long day
      Excellent Guide but long day (lots of time on the van) to be expected it’s quite a distance from Saigon. The trip was as advertised, the tunel camp was interesting with more than just the tunel to visit (a few exibits of life in the forest, firing range, food, etc). Lunch was good, the boat ride on the Mekong too short for my taste. On the island info and taste of honey, fruits and coconut candy and a nice boat ride on a small canal. Our guide Laughing was very good and funy.

      🤩LAM and BINH for the WIN🤩
      Lam did a wonderful job showing us around his native country. With a background in tourism studies , his proficient english, and charisma… he made quite a long day baking in the sun seem like a quick witty stroll with countless laughs. A true pleasure. Also to note our driver, Binh, he did a wonderful job and got the group to and fro from excursions without any hiccups. Not one hard break, or even a close call with motorcyclists. Very experienced and cautious driver. The group felt so safe that a majority of us felt comfortable enough to catch some zzz in the hectic street traffic so familiar to Vietnam. Incredible performance by both. Cheers to vietnam and its beauty!

    The tour at the tunnels was quite cool, but I acknowledge the merit to the quality of the "exhibition" itself. On the other hand, our guide gave us almost no information, except for random disconnected sentences about how bad the war was. But nothing directly relevant to what we were seeing. This was extremely annoying, especially because we noticed other groups had way better-prepared guides.

    The worst came in the afternoon in the mekong delta: we were just brought from shop to shop to be asked to buy products, nothing was shown or explained to us. The "traditional music performance" was embarassing: it felt artists were there just to get extra tips (they did expressively ask for it), which is fine, but makes you wonder : where are the money you pay for this tour going to? The same happened for the 5-min boat drive and other activities "shown by locals".

    Overall this tour was very bad value for money. I recommend the agency to check (English) speaking skills and quality of contents of *all* their guides and review the itinerary for the afternoon. It would be also nice to be more transparent on how "well" local collaborators are paid for their activities within the tours.

    Overall, we had a nice time. However, it seems like they waste a lot of time taking you to places where you are encouraged to buy random products. While we appreciate getting a glimpse into the local culture, they can easily skip the first break at the handicrafts market, and if they must break at that point, maybe set a time limit for guests so that things are wrapped up quickly.

    You are expected to tip at every point. That was a problem for us because we got pick-pocketed the day before and had very little cash. But, we also felt like the tour is quite expensive by itself and you should only tip for good service.

    Lunch was average. There's definitely room for improvement.

    The guide, Ethan, was informative and knowledgeable though we felt like he kept going off-track sometimes. He could make his speeches a little more concise. But, he was very nice and courteous.

    Tour was nice, but felt more like shopping tour. We got off the bus to buy some pictures at a location that wasn't mentioned in the tour description. The tunnels were really nice and our tour guide answered all our questions and told us interesting facts, but we would have liked to spend some more time there instead of the shop before. Even though it was way over 30 degrees, we only got a really small bottle of mineral water for the full day trip and had to buy a lot of drinks. Don't rely on the "included mineral water" and bring your own drinks, as everything is overpriced. Also bring a lot of money, as you are getting asked at every possibility to tip someone. Why are we asked to give the "recommended tip" at more than 5 occasions if we already pay 55$? Don't all the people get a good wage for that? On top of that, the company probably gets a lot of money for bringing us to all the shops. Also, our guide told us to give 5 stars, otherwise he would get a 10% salary reduction. This is just really sad, most of the people in the bus did it. We would have given 3 stars, but because they are getting unfair good recommendations, 2 stars are fair. Also trip with the small boat in the Mekong Delta was no longer than 10 minutes.

    It was nice to see all the things and our guide was really good. But in the end, we felt commercialised as they did everything to make us spend a lot of money and the ratings are not fair at all as they kind of force you to give 5 stars.

    Im the kind of guy that normaly not go on tours, and this day showed me how important it is to have a skillfull local guide that have nollege and experience. Lucky us that we had a really good guide Nim, he had excellent English, clear in his way of comunicating with the members of the group, eye contact so he see that everyone are followin. First we went to the tunnels and Nim was very informative and Im sure that this tour could not been done any better by anyone else. The second main part of the day was going to the Mekong river. Very nice and intresting and again very important to have a local guide with good nollege, our guide grew up in this area and knew everything in detail and he left no questions in unanswered.
    Thanks for a good day full with happenings. Serious company that act profesionally and good service.

    This was our first tour in Saigon. Our tour guide was Ethan (from Kim Travel), we were staying at an AirBrb and he picked us up from our accommodation (which is great because other tours would usually ask you to meet at a certain meeting point, if you aren’t staying at their preferred hotels). Throughout our tour Ethan was accommodating and informative! He was knowledgeable and more than willing to answer any questions. The tour stuck to the itinerary. We would definitely recommend going on this tour with Kim Travel if you want to learn about the history of these two areas. We would also like to mention that during the tour, we took different types of transportation (bus, boat, golf cart, row boat) which made it an interesting experience. If you decide to go, request for Ethan as he was energetic and had a good sense of humor. @Ethan, thank you so much for having us. I hope all is well!!
    Kind regards,
    Anna & Si-An (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

    The tour was just amazing.

    We learned all about the Cu Chi tunnels and experience just a fraction of what it was like during the war getting to walk through one. I don’t know how they did it! The area itself It was very powerful and I’d recommend it’s something everyone experiences so it need not be repeated.

    I also had the chance to try out an M16 on the firing range (60,000 per bullet with a 10 minimum) which was well worth it too.

    The trip to the delta in the afternoon took us out on the water where we stopped at a couple of islands, drinking from fresh coconuts, eating coconut candy, listening to some traditional music and boating down the river with coconut trees on either side.

    Our tour guide, Tim, was not only knowledgeable in sharing historical events and personal stories, but kept us captivated with his witty sense of humour all day and made sure that if any of us had questions or concerns, he’d do his best to make sure we were looked after. Having done many tours over the last decade, Tim is amongst the best guides we’ve had!!

    Myself and my three friends loved the tour with Mr.T! He went out of his way to provide a comfortable and entertaining tour including providing us with power banks, snacks and his own wifi while on the journey to Mekong Delta. We loved his humour and history lesson throughout the day and he even taught us some of the Vietnamese language. We would highly recommend Mr.T as a tour guide and especially the full day tour because it is much more time-efficient. The food provided was delicious and there was plenty of stops which included fruit tasting, coconut water, tea and even a short musical concert. Mr. T offered was the perfect Insta guide because he made sure to get scenic group pictures of myself and my friends throughout the day.

    We had a great tour guide Lockie! He was informative and fun, singing songs in the car and high energy! He made sure everyone was with the group in crowded areas and made sure we were all safe. He gave us plenty o opportunities to take pictures and did not rush us along. Great experience would highly recommend this trip and ask for Lockie by name! Simple Lockie is great.

    Our guide Tim was one of the best guides we have had during our Vietnam holiday.

    Unfortunately the itinerary of the trip was not great. We spent over 6 hours in the bus over the course of the day. Combining the Tunnels and the Mekong in one day is far too much driving in one day. We left at 8am and got home at 8pm. The bus allocated for this trip was not ideal given we spent so long on the bus. Seats were extremely small and very uncomfortable.

    I would not recommend this tour with its current itinerary however I would definitely recommend Tim as a tour guide
