Description:

Let us take you on a journey to some of the world's most significant sites....

Let us take you on a journey to some of the world's most significant sites. Visit the historical Cu Chi tunnels, the laidback backwaters of the lush Mekong Delta and the UNESCO-listed Can Gio Biosphere Reserve. We offer authentic experiences in areas that can only be accessed via the region's scenic waterways. Cruise between verdant rice paddies and mirror-like pools along the tributaries and canals of the river of nine dragons - the Mekong Delta. Step back into Vietnam's not-too-distant past at the Cu Chi Tunnels to experience wartime life. Cruise mangrove forests off Vietnam's southern coastline and learn about the diverse flora and fauna of captivating Can Gio. Fall into the local rhythm and take time to enjoy the here and now. Connect with Vietnam's landscapes, warm people and perhaps, even yourself.

Did the morning trip to Cu Chi tunnels. Picked up from our hotel (which was on the river) by boat and enjoyed beautiful fresh fruit and a great commentary on the swift journey up the Saigon River. We arrived fairly early so it was quietish at the tunnels. Our guide, Tan, spent the whole trip with us, which felt like... More

This river cruise was fantastic. The crew were great, especially Tim Tam. Tim Tam was extremely informative and gave a wonderful insight into life in Vietnam as well alot of information about points of interest that we came across on the day. The cruise is something everybody should experience if they are in HCMC. We were well looked after with... More

Myself and my girlfriend were picked up by the bus as promised right on time from our hotel and proceeded to pick another 5 people up from a couple more hotels before driving 5-10 mins to a hotel next to the river. We met our guide here and hopped onto the speed boat filled with complimentary water, coke, fruit and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and experience with this company. The tour guide and staff were friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge. Best part of the tour included the donations to the locals we visited. The breakfast that we didn't eat went to a family on the side of the river. Also, the company pays money to the people... More

Went on the day tour to the mangrove forest. It included a comfortable boat ride first to a market outside the bustle of Ho Chi Minh. Then we went to the mangrove forest and saw bats. We ended by going to another location to feed the alligators, bird watch, and had a delicious lunch. This wasn't just decent tour food,... More

Our guide was very knowledgable about the city and the areas we passed. We stopped and watched a local lady making incense... More

The trip was well organised and the guide was very helpful. It s a perfect addition to your Saigon stay. The river near the city is heavily polluted but that should not become a deal breaker imo.
