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.

Our family joined the Les Rives Cu Chi Tunnels Morning Tour and really enjoyed the experience. Our tour guides were friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The boat trip to the tunnels was an excellent method of transport and the Chu Chi tunnels tour was insightful and interesting. In all, an excellent experience that was one of the highlights of our Ho... More

We were reluctant to "do" the delta as we had read so much negative comment about it being a hassle getting there with long bus loads and then hordes of tourists everywhere. If this is your reaction then do yourself a favour and book the day tour with Les Rives. The maximum on the tour is 16 - we had... More

Friendly tour guide (but he's clean shaven and has a foot long hair coming out of his mole!) boat ride very relaxing. Entrance provided to tunnels for an informative visit of life during the war. Chance to fire guns, bullets about 15 quid for 10 which seems expensive. Drop off back at hotel. Lunch OK too boot

We went on the 7am tour (family of four) and even though it was an early start for the teenagers, we thoroughly enjoyed the 1/2 day tour. The boat ride to Cu Chi tunnels was enjoyable and a "cool" way to enjoy the trip, rather than sitting on a bus etc. We arrived to beat all the crowds that would... More

My best friend and his family had just moved to Ho Chi Minh and I was visiting them. We did the Cu Chi Tunnels and Countryside Tour which was a great way to give them a quick introduction to where they will be living for the next few years. Our guide, Chau, picked us up by boat early morning and... More

I am very reluctant to go on group tours, and usually try to explore on my own. However, the Les Rives experience would have been impossible without their knowledge and expertise. I felt like I got a true glimpse of life on the Mekong Delta, without ever feeling like I was in a tourist area. We even ate lunch at... More

We did the Cu Chi tour which was great beating the crowds but we loved the Mekong day trip the best. Hang was a terrific guide so informative and we saw more of the real Saigon and Mekong areas on this tour. These trips were both highlights of our Saigon visit - highly professional tourist adventures. Great trips for our... More

We spent a fantastic day on the Les Rives speed boat with our wonderful guide. Although we are visitors in someone else's country, we felt this tour provided us with as much of an authentic cultural insight into life along the Mekong Delta as we could have had as tourists. We saw people working along the river and passed houses... More

A group of us were interested in visiting the Chu Chi tunnels on a day trip. This tour is the best way to avoid the lengthy commute by road and many of the commercial pit stops that will load you up with souvenirs at above market prices. Your road is the Saigon river - once in the very modern /... More

This is the BEST thing that I did in Vietnam! You spend lots of time on the Saigon River, Mekong River, and Mekong Delta. Jet boat is the only way to go. It is better than taking the long bus ride out of the city to spend less time on the Delta. Spend the extra money for this once in... More
