Booked for the mekong delta day tour. I was so excited to have this Floating Market tour and we got VERY FEW boats to see. No selling and trading at all except for one boat where they bring their the tourists to buy some fruits. I guess it's because we arrived there at 10AM and the tour guide kept telling... More

Did two tours: the Cu Chi Tunnel half-day trip and a Mekong Delta (Cai Be, Vinh Long) tour. They're very heavy on the mass market appeal — lots of desks, lots of people on every tour, but all in all it's pretty comfortable. I've been on worse tours, for sure, and when you're paying like $3-$15 for most tours it's... More

We read lots of reviews before we booked and didn't have high expectations when we started the tour in Ho Chi Minh, outside their office. The guide (looks like Tiger Woods according to his joke about himself) was really nice and helpful. Unlike the staff at the Sihn Tour office, he was smiling and was polite, he seemed like he...

We travelled with several busses of the Sinh Tourist company. We asked if the busses have airco and they say yes, but in fact they don't use it. We asked the driver turn it on and they will for 5 minutes and then put it off again, I believe in order to save petrol. It was extremely hot and moisture.

Our Cai Be - Vinh Long tour (in Mekong Delta) was simply great: kind & informative guide (19 Dec), good bus & boat across the delta, many demonstrations about how many things you can make from rice and how the people leave. You can taste samples and buy only if you want. Not pushed. Great boat trip on medium &... More

Did the half tour day to the Cu Chi tunnels, and really enjoyed it. I went with Sinh as they were much better value than most of the other tour operators. Our guide spoke perfect English, was really clear and informative, and worked hard to keep the group together. We were a large group, having mostly filled a coach, but... More

The tour was perfectly organized in terms of punctuality. What I didn't like was the attitude of the people in the head office when we went there to buy the ticket as well as the day after in the morning when we got there to check in for the tour. Also, we were 2 busses - so a huge group... More

Out of the tours we did in Vietnam this one was not the cheapest, also not the most expensive, but the least enjoyable one. "Floating Market" is an exaggeration, there were a few boats, that was it. Am not sure whether we were simply at the wrong spot, or maybe at the wrong time....More like a casual river boat ride,... More

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
