We took the tour to Cu Chi Tunels with Sint Tourist and it wasn't good experience. The first thing is that you pay pretty much only for bus where you can go with public one for about 1/4 of price. The second thing is that our guide, nice lady spoke English fluently, but our group couldn't understand her. If we... More

We called the day before our trip to confirm what time they open and to inquire as to booking. We were told they opened at 6am and we had to purchase tickets in person for our 6:30 am bus ride when they opened. We arrived at the location at 5:51, and they opened the front doors at 6:04. But no... More

I had very good experience with Sinh cafe (now Sinh Tourist) 7 or 8 years ago The sleeping bus was great. Now in 2016 it is just an ordinary way of transport people and goods Only one stop on the way in the middle of the night for 10 minutes at a bustrip of 10-12 hours No food and very... More

We booked two day trips with Sinh Tourist. Cu Chi passages were incredible, great aide. Mekong daytrip to Ben Tre was not that great. Try not to visit amid weekends, in light of the fact that everything will be in Vietnamese. We were the main non-Asians out of 45 individuals, and everything they did was purchase stuff, drink lager, and... More

Joined a group tour to Ben Tre - My Tho 1 days and seemed to be good. The price was reasonable, service was fine. One thing is that the number of travelers was over 15, too crowded on the bus and boat.

We booked the Mekong 1 day tour. Very hard to beat the cost of the trip at around $12 AUD the trip was incredibly cheap. I heard other tourist pay 3 x the price for the same tour. Would definitely compare this tour bookings in the future.

Very quick to take your money but after that it's all down hill. We paid thousands of VND and got a really bad service from start to finish. There are many other tour companies out there, I strongly suggest you look around first.

Someone owes me 9 hours of my life back! This boat tour was horrendous. You pay for each stop you make, which is fine because it's only $2. The 'happy hour' was a disaster! 3 boats crammed together while some tacky Vietnamese does a pretend strip show with plastic cups on his nipples...I wish I was joking. The port is... More

We did the 2 day 1 night Mekong Delta tour and were really underwhelmed by the experience. If you are looking at a similar timeframe I would strongly suggest shopping around as there are plenty of alternative tour operators. Our guide (Quee) had VERY basic English and wasn't able to communicate simple things clearly (how long bus trips would be,... More

Don't book with the Sinh tourist!!! They overbook the tour. The tour guide himself told us that they normally travel with four busses. There were ten busses. We had to share one tour guide with two boats that were completely full! The tour was also in two languages, they didn't mention this before we had to wait very long! We... More

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
