This is a difficult review to write as there are so many contradictions. First, I want to thank the company for returning my 2 umbrellas to the hotel. I left them in the van and they brought them to the Riverside the following morning. Very helpful and very gracious. Mr Linh (the guide) and Mr. Minh ( the driver who became known to us as Mr French from the movie The Departed...as he was so reliable) took us on a full day tour with 4 others for a total of 8 people to the Cu Chi tunnels and the Mekong. We had 3 distinct experiences and each deserve mentioning. I will try to be brief. The morning was spent at the Tunnels which were interesting and informative. Linh who is from the upper reaches of the Mekong speaks with enthusiasm and knowledge about the tunnels and with a sense of understandable pride. The conditions under which the VC fought were horrific in a sense and their endurance over the time of both the French and American presence is remarkable. He willingly and openly discussed any aspect of this conflict and I appreciate his opinion. Five stars without question. There is a stop along the way to visit a crafts shop to support local artists who may have suffered the effects of agent orange. some of the works are impressive. The second part was lunch. Delicious. Well served. Well timed. iA really good experience. I have been to VN perhaps 5 times previously but this was the first tour I had done. For some reason, my 3 sons and I were struck by how unhappy the Vietnamese appeared... unlike I witnessed during other visits and also how aggressive many were in the context of "asking" for "tips". I will explain... the Mekong Tour was a debacle. What we experienced was the simply an un-engaged group of locals who were hellbent on pushing us to give "tips" constantly. My Vietnamese friends have mentioned the growing distance between the rich and poor in VN and this may be evidence of that. While we enjoyed seeing the bee hives and hearing some of the local music, the performances appeared to lack enthusiasm and the overstated pressure to give tips was unappreciated. The trip continued to spiral down as we were put on little boats paddled by two through a dirty canal to a coconut village. Nearly every boat we passed shouted for us to "give money"... somewhat amusingly, the woman at the stern poked my youngest son (age 20) in the back constantly over the 15 minute journey while saying over and over "give money". He would reply over and over..."ask my father, he has the money". I was in the bow of the boat and really was at a loss. Foolishly, I gave her a tip at the end of the journey as I wanted her to just STFU...she got her way after all. In hindsight, my Vietnamese vocabulary includes such things as "May Den Nhu Cuc Cut Cho" and I regret not having voiced my anger. Perhaps Linh has a connection with the area and really does not see what we experienced. Or perhaps he does and this brings needed dong to an area hit hard economically... Or perhaps it really does not matter.... In conclusion...SEE THE TUNNELS AVOID THE MEKONG TOUR.

Booking the tour was very easy, not expensive. The tour guide Christoffer was great, spekas good English and told us the most important things about the tunnels and about the Vietnam war. Quite a long travel by bus, but finished it of with the traditional vietnamese soup with beef and noodles. Lovely trip that I would recommend :)

We had a wonderful time on our first night in Saigon with Dat and Long, two adorable college students. Firstly, we want to express our sincere apology to them for waiting for us. We were grateful for their tremendous patience. We savored some great Vietnamese food and were deeply impressed by the student volunteers' enthusiasm and hard work and truly appreciate such free tour programs in Saigon.

This agency was helpful in booking a tour and they were friendly. Booking a trip was easy and happened quickly. Food and a snack was also included in the price. My tourguide for the day was mr. Duy. He is a very kind guide and he is very knowledgable about the "vietnam war". I enjoyed him and his story which he tried to explain/tell in english to the best of his ability. The tour was seemed somewhat short, but I reckon that had to do with the fact that it was only me and mr. Duy in the group and that the "museum" wasn't too big. Also, it wasn't very busy at the time I visited the place and the firing range was closed due to a lack of ammunition. I learned quite alot from mr. Duy. He told me alot which I never or hardly knew about. I am glad to have had him as my guide ^-^.
