The best boat tour! We went at sunset. The boat and crew were outstanding! They offer snacks and drinks on board. Any questions we had about sites our guide had extensive knowledge of.

Lovely experience; a must do when in Saigon. We took our guests who were visiting and they felt it was the best thing that they did while in Saigon. They organize food, drinks (beer on tap), cutlery, crockery, music et al…you dont have to do anything. Plus there is a toilet onboard too 😊

Just did a sunset cruise last night and it was totally fabulous! Worth every penny!

Hanh, the director, was charming and informative. Boat is very nice, I think much cooler than a lot of the other ones available for hire (originally built for cruising the canals in Amsterdam according to Hanh). All sorts of odd things to see along the river front. We booked for a little later than the usual time and I would recommend that as the city looks spectacular when it starts to get dark.

We choose this river cruise because of the reviews, and we're not disappointed.

From the moment we were picked from our hotel in the taxi, we knew this was a friendly tonight company who are genuinely interested in your ad a tourist to their city. Ngan (sorry if the spelling is incorrect), spoke excellent English and she was very knowledgeable with any question we asked. A smiling, friendly person.

The river cruise was very relaxed, with drinks in boarding the boats, nuts, olives, sliced salami for drinks and nibbles.

Ngan answered any questions we had. There was only 4 of us on this cruise.

I always like to see a city from the river perspective, and this cruise did not disappoint.

Ending this tour, coming back to the city whilst the sun was setting was such a nice sight to see.

I would highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed a relaxing ride along the river, taking in the sites of the city and of the sunset. Snacks and drinks pillows on the comfortable benches, one other group with which to share travel stores and plenty of selfies made for an enjoyable evening. We also appreciated the opportunity to disembark in the main part of the city to explore that area on foot. (We then took an Uber home). Recommended!

Very good guide, drinks and food! Very cosy and a bit of relaxing time away from the big city. Go for it :-)

I did this trip with Ngan as the guide on 1/1/2020. While she was sweet, the trip itself left much to be desired. It was nothing short of a long boat ride with little to no context about the neighborhoods the boat went through. More could have been done and said the various neighborhoods. Additionally, one of the guests smoked on the boat. The company should have a no smoking policy for the duration of the trip. Some of us can't stand the smell of cigarettes and oh by the way, there were kids on the boat. The guy smoked 3 cigs. Will NOT recommend this trip for any tourist. Your money is better spent eating the amazing food that Saigon has to offer instead.

Dear Richard, We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the trip. Unfortunately, we were not made aware about your complaints during the trip so that we could have taken necessary action. Most of our customers love to be on the water for 2 hours and enjoy the sights of Saigon while zipping on some drinks. Our guide does usually give some explanations about the different sights. We will review if we need to give some more information. Despite the boat trip we hope you had a great time in Vietnam! Kind regards, Saigon Boat Company Management
