This activity offers a nice comfy excursion out of the busy city of Dalat to the countryside. The coffee shop which is part of this tour is quite nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee as it has some nice exposed view of the coffee farm. The falls are very nice. There are some walks down and up the elephant falls but it is worth it as you can get quite close to the waterfall and behind, underneath the fall! I also have to recommend it for the super nice guide, Tin Tin, humorous and knowledgable. I recommend it!

For those who only have a few days to spend in Ho Chi Minh, a tour of the city is highly recommended. It offers the visitors the opportunity to get a feel of the city's architecture and life. We started off with the Reunification Palace, formerly known as the Presidential Palace. This important city landmark assured its place in history on April 30, 1975 when the first North Vietnamese tanks rumbled past, signaling the fall of Saigon and ultimately the end of the Vietnam War. Currently the building is set as a museum with various meeting areas (still used for diplomatic and government meetings), war rooms and a basement communication center. Our next stop was the Notre Dame Cathedral which dates back to the 19th century. It is one of the most popular places and a backdrop for wedding photographs. Across the street from the Cathedral is the city's striking French colonial era post office, whilst Hotel de Ville de Saigon, officially Ho Chi Minh City Hall is another of the city's most prominent buildings. Another example of French colonial architecture is the Saigon Opera House (built in 1898) which stands right at the heart of the city. Our last stop was at the Jade Emperor Pagoda, is a Taoist temple build by the Chinese community in 1909. The temple exhibits various phantasmagorical divinities and grotesque heroes, having the Jade Emperor or the king of Heaven at its center.

Our tour of Saigon started as we disembarked from our cruise ship, the Azamara Quest on Tuesday, October 22. We didn't have to walk more than 50 feet before our driver, Henry Hoang, held up the sign with our names on it. We quickly noticed that Henry spoke English very well, and that he had a big welcoming smile on his face. As we started driving through Saigon, Henry's knowledge of Vietnam's history was apparent, and our questions about his country were answered clearly, and completely. We were mainly interested in the War Museum, because of our interest in the war that was such a part of our lives growing up in the 60's. But, per Henry's suggestion, we visited the Ben Tranh market first, saving the visit to the museum for a little later. This was a good suggestion, because after the moving, and emotional museum visit, we probably wouldn't have felt much like shopping had we done the museum first. It was a wonderful day, with an exceptional guide. Odynovo had again provided us with and interesting and educational tour.

This This is an ideal tour to fully experience Vietnam, plus enjoy lunch by the pool. Our guide aka Joseph ? (Tour date:17.9.19) organised our group well. We visited Notre dame Cathedral but could not go in as its being restored. However the Post Office across the road was another historic building. The highlights of the tour were the Palace, War remnants Museum and the tunnels at Cu Chi.
