I booked the full day Fishing and Snorkelling - South tour for a very reasonable US$17 and sure enough it rained for most of the day (first rains for days just my luck). Hotel pick-up, transfers and tour details were very well organised and explained. Avoid the Pearl Farm and get the later pick-up as it's a waste of time.... More

We only did a tour in the South of the island, because the weather during the rainy season wasn't appropriate to visit the whole island, but we had a great time! We visited interesting and various places and the local food at lunch was just delicious. Our tour guide Bao was great and gave us interesting informations about the island,... More

What a wonderful day we had with Bao as our tour guide. Couldn't have asked for a better day. Bao was excellent, professional and very informative. His English was amazing and he had very good manners. Would recommend Johns tours anytime. All the staff were extremely helpful. Jenny, Kerrie, Deb and Louise.

Good snorkeling on a big enough boat..around 50 people on board. Normal deal for $17 per person. Lunch buffet very tasty. Water kinda dirty. Watch out for the "extra" mandatory visit to a pearl farm at the end of your day when all you want is to get back to your hotel.

We booked a tour with Johns Island and had Binh as our tour guide (sorry for misspelling of the name). It was an AMAZING experience! Binh spoke fluent English and Vietnamese so he could speak with both the younger children in English and Vietnamese to my family that came with us from Ho Chi Minh City. He was able to... More

It's the best way to visit many attractions. Visiting the Zen Pagoda in the South was the highlight of the day. Coconut prision was an interesting and moving stop. The walk alongside the waterfall, under the rain was excelent. Our tour guide, Bao was a great leader. He is knowledgeable and cares for his tourists. He made sure I have... More

We did the South Island tour with Bao 2 days ago. Bao was knowledgable and very friendly. We started at 9am and had to get back to the hotel at 4pm to catch a flight back to Saigon - our guide was accommodating to this and made sure we were back at 4pm on the dot! The only thing that... More
