    If the frist, you come a HCM city! You can go by saigon waterbus and explore more a culture. But, you should go in time: 07:00 - 11:00 are so better!

    I had booked this car with Mr Alex who was fast and affirmative in responding to my queries.
    Booked the car for 6 hours with airport pickup to Cu Chi tunnels and then Back to City center hotel drop off. Paid 1300,000 dongs at the airport before we started the journey.
    Any additional hour would have costed 80,000 dongs as per arrangements.

    The driver was good with steady hands and we had a enjoyable trip.

    Arriving at Ho Chi Minh City airport in rush hour can be a little overwhelming so it was a relief to be met by a driver from Saigon Transporter and handed a bottle of chilled water. Drive to central Ho Chi Minh City was smooth and uneventful and invoice was sent direct to my email - I recommend this excellent company. Very easy to pre-book the transfer online from Australia via their live chat page (available in English). You can book it and pay for it on arrival. I booked mine the night before I arrived and they were safely there waiting for me. A taxi will cost you between $7-$10 USD - this will cost $15 so a bit more than a taxi but if you want someone waiting for you and don't want to try to deal with the taxis then this is a reliable and comfortable service.

    modern bus with full reclining seats where you can almost fully lay back. took this service from HCMC to can tho a 3 hour bus ride very comfortable for such a long ride. i would give it a rating of 5 if it had on board toilets, but they do stop the bus at half way for a quick break.

    The bus was a sleeper bus with three rows totaling 34 lounger seats. The tickets were inexpensive, and it was quite a comfortable 3.5 hour ride to Can Tho with a rest stop along the way.

    We are on sleeping bus 51B.293.94 from Saigon to Cần Thơ July 2, 2022. The bus itself is pretty nice. The sleeping compartment is clean and comfortable. The people at the bus ticket counter was helpful. The driver - however - was extremely rude. Not acceptable at all.

    We were stopped at a a rest stop and since I couldn't hear the announcement very well, I asked the bus driver in Vietnamese much time we still had (anh ơi xe còn đậu ở đây bao lâu nữa ạ?) First he seemed to ignore me, then when I asked again - still very politely - he answered in a very rude/annoyed tone: "thì bây giờ lên chứ còn chờ gì nữa!" (translated: it's time to get on now what are you waiting for!)

    Lots of space and comfy seats. AC good. Reaaaallly long stop to pick up some goods before we even properly exited HCM which added probably 40 mins to journey. We crossed Vietnam - cambodia border with them.
    The bus staff take extra money off you to sort your visa. The visa I needed is 35$ but they kept asking for $45, so I just took my passport back and walked across the border alone in the dark and sorted it myself. Bus staff were a bit grumpy and difficult about it and I got vaguely worried they'd leave without me, as the rest of the bus passengers were in bus/waiting for their visa elsewhere. Made it ok though! They also charged everyone 35 for tourist visas when they are 30 if you just go to the visa desk yourself. Whole journey took an hour or so longer than planned, not really abnormal for SE Asia.
