    Although it's prohibited in some countries for protecting animals, it's possible in here Vietnam. You get the bamboo stick with a piece of meat hanging on the string, by paying some VND. Crocodile comes nearby and suddenly snaps your meat. Me and my son had so many fun for this activity. I have intention to visit this theme park only to enjoy the Crocodile Kingdom.

    This was a really fun day out. We got there right on 9 when it opens and only really needed to spend a few hours tops there. Would really recommend arriving at 9 as there were no lines for anything so we did all the slides by 11. At 12 when we left it was already getting way more crowded and a bit too busy to be as enjoyable but you can still fit in heaps by then. Loved the lazy river but it could be a bit too fast passed for really young children.

    We had an informative and delicious trip with Su and Jun, packed with lots of fun. We were picked up at our hotel and started our scooter trip. We felt absolutely safe during the rides. For food we had Vietnamese pancake and pizza, Obama noodles, Seafood, coconut icecream and a caramel pudding. All served at authentic Vietnamese stops, were we also saw a lot of locals. On top of that, we also got to see the flower market and how locals live in ex-American-soldier apartments. Su and Jun gave us a lot information about the food, were able to answer all our questions and it was a pleasure to chat with them. The whole evening was rather meeting friends than going on a guided tour. Thanks for the unforgettable event, Su and Jun!

    Definitely the highlight of our 2-day trip to Saigon. Picked a tour "Saigon unseen adventure". For the first time we've experienced tour around the city on motorbikes. In our opinion, motorbike is the most convenient, exciting and distinctive way of exploring Ho Chi Minh city, especially with such knowledgeable and friendly guides like Quan and Nick. Seen and heard a lot of interesting things about non-touristic side of city life during 3-4 hour-tour that we would probably be unable to experience otherwise. Thank you guys for the great idea and its' professional and conpetent realization. Recommend to everyone who has limited time for sightseeing and wants to see a little bit more than classical tourist attractions.

    The night street food bike tour is a good way to experience Ho Chi Minh City culture. All guides can speak good and understandable English. Cici is my tour guide and she has mindfully checked on what I have tried before deciding where to bring me the nicest street food. She also shared a lot of information on the old apartment, the mindset and lifestyle of different generations and social status. I am very pleased with this tour. One thing that I need to take note of is that because I booked from klook, and it offers instant confirmation, the tour agent/the guide will only contact you on the day instead of the day before. Thank you again Cici for this memorable trip.

    My partner & I did the tour with the lovely Kim & Hoa. From the moment we met the girls they were so delightful & enthusiastic, and their English was great. The tour apart from being some of the most delicious food we tried in Ho Chi Minh it was also a great way to see the city and the girls made us feel very safe amongst the hectic traffic. I would highly recommend this tour for any visitors ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We took a 6 hour trip to Cu Chi by speed boat. Ride to harbour was nice and from the beginning our guide was really professional. Speedboat was the best way to reach our destination without traffic and we get chance to see riverside life.
    Cu chi tunnels were intresting and our guide was amazing. He tells us great stories about Vietnam-life and history.
    We really recommend this trip to everyone. Big thanks to our guide Thi (litte skinny guy ;))

    This tour was fantastic! The flexibility and friendliness of the guide I had really made this special. For example I was suffering from a vicious hangover and was in poor condition at the start of the tour when Tom came to pick me up. He was really thoughtful, gifted me water and helped me to a pharmacy for meds too, asked if I wanted to do the tour at night instead of morning and generally made sure I was going to be ok. That level of genuine care (and a serving of special vietnamese coffee too) really perked me up and made a horrible wake up into a amazing experience.
    The sights themselves were really worth going to as well, and was refreshing to get out of district 1. I also suggested to go to a museum that tom didn't know of and we added that to the tour as well, so extra compliments for that! Yummy food, coffee, and interesting sights are all found here.

    Ultimately I highly recommend this tour to other travellers and would love to thank Tom again for being such a wonderful guide and person to me.

    We did a day trip to Ku Chi Tunnel. Our guide was Daisy. A very bubbly character and a warm hearted person. She has an indepth knowledge about the culture of Vietnam. So if you traveling to Ho Chi Minh. Travel with Daisy.

    The Saigon Craft Beer Tour was an unforgettable experience! Riding a Vintage Vespa was something we've never done before and so of course we were hesitant at first -- but all those worries disappeared all thanks to our guide Vy and the Vespa drivers of this tour company.

    Each craft beer location we visited was so special and we could not recommend this tour enough!

    We arranged a private night food tour for 2 people. Just three scooters (us and the photographer). The photographer took some great photos (leaving us to relax and enjoy the evening) and they were available about 24 hours later. It was an incredible and fascinating way not only to sample local food, experience local eating places but also to see the city. Being on scooter we could zip down small alleys as well as along the main roads. We went through many districts in the city and stopped several times to have some very tasty food. Sitting on the pavement on those very, very low stools and eating with the locals was great fun! At one place we could try our hand at creating our own rice paper rolls with a selection of meats and vegetables.

    The Extravaganza team were engaging, knowledgeable, professional and very safety aware. The whole evening, in fact, did not resemble a tour but was like spending a few hours having a good evening out with friends. Without hesitation, we recommend this experience as an essential part of any visit to Saigon.
