Owner description: Let us take you on a journey to some of the world's most significant sites. Visit the historical Cu Chi tunnels, the laidback backwaters of the lush Mekong Delta and the UNESCO-listed Can Gio Biosphere Reserve. We offer authentic experiences in areas that can only be accessed via the region's scenic waterways. Cruise between verdant rice paddies and mirror-like pools along the tributaries and canals of the river of nine dragons - the Mekong Delta. Step back into Vietnam's not-too-distant past at the Cu Chi Tunnels to experience wartime life. Cruise mangrove forests off Vietnam's southern coastline and learn about the diverse flora and fauna of captivating Can Gio. Fall into the local rhythm and take time to enjoy the here and now. Connect with Vietnam's landscapes, warm people and perhaps, even yourself.

A great day enjoying the river and the delta area. Excellent guides with good knowledge. Light breakfast served and local lunch. Tum and doctor Love made for a good trip. Small amount of walking thru villages and markets.

“Amazing tunnel experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great trip with great people. loved the boat and the guided tour of the tunnel complex. Going through the tunnels themselves was an experience I will not forget. The staff and crew on our boat were great and the service was excellent. Just as an example I noticed the lady looking after the food service changed the drinks on our tray about five times during the trip just to make sure everything was always cold and even as we were heading into shore was still asking us all if we would like a cold drink to take with us. One of the absolute highlights of our two weeks in Vietnam.

“Travel to Cu Chi tunnels in style and comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

This is a recommended half day trip if you are in Ho Chi Minh city. The trip to the tunnels was very interesting, insightful and educational. The mode of transport there was awesome . Fast speed boat with beautiful and serene scenery from the Saigon River. Feasted with tropical fruits and various drinks along the 1.5 hour ride to the tunnels. The guide spoke clear good English. The journey back was just as excellent as we were hungry and was served with delicious Vietnamese cuisine! Highly recommend this tour if you don't mind paying USD80 vs a bus tour which is probably one third the price .

“Great tour on the saigon river express”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I heard about this service through a friend. I have taken the bus to the tunnels more than a few times...its awful. The destination is ok, and the bus ride is horrible. The saigon river express leaves the tunnels as 'ok' but makes the journey one of the most exciting parts of any trip to vietnam. I have lived there for many years and this is the best tourist option in town. highly recommend. Good for a couple, family, or business. I could not recommend the staff any higher
