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.

We avoid regimented tours and trips but this is in a different category. From the punctual pickup from our District 1 hotel to good breakfast and lunch provided on the trip this really was a day we would not have missed. A real opportunity to experience the real life and people of the Mekong Delta.

Our guides were amusing, informative and charming throughout the day.

IT was a privilege to experience the day - worth every penny.

“Best way to see south vietnam”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

The best way to see the cu chi tunnels and Mekong delta. Picked us up from the hotel in the morning and took us to the boat. Tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Breakfast on the boat and I would recommend the coffee. We went on both tours and would recommend them both. Lunch was fantastic and after each tour they dropped us at our hotel.

On the Mekong tour in particular we saw village life, tried some of the local foods and met local people. Everyone was very friendly and the tour guide was excellent throughout.

Although a little dearer than some tours these ones are definately worth the money.

“Avoiding the bus-genius!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I am just after coming back from the Saigon river express tour and I would highly recommend it. The city forms the backdrop to the river cruise and is beautiful to see. While on water you get to see the disparity of wealth in the city. The tour guide is knowledgable, friendly and speaks good english. Food and drink is served while on board and is included in the price you pay. The warm breeze is lovely and has to beat a 2.5 hour bus journey any day. The cu chi tunnels are well worth the visit -it gives a good insight into war! I would say spend the money-its worth it!

“Very well run company”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Went up by boat with Saigon River cruises to see how the locals adapted to being involved in war under siege from enormous forces was sensational. 230 kilometres of tunnels dug by this very resilient,intelligent,tough and intelligent people trying to protect themselves. Trapdoors, multiple layers of interconnecting tunnels, kitchens, water wells, booby traps.
A walk-crawl through a section of these tunnels is a must do to get a faint picture of what conditions must have been like for them.
The boat ride, service and food on board is very good. Our guide Tree was not only informative but also has a great personality and fantastic sense of humour with a laugh that is contagious.
The company picked me up from the hotel as advised and took me to the boat terminal and delivered me back to the hotel very efficiently.
