The 20th of July we had a cyclo tour in Ho Chi Minh City. Our guide was Gem. She not only spoke very good English but the information was objectif and very intersting. She gold us Thongviset you can't find in books. The riksja drivers listened very good to her and we saw all the interesting points of the city and had great remakes from her how to buy goods in the Ben Thanh Market. My wife and I realy want to thank Gem and the riksja drivers For an onforgettable day in Ho Chi Minh City

Miss Tham was our guide for the tour. She was very knowledgable and spoke good English and very friendly with a good sense of humour. The tour was managed well and kept to time. The driver was experienced and safe trip. Well done to Miss Tham for the great day out in Vietnam.

It is with a little trepidation that I write this review, because this one - day tour from Saigon to the Mekong was right in so many ways. It just needed to attend to a few areas and could have been better. Here are my suggestions.

To begin with, our guide didn’t introduce himself to the group nor did he sport a name badge – no one asked him any questions, probably because they didn’t know his name. We should have been provided with a small bottle of water – pretty standard for a day tour, I’d think. A welcome drink like this is certainly inexpensive (after all we paid $50 USD each for the tour) and water should have been provided. Other tours we have taken have provided participants with a simple paper handout with a small map; brief history and a couple of Vietnamese words of explanation. This would have made the whole trip make sense. Our guide briefly checked if there were any allergies whilst we were travelling (almost two hours) by bus down to My Tho. No one confessed this but I watched one woman refuse to eat anything. Our guide offered nothing as a replacement, mainly because he was nowhere to be seen during the meal – probably out the back eating his Vietnamese food.

Apart from the points mentioned above, the day was enjoyable and when I inquired about who our guide worked for he rattled off a number of companies – Peak, Buffalo, Intrepid, Urban Adventures and Gecko. Confusing and not really clear. A little like our one-day trip to the Mekong.

We went with Tham on this one day tour booked through intrepid. Despite heavy rain the day was a great success and Tham's enthusiasm and English were excellent and much appreciated :)
