“Mekong Delta day trip”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Booked this tour with Viator and it was run by the excellent Urban adventures. We were on the small group tour and picked up outside the Saigon Opera House at 8am. The bus was a good size for our party of 15 guests. Our Guide was a young Vietnamese girl (who was excellent at her job!) and she told us about various things on our 2 hour trip to the Delta.
After a short coffee stop we continued our journey for about another 20 minutes or so to a small port on the river. We then visited 2 Islands the first of which were we were given samples of local exotic fruits and entertained by a local traditional music group. After this we visited another island which had a bee farm as well as a small cottage industry making all things out of coconuts. In fairness my initial thoughts were they would be the usual tourist trap but no pressure was put on anyone to buy. Lunch was served nearby and we were treated to the infamous elephant ear fish as well as spring rolls. The fish is a really ugly looking thing but tasted very nice. We then took a motorised tuk tuk ride off the beaten path and this was great fun. Then we were onto the small boats into the small inlets of the Meekong. This was fascinating and an excellent way to see the beauty of this region. Once we had done this we took the boat back to the port and took the long journey back to HCM. Overall an excellent day which was great value for money and highly recommended.

“Ho Chi MInh Urban Adventures”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

If you are looking for a value-for-money introduction to HCM this is it. Gem my guide was very organised and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. We had an air-conditioned car and driver who would drop us off at the different places we were visiting and then after a call from Gem he would arrive to pick us up. I was collected on time and dropped off at the end of the tour. It was pleasant sitting in an air-conditioned car and being able to observe and ask questions about what we were passing - with Gem filling in the details around the day-to-day life.

“Mekong in a day”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Our tour guide Linda was very knowledgable and gave us a good overview of the Mekong. Really enjoyed the local food and produce, as well as a fun tuk tuk ride around one of the islands. Good small tour group size and attentive guide - good way to see it in a day!

“Great day trip to the Mekong”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We had limited time in HCMC, this was a great day tour for insight into lifestyle and scenery in Mekong delta. we saw a few local enterprises (honey, coconut candy) and enjoyed lunch in the village after a tuk tuk ride. Linda, our guide, was very approachable and knowledgeable. Highly recommended if time is short! (Food and transport included)

“The Tunnels at Cu Chi”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

As part of Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures, we were exposed to the Tunnels at Cu Chi by our guide Tham. She ensured that we had an educational and adventurous trip from Ho Chi Minh City to the Tunnels at Cu Chi, including stops along the way to experience rural life, and an opportunity to make rice paper. We thought she was caring, educational and kind to us, while venturing through historic places in her country. She was also instrumental in aiding us to attend other Urban Adventures in the Mekong Delta, and Hanoi, despite the fact that she was not the tour leader. We sincerely appreciated her assistance and genuine concern for us. She recommended a trip for us to Ha Long Bay, again through Urban Adventures, which was a delightful an educational experience, led by our guide Thanh. Thanh was a great tour guide as well, and we owe our great experience to Tham for setting up these short trips , despite the fact that she was not the direct guide.
