“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

My husband and I used Water Buffalo tours for a week on our recent first trip to the Mekong Delta. We were looking for a driver to take us on a week long trip from the Cambodian Border to Saigon. We did not want to go on a prescribed 'tourist route' stopping at all of the typical touristy stops and towns. Before we left Khoi, WB owner, worked with us to plan an itinerary to accommodate our interests. Our guide Ha was reliable, knowledgable, flexible and fun. Nothing was too much trouble and the week which included cycling, a home stay, delicious food, private boat trips, floating markets and more, far exceeded our expectations. A fantastic experience organised by a reliable company.
We also used WB Tours to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels. Once again highly recommended.

“Fifth trip to Vietnam, Brilliant with WBT.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Khoi and his team deliver a brilliant tour. It is a trustworthy and honest service that you can rely on, especially when traveling with young children. Each time we return to Vietnam (over six years) we have booked various tours or drivers for our adventures from Sapa to the Mekong. Every time, each part has been flawless, fun and safe. We have sent many friends and family to the company and all have experienced the same attentive care. We now count one of his head guides Tan as one of our good friends, and look forward to returning for yet some more exploration of this terrific country with WBT.

“great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

my wife and I went on a tour from Saigon to Chao Doc. If you are looking to get away from the tourist sites and want a unique experience I highly recomend WB Tours. Our guide was Wayne who was very informative about everything fro the history to the foods and culture of the areas we traveled to. Nam was our driver and he was super cool. We went to Wayne's house and took a ride on scooters around his town which was beautiful. It was the greenest landscape I have ever seen. We ate a seafood lunch on the beach and it was one of the best seafood meals I had ever had. We stopped at a pepper farm, a local market, coconut candy factory, Cao Dai temple, mangrove forest preserve, two floating markets and ate lunch (which was the best thing I ate in Vietnam) at a families house near the preserve. Every spot we stopped at was an amazing experience and we met some really nice people along the way. If I was to ever go back I would definitely use WB tours again. Once we got to Chao Doc, we took a boat up the Mekong to Phnom Penh. If your planning on doing Southern Vietnam and Cambodia I would highly recommend driving from Saigon to Chao Doc. Khoi will help you customize your journey and I promise you will see and experience amazing things.

“Excellent tour - 10/10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Our family of five had a wonderful, excellent value day tour through the Mekong Delta with Water Buffalo Tours. Every promise was delivered upon, every stop living up to expectations. Khoi, our guide, spoke superb English and had many interesting things to tell us. I could not recommend their services more highly.

“Fabulous trips with Water Buffalo tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

We recently spent four days in Ho Chi Minh City as part of a vacation trip in Vietnam. Three of these days were spent in the company of Water Buffalo tours. We did a half day city tour starting with an excellent lunch and then on to all the sites of Ho Chi Minh city. On day two we did a half day tour to the Cu Chi tunnels. We started off again with an excellent lunch and as we did an afternoon trip there were not many people at Cu Chi which was great. These two tours were excellent but the star was certainly the day trip to the Mekong. This was a fantastic trip well away from other tourists which included a visit to a local market, a visit to the home of Khoi's family, a cycle trip, lunch by the sea and of course a boat trip on the Mekong. We were lucky to have Khoi as guide on two of the trips and his younger brother Quane on the Mekong trip but I am sure the other quides they use are equally good.
We choose Water Buffalo tours after reading the very good reviews on Tripadvisor and all we can say is that they proved even better than we hoped. We will certainly use them again whenever we return to Vietnam.
