After reading a lot of very positive reviews about this company I booked the one day Mekong Delta trip and the half day Cu Chi Tunnels trip for myself and my older parents.
On both of these trips we had the same guide, Jason. Well, what can I say, they did not let us down. The first trip to the Mekong Delta is a must if like us you are only in Saigon for a few days. It is advertised as a private tour and that is certainly what it is. Every place we visited, it was just the three of us and Jason. We saw temples, eat with local villagers, cruised across the Mekong, visited a local furniture maker, a local market, travelled along little subsidiary rivers of the Mekong and what was the highlight of the day, walking through the paddy fields. It was just how I imagined it to be. Breathtaking!
The second trip to the Cu Cui Tunnels was another great trip. The tunnel complex is amazing and it certainly gave me more of better insight into the Vietnam war and how ingenious the Vietnamese people were with what was available to them. The methods of survival and the way they lived is incredible and Jason's explanation of it all was fascinating.
This now brings me on to Jason, our guide. I have travelled this world extensively and I have never met a nicer and more knowledgable guide. His english is superb and his local and international knowledge led us into conversations about not just Vietnam but of other world events. He is easy going and adaptable. When my parents decided not to take the scooter ride through the paddy fields but just to walk. It was not a problem at all and Jason arranged for the vehicle to pick us up at the end of the walk. We found out that this travel company is quite new and I would throughly recommend them to anyone visiting Saigon. Khoi, Jason is a credit to your company and I look forward to booking many more trips with you in the future when I return to Saigon. Thank you for a great two days.
ONE TIP........walk through the paddy fields instead of the scooter ride. Its so peaceful and you can take it all in along with some wonderful photos......
