The van to transport us from place to place was amazing, recliner seats with massage chairs built into them. The tunnels were very good to see and we were provided great information. The visit to the Mekong delta in the afternoon was a relaxing way to end the day.
The best way to tour 2 of Vietnam's highlights in a single day. Our guide, Mr. Cung, was hysterical and very informative. The van was the best transportation I've ever had on a guided tour - extremely nice and comfortable. You learn so much about the American-Vietnam War and seeing and learning about life in the tunnels is very powerful. The lunch and snacks provided were excellent. Would highly recommend!
Our tour guide was amazing. She was knowledgeable, friendly and fun. I learnt a lot about the Vietnam war and the fallout from that war for the people of this beautiful country.
Good transport provided also and a lovely lunch. I can’t recommend this tour enough. Perfect!
Good tour to see both Chi tunnels and Mekong delta. Tour guide Mr. Phu is experienced guide, no problems with arrangement
My mom and I “struggled” over the extra $20pp for this VIP tour and in the end, I think it was a good choice. The group size maxed at 7 but there was only 5 of us that day. The van amenities were great, which included massage captain chairs and WiFi. Having a smaller group meant less waiting and our guide was great to navigate us thru the throngs of other groups at the Tunnels. The afternoon portion was also nice just being a small group as getting on/off boats was quick. Seeing the local life was nice but not exciting.
Our guide’s English was great. He was able to answer all kinds of questions and funny at the same time.
All in all, I’m glad we spent the extra $20pp.
(“Who was with me?” -my mom, but I can’t check either family boxes as I’m not a teen or young child. So I checked “friends”.)
Great tour! Long was a fabulous tour guide, sharing many interesting facts about the two places we visited. The ride was divine in the limo van, with the ability of reclining, and plenty of opportunities for having ice cold water, beer, or soda. I highly recommend this tour for a full day of fun, facts, and food!
Very comfortable transport - our guide Fa was very knowledgeable. Gave us a great history lesson in the morning.
With two locations (Cu Chi and Mekong Delta) you have lot of distance to cover and van is very comfortable to do it in a day. Cu Chi was pretty crowded but we managed to cover the place in time. Lunch option for vegetarians at Cu Chi was great. Lot of fruits to try and eat in Mekong Delta and the timings were pretty comfortable. Since lot of trips (Vans) organized by same company, Guide is your luck. Otherwise trip worth the premium.
The trip was very good. An eye opener for the kids. Our guide from VIP Tours, Mr Sang, was good and caring. The long trip on the Limo-mini van was very comfortable and worth the money spent. The only setback was that we were not picked up and dropped off at the hotel, as promised when we booked the tour.
The day was run very well with a nice lunch. The guide was very informative and made the journey a peasure.
Loved the tour. Our guide Van was very good, she kept us engaged with stories of vietnamese history and culture and made sure we were comfortable. Highly recommend.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and it was only made better by our host Tu. He was genuinely caring, funny and ensured we all had a fabulous day.
Excellent and informative tour. Tu was our tour guide and was awesome. He knew the history and was able to communicate effectively.
I had not much of an idea of what Cu Chi tunnels was when I signed up. First amazing thing was the VIP van. It had massage seats!!! Made my day!
I'm not much of a war fan, but Sally and her amazing stories about the tunnels really captivated me and I had a great time learning about these people and what they created to survive the war. Also, Sally made it super enjoyable with her great sense of humor.
Food was amazing!!! Seriously, super good!
Mekong was fun to see and we were lucky rain stopped when we arrived.
Had an amazing time!!
An excellent guide led tour and a very comfortable bus. A very informative day including a good history of the country.
What a great experience. Our tour guides name was Hung, she had lots of knowledge about Vietnam and the war and also used humour very well in her delivery. The day was very enjoyable and educational. The vehicle was comfortable and exactly as described and as per the photos. It was so interesting to be able to go through the tunnels and they make it easy for people of any fitness levels to choose what option is best for them. The lunch was tasty and there was lots of food. We were lucky and had a great group of people. We did not feel any pressure to tip, however, the row boat ride at the end of the tour had a small tip expected (which was totally fine). I suggest other people ask their tour guide in advance if and where tips are expected on the tour and how much is reasonable.
We got to try local honey and fruits. The tour is well constructed and the timing/ flow is great. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
Lan (Unicorn in Vietnamese apparently) our guide was superb, very informative and funny but without being too intense. There is a fair bit of ‘van time’ being driven to each location but that was fine to have a rest in the heat. The tunnels are a ‘must’ if you are in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh as it is called now but nobody calls it that). Many thanks, unique and unforgetable 👍😊
We really love this full-day tour. It's very educational and entertaining, thanks to Vu, our amazing tour guide. She explained very well, great English, knew when to throw in some fun in between making the whole day was quite entertaining.
The tour itself is great. We intentionally chose this tour that was using Bus both ways, which was much cheaper than the Speed boat and it also gave us plenty of sightseeing opportunity along the way. Best value overall.
The limo van was very comfortable for the ride to the cu chi tunnels and mekong delta. Our guide Mr.Cung made the tour fun and interesting. He gave us many interesting facts and answered any questions we had. It was a very enjoyable day in Vietnam.
We had a family emergency come up that didn't allow us to take part in this trip but after contacting them, they rebooked us for a half day tour that same day which was so unexpected. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable as well. I would recommend them in a heart beat.
We were a group of 6 pax. We didnt expect this kind of VIP service from Lockie, we were really entertained from the start of the tour til the end. The stories of Lockie helped us understand the history in a different perspective and it made our trip more meaningful. I rarely like tours but this was exceptional and highly recommended.
Very good day trip. Van was extremely comfortable. It was interesting to visit the Cu Chi tunnels and learn about the war from the The perspectives of the Vietnamese. Our tour guide Dao was lovely and couldn’t do enough for the group. It is a long day but I’d recommend doing this tour which combines the tunnels in the morning with a trip to the Mekong river in the afternoon.
Thoroughly enjoyable tour, would highly recommend. Our tour guide FA made our experience simply amazing. His knowledge and insight into Vietnam and its history is impressive. Highly recommend requesting FA.
Excellent tour; especially tour guide Sally who was extremely friendly, polite and witty with lots of jokes-but always a true professional-thank you so much Sam-your warmth and charm helped make it a great day!
Yes it is lots of driving-but that is due to it being 2 tours combined into one given their geographical locations! That is not the tour companies fault. So this combined tour is great if you are spending a short time in HCMC. If you have lots of time and don’t care for lots of driving (even being driven in a lovely small bus with big seats with built in massagers!) then perhaps best to do two separate tours. Would definitely recommend this tour!
great day trip for all ages, great tour guide, fantastic ,prompt ,informative ,clean bus ,small group in tour
Our guide Ms. Anbie was excellent, the trip was wonderful. Thank you for a pleasant day. Best sincerely. Ivo (Slovakia)
The whole tour although only for 1 day is one awesome experience. Fun and knowledgeable tour guide. Very comfortable van and great lunch.
Best tour in the area. Our guide Sam was quite knowledgeable and spoke English well. The limo van seats were very cozy and had massagers in them! Lunch was some of the best food we have had in Vietnam. There is also free Wi-Fi in the limo van.
Right from the start, our tour guide made us feel most welcome and was very chatty from the outset. Our tour guide, Pine from Vietnam Adventure Tours was brilliant and very knowledgeable on all things Vietnam. He has a fantastic sense of humour and quickly helped everyone in our small group settle in and feel at home.We knew it was going to be a long day when trying to fit in both the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Mekong Delta boat trips on the same day but the day flew by and we comfortably were able to do both excursions and Pine showed us other stuff along the way also. It did take the full day to complete the trip but a lot of the time was spent sitting in traffic. The traditional Vietnamese buffet lunch was lovely and a good experience also.The tunnels was a fantastic experience and really nice to see so you can picture the horror of what actually took place there during the war so I would totally recommend a visit to the Cu Chi tunnels to everyone who visits Saigon!The trip down the Mekong River was fantastic too. First, you go on a bigger boat out onto the river then you swap over onto a small paddleboat where local people paddle you through a more build up area where people live so it was nice to get a feel of what the locals see and do on a day-to-day basis.Overall, I couldn’t recommend this full day trip enough. These are the two most popular trips in Saigon, this full day trip allows you to do both on the same day, and if you are lucky enough to get Pine as your tour guide you are in for a day you will never forget.Good job Pine, you totally deserve a big pay rise and I couldn’t recommend Vietnam Adventure Tours and Viator enough.Hope this helps,Tony
Cu Chi Tunnels were the highlight of this combined tour. Absolutely fascinating although our guide took us through at a very fast pace. Opportunity to fire off live rounds of an AK47 not to be missed ! Afternoon tour of the Mekong Delta was interesting but a bit overly focused on being taken to factory/retail outlets. Limo was good, much better than a coach particularly given the long drive - which traffic wise was a bit hairy at times.
