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.
Tunnels and Mekong delta tour were wonderful ! The vip van was very nice with cold ac and drinks plugs for charging phones. The lunch was a roadside tourist stop food was ok just would prefer on vip tour a better lunch option. Tour guide Tony was super !
Our guide was 5. He was absolutely incredible, knowledgeable, fun, accommodating and made this experience such a wonderful and worth while day. I would recommend this trip to anyone. Thank you :-
First off, I'd like to say that we had the most amazing guide. Vu was a super awesome guide! She's knowledgeable, upbeat and so funny!The trip was well planned. Chu Chi tunnels are a work of art and a must visit. After the tunnels we went to the Mekong delta where we experienced the local culture, food, fruits, and local industries. The van was very comfortable. All in all, a day well spent!A big shout out to Vu once again! All the best!
fantastic tour?? highly recommended. will go again
Our tour guide was called Ken. He was very knowledgeable, fun, patient, and friendly. We would highly recommend this tour! The combination of Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta was perfect! Ken also made it a lot of fun for our family of six including a 7 and 11 year old.
Long day and well worth it! So much packed into it! Great as a small tour as it gives you plenty of opportunities to raise questions you have got. A must if you are on tight time schedule.
What can I say about this tour to Cu Chi and the Mekong Delta. Awesome awesome awesome experience. Absolutely request Mr. Foo... hes entertaining, knowledgeable, professional, and super friendly. He answered al of our questions, spoke English very well, and told stories of his own personal experiences. It made the trip even more worth it.
The tour began by picking me up in a van limo with 6 others in Saigon, and the history lesson began right away. I learned so much today, and is a different perspective than shown in the history books. Seeing the propaganda videos and learning what took place from the locals perspective, was extraordinary. The trip into the tunnels, even for a short walk, was a freaky experience. I cant even begin to imagine what life was like back then. While the tunnels were expanded a bit, they were stiil difficult to duck and walk through. After this experience, we headed over to the Mekong Delta to have a really good lunch after a short boat ride. There we were able to try a variety of local foods, which were all very tasty. From there, we took a small boat where we had two little older ladies rowing for us that took us through the the mangroves type of area to head to try tea and several local treats made by the honey of the bees on their farm. The treats were yummy! After all of this we headed back to Saigon which took about a hour and a half. Overall, what an amazing experience! Definitely book this tour and Mr. Foo!
Had a amazing, enjoyed, wonderful trip with our friendly tour guide MS.Anbie.
Many Place and activity covered in 1 full day. amazing!!
VIP bus also nice as per picture shown.
Time management good
Most destinations were interesting to visit
Good lunch provided
PERFECT EXPERIENCE FROM THE START TO FINISH.
Very interesting and great guide thanks.
This tour was amazing. The transportation is just as pictured- There's wifi and there are usb charging porst on board for charging your devices.
Our guide Nia i hope i got that right was truly the best. He even helped with the negotiations/bargaining when we were buying souvenirs from the locals that didn't speak English. My highlight of the tour was the shooting range- its not everyday that you get to fire a M30 machine gun:
The lunch provided at the rest stop was particularly delicious. Its a set menu but you can order additional stuff at a cost outside of what the tour already covered, of course. The river ride after on the Mekong was very peaceful. You might come across some of the locals that live on their houseboats on your way to the village.
Within the village you will stop at a coconut candy shop. The coconut ice cream and the coconut crackers were pretty good.
I'd definitely do this again.
Very well organised tour with a very good English speaking guide. Enjoyed it thoroughly with lunch at a great Vietnamese restaurant. Would definitely advise it.
We had a very nice guide named Ken who entertained us in his witty way. wr also informed us about the story etc. we were excited about him. the tour is highly recommended! Thanks to the luxurious bus, you could relax while driving. were always supplied with fresh drinks and the food was very good quality. to make cu chi and mekong in one day the tour is perfect! One day cu chi and one day mekong we would not recommend. on this tour you have both in one and the tours are more efficient;) our tip: book now;)
Had a wonderful day LONG DAY at that.The car was wonderful and our driver spoke great English and explained lots of different places as we went along. Wasn't the best start to our holiday as I was about to Cancel this Day trip due to having upset stomach but good old Gastro stop help me through and glad I went. I did have a few hours sleep in car which probably saved me.
Went to Cu Chi tunnels first then headed for lunch which was yummy then onto Mekong Delta. We stopped at the Coconut Candy farm, Bee Farm and where you try all their local produce.
Got to ride on their small boat along the Mekong.
The best guide, Nina! Very good comfort in the minibus. The guide explained very well and were nice, had humor and talked good English. It is a long drive but we didnt have much time so we had to do it on the same day and this was perfect. They picked us up right on time and droved safely in the traffic.
Our tour guide , Kent did a fantastic job. He kept us well informed and made us laugh. His English was good and very accommodating. We liked that the group was small so we were able to interact with the other guests. I would recommend to book the two tours on one day. There is not much to see on the Mekong River but the visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels was great.
Handy tips: we brought some spare clothes with us as recommended on the website, which we did not need. However, we were glad that we had our hats and applied sun lotion before hand. It was very hot on the day of our tour. If you are not fond of seafood, best to bring some sandwiches for lunch to keep you going.
Had an amazing day trip. Kent our guide did an excellent job informing us on route and at the sites.
It's the one tour you need to do.
This tour is something that I have wanted to do for a very long time. Having finally managed to get to Vietnam, I looked for a tour that felt right and this was it. The luxury vehicle very comfortable arrived on time and the guide, who spoke pretty good English was very amenable. We picked up the other two couples 6 people in total, the vehicle can only hold 7 and set off. Our guide gave us a background to the history of Vietnam and the now infamous Vietnam war. Before we arrived at the Cu Chi tunnels we visited a charity that supports the victims of Agent Orange, it felt a little commercial, but in reality these guys need help and they do produce some lovely stuff to buy.
So, onto the tunnels, please do not make the mistake thinking that you will be seeing the tunnels on your own, this is a popular tourist attraction, so there are many groups there. The tour of the tunnels was well managed and you get the opportunity of going down a tunnel an enlarged version, so for those with claustrophobia it may not be a problem, a hidey hole and also to fire various weaponry extra cost, AK47, M16 or a heavy duty machine gun - all very noisy and scary !! - A very interesting and worthwhile part of the trip.
After the tunnels you head off to the Mekong Delta, stopping for a good lunch on the way. Again the guide gives you the background to the river, however on the back of the tunnels this was a less exciting aspect of the tour. You get on a boat and visit a number of places including a small chocolate maker, opportunity to sample 'snake wine', however the best aspect of the tour was going on a small rowing boat, up one of the backwaters, with the sun shining through some of the high vegetation, it made for some great photos.
In summary, we really enjoyed the tour, being a small group meant you had the opportunity to meet people and share your experiences, the quality of the guide and the vehicle made it all the better.
Great trip very knowledgeable guide Lily we had a great experience.
A great trip and a good way to see both in one day. It was a long day but worth it. The transport was comfortable and equivalent to business class on aeroplane (well almost) . The flinch provided was good quality and there was plenty of it. Cu Chi tunnels were interesting and a must do when in HCM.
