  • Nice tour.

  • This was an excellent tour for a great price. I especially enjoyed the sampan ride on the canal, but I also enjoyed a delicious lunch, watching the coconut candy being made, ad drinking the honey tea. Our guide, Hendry, was informative, helpful, always willing to answer questions, and best of all, had a great sense of humor!

  • A very good tour. Excellent guide Tommy but I don't like being called darling all the time. Speaks good English and was very knowledgeable. Good safe driver with very clean air conditioned van with WiFi. Nice lunch and a great variety of attractions on this great value for money tour.

  • The drive from our hotel to the departure point at the river was about 1,5 hours with one short stop for a comfort break. On the way back we drove straight through so do not drink too much while on the river to make sure your bladder can last. Our trip was on the same day as Independence Day so the crowds were huge and the traffic on the way there was very bad. Our driver took a few back roads.
    We were surprised that our guide had to queue for tickets for a boat and that this had not been pre-arranged and pre-booked. We spent about half an hour in the blazing heat waiting for him to obtain the tickets.This is a big tourist attraction and everything is geared towards the tourist and encouraging the tourist to spend money. Wear solid shoes to make it easy to hop on and off the various boats and to get onto the river banks: no heels or loose fitting shoes. Some of us in our group did not like the idea of getting into a buggy which is pulled by a small horse, to get to the lunch point. There was no mention of this in the description of this tour. The lunch was good with ample food. Bear in mind you have to pay for your own drinks. We were home before 5pm and overall it was a worthwhile excursion.

  • I had to wait for the guide for more than an hour. He told me this was because they had problems with other clients. So this is actually not the company's fault, but they could have called me to explain it. The tour itself was good with nice food.

  • It was a wonderful trip, more than what we expected. Tour guide David Hung is very helpful and funny. Cannot wait to do another trip when family come over. Worth the trip, it is on a must to do list!

  • Must be part of a tour. There are many tricks to sort out if you are an individual traveler. Our highlight from our time at HCM City

  • The tour wasn't anything special and, if I had to do it again, I'd skip it. We were shuffled from one place to another, many of them trying to hawk their goods (honey, candy, paintings). The guide was very nice. Lunch was seafood.

  • This was a good tour. Lots of different stops and things to see. In and out of boats and rowboats, horse and cart ride, stopped for fruit while listening to traditional singers. Lunch consisted of whole fish, pancakes, sticky rice ball, soup springrolls,green vegies and watermelon to finish off. Then to a bee farm, not much there but had a taste on Honey bee tea and saw a Honey comb full of bees. You could taste some pure honey if you were game to stick your finger into a bunch of bees! Saw how coconut Candy is made, had a taste and could buy some as well. On the way back we stopped off at a temple with a giant Buddha and the Sleeping Goddess. Oh yes, almost forgot that you could hold a python and try some snake drink as well if you so desired. Packed a lot in and was dropped back at hotel around 4.45.

  • Wonderful tour, good guide and a diverse experience. Highly recommended
