Know More about this tour

We’ll pick you up at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel in the early morning, and you’ll travel with your English-speaking guide to the Cu Chi tunnels. The drive is around 60 km.

At Cu Chi you’ll be shown a documentary film about the tunnels and learn how the locals made bamboo traps, rice-paper and rice-wine. You’ll then have the opportunity to explore the web of underground tunnels dug by Vietnamese resistance fighters.

After exploring the tunnels, we’ll drive to My Tho. This is one of the provinces that comprise the Mekong Delta area. We’ll cruise by boat along the upper Mekong through a region with islands named after 4 animals that appear in Buddhist writings – Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix and Turtle. On this part of the tour you’ll observe some of the activities of regional Vietnamese daily life and appreciate how life here depends on the River.

We’ll then take you on a trip by rowboat along the small waterways. You’ll see the agricultural richness of the delta region in its fruit orchards, coconut groves and bee-keeping farms. We’ll stop so you can enjoy honey tea, seasonal fruit, fresh coconut candy and southern Vietnamese folk music.

At the end of our tour we’ll drive back to Ho Chi Minh City and drop you off at your hotel at around 18:00.

  • This is an amazing tour that if you can you should do it! You get to see Vietnam from driving across it to sailing on the Mekong! You also get to wear an authentic straw hat while sailing down a little river.....Food was great throughout and guides were real good!

  • A brilliantly organised and informative trip. We packed lots of things into a very short time frame. Our private guide was fascinating and so full of information. His English was perfect. A brilliant day and so worth doing.

  • Guide was very informative and took us on tour of tunnels and was very knowledgeable. Mekong was good but not much time spent on boat or canoe through canals too much time was spent going to islands to look a bees etc in the hope of you buying products. Lunch was huge and very nice. Held a huge python snake which was something I did to overcome my fear of snakes. If your wanting to see the Mekong I wouldn't recommend think you probably need a full day to see more but I was limited for time and combined the 2.

  • trip was very good, it is the only trip we found that combines Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta.
    We enjoyed ourselves.

  • This trip did exactly what it said on the tin but not worth the money my family of 4 paid for it. You could do this trip much cheaper by booking locally. The time spent on the bus between HCMC, Cu Chi, My Tho and back to HCMC is around 6 hours. Sadly this is not disclosed on the booking page or we may have thought twice. Didn't help that our driver was late to pick us up and then got lost en route as well. Our guide was nice but her English was often hard to understand. They looked underwhelmed by the tips we gave them, I guess they weren't aware that we had already spent close to 350 on our day out with them!

  • A good opportunity to see the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Mekong Delta in one day if your time is limited.

  • The tour was pleasant, we enjoyed ourselves.

  • Fantastic Private Tour. Really exclusive. We didn't have to squeeze with other people and we had our own private transportation to the different locations. We didn't have to rush and had our own time as it was just me and my wife. We even had a tour guide that was with us the whole way. We were lucky to have Bao who was really friendly and polite. We really recommend this tour for people who would like some exclusiveness without the large and noisy group tour, rushing for the bus or waiting for other people in a group.

  • This was a wonderful tour. It was packed full of activities and included a knowledgeable and attentive tour guide. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Our guide Fong and both cab and taxi drivers were friendly and professional. The itinerary was different from the typical tours too. Can't ask for more.
