  • This was wonderful trip - highly recommended. It provided great insight into a region we will hope to return to and explore over more time given we had half a day at the Mekong, and half at Cu Chi. That said, we never felt rushed, and all experiences were wonderful. Thao, our travel guide provided detailed information on the local areas and associated histories. The food provided was amazing, the people we met hospitable, and the sights breathtaking. We highly recommend this trip :-

  • A wonderful day thankyou Thao! The Cu Chi tunnels were amazing and interesting. The Mekong Delta including lunch, boat ride down the delta, coconut candy factory, honey bees, pythons and trek through the local alleys was really fabulous! Highly recommend this tour if you have limited time in Saigon.

  • This excursion was awesome. The guide that accompanied us on the tour was very knowledgeable and took care to make sure that the excursion was an excursion to remember. We spent 21 days in Vietnam and went on many excursions in Hanoi, Hoi An and Nah Trang but this trip topped them all.
    The Cu Chi tunnels was a great experience and really enlightening. However after venturing into the tunnel myself I would say not to do it if you are adverse to enclosed spaces. I am not however the tunnel got the better of me. Give it a go though. There is also an opportunity to shoot a variety of guns. You pay by the bullet and it can be expensive. Once again a must. We shot an AK47.
    Onwards to the Mekong Delta. If you have seen the Vietnam war films the boat along the river puts you in that film. This trip is a must and as a private tour the one to one experience cannot be beaten.

  • This trip was fantastic! Highly entertaining and educational. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable. She easily answered the thousands of questions my husband and I asked. It was very interesting to see local life away from the tourists. The tunnels and history of the war was fascinating!

  • The Cu Chi tunnels are a must do experience whilst staying on n Ho Chi Minh City. Our guide was punctual, friendly and very knowledgable. The Mekong Delta is a very long drive and we felt the day trip was actually too long - if you were interested in doing both perhaps break it into two half day tours and do them both in the morning for cooler temperatures and to see the floating markets which we missed out on as we visiting the Mekong in the Afternoon.

  • We had an amazing time!! Thankyou Thao
    The tour started on time, we were given great tips (including a lesson on crossing roads in Vietnam). We we brought to the Mekong delta, fed throughout the day (we were never hungry), and we visited the tunnels in the afternoon. We were impressed!!! Many thanks

  • The private tour was really good value for money! Thao was a really good, she was really informative looking after us throughout the day and answering questions. In the morning we saw the local life of the Mekong delta followed by tunnels. Great fun packed day!!

  • If you don't have a to

  • Thao was our tour guide for the day.
    She made us comfortable throughout the trip. She managed the tour very well such that we avoided the crowd and maximised our time. She made us feel at home and tried diff foods!
    We admired her passionate sharing of facts about the Cuchi tunnels. Excellent!

  • The Mekong delta tour gives a good idea of how locals live, including food, agrculture and transportation. We arrived early and our guide Thao worked extra to avoid the tourist crowd, which was nice. Before reaching the Cu Chi tunnels we stopped at a beautiful buddhist temple and learnt about some rituals. At the Cu Chi tunnels we also skipped tourist crowds very nice moves, Thao! and got extensive explanations about the tunnels and war time history. The only downside of the tour is the long commuting between the sites, not always on good roads. Both guide and driver were great, fully recommend them.
