  • Very enjoyable and interesting night out. Originally dinner was supposed to be on a small riverboat, but the boat needed repairing so they had dinner at a different restaurant after the show.

  • If you don't understand Vietnamese this show would be a little underwhelming. Its good for the theatrics but not completely enjoyable for 40 mins.

  • The pickup service was timely and we were provided with great seats. Dinner was especially nice and there was plenty to eat and we were allowed to eat at our own pace. Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone in Ho Chi Minh City.

  • If you have time, this is a wonderful show to see and the dinner was super. Well worth it

  • The show was well produced and some of the puppets we was trying to work out how they controlled them in the water. I can see why the puppet show has received rewards. The show was carried out in Vietnamese. It would of been nice to have something to tell you a bit of the story you are watching in English. The show was worth a big tick in the box on doing when here.
    After the show was has a nice meal. The meal was set but covered what most people would like to have, with the local dishes. We had a couple of drinks with the meal which wasnt covered in the price. But enjoyed the restaurant and the food. So with both the puppet show and meal. A great evening entertainment. Would be happy to do it again

  • This is an amazing show the work that goes into the puppet show,is first class well done to all.

  • Dinner was delicious. Puppet show was a little disappointing.

  • really nice show then taken to a lovely restaurant for supper the guide we had was excellent a really nice night

  • This was a great tour. Our tour guide - En picked us up in a nice vehicle and drove us to the puppet show, helped us find our seats and then took us to the dinner at The Chateau where we had a multi course dinner and then back to the hotel. Only thing I thought was strange was that no drink was included for the dinner - not even bottled water. If not interested in the dinner, I would book your own tickets, take a cab to and from your hotel. Puppet show is very different and certainly something to see.
