We had a great day out. Early start and a little bit of driving from Saigon, but if you only have one day, this is a great way to go! We were picked up from our hotel with no delay and were comfortably driven first to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Getting early to the tunnels meant we avoided large crowds and delays, so it is definitely worth getting up early to get there first. We then made our way to the river Mekong, where we crossed the river and had a set lunch which was very nice. After this, we went on a canoe down a smaller branch from the Mekong which was very relaxing. Our next stop was a different island in the river where we were able to have some local fruits (included in price). Our tour guide Bao was excellent and provided great information about Vietnam. He was able to explain any questions we had. Our driver Mr Tang also made sure we have a safe and comfortable drive. All round great day out!
We can’t thank Kim enough and our fantastic happy driver. From the moment we met them we had the most fantastic full fun packed day. We went on 2 different boats, a horse and carriage, tried different fruits, honey and coconut candy and we enjoyed a delicious lunch by the water and We got to the tunnels first Thing in the morning before other people so no queuing and it felt like a private tour which was amazing. Kim was full of great information and great facts, and he really inspired us with his passion for all the places we went to. We really enjoyed Kim’s company and we can’t recommend him enough to you all.
I highly recommend this tour. It was such a wonderful day. The driver Hii was very sweet and Phong the guide looked after me extremely well. He continuously made sure everything was okay, took special photos for/of me and spoke great English. It was really nice to have a more personalised experience with a private tour, as I received ongoing attention/could hear all information well and I saw some hidden gems, which larger groups would miss out on. Thank you, especially Phong! I have forever memories!
Great tour, great guide, nice variety of war history and local culture. Our guide (Bao), was very knowledgable and friendly. The places we visited were all very interesting and all the people there were friendly. We (my wife and grown children) all had a great time.
Our guide was very nice, friendly and well prepared. We enjoyed the day: the tour, all the interesting explanations on life in Vietnam and the food. I highly recommend it. Everything was perfect! A big thank you to Mr Phong, our great guide!
