Picking up at the hotel worked without any problems. We were only a small group of five people, which made the whole thing very pleasant. Furthermore, we had a great guide (Yen), who knew his way around and was able to answer all sorts of questions (also about the country and its people). He was also considerate if you wanted to stay somewhere two minutes longer. In addition, we also had the best driver in Vietnam, anyone who has had experience there knows that it can also be very difficult. The tour went absolutely according to plan, exhausting but very interesting. Absolutely to recommend.

great tour

We did the tour in a small group which turned out to be the best. We were the first at Cu Chi Tunnels and had plenty of time to see everything. When we after a good 2 hours. You could see what it was like if you drove on later. Everything was full of buses. Everything was also well organized in the Mekong Delta and we were able to learn a lot. This was also due to our great guide. The driver brought us safely back to the hotel in the evening. I highly recommend the small group day tour. 5 Stars
