to start with, i must say i enjoyed this, and would recommend it to every one to try. food was good ,suroundings great, and just an all round pleasant evening, A must do while your in siagon.
A brilliant experience, with lovely staff, fantastic food and entertainment. We had a great evening, the staff were so attentive, we had a fantastic time. The only downside was that the drinks were expensive.
Food was fabulous as was the entertainment. Great night.
Excellent Dinner cruise. Food was fantastic and catered for everybody, nice welcome drink on arrival and on board entertainment was good.
A pleasant evening though perhaps a little expensive in terms of what you can do in Saigon for the same money. The staff were friendly and very attentive and the food was fresh. The views along the river at night are memorable - Mark
We arrived for the Dinner Cruise at 5.30 for a 5.45 departure as stated on the voucher, but we were informed by the staff the boat was not departing until 7.30pm and where the dock is for this cruise ther is nothing to do as it is so far out of town. We threfor had to call a taxi to take us back into town and return us later. WHY DO YOU STATE THE WRONG DEPARTURE TIME !!
When we did eventually start our cruise we had a great time but this was due to the excellent staff,had Viator got the times correct it would have been even better.
I think a credit for another tour in the Viator file is the least you can do to cover our extra taxi expences and the hanging arround for 2 hours
Great evening! I didn't have any issues finding the dock with a taxi. I think having the exact address was helpful in that, so you will want that if you want to avoid the costs of having the transfer from Viator. I was traveling alone and when I was seated, I was placed at a private table. Could be a lonely night. Luckily, I made some friends when boarding at the staff was able to put us together at a table when we asked.The food was great and it was a very pleasant evening!
Prompt pick up from hotel. Good idea to be picked up as quite difficult to find the wharf. Boat was full so was a bit of a fight to get to the buffet, but was a good experience
Good and interesting tour. Drinks on board expensive though!!
Would defenitly do this cruise again. The food was fantastic and the entertainment was also very good. It was a nice surprise to get a free massage along the way which was much appreciated. Our waitress was very friendly and could not be more helpful. We had a great time! I would definetly recommend paying for the pickup service as well, we were taken straight to the boat and there was no confusion. After reading other reviews from people who didn't include this sevice and the confusion they experienced we felt it was worth paying for.
