We wanted to experience a traditional puppet show. We loved the work that went into the show by the puppetiers and musician. We left feeling very pleased. We learned new things and were entertained. Were the accommodations 5 star, no but that was part of the charm. Loved it!!

This was a fantastic experience. Starting with the cyclo tour which was amazing - the only thing I will say is that they expect a tip which there is absolutely nothing wrong with this however it would have been good if the tour company could have made recommendations to an appropriate amount. Worrying about this affected my ultimate enjoyment of the trip. The puppet show was amazing and dinner on the boat once again fantastic. Six of us and we all had an amazing time, definitely well worth doing

Everything well well except the local guide was a little late picking us up. As a result, the water puppet show started when we arrive at the theatre. It is well worth watching the show and admiring at the dexterity of the puppet masters, who revealed themselves at the end of the show, are young and enthusiastic. Although we did not understand the singing and dialogue, they were very well synchronised with the movements of the puppets. Following the show, we were transported to the pier for our dinner cruise by cyclo. The cyclo ride is very enjoyable as it offers an evening tour of the city weaving in and out of the traffic. The cruise ship is large and stable. We did not feel that we were on a boat all at. The fixed food menu was good and they are able to cater for food preferences with advance notice. At the end of the crusie, we were all visibly relaxed and were transported back to the hotel. Overall, a very good experience.

I had great fun during this tour. My husband and I had an individual assigned to us for the evening. Thank you, Viator.

The water puppet show was great however we missed a lot of scenes from the show because our guide was 30 minutes late. We were asked to wait at 5:45 in our hotel lobby but she came at 6:15. The cyclo ride was a good experience, it gave us a city tour of Ho Chi Minh at night. Dinner was so so.

Puppet show is very traditional and the cyclo ride was amazing through Saigon traffic. The dinner river cruise was fun as well.

We were taken on a cyclo ride from the hotel to the water puppet theatre and loved the experience. The show was something different and also enjoyable. But we were not very impressed with the dinner cruise. We thought the food was just average and there wasnt enough entertainment on board.

Our Tour guide was amazing!She was so lovely and spoke good English. The tour was awesome the only thing that might need to be clarified is the cylo ride. Both myself and mum were hounded by our drivers to give them tips( which is fine) but then our guide also paid as it was included in the tour
