Our tour guide was awesome. This trip was one of my favorite activities on my trip to Vietnam. Going by river was better than going by bus. I would highly recommend this tour - Kathy T.

My brother and sis in law did this tour and reccommended I do it too. It might be more expensive then the bus tours but worth every penny! They catered for my veg diet and the speed boat cruise was an experience. We got there before the bus loads of tourists so I enjoyed the trip.. Bokk for the 6.30am or morning slot.

Definitely worth taking the boat and avoiding the slightly later arrival time of the coaches. Everything from pick up to drop off was really well organised. Snacks and drinks on the boat, nice lunch before leaving and choice of drop off in town when returning. Guide was great too.

Wow! What a tour.everything that i always wanted to see i got to see on this tour. The speed boat cruise,crawling in the tunnels and shooting an AK 47 was all highlights and I'll do it again. Our guide Ajay and his crew was great and always provided us with fresh fruit,water and a great lunch.

It was great to take the speedboat. Very pleasant and met very nice people. The tour itself is quite fascinating, but it does depend on the quality of your guide's English. On the boatI, our guide was excellent. gave a 5 to our experience once we got to Cu Chi was poor about a 2. His name was Wen and he was extremely difficult to understand him. I have taught English as a Second Language and have a good ear for accents, so be assured that he was not the guide to get. Linda from Los Angeles
