my wife and I booked this trip last minute but I have to say it was the best day we had. From pick up to drop off our guide was both interesting and informative . The speed boat was brilliant and the lunch was more like a banquet . The trip by river is a must .

We were so impressed with everything about this tour. Seasoned travellers, we rarely sign up for such group excursions. This one, however, is really worth doing and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Ho Chi Min it was a highlight of our city trip. Incredibly well organised, the Les Rives team made our excursion seamless, fun and informative. The tunnels are a must see, but splurge and invest in this amazing experience!

We really enjoyed the tour, the guide was excellent and knowledgeable. This tour arrives at the tunnels before the busses and big crowds arrive so you have more time to take everything in. We would thoroughly recommend this tour.

A great way to reach the Cu Chi Tunnels from Ho Chi Minh City! We were a small group and were well taken care of with snack and soft drinks on the boat, lovely lunch at the river and great guide. I would definately reccomend traveling by boat! And the tunnels is a must see when visiting Ho Chi Minh.

Compared to other tours I did, this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. I admit, it costs more, but I felt the extra money was well worth it. We started out from a beautiful garden where the boat was moored. We were with a small group and an excellent guide, who pointed out a lot of things along the way during the boat ride such as birds and plants of interest. His attitude during the excursion at the Cu Chi tunnels was objective, professional and respectful of the emotions the site evoked. We had a lovely lunch by the water and made the most of our trip on the water on the way back.

I expected the tour to be a little 'touristy' but it was actually really nicely done. The boat trip there and back is a must if you like to see life on the river. Lunch was delicious and they catered really well for veggies. Tam was fantastic. V informative and interesting guide. An excellent balance of talking and just allowing us to take in the sights . He even recommended 3 restaurants near our hotel which were also excellent. A small group of 8 and Tam expertly steered us away from any parts which had large groups. Cu Chi tunnels itself was also v nicely presented. The inevitable souvenir shops inside but the displays and tunnels were v interesting and well presented.
