Our tour guide was Loc , very experienced very friendly ! There wasn’t ine question of us unanswered. Excellent knowledge of history! He even got us in places not other tourists go . We had an amazing day ! Highly recommend the tour but most of all the leader !!
Very good trip, my partner and I were the only 2 booked on which was great having a private tour. Our guide was lovely, very knowledgable and spoke amazing English. The cu chi tunnels and Mekong delta were both a must see in Vietnam and the lunch was authentic food and very tasty.
The tour itself was really great, we got to see everything we wanted in the short amount of time we had available in Saigon. The lunch we included was a great way to taste a variety of traditional foods and catered to vegetarians/vegans and meat eaters. A really great experience. Unfortunately, with our particular tour group, although it was small, we ended up waiting around 40 minutes for the other people to even be ready to start the tour, which was really annoying, especially because we had gotten up early and made sure we were on time. It almost got to a point where we didn't think the tour guide should be so accommodating and we were tempted to leave the tour, if it weren't for the fact that we couldn't be refunded. It set us up for a day of rushing all the attractions we saw, especially when those same people kept us behind at most places when it was time to go.
Overall, the attractions we got to see were great and insightful, however, it would be good for the tour company to set some hard guidelines for people who are running late only because of their own ignorance.
A very interesting and thought provoking day visiting the Cu Chi tunnels. Lots of opportunity to learn the history and test the tunnels for yourselfquite unnerving. The delta and ride through the mangroves was good fun. A nice day out. Our guide was very lively and talkative and her English was good. Lunch was provided and it was delicious, freshly cooked and a nice variety of Vietnamese dishes to try.
The experience was ok. I like that they packaged two familiar tourist destination as only a handful offers this type and that's affordable. We also like the fact that the tourist guide is a veteran since she knows the people in the tourist spots. She also gave us sneak peaks and free fruits. However, we were rushing due to us having started late. Our residence was not a hotel but an AirBnb, however it would have been better if tour guide gave allowance in time for locating and communicating with us 30mins to 1 hr before the scheduled trip. It would also be nice if tour guide was owning up with her miscommunication and not blaming us for the delay as we are not familiar with the area. Scheduled departure was 830am based on itinerary, we left around 845am but she kept on telling us that we were late and we need to rush. They should schedule this around 730 pick up Finally, points of improvement would be to have the guide have a louder and clearer voice. We were just three and we still had a hard time hearing her voice when she was explaining. Remember, we were going to tourist hotspots, meaning place is packed. Overall, experience of the places was nice. No need to get the more expensive ones as the places are just the same.
Great experience touring the Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta with our friendly guide Mr Long. I would definitely recommend this if you are in Ho Chi Minh for a limited time and would like to see both places in one day.
