The Mekong Delta and the Cu Chi Tunnels are two of the most popular day trip destinations from Ho Chi Minh City. Visit both in one day on this tour and enjoy a more personalized experience with a small-group size. Explore the fascinating Cu Chi tunnels and learn how they were used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, then cruise around the islands and villages of the Mekong Delta.
Two top attractions: Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta cruise
Delicious Vietnamese-style lunch at a local restaurant
Small-group tour with a maximum of nine people
Hassle-free pickup and drop-off from your Ho Chi Minh hotel
This is a great trip to see a huge area outside of the city. You'll spend a good amount of time in a nice, air-conditioned van, but payoff is see two major attractions near Siagon. Offers the chance to get out of the city, see rural landscape and get some history along the way! Very helpful & open to coordinating for larger groups

I had booked this tour seeing really good reviews. Upon booking the tour, as per the Viator voucher, this tour was supposed to be operated by "mekong cruises tours", which has a 5* rating in Tripadvisor with 326 reviews, and is ranked as #11 of 112 Boat Tours & Water Sports in Ho Chi Minh City. However, when our driver picked us up, we realized our tour operator had changed, and our tour was conducted by "Vietnam To Travel", which is a much smaller and newer operator with just 24 reviews on Tripadvisor. We did not expect this from Viator, and are highly disappointed with this unprofessionalism. We were never informed of this change.
While the Cu Chi Tunnel part of the tour was good, the Mekong Delta tour was full of tourist traps. I lost count how many shops we visited as part of the tour, where they offered us some items or showed us some things, and then we were asked if we would like to buy some of their products. The actual ride on the canoe in Mekong Delta was just about 10-15 mins, with the rest being stops at various shops. While some might be amused by these "attractions", we were highly disappointed.
One last thing that was absolutely unacceptable. Our meal had a dipping sauce for Ban Xeo and Spring Rolls, which had a dead spider floating in it!!
While the our tour guide was a cheerful fellow who tried to keep us entertained, some of the jokes were quite inappropriate and sexist. I understand Vietnam might not be the most aware country for such issues, but it'd be best if we can avoid such sexist or inappropriate jokes in future. I'll still give him a thumbs up for his efforts to keep us entertained.
We really enjoyed this trip. It was a big say fitting in the two tours however absolutely worth it. Our tour guide Mei was excellent speaking perfect English. The tunnels were very interesting and the Mekong Delta trip lots of fun. Lunch made by a local family was yummy (and at this stage we were being very careful what we were eating), the visits to the local industry were interesting and fit nicely with understanding the area. All in all there were six of us and we all had a great day.
I joined this trip as a solo travel with a bit apprehensive however I have to say that I had an amazing time on this trip. The local tour was brilliant, the scenery is spectacular and I had experienced the local lifestyle. I absolutely loved this trip and highly recommend
HIghly recommended mekong delta and cu chi tunnels in one day experiences,Just total 09 person for super small group ,This is the best choice With limited time left it was great to experience both these attractions in one day. Yes a lot of driving and slightly on the expensive side. However, you pay for what you get and we had no ques and a great guide.Many thanks for your wondeful services
The best choice for full day trip combined mekong delta and cu chi tunnels in one day. We had a great day with our guide Thao. Each place we visited was interesting, and each experience was something different, our guides English was great and our driver was lovely. We were the only ones who booked, so instead of cancelling as some companies do they made it a private tour and we went out in a luxury car. Great tour if youve only got one day as its two tours combined. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS TOUR
Amazing! Highly recommended.
Came back this place always makes me so happy - from meeting ppl to learn more about the history.
Mekong Delta's food is one of the must-try you that you should never missed.
Really love this place and the services.
