This private tour was great. We were met by our wonderful, friendly guide Thi at our hotel. Travelled to Cu Chi Tunnels in comfortable air conditioned van, with a good safe driver. Guided tour through tunnels. Thi was very informative, explaining lots of things along the way. After tunnels back in van to Mekong part of tour. Got dropped off at side of road to bicyclewe chose to walk into our lunch stop which was a home stay on the Mekong. Plenty of food and very nice. All included except if you wanted a cool drink or beer. After lunch onto a medium size boat for a cruise along the river. Stopped at a coconut lollie making facility to taste and learn how they are made. There was Plenty of chances to purchase souvenirs along the way and lots of toilet stops. Listened to some local singers while eating fresh fruit and drinking tea. Then onto small canoe type boat for a hand row along the water. Very quiet and relaxing. Back on big boat and then back to van. A very full interesting day with wonderful company in our guide Thi. Water bottles were provided throughout the trip. Both the driver and our guide were professional, courteous and helpful throughout the day. I would recommend this tour. Thanks Thi for a wonderful day out.
Great day tour, takes you out of Ho Chi Minh City. Only 4 of us in the group! The tour guide was very informative while visiting the Cu Chi tunnels. It is amazing how the tunnels were constructed and used. If you are able and not too claustrophobic, a crawl down a section of tunnel enlarged for tourists gives a good idea of what it must have been like using them during the war.After a delicious local fresh lunch, we spent some time in dugout on the Mekong Delta, wearing traditional Vietnamese straw hats. Visited several cottage industries - coconut processing plant and honey 'farm', well as little stalls with items for dale. Highly recommended!
It was an amazing experience. They were very flexible and helpful due to our schedule change. It was great! Thank you so much!
Amazing trip and guide, the tunnels were a real eye opener you have to visit them.
Very informational and great to get out of the city. Please be aware that this is a very long day. That should have been apparent to us considering we were going to Cu Chi Tunnels AND Mekong Delta in one day, but we didn't do enough geographical research prior. Our guide, Thao, was incredible and spoke perfect english. She was also really patient with us... I definitely recommend this tour in that it's important to get out of the city and see the country, but be prepared to leave early and get back late.
Thao was an excellent tour guide with very good English and tour knowledge.
Very good experience on the Mekong Delta with excellent lunch. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to get a little dirty if you get into the Cu Chi tunnels in the afternoon.
Overall an excellent tour very reasonably priced.
Long day but worth the effort.
We had a wonderful day with our tour guide Thao. It was really enjoyable to talk to her on our journey in the car. She's very knowledgeable, friendly and has excellent English. My only disappointment was that we didn't have more time to do delta and tunnels on separate days as so much to see at both
This was wonderful trip - highly recommended. It provided great insight into a region we will hope to return to and explore over more time given we had half a day at the Mekong, and half at Cu Chi. That said, we never felt rushed, and all experiences were wonderful. Thao, our travel guide provided detailed information on the local areas and associated histories. The food provided was amazing, the people we met hospitable, and the sights breathtaking. We highly recommend this trip :-
A wonderful day thankyou Thao! The Cu Chi tunnels were amazing and interesting. The Mekong Delta including lunch, boat ride down the delta, coconut candy factory, honey bees, pythons and trek through the local alleys was really fabulous! Highly recommend this tour if you have limited time in Saigon.

This excursion was awesome. The guide that accompanied us on the tour was very knowledgeable and took care to make sure that the excursion was an excursion to remember. We spent 21 days in Vietnam and went on many excursions in Hanoi, Hoi An and Nah Trang but this trip topped them all.
The Cu Chi tunnels was a great experience and really enlightening. However after venturing into the tunnel myself I would say not to do it if you are adverse to enclosed spaces. I am not however the tunnel got the better of me. Give it a go though. There is also an opportunity to shoot a variety of guns. You pay by the bullet and it can be expensive. Once again a must. We shot an AK47.
Onwards to the Mekong Delta. If you have seen the Vietnam war films the boat along the river puts you in that film. This trip is a must and as a private tour the one to one experience cannot be beaten.
