We were picked up from hotel and taken to water puppet show which we really enjoyed.The cyclo ride to the boat was an eye opener with traffic being extremely busy and found they expected to be tipped.The meal on the boat trip provided good choices and we were escorted back to the hotel by our guide she was great.Would recommend this tour as a fun night out

The local tour guide, Nien, came promptly at 6pm; we were bought to the water puppet show via a flag down cab. The show was entirely conversed in Vietnam, making it impossible to understand the story. Cyclo ride follows the show, and it and #39;s definitely a dangerous experience. Love the dinner cruise!

Even though the puppet show was not in English it was still entertaining. The cyclo ride was fun, but I felt guilty when the man had to peddle me over a long steep bridge to the boat where the cruise was. There were two of us but they served us enough food for five. It just kept on coming and was delicious. We had a great time. U should try it!

Everything well well except the local guide was a little late picking us up. As a result, the water puppet show started when we arrive at the theatre. It is well worth watching the show and admiring at the dexterity of the puppet masters, who revealed themselves at the end of the show, are young and enthusiastic. Although we did not understand the singing and dialogue, they were very well synchronised with the movements of the puppets. Following the show, we were transported to the pier for our dinner cruise by cyclo. The cyclo ride is very enjoyable as it offers an evening tour of the city weaving in and out of the traffic. The cruise ship is large and stable. We did not feel that we were on a boat all at. The fixed food menu was good and they are able to cater for food preferences with advance notice. At the end of the crusie, we were all visibly relaxed and were transported back to the hotel. Overall, a very good experience.
