The previous review I read on Viator about this 2 hour river boat cruise was spot on! This a a great little excursion for smaller children. Our kids had a great time on the boat and really enjoyed the captain and guide. Both of them were kind, gentle and took interest in the kids. The floating river pagoda was interesting and a highlight of the trip. Our children ages 5 and 7 were both very interested in what the guide had to say about the differences between the Chinese and Vietnamese dragons and why the Happy Buddha is happy! She was able to make the tour interesting for them as well on their level. The island park we visited after the pagoda was well put together and allowed the children to have a run about. I would recommend this tour without hesitation.
The tour was good especially if yo have small children. We took our 4 and 2 year old on the morning tour which was great as it was not as hot as the afternoon. The floating cathedral was great to see. It would have been nice to continue one direction on the river and see more instead of backtracking to the other destination. That said, I must say the staff were very friendly the captain of the boat was great. I highly recommend it for families looking to do a quick sightseeing trip in Ho Chi Minh City
