    Great tour, highly recommended!

    Excellent and comfortable experience! It was such a great guided your, all the points on the list were met, even with some small surprises. Perfectly told vietnamese history in a condensed way with a very inteligent sense of humour – that’s what we like! 😉

    Big Dave, who was our guide, knew exactly where and when to go to avoid long queues and explained everything very well. At the end we received some nice recommendations of where to eat around the city – thx Dave, we used them immediately 😉

    Highly recommended by the two of us

  6. Akari Yajima

    sight seeing tour

    We had a super tour of the tunnels and Delta. Big (handsome) Dave has to be the best tour guide we have had during all of our tours around Vietnam. The knew this tour, he spoke about the history of Vietnam, he was both funny and respectful. Big Dave helped us to have an excellent day. We would want to visit attractions with Big Dave again. Top tour guide!

  7. Haeuser Eike

    10/10 Tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong River Delta

    An amazing tour with big *handsome* Dave to the Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong River Delta. Dave is a very knowledgeable and funny guide. His English is very good and easy to understand, which makes the whole tour very pleasant.

    The tour itself is very nice. It’s a good mix between driving and experiencing. Along the tour you get a meal, but also some sweets and snacks + drinks. Given the high temperature it’s still a good idea to bring some extra water with you.

    If you have any chance to book your Tour with Dave I would definitely recommend it!

  8. Lee Chung

    Small group is the way to go on this tour!

    We had a very good trip with Ben as our guide. It is a long day with a lot of traveling time, so doing the small group tour in the comfortable vehicle was totally the right decision. Also, there are lots of tour groups going around the Chu Chi Tunnels at the same time, so having a small group made it much easier to listen to our guide and experience everything fully. Ben was a wonderful guide and answered all our questions, while creating a friendly and fun vibe that helped all the group have a great time.As a vegetarian, I was impressed with the lunch dishes they prepared for me.

  16. Vivi Nguyen

    Tour to Cu Chi tunnel and Mekong River

    Cu Chi Tunnel:
    Excellent tour on the Cu Chi Tunnels to experience real war site Cu Chi Tunnels and was utterly amazed by the historical significance and engineering of this site. The guided tour, leaded by Ele, provided insightful details about the intricate tunnel system used during the Vietnam War. I highly recommend visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels for a profound and educational journey.

    Mekong River:
    The trip along the Mekong River was great. Learning the life style of river population was very interesting. The tour guide was knowledgeable and spiritous, which made the experience even more captivating. Highly recommended.

  17. Dong Wenjing

    Good experience

    We take a one day tour to chu chu tunnel and mekong river. The tour guide, mr theo is very
    good to explain us about everything. And the acommodation is excellent, we have a
    limousine car and get a drink and lunch. This is a good experince for my family

  18. Jenna Desker

    Awesome tour, great guide, comfy and high quality experience

    Bao is an incredible tour guide – he gave us a really good history lesson about the Vietnam war on the drive to the Cu Chi tunnels and during the tour – as a bit of a history buff, I was surprised how accurate and detailed it was. But don’t worry, it’s not a snooze fest if you’re not into history – Bao was very funny and really made it entertaining. The tunnels were incredible – warning to anyone about 6 feet tall: these tunnels were not made for you! Go down if you dare, but try to keep up with the tunnel guide who will move fast – if you lose them, you may have a hard time – there are lots of turns and intersections! The boat tour and island hopping part was a lot of fun – Bao really knows his stuff and gave us a ton of insight into the cultures of the Mekong Delta people. Really was worth it – I hesitated at the price of the tour (~$50 plus whatever else you buy along the way) but I’m so glad I didn’t cheap out. The van has good AC and comfy seats, and they provide snacks, food, and lots of wet towels throughout the day to keep you comfy. Highly recommended!

  19. Matilda Varlot

    Great day

    Was a great experience, our tour guide Jenny was knowledgeable and funny. It was about
    5-6 hours driving, but the mini bus has AC and comfortable seats.

  20. Mei Yoshino

    Exceeded our expectations

    We really enjoyed our tour and David was awesome tour guide. We did not think we will enjoy it that much after reading some comments how touristy Mekong Delta, however, I am glad we booked it with this agency. The Cu Chi Tunnels are definitely worth visiting and David took us to the part of Mekong Delta where there were no other tourists so we were able to enjoy a long and quiet boat ride as well as visit the local workshops and villages. The tour definitely exceeded our expectations!

  21. Lara Galoustanian

    day tour to Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta

    Easy day trip from HCM if you’re trying to squeeze in 2 of the must-see places: Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta. Paying a little extra for the luxury tour is so worth it as you get better seats on a premium van and go with a smaller group. Our tour guide was Theo and he shared many many bits if Vietnam history along the way and very entertaining too. Great attitude and really took care of us. Highly recommend this.

  22. Patrick Eveleigh

    “Fantastic Experience!

    The tour was extremely good! Our tour guide Jenny was fantastic, very informative and spoke perfect English. Theo is very clued up on all the history and looked after us the entire day! Would definitely recommend!
    Thank you for a great day!”

  23. Tsvetelina Pesheva

    Great tour!

    I had a fantastic experience on the tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging, providing in-depth insight into the historical significance of the areas we visited. The Cu Chi Tunnels are a marvel of ingenuity, and experiencing them firsthand was truly eye-opening. The Mekong Delta was equally impressive, with its vibrant culture and lush landscapes. The excursion was well-organized, with just the right balance of activity and relaxation. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Vietnam’s rich history and natural beauty.

    Great excursion from pick up right outside our hotel door to dropping us off again. Bao our guide is fab, very informative and a lot of fun. Be ready for a packed day but we saw and experienced so much it’s well worth the money. Met some interesting people too, good chats over lunch.
