WOW! What an unbelievable experience. We got picked up from our hotel then travelled to the cu chi tunnels. Along the way our guide Nim told us about the history of ho chi minh and vietnam! It Was very interesting. The tunnels were an amazing experience. Again Nim had plenty of knowledge and experience for us. We had a beautiful lunch along the saigon river and then went to the mekong delta. The distance between the 2 places wasnt an issue as it gave us chance to have a nap! We went to unicorn island and had honey tea, coconut candy and we travelled down the river on rowing boats. Nim was a fantastic guide and very funny. He answered all of our questions perfectly. We were glad to have paid a bit extra to have a smaller group (there was 7 of us) as it felt more personal and less rushed. We cannot stress enough how good the tour was! Would 100% recommend!
We had a day tour with Kim Travel. We went to the Cu Chi tunnels in the morning and on the Mekong river to Unicorn island in the afternoon. Our guide, called Super Mario, was excellent. His dry sense of humour and vast knowledge about everything we saw really made the trip special. His English was very good even if his singing voice could use some practice. The lunch provided at the tunnels restaurant was great with a wide selection of authentic vietnamese dishes.
The tour was organized really well with a good amount of time spent at each place. I liked how this tour includes both the tunnels and the delta as it is good for travelers with not a lot of time in Saigon. The tour guide Super Mario was extremely informative and very entertaining. The transportation vehicle was also very spacious, clean and comfortable which was awesome. Lunch included was very delicious as well. Would definitely recommend!
Good value for money, guide 'Mike' was informative and jokey, picked up from and to our hotel. We were picked up 10 mins late, and had what I thought was an unnecessary stop on the way, but this turned out to be a good thing, as all other groups arrived early, so when we got there, there was still other groups, but by time we got to the tunnel walking, we were the only ones left, so had the place to ourselves, which was nice.
I arrived in Ho Chi Mihn City with a bad case of food poisoning. I spent two of my three days in the city recovering, so on the last day I decided to book this tour to make the most of my final day in the city. Mario was a great tour guide and I really got a great bang for my buck and time on this tour. There are some parts that feel a little touristy and cheesy, but overall it's a fun experience and I learned a lot.
