We made the tour with our guide Tu. He's a very cheerful person, was always open to our questions and shared so many interesting facts about Vietnamese culture with us. I loved how diverse the tour was with its many different activities, food and even some crafts presentations. Maybe the condition of the bicycles could have been a little better (the brakes didn't work properly and the saddles weren't really adjusted), but that's just a minor point. The kayaking part was all the more entertaining. :)

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.

Excellent in every respect. Ethan the guide was great and everything went According to plan from the pickup to the boat ride, tunnels and lunch. Ethan passed on masses of knowledge and was a great guide. If you only do one trip out of Saigon, do this one with Kim Travel.

It was a really interesting tour, seeing the floating markets was the most interesting activity for me. Our guide Ben told us many interesting stories about life and people in Vietnam and we could ask everything we wanted to know. Tasting all the fruits was amazing!

We were very lucky to be the last ones before close the place because of the corona virus. We enjoyed every moments.
