My tour guide Kah was above and beyond. His passion for the country and the war was so special to see. He wanted to teach us everything he knew, and was extremely knowledgeable. He made the trip so enjoyable. The boat option is a great way to see the Saigon river and be outside instead of a van. Be aware of bees tho on the boat, dress appropriately. The tunnels were great, a little busy there but our group was only 6 total, so we were able to move around quickly and avoid the huge crowds.

What a great day! The entire team is extremely professional and attentive. The boat ride was great - super fast with great service from the team on board with breakfast and coffee. Our guide was incredibly engaging and did a great job of explaining the history and also his personal and family experiences. We had lunch before heading back. The timing of the morning tour was perfect because the tunnels started getting pretty busy as we were leaving.

What a wonderful evening. Our guide Belle was awesome. We had already seen a lot of the sites on a previous city tour so they arranged a specialised tour to suit our needs. We would not have seen these extra areas without the help of our guides. The cruise was lovely and entertaining, food was delicious. Highly recommend doing this by scooter…. The best way to see Saigon :)

A great experience with the night cyclo trip to the dinner boat! Timothy escorted us on his scooter and we felt very confident in his care. The dinner was excellent and the river cruise very nice.

Amazing trip and the scooter tour before hand was amazing and far beyond what we thought. The guides were amazing and took us to some fantastic places.
