based on 484 reviews

The cruise and buffet dinner was excellent. Our tour guide Bruno from Saigon Adventure did an exceptional job. He arranged a taxi for us because we couldn't do the cyclo section because of rain. He stayed with us all through the cruise and gave us information about Saigon and accompanied us back to our hotel. All the extras where at no cost to us. If you do this cruise you won't regret it and ask for Bruno as your guide. He speak very good English and is a delightful young man. He is a definite benefit to Saigon Adventure. Good onya Bruno

Excellent guide, spoke very good English, took us to a number of local districts and explained “locals” life in HCMC. Enjoyed the flower markets, food markets, tiny narrow streets dodging bikes. History of the area etc. Highly recommend, sadly my husband reinjured his ankle in first 5 mins but caught a taxi back to the hotel.

Steven was an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Steven provided many interesting facts throughout the tour and the stops along the way were great. Would definitely recommend booking!

Our 2 guides - Risha and Hang- were knowledgeable about the sites and spoke English well. They also made some changes that made our tour very personal and more interesting.

It was a fun way to see the city. I totally enjoyed the experience!’
