We had one of our most enjoyable nights with the tour and Trung and Peter were very warm, friendly and helpful for our trip. The cyclo tour was a brilliant experience and an easy and entertaining way to do some sightseeing around the city. The cruise and the dinner were excellent and the food was delicious! We want to give an extra shout out to Trung and Peter who were most helpful in giving us tips and advice as well as being very accommodating. We asked Trung for travel tips and where to eat / visit before our activity and he was very kind in giving us some recommendations. Peter was a lovely tour guide who was very welcoming and friendly, we are happy to say that we have made a friend out of this experience. We would definitely recommend booking this for anyone looking for an enjoyable and lovely experience in Ho Chi Minh!

The tour started with a 30 minute cyclo ride from our hotel down to the flower/cambodia market. Bevis our guide took us through the markets and introduced great local snacks to try. After the market, we were picked up in a car and brought to the cruise site where we were sat down for a 9 course dinner which ended with a 30min cruise by the river. We initially had a small hiccup about our booking but Trung was very nice to have our slot shifted to another day with an upgrade to our food menu and itinerary in general. Overall an eye-opening experience especially with performances on the boat, and we were very lucky that Trung and Bevis were amazing hosts who prioritised our comfort and ensured that we had an amazing night.

We had the most amazing guide named Bruno, who was super friendly and helpful throughout all of the tour. He spoke very good English and made the whole thing to very smoothly. We felt a little silly being cycled around downtown, but it was an experience as well. The dinner on the cruise was nice and so was the views and the entertainment. Our only downside was how the cyclo guys asked for tips in a rude way (expressing how though it had been cycling us around) and when we tipped them they asked for an even bigger tip .. Bruno on the other hand never asked for a tip and deserved it way more.

Even though we had spent a few days and seen the tourist hotspots, this was an amazing - we would say essential- part of seeing HCMC. Our trip included a wonderful dinner at Rice Terrace Restaursnt, which we would never have found, and trips to Skybar, the new VIP neighborhood, Seafood Market and drives through surrounding suburbs. Wow! Strongly recommend.

We had a brilliant evening with our guide Windy. She was very friendly, spoke perfect English and very knowledgeable.
