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.

Nim was the perfect guide, very knowledgeable and speaking very good English. took the speed boat on the way up and the bus on the return. speed boat took us around 1h20 and the bus around 1h30 to get back

I was picked up on time. A small pleasant group and a nice boat trip. Our excursion manager HI was very personable, competent and made sure that nobody was lost.

Great day out, awesome boat trip to the tunnels. Boat trip was about 1:20 and bus trip return was 2hrs

Excellent day with an grear young guide. Shooting the AK47 is a must!
