A bit apprehensive when our guide arrived with the bikes outside our hotel, but we followed him into the traffic and it was fine, then headed out of the city which didn’t take long through these small roads and lanes, and even on the main highway which was deserted except for some cows. we watched some ducks getting loaded onto a motorbike for market, really hard case. ended up at this small place where there were a whole lot of boats, jumped on one and headed out into the farms I guess you could call it. they have their own fenced off place where they catch the fish and Prawns etc. They also sleep there on huts on bamboo.
Went to a new Restaurant on an island of sorts and got served up all this seafood and cold beers. The food was good and the people were all very nice and seemed very pleased to us there.
The sun gave an amazing sunset view and got some great photos then back into the shore and truck ride back to hotel.
Our guide Jack Ho was really great and would recommend anyone to do this, such fun and to get out of the city as well
Had a great tour led by our handsome tour guide Mr. Tony and driver Mr. Nghia. Tony is a knowledgeable men and he can definitely answer to all your questions on Ho Chi Minh or Cu Chi history.. Humorous guy and able to speak English fluently. Will definitely look for him again the next time I and #39;m back.
Very thorough, pleasant
The only reason this doesn’t get 5 stars is because it would be better to go in the morning. It was HOT. That said, our guide was hilarious, very knowledgeable, and entertained us the whole way. These are the temples to see in Vietnam, and this was an excellent trip. Well worth it.
Turned out we were the only two on the tour which was great. Tour took us around the city but the only place we visited was the Citadel and then we were brought back to our hotel. Enjoyed the Cyclo experience, but beware, the walk around the Citadel lasts about an hour.
We had a great day, probably the best in term of astonishment.
The guide came to pick us up at the hotel as explained and traveled up to the first tomb with the rest of the group.
We were not expecting nothing close to what the tombs are: having visited Egypt and the tombs, we were expecting a small room and a quick visit 5-10min each max but the tombs are real palaces were the Emperors wanted to spend their vacations so, a place to enjoy during their life and to, then, spend eternity. The beauty and the size of those tombs are surprising.
The visit at the Martial arts studio was good. Not great at the start, but getting better as it goes with a great ending.
We had a buffet for lunch with a good variety.
The Citadel is a huuuge city. We were happy to have a guide to get some details about all those buildings, otherwise, you don’t understand so much of the dynamic of the old city. Unfortunately, we had the impression to run a little bit: the site is so big that you could easily spend a whole day visiting all the sections, which obviously, we didn’t do with a guide.
Finally, we went to a nice pagoda where we got the chance to be witness of the monk’s prayers. We then returned to the wharf by Dragon boat. Unfortunately, it was raining, so we couldn’t see much of the river or the city.
Special thanks to our guide. He was bilingual, very polite and generous. His explanations were precise and he answered all our questions.
The tour was planned well. We had seen a lot of temples and were ready for a change. Thought the Perfume River Cruise would have been more scenic.
Great tour, good service provided. Host was very friendly and knowledgeable. It would and #39;ve been nice to have some and #34;free time and #34; at the temples but I understand how this would be difficult given the number of people there.
The tour guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. I really enjoyed the trip
This trip was an enjoyable way to see the sights. It and #39;s a big group tour (expect about 30 others with you) so less personal than a small group tour. BUT you get what you pay for, this was excellent value for money, and I recommend it to others
Our tour guide was so much fun he made our tour very enjoyable Well paced and varied activities
Great tour, we saw everything promised. It was a bit hard to understand the tourguide, because his english wasn and #39;t that good. But the tour itself is perfect!
You see a lot of interesting places convienient in one trip. The guide only gives history book like facts. Would have been nicer to hear more about vietnamese culture in general, but all in all this is just a personal optinion
Professional and eye opener
Enjoyed day trip and saw everything promised. Good city tour. Terracotta Warriors were cool! Citadel is a must-see. Thanks
