Amazing tours, worth every cent
Review of: Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta private tour full day

We had two full days with our English speaking guide Field and we couldn’t have had a better time. He catered to our wishes to go to the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Cao Dai temple in one day and made the entire day so worth it. The Mekong delta was intimate and he took us to places that weren’t full of tourists, a truly genuine experience. Our family of 7 ranged from age 21 to 81, he kept the pace appropriate while giving us valuable information on the bus rides to make the time go by faster. All in all, we had a wonderful experience and I would recommend these tours to anyone. Vietnam is gorgeous and rich in history, and these tours highlight every aspect! Thanks so much to Field for making us comfortable in a country half way across the world!

Khoa (“Vince”) is Best Guide!
Review of: Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta private tour full day
A private tour is the best way to experience Vietnam, and “Vince” was a fantastic guide! Vince was knowledgeable and fun! A private guide along with your own drive in an air-conditioned van was really inexpensive! The Cu Chi tunnels are fascinating to say the least. The Mekong river is also really fun, and you get to experience some of the life in rural Vietnam. The lunch included with the tour is good as well! Excellent tour company.

Cu Chi and Mekong Delta with Thanh
Thanh was a wonderful tour guide. His introduction to the local culture of Vietnam was outstanding. He was able to share history on the country and provide information that we did not know. I appreciated the map he brought along to point out exactly where we were going and other places in Vietnam. We had an amazing time spending the day with him.

An excellent day with an excellent guide!
Review of: Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta private tour full day
Big thanks to Thanh who made our day a very memorable one. Thanh was a pleasure to deal with from the start of our tour to the end. We had forgotten we had the tour booked and Thanh patiently waited for an hour and a half while we rushed around getting ourselves organised. Thanh was very informative, spoke fantastic English and had a great sense of humour! Can highly recommend this tour with Thanh to anyway looking for a fun way to learn and experience Vietnamese culture and history.

Cu Chi Tunnel and Mekong Delta Full day Tour

My tour guide , Vincent Le from Roadstour Vietnam was really friendly , knowledgeable and nice to us.
The full day tour was interactive and we did not experience a single moment of dullness.
He provided good explanation and made the entire experience a memorable one.
I would recommend Roadstour Vietnam as the travel company and Vincent as the tour guide for all first time and seasoned traveler to Vietnam.

Cuchi Tunnel and Mekong Delta Full Day Tour
We were 14 people and the company assigned us a 29 seater bus which made the trip very comfortable. Our guide, Dung, was excellent. She spoke good English and was very knowledgeable about the sites we were visiting. Her high energy never flagged all throughout the trip which in turn kept everyone in high spirits.
Before going to the Cuchi tunnels, we first made a stop at a government run lacquer factory which employs disabled people. Despite it being a tourist trap, the lacquer making process was very interesting and the products they produced were quite beautiful, though a bit pricey. Most of the merchandise here cannot be found on the markets in the city so we ended up buying quite a lot.
Our next stop was the Cuchi tunnels. This is a very interesting tour and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Saigon. You will gain a lot of insight on how the Americans lost the Vietnam War. After the Cuchi tunnels we proceeded to the Mekong Rest Stop where we had lunch. The Mekong Rest Stop is a very nice restaurant and the lunch was excellent, which was a pleasant surprise since lunch was included in the tour package.
Our last stop was the Mekong Delta. This part of the tour was disappointing because before and after going on a sampan boat ride along the river, we had to make a lot of tourist trap stops, like drinking tea on a honey making place, where we were given free tea but also presented with their different bee products. After partaking of the free tea, some of us were forced to buy their products out of embarrassment.
As for the sampan boat ride along the delta, it would have been a more pleasant ride if the river was better maintained by the locals. It was not pleasant rowing along the river with plastic bottles and styrofoam containers floating around. But this is not the tour operator’s fault.
All in all it was a good day trip, and for US$45 was very reasonable with the excellent lunch included. I can recommend this trip to anyone and if you are planning to hire this operator, please request for Dung, our excellent guide.
