Attraction details
Owner description: Let us take you on a journey to some of the world's most significant sites. Visit the historical Cu Chi tunnels, the laidback backwaters of the lush Mekong Delta and the UNESCO-listed Can Gio Biosphere Reserve. We offer authentic experiences in areas that can only be accessed via the region's scenic waterways. Cruise between verdant rice paddies and mirror-like pools along the tributaries and canals of the river of nine dragons - the Mekong Delta. Step back into Vietnam's not-too-distant past at the Cu Chi Tunnels to experience wartime life. Cruise mangrove forests off Vietnam's southern coastline and learn about the diverse flora and fauna of captivating Can Gio. Fall into the local rhythm and take time to enjoy the here and now. Connect with Vietnam's landscapes, warm people and perhaps, even yourself.

My wife and I did the small group Mekong tour with Les Rives today.

When booking I thought the tour was a little expensive but was persuaded by doing the tour by boat.

We were picked at our District 1 hotel a little early and transferred to their dock in a very comfortable van.

At the dock we met Hang (tour guide), the rest of her team for the day and 12 fellow travellers.

Start to finish this was an amazing day. The care and knowledge of Hang and her team was absolutely first class and more than worth the cost.

We visited a number of places as per the itinerary and learnt a great deal about the lives of people in the Mekong Delta. Never once did we see another tourist which made everything more comfortable, no crowds.

Lunch was provided at a local school and we had a chance to interact with the kids and learn something first hand about education of the children here in Vietnam.

We didn't visit some of the 'big' name locations in the Delta but we certainly did get a up close look at real life in the area. We would not have changed a thing.

We have rarely seen a more professional and thoughtful tour in all of our travels. Special thanks to Hang and her crew who took extremely good care of a group of people from all around the world. The boat was modern and very comfortable and we had no trouble (I am in my mid 60's) doing all of the activities.

All of their advertising is spot on and they delivered.

Les Rive and Hang are first class.

A little pricey but worth it to speed up the Saigon River and bypass all the traffic heading out from Saigon to see the tunnels. Our guide was good, friendly and helpful. We went on the tour that left Saigon about 7am and were speeding up the river just after 8am. The size of the group for this tour was about 14 - all lovely people. Although we arrived at the tunnel site just after 9.15am, the place was already very busy. Touring the tunnels took about 2.5 hours and just before we boarded the boat back to Saigon lunch was served in a river side restaurant. I found the boat ride just as interesting as the tour seeing locals fish and work. I would definitely recommend this tour.
