Mekong Cruises Tours
This full-day private tour from Ho Chi Minh City combines visits to the Cu Chi tunnels and the Mekong Delta. You’ll experience Vietnam’s wartime history as well as modern life in the agricultural region at the mouth of the mighty Mekong River.
Visit Cu Chi Tunnels from Ho Chi Minh City
On this full-day excursion you’ll be picked up at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel in the early morning and travel with your English-speaking guide to the Cu Chi tunnels.
At Cu Chi you’ll see a documentary film about the tunnels and learn how the locals made bamboo traps, rice-paper, and rice-wine. You’ll then have the opportunity to explore the web of underground tunnels dug by Vietnamese resistance fighters.
Take a boat trip in My Tho
After exploring the tunnels, you’ll continue on to My Tho, one of the provinces that comprise the Mekong Delta region. Cruise by boat along the upper Mekong, passing islands named after 4 animals that appear in Buddhist writings: Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix, and Turtle. You’ll have a chance to observe activities of daily life that are so dependent on the river.
Next you’ll take a trip by row boat along the smaller waterways. You’ll experience the agricultural richness of the delta region in the fruit orchards, coconut groves, and bee-keeping farms. Stop to enjoy honey tea, seasonal fruit, fresh coconut candy, and southern Vietnamese folk music.
At the end of our tour, you’ll return Ho Chi Minh City, arriving at your hotel around 18:00.

It was a fantastic trip, the tour guide speaks very good english, she takes care of us all the way, she is punctual, knowledgeable and detailed. The lunch os delicious, we love the boat tour very much! I recommend this to everyone who wanna visit these two places in a day. We are so impressed as they dropped us to the nearest Big C supermarket on the way back for free, this is so impressive as they really do us a favor, by the way, the driver is also very good, the driving skill is incredible! Overall I will rate a five star for this company!

Had booked this tour for my parents after reading the reviews listed here. The owner, Thomas got in touch with me and confirmed the time of the pickup. Thomas was very earnest and when I explained to him that they were coming by themselves, he assured me that he will put his best people on the job. Thomas meant every word of it. From the time of pickup to drop, everything was perfect. It was a private tour with only two of them. Transport was a spacious car. The tour guide, Thao was very understanding and entertained them all the way. She prepared them lunch which was one of their best meals in Ho Chi Minh. Thank you Thao and Thomas. Compliments from Mr &Mrs Anil. Looking forward to personally taking this tour when we visit Vietnam :)

This was wonderful trip - highly recommended. It provided great insight into a region we will hope to return to and explore over more time given we had half a day at the Mekong, and half at Cu Chi. That said, we never felt rushed, and all experiences were wonderful. Thao, our travel guide provided detailed information on the local areas and associated histories. The food provided was amazing, the people we met hospitable, and the sights breathtaking. We highly recommend this trip :-

Best Tour Guide we had in Vietnam.Our tour guide's name was Nhi. She was the best tour guide I've ever had. She was knowledgeable, kind, sweet and thoughtful. She made sure we got to do everything we wanted and was pleasant to have around. After our tour was over, I was sad to see her go. I highly recommend!!

Great private full day experience by private car and guide.Our driver and tour guide Nhi Picked up us at our hotel at 08 AM. Nhi did a great job providing some insights into life in Ho Chi Min and was always pleasant and humorous in her explanations as we made our way to the various stops. The tunnels we very entertaining and was well worth the time. Parts of the Mekong tour were a fun and involved lots of different foods and teas along the way. Some stops were tourist traps like the honey farm and coconut factory, but were good places to pick up gifts for people if needed. Would recommend as a great tour to get outside of the city for a day.Overall a great experience.
