"Great personalised tour"

We've travelled with our two small kids and got a personalised tour to suit us. Very well organised, quick responds to my queries! Cu Chi tour was very interesting. You can see which traps vietcong used. You can go through the tunnels and see other things. Also you can shoot from weapons, that is pretty expensive. The boat trip also through the small channels was our highlight. However, the cycling trip was also very nice as well as the food at the end of the tour. Highly recommend the package.

"Piece of history, surprisingly good"

It was in a must see during our visit to Vietnam and it did not disappoint. We had a great English speaking guide who knew the history quite well. We got to see the tunnels, living conditions, shot Military weapons Ak M16 etc but you do have to pay extra for this. You get a feel for how life and war was , it was very humid which gave you more idea of the hell it must have been. Really good tour to see floating markets and Mekong delta lifestyle. It's focused on local things. Really non touristic tour and manageable nice group. Our guide a.k.a Luka was the best. Spoke really good english and really proud and well knowledge about a lot of small and interesting things about delta Mekong. Tour bus we had great , air conditioning , reclining seats, wifi.

"Cu Chi tunnels and Floating Market. Birds and Bikes!"

Our tour was incredible and so much fun! We shared a lot of laughs. Khoa our guide was so welcoming and friendly. He was great at sharing his knowledge and took us to some fascinating places away from the usual Mekong trail. We felt like we got a snap shot of real delta life. The food was amazing and we loved the homestay. When we had to say goodbye, it genuinely felt sad and like we were saying goodbye to friends. This was one of the funnest things we did in Vietnam!

"Southern Break 6 days is a must"

The cu chi tunnels is amazing structure and hard to believe how VC people can eat , live and fight in the small places like this . very interesting. The tour to Mekong delta is the best tour ever. Got an early morning boat tour to two floating markets. Our guide Huy was excellent. Great knowledge base culturally as well as botanical knowledge. He really was an awesome guide. Very well thought out tour with us seeing both a local smaller market and the largest floating market. Food was brilliant. Thought of all our needs considering that we had a tired vegetarian 13 year old and a physically challenged 70 year old. The half day was perfect for our group needs. If my husband and I were to come back we'd definitely do an overnight plus tour with this group. The boat captain made this wonderful bouquet for my daughter from coconut leaves and mango flowers which made her day

"A very good way to discover the delta and the floating markets"

We took the longer Cu Chi and floating markets tour which comprises two markets next to can tho, a noodle workshop, and meandering through many small canals. Our guide Khoa was fluent in English, very helpful, sociable, and knowledgeable. We also really enjoyed the breakfast and other food provided. There was heavy rain which reduced our enjoyment of the first market, but not much one can do about it. We would recommend Hieu and Khoa.
