The tour was nothing short of fabulous. Our guide, Mary, spoke perfect English, was very professional, personable, sensitive to our needs/interests and excellent in every way. She took us to a wide variety of places, each offering multiple dishes. The amount of food for us was obscenely excessive ... but we're old and don't eat that much. It was way more walking than we anticipated. We not only ate at locals' places but experienced local life and, of course, local food. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

We made the tour with our guide Tu. He's a very cheerful person, was always open to our questions and shared so many interesting facts about Vietnamese culture with us. I loved how diverse the tour was with its many different activities, food and even some crafts presentations. Maybe the condition of the bicycles could have been a little better (the brakes didn't work properly and the saddles weren't really adjusted), but that's just a minor point. The kayaking part was all the more entertaining. :)

I arrived in Ho Chi Mihn City with a bad case of food poisoning. I spent two of my three days in the city recovering, so on the last day I decided to book this tour to make the most of my final day in the city. Mario was a great tour guide and I really got a great bang for my buck and time on this tour. There are some parts that feel a little touristy and cheesy, but overall it's a fun experience and I learned a lot.

The tour was very well organised and great value for money. Our tour guide Fu speaks very good English and was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time and would certainly go another tour with this company.

We were very lucky to be the last ones before close the place because of the corona virus. We enjoyed every moments.
