  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was not a cheap trip but it was worth every penny.

    I contacted Roadstour the day before to arrange a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels and I was given different options to make the most of the day.

    We decided to visit Cu Chi Tunnels in the morning and the Mekong Delta in the afternoon.

    We were picked up early and promptly and had a good time at the tunnels stopping at an interesting rice paper making factory and rubber trees on the way (note: there was no pressure to buy). The timing was great as we missed the crowds.

    We then traveled south and had the best time ever. Everything was superbly organised so that the large boat was ready when we were, the horse and cart just magically appeared when we needed it, the small boat was ready when we were. I don’t want to give away too many details because I don’t want to spoil any surprises. This was one of the best days of my life. The food was superb. The experience didn’t feel crowded or touristy. It felt really special and individual. I highly recommend this trip.

    One of the highlights of our holiday

    We did the Cu Chi tunnels and Mekong Delta tour and absolutely loved it.

    The contact with Mr Phung before arrival to arrange times and tour information was perfect and he was very friendly.

    On the tour day our guide and driver picked us up promptly and on time and took us to the Cu Chi tunnels where we had it nearly all to ourselves, we got a chance to walk around and listen to him tell us all of the information about it and really explore the place without the crowds everywhere and he took loads of photographs for us.

    We then headed off to the Mekong Delta and stopped at the Mekong Rest stop for lunch, which consisted of 8 mini courses from a set menu which was included in the cost of the tour, things such as sticky rice balls and elephant ear fish were on the menu and it was all very delicious and enjoyable.

    We then went to the Mekong Delta and our guide chartered a boat which took us to 3 small islands one at a time on the Mekong River, we visited a Coconut plantation and got the chance to climb the tree and pick our own one and then try to open it, we saw how Coconut candy was made, got to taste honey from a beehive and then took a boat trip through the little rivers and a donkey ride.

    It really was a trip jammed full of fantastic experiences but at a perfect pace, we never felt rushed at any stage and our guide was always friendly, patient and fantastic at his job.

    We would thoroughly recommend this tour and would use the company again if back in Saigon.

    Excellent!

    We did the Mekong full day tour and cu chi tunnel half day. I highly recommend you splitting the tour instead of cramming into one. As well this is a private tour company, with the prices they offer its a very very very good price. The tour guides are nothing short of excellence.

    very informative, exchanged travelling experiences. Flexible to what you wanted to do if you wanted to change the program. The car is a SUV very comfortable.

    To be honest I can’t find a fault with this company. Highly recommend this tour company instead of paying double for others like buffalo and les rives and its not even private tour!!

    The best tour even

    We were only in Vietnam for two days so we wanted to make sure we could pack what we wanted to see into a small amount of time. Phung was very flexible with his tour – allowing us to do the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels in one day. Instead of rushing us from one attraction to the other Phung allowed us to do everything at our own pace, thus allowing for an enjoyable atmosphere. Phung was reliable, helpful, nice and full of knowledge about all the places he took us. The tour steered clear of the touristy places in the Mekong Delta which ensured we had a much better time as we weren’t constantly surrounded by people or waiting in lines – and we even got to pick our own coconut from a tree and drink it!! I would definitely recommend Phung and Roadstour for anyone in Ho Chi Minh City who wants to see the sights and hear the local stories behind them.

    Tunnel and Mekong

    Excellent comms with Mr.Phung to arrange the tour and we had Ms Nhung as our tour guide. Her English was very good and she was very accommodating of our 2 year old daughter Sophie which made the trip so much more enjoyable. She knew when to push on and we to slow down. I also felt that where the inevitable tourist trap sellers were she managed to get them to stay away so we weren’t hassled but in general I have to say all were pretty good in this respect. I have been on some tours in other countries and you are just bombarded to buy things. All in all a long day hut very enjoyable and thanks must go to Ms Nhung for keeping us interested and on the go. She had some great stories and very knowledgeable.

    Cu Chi Tunnel & Mekong Delta Tour

    We really enjoyed the tour.  Mr. Phung was a great tour guide.  We got picked up at the airport, then got a call on the driver’s phone from Mr. Phung confirming our tour the next day. 

    We were met in the hotel lobby as indicated and started our day long tour.  Cu Chi Tunnel tour was very informative and since we got an early start we beat the crowds.  Then off to Mekong Delta.  On the way we stopped for lunch.  It was delicious.  Lots of food, we were stuffed. The boat ride was great and we especially enjoyed the visit with Mr. Tan.  He’s such a sweet man.  Thanks for an excellent tour!!

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    What a great tour!  Highly recommended.  Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable with excellent English.  It was a long day but definitely worth it if you’re only in Ho Chi Minh for a short time.  Early start at the tunnels meant we missed most of the large crowds and the heat.  The coconut farmer on the Mekong was such a lovely man and made us feel very welcome! The canoe ride was very relaxing. Thanks for a fantastic and memorable day.
