Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Upon afternoon pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, you’re transferred to the pier to board a luxury steel boat with a wooden interior. Settle aboard the vessel for a 2-hour tour up the Saigon River that takes you around Thanh Da Island.

    Your guide points out riverfront villas in one of Saigon’s most upscale neighborhoods before passing by the rural heart of Ho Chi Minh City where rice fields and palm trees line the riverbank. Continuing downstream, you’ll see the city’s rapid urban development and impressive skyline. View Dragon Wharf, the Majestic Hotel, the Customs House and Rainbow Bridge as the sun sets.

    You’re served beer, wine and soft drinks to accompany complimentary snacks before your boat tour ends in the heart of Saigon with drop-off at your hotel.

    Review collected in partnership with this hotel
    I did this trip with Ngan as the guide on 1/1/2020. While she was sweet, the trip itself left much to be desired. It was nothing short of a long boat ride with little to no context about the neighborhoods the boat went through. More could have been done and said the various

    Dear Richard, We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the trip. Unfortunately, we were not made aware about your complaints during the trip so that we could have taken necessary action. Most of our customers love to be on the water for 2 hours and enjoy the sights of Saigon while zipping on some drinks. Our guide does usually give some explanations about the different sights. We will review if we need to give some more information. Despite the boat trip we hope you had a great time in Vietnam! Kind regards, Saigon Boat Company Management

    We really enjoyed our cruise around the river. Bonus we were lucky enough to have the boat and all the wine to ourselves. If you are looking for something chill and fun to do, escape the hear and sip on some wine. Then we went out to dinner in D1. I recommend.

    Jenny took us on a nice boat tour on the Saigon river with good explanations. Her english is excellent. By chance we were the only passengers so we had a private tour. If you want to be 2 hours out of the beep beep of the saigon motorcycles take the tour!

    Did this on our last evening in Vietnam - a perfect ending to the trip! Ngan was an excellent guide both in the car ride to the pier and along the boat ride, more than I was expecting. Light snacks and unlimited beer/wine available. We only had 7 people on the ride when the boat
