Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Lockie is an amazing guide. He really does everything to make sure you have a good time.
    The tunnels are really fun and interesting (way better than Vihn Moc tunnels in Hue).
    The Mekong row boat is extremely short and preceded by a ton of vendor visits (candy workshop, bee farm, coconut jelly) which are annoying and should be removed from the program. The music performance is BAD. They blare the music and the singing... sounds like a bunch of noise with no beat.
    If it weren't for Lockie and the fantastic group we had, this would have been a 2 star rating at best.

    Truly an amazing day - if I could give this trip more than 5 stars I would!!!

    Thuy was a wonderful guide and photographer to help document the fun. We had great conversations about Vietnam as we rode between activities. The day flowed naturally with the right amount of time for each stop. The bus ride and time to get there is well worth it. Highly highly recommend!

    Bravo to Bao, guide, and Ku, driver, for an exceptionally wonderful opportunity to learn about the Mekong basin area, to eat local fruits, to skim over the water in a boat and kayak, and then cycle through a village. The kayaks and bikes were top-grade and the service by these two men made this adventure extra special. Thank you for all your efforts!

    Great trip, host zhang was excellent and gave us a great tour and provided very good commentary over the day. Well worth doing to see the village and the river along with the different animals that live on the island. We also saw one of the oldest pagoda in the region which was very impressive
    Thank you for the great trip

    My Aunty and I (ladies in our 60s and 70s) had a really amazing experience on the back of vintage Vespas in Saigon on a Sunday night. Our drivers and food guide were exceptional. Nana was both a driver and our food guide. She was very friendly and informative. She showed us step by step how to assemble the Vietnamese spring rolls and pancakes, as she took us to many interesting markets and traditional restaurants that we would never have found on our own.
    It was a 5 star experience. We felt safe and exhilarated at the same time. Fabulous!!!

    The guide Mr. Tran Thanh Truan is a very knowledgeable person who shared nuanced nuggets about Vietnamese history, peoples, culture, population statistics, war history, etc. He astonished us with his sensitivity about Indian dietary restrictions. Although we eat everything and all kinds of meats he made it a point to know our preferences, so he could inform our homestay hosts in advance. He had astounding knowledge of indian culture too both of contemporary india as well as indian cultural influence on Vietnam through the ages. Polite and courteous to a fault too. He had very good knowledge of our destination too and took pains to make us as comfortable as possible often at the cost of his own convenience. I wish him well and would certainly like him to chaperone us on any future visit to Vietnam
