We had an amazing guide Quill. He was with us every step of the way, pointing out & explaining everything.. We were picked up by cyclos at our accommodation, it was very interesting and a lot of fun riding in them whist looking at the sights. We then headed to the boat for dinner. It was a beautiful boat, dinner was good & plentiful. The city lights at night are amazing. We were then dropped off by taxi back to our accomodation. Thank you Quill for a fantastic night.

What a wonderful evening. Our guide Belle was awesome. We had already seen a lot of the sites on a previous city tour so they arranged a specialised tour to suit our needs. We would not have seen these extra areas without the help of our guides. The cruise was lovely and entertaining, food was delicious. Highly recommend doing this by scooter…. The best way to see Saigon :)

If you are contemplating what to do with a few hours this is a wonderful experience. Our Tour Guide Belle Nguyen was fabulous! She has so much enthusiasm and you can tell she really loves her work. In review we were picked up at our Airbnb by 2 Cyclos for a tour around the city. It was so relaxing and exciting to see everyone going to and fro. We were greeted many times on our ride with wide smiles and big hellos and it made us feel special. Ms Belle rode her motor and followed closely behind and was in constant contact with us in case we needed anything. After about an hour ride on the cyclos we were dropped off at the pier area for a Dinner Cruise. The Indochina Queen was huge and it was completely full which gives you an idea how popular this tour is. Ms Belle seated us and made sure our food choices were translated to the staff. She then departed and returned after dinner to escort us out to the deck to enjoy the rest of the cruise. She made this tour unforgettable. .
