Honestly, review is regarding customer service for the dinner cruise. - we had ordered and paid for the dinner cruise but unfortunately the dates we picked were on the New Year. The cruise was not running these dates. Contacted buy email - telephone regarding this. Customer service was very helpful and we sorted the rebooking. Looking forward to the dinner cruise in a couple of weeks...
We were seated at a corner table with gorgeous views all around. It’s a traditional boat with a nice ambience, just perfect for catching the evening breeze while enjoying a seven-course dinner. Very friendly and courteous staff. Highly recommended.
Embark on a dinner cruise on the Saigon River during your stay in Ho Chi Minh City. See the city at night — a beauty to behold when draped in shimmering lights against the night sky. Crossing the heart of the bustling city, the river cruise offers a tranquil escape aboard a wooden yacht. Enjoy dinner accompanied by traditional musical and dance performances.
Although tiring, this was a very interesting tour made exceptional by our guide Hurricane Honey who kept the momentum up with his humour and constant positive vibes. The contents of the tour were very well thought out and we experienced more than we expected..from a sampan ride to boat rides, pretty decent lunch and fortunately, good weather. All went according to time and we returned to our hotel happy that we made the trip.
We enjoyed this tour which was a full day. I have done this tour previously in 2007, but it was a half day only. Our tour guide was Typhoon Honey, a very jovial male guide who used humour throughout the day and was informative. He was very good to us.
Overall it was good value for money. We drove from HCMC (1,5 hours) to a Buddhist Temple and then onto our boat to begin the tour. We had a comfortable van with air conditioning and was comfortable for the 8 of us onboard, but if all seats were occupied it would have been a bit cramped (which is normal). Our group made the day worthwhile and it was great to meet other similar minded people. Once we arrived at Unicorn Is (in the middle of the Mekong River) we learnt about candy making. We then ventured around the corner for the mandatory cultural activity ie: local singers & dancers who approach every group and perform (whether wanted or not) and then seeking a donation. We walked through the local village and at one point were advised that we'd have an island tour in two golf buggies. Off we went, but quite literally, the carts drove up one road for about 2 minutes, did a U-turn and went back to where we came from.......that was it !! Hilarious, but a complete waste of time obviously. There was a long boat trip within a mekong canal on the island....quite literally you could smell the mud. Not a bad experience, worth it, but not the highlight I was expecting. Lunch was good and there was too much food for us to get through.
As stated, overall it is worth doing and the cost justifies what you receive. Overall there could be a little bit more polish, but hey, you get to see a bit of the real Vietnam in the South and it was still memorable.

We had a nice time with other tourists who came from different countries. Our guide Fully speaks decent English and he was always willing to learn. We expect more war memory but bit surprised by all the sales of Mekong area's products. For our generation Mekong Delta is a place of sad sentiment and it was only our hope to pray for all the souls both Vietnamese, Americans and others.

Good for First timers
, Dec 2019
The tour was very good. Well organized, came off without long delays and our guide was from the area so had a little gossip about the family lives. (If you get Danny tip him). For me as a very experienced traveler it was not what I was looking for. We got a little taste of everything but I wanted a long drink from the Mekong!
Well worth the money spent and Asiana really does take care of it's guests.
