    My parents had a wonderful time with the puppet show and cyclo ride and river cruise. The boat was clean and everything was organized. They were amazed at how hardworking the people are especially the cyclo drivers, despite of their age. They only note that the food in their dinner cruise were a bit limited and they had to share portions of the meal. However, overall they had a fantastic night.

What To Expect

See Saigon in a different light after the sun goes down with a joy ride on a traditional Vietnamese Cyclo, tickets to a popular Water Puppet Show, and finally an elegant dinner cruise. Your tour starts with a pick up from your hotel in District 1. If your hotel is not in District 1, meet up with the rest of the tour group at the meet up location. Hop into the traditional Cyclo then head to the Golden Dragon Theater to enjoy the Water Puppet Show. Using the water as the stage, water puppetry is a unique art form considered as one of the most important facets of Vietnamese cutlure. Complemented by Vietnamese instruments, the Water Puppet Show is a fantastic glimpse into the performing arts culture of Vietnam. After the show, transfer to the cruise boarding point for your evening dinner cruise. Aboard the cruise ship, enjoy a traditional Vietnamese set meal while enjoying the breathtaking views of the city. See the glimmering lights on the reflections on the water as you cruise along Saigon river - a fantastic way to end your evening.

    The water puppet show was amazing! Really enjoyed it. The cyclo ride was good; the guide was very friendly and responsible! However, the river cruise dinner was a bit lousy.. The waiters and waitresses were very unfriendly. Also, it was written that the cruise would end at 9.30pm but we already got back to the pier by 9 and the lights in some sections of the cruise were turned off. Really couldn't enjoy our dinner :(

    A little pricey for the tour but it was still worthwhile as the puppet show was great and dinner was delicious with the night scenery on the cruise. Overall, highly recommended.

    My Mom have never seen such puppet shows and it was worth the cost! Hassle free and we enjoyed the Saigon City nigjt tour

    Road is full with motorbikes and cars. Riding a cyclo in this busy road seems not safe and I couldn't enjoy it at all. In overall, puppet show was well made but personally I felt bored after 25 minutes. Dinner is a Vietnam style, and it was just okay. Tour guide was nice.

    It was an amazing cultural experience. Riding a cyclo to the theater was spectacular. Our tour guide from TNK was so accommodating and ensure that we got the satisfaction we truly deserve. The cruise dinner over Saigon River was superb. Great performance. Great food. Great people! It was a great way to conclude our holiday in Vietnam. All thanks to the wonderful staff and tour guides of TNK Travel. Incredible services!

    First of all , I have tell the person that 4 of us wNt to changed the cyclo ride to an taxi instead he agreed in the morning and Been told by him to wait at the lobby between 5.30-5.45pm , but the tour guide arrival with no car no taxi by 6.05pm. Then this tour guide said he is calling an taxi at 6.10pm but unfortunately that is no taxi arrival then he said walk further out we follow him Walk about 10 min but with 2 elderly with me it’s hard to walk too fast. Then finally at 6.30pm that is an taxi. But we reach late at 6.45pm. Then show already started. After that follow by the dinner at the cruise...... the tour guide do not know where we seat then we walk up and down then the stair is very narrow and our table it’s actually downstair. Already tell them we have 2 old elderly. But they did not do anything. The dinner is good with entertaining but the travel agency service is terrible.

    Pretty good experience overall - the cyclo ride was comfy and luckily no accidents given the amount of cars and mopeds on the streets of the Ho Chi Minh! Puppet show lasted 45mins but it was enjoyable even though it wasn’t in English. The meal on the boat wasn’t too complicated and the live music wasn’t really great but it was nice to see the city at night.
