    The 4-star is for the cyclo ride, water puppet show and the guide. The guide is very friendly and helpful. the cruise is a bit disappointing - there is not much night view along the way (unless containers are regarded as night view). Last point, don’t have any expectation on the dinner.

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.

    Fun and memorable experience especially the dinner cruise. The Puppet show was good but since we were seated on the the 8th row, we really couldn't see the show as the people in front of us were taking video/photos. But overall experience was great.
  • Vina 20 Mar 2018
    The overall experience is amazing. Although the hotel pick up was a bit late, we were able to still join the tour. The puppet show was in Vietnamese so we didn’t understand but there was a pamphlet explaining each scene. It was out group’s first time to watch a puppet show so we were curious how it was done and how the puppets moved. The cyclo ride is interesting. It’s something different. There are no seatbelts and

    The tour guide was friendly .. The puppet show is amazing. Nice dinner set in the river cruise. At the end cyclo tour is exciting one. It’s worth for the money.

    My group of 6 was picked up by a taxi and the TNKTravels assigned guide at 545pm at my hotel lobby. My hotel was located in District 1. I was not picked up by Cyclo as my hotel was not on the streets listed. Happy to report that i did not need to go to the office at de Tham street on my own. We made it to the Water Puppet Show in good time. Great cultural experience but all explanations are in viet. Only the programme states the title of the segment in various languages. We then got on a cyclo for a 25 min ride through the city by night and to the dinner cruise. The ship was like a traditional wooden junk. Very rustic and beautiful. Different from the Tau Saigon ship. the food was a set meal and was generally cold. Only the pork with sauce was served in a hotpot and was hot enough. Food was oK tasty but too cold. Otherwise generally a great experience. Highly recommend

    Enjoyed the Cyclo ride on the busy night streets. It's a very good experience. We joined the tour with 2 pax, so dinner was arranged for us by the window of the cruise. Dinner was good.
  • Chris 22 Feb 2018
    Water puppet show is in Vietnamese language, so we could not totally understand the show. Dinner cruise was generally enjoyable, food was acceptable but not fantastic.
  • JONATHAN 20 Feb 2018

    This was the best tour I had. The Water Puppet Show was nice, the Cyclo ride was fun and finally the dinner cruise along Saigon River was super. Our meal was good!
  • Ying Chuan 25 Jan 2018
    5 stars for the water puppet show. the only flaw is the lacking of English booklet to explain the story so foreign audience not able to fully immersed in this marvellous cultural heritage. 1 star for the lack of communication with the vietnam agency who insisted on keeping their contact undisclosed. I nearly missed to be picked up by the driver as he came more than 30 minutes later. The cyclo transfer to the cruise is exciting but not suitable for those who have weak heart. The dinner at the cruise is so under expectation as they served overcooked meat and so so dishes.
