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.

    Despite the rain, my mom and I enjoyed the cyclo ride, the puppet show and dinner on the cruise. Our guide Pham was very friendly. Really worth it. A must try when visiting Saigon.

    We enjoyed so much this package tour. We availed the Premier (2-12pax only) tour. First we were fetched at Eden Garden Hotel by Cyclo Riders and tour aroi d the city before bringing us to water puppet show. The cyclo ride was very relaxing and fun. Expect that the cyclo rider/driver would ask for Tips. The water puppet show was also enjoyable and amazing. I am still wondering how did they manage to play the puppet in the water. Our tour guide Vy was very helpful and booking one of our friends so he could join us. I was just a little bit dismayed when Viy brought us to the bus with over 12 passengers. I was expecting that the ride would be for a maximum of 12 persons. When we arrived at the port for our dinner cruise, my group were seated in one table with good view for the performers. The food is good except that the hot pot was served so late

    We went to the meeting point eventhough our hotel was in District 1 since the street of our hotel was not indicated on the description but later our guide told us he was at our hotel to pick us up but we were already at the meet-up place. No big deal since it was just near our hotel. We went on a cyclo ride to the theater 🎭. Need to have pamphlet/program to really understand the story line of the show. It was very entertaining and educational. After the show we went to the dinner cruise. Smooth sailing although it rained. Had a perfect view of Saigon by night plus the food was really good. Much recommended.

    Tao was our tour guide, She was amazing. It was Vietnam national day and we almost did Not get in the cruise as police were blocking roads. She did her best so we can Go through and police allowed us to Go inside because of her. On TOP of it we expeirence the best fire works im Vietnam @ the cruise in he Middle of the River. What an amazing experience!

    Puppets were done pretty creative. Storyline was indeed funny even though there isn't any subtitles shown but one would understand from the actions done. Another great activity not to be missed.

    Cyclo was fun and nerve wrecking , water puppet is okay ,just that we dont know what is going on with the storyline, dinner cruise was memorable.
  • laura k 16 Aug 2018
    The water puppet show was really entertaining. And the dinner cruise was really nice... the dinner was delicious, the views of Saigon from the boat were gorgeous, and the onboard cultural entertainment was really good as well. As a solo traveler, I was disappointed to be ushered to a table so I could eat by myself... if I had known that would be the case, I probably wouldn't have gone.

    Cyclo ride was really interesting and fun. The weather was nice which really helps! Although we were told tips are not compulsory but the cyclist kept reminding us so it feels kind of forced/compulsory. Water puppet show was funny but would help if there can be some narration in English. The river cruise was average. Food was not great but decent. Didn’t actually get to see much of the cultural dance as our table was at the back. Also not much time to enjoy the river cruise as well as after we are done with dinner it was almost time to leave. Plus it was raining.

    The show was extremely entertaining, despite not knowing the Vietnamese language! Scenes were hilarious, its no difficult to understand why this theatre acts were entertaining in the days before television! Cruise was good too, food was yummy, but portions were small.
