    The cyclo ride was a great experience but felt dangerous riding it on a busy road. The water puppet show was funny although I can't understand their scripts. The tour guide very friendly & helpful.

    We booked the Saigon Cultural Evening Tour, Water Puppet Show, Dinner Cruise. We had a great time. We showed up here at 5:30 as instructed. After waiting about 15 minutes they put us in cyclos to the water puppet theater which was a fun ride in itself. Riding in the front of one of these bike through Ho Chi Minh traffic is an experience we will not soon forget. Load of fun. When we arrived at the theater they seated us right away and after about 15 minutes the show started. I think it lasted about 45 minutes. It was very cute and lots of fun with live musicians playing and singing through the show. It was very amusing. After this our guide Van led us to a van parked out front and we headed for the river front in district 4. We were seated in excellent seats by the window on the boat and it was quite an elegant affair with music, dancers, a beautiful water front cruise and a great dinner. There were several courses to the dinner and all were great. I think this tour is well worth the $42 we paid through Klook for it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is quite an enjoyable experience.

    We had a wonderful night joining this Saigon Cultural Evening Cruise. Started off with the experience in taking cyclo from our hotel to the theatre, followed by watching the Water Puppet show although we don't know their language and a splendid evening cruise along Song Sai Gon

    It was fun and exhilarating cyclo ride from the hotel to the Water Puppet Show, a 30-min educational show, then ending it with a Dinner River Cruise. The food was scrumptious. A well deserved holiday. As expected, KLOOK’s arrangement was smooth. We had so much fun. Don’t miss this one, guys.

    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.

    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.

    The experience of 3-wheel bikes is pleasant ! Really nice tour guide who shows us the history and details of the puppet show. The puppet show was something we have never seen before and definitely worth visiting!!

    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.
