Great guide and tunnels, but Mekong part was off the mark

Our guide Hai had great English and interacted very well, couldn't ask for a better guide. Cu Chi tunnels was awesome, got to fire an M16 for an optional fee. But the Mekong... read more

Our guide Hai had great English and interacted very well, couldn't ask for a better guide. Cu Chi tunnels was awesome, got to fire an M16 for an optional fee. But the Mekong portion was a little underwhelming and sad. The local food and fruit was well prepared and delicious, but the local sinking was awkward, and the horse and... More

Nice and clean! Would recommend. We used Sinh Tourist for four different bus rides during our stay. Don't book online through 12goAsia!! It's cheaper to book direct with them at the shop! We booked online and paid about $20 more in total.

This was our second time using The Sinh Tourist while in Vietnam. We booked the Cu Chi Tunnel morning tour as well as the two day, one night Mekong Delta tour through them. They have professional, helpful staff and some of the best pricing in town.

Did the half visit day to the Cu Chi burrows, and truly delighted in it. I ran with Sinh as they were greatly improved esteem than a large portion of the other visit administrators. Our guide talked consummate English, was truly clear and useful, and strived to keep the gathering together. We were an expansive gathering, having generally filled a... More

Let's start, it's very cheap... included: guide, modernish coach, English speaking, lunch (drinks extra), on time no issues. Negatives: lunch... Is it fresh?? No worse than Ho Chi Minh city for level of hygiene, up to individuals whether that is good enough. Candy making and honey tea not overtly interesting (it's commercial) no explanation of method of manufacture, history etc.... More

Whenever need to refreshment The Sinh Tourist is always my choice. This time, the 1 day Mekong Delta was booked and departs on 2 Nov. Good transportation, helpful guide; excellent partners: boat driver; local restaurant and local singers. Highly recommended this company

We booked the this tour online. On the real day we were late for 5 mins (starts sharply at 7.00am) and the tour guide (Hai) was already urging us. Oops. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Hai was very informative and enthusiastic in explaining historical events during our visit to Cu Chi tunnel. He was very friendly, humorous and answered... More

It was 90 minutes transport ride to our Mekong. From that point, we took a pontoon for around 20 minutes before achieving the spot, which was an island that housed what seemed to be a surrendered visitor house and a little amusement stop. We were taken through the way toward making rice water to make rice paper which is a... More

This review is of the booking agent themselves, not the tour. The customer service is really poor. When enquiring about the tour they looked annoyed at our questions - not the friendly and welcoming experience you get from Vietnamese people usually. We were told to arrive by 7:15am for the pick up at 7:45am. On arrival we were told to... More

Barcelona, Spain

I have just finished my "open bus tour" with the real bus company Sinh Open bus- i think i dont need to write right address of all the offices the have around Vietnam to confirm that i was at the real one...-

My experience has been definitely bad...They dont do what the add.

  The staff in general are very rude...The first contact person at saigon office didnt want to sell the open bus ticket,only single one...She said to me. "busy season.We dont sell it anymore now" but I asked to her colleague few minutes later next to her and, she sold it to me without any trouble.That was weird to me.

They offer you an sleeper bus with wifi and WC but from Saigon to Hanoi i only found one bus with wifi and WC and... the worst thing is the bus stopped in the middle of the road for doing your necessities in the middle of the "countryside" They dont even stop you in a bar restaurant or petrol station...I couldnt believe it! and that not happened only one time... it was very often.

  One time, the staff by mistake took my backpack outside the bus at one stop but it was not my stop and they lied to me keeping telling i left my backpack outside when we did a 30 min stop for taking more passengers.Why i should take my backpack away my bus when my destination was another one? I was so glad when my backpack arrived next day.At least,the office staff arranged it without any problem as it should be.

In Hue, the bus stopped not at the central office of Hue just for taking commission from the motorbikes and taxis drivers. I went with a local to the office and i met the same office attendant who was waiting for our bus outside the city.what could you do when that happen to you? You just feel very upset...I was going to take a day tour with them but after all of these bad experiences i didnt and i am glad about that.Not very truthful people.Of course, not all of them but MOST of them...

And you cant sleep at night time the driver doesnt stop horning driving.So, you arrive to your next destination without any sleep...even being inside an sleeper bus...

Next time, i ll take the as many trains as i can.Cheap,much comfortable and single bus ticket if it is needed...

I took the train to Sapa and it was much nicer quier and cheap and the train allow you at least to use the wc and to enjoy the view at day time having beds at night time.

  i just wish that this info will be useful to someone who is thinking about buying this open bus ticket from sinh tourist.

I dont know why is recommended by the lonelyplanet guide,maybe they use to be good but not anymore.

Regards
