Certainly, your trip can be a good mix of PRIVATE DAY TOURS and JOIN-GROUP DAY TOURS as you wish, just simply let us know!

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) Arrival

You will be welcomed at the airport (Arrival Lounge, the driver will hold a Welcome Sign with your Name and our company Logo on), then you will be taken directly to your hotel in downtown, in a private vehicle. Check in hotel (check in time is from 14.00).
You can then choose to relax at your Hotel or energy permitting, stretch your legs by taking a walk-through busy Streets of HCMC, a perfect way to explore the daily life. Dinner is on your own tonight (with recommendation from your Travel Specialists if you wish).

Meals included: No

Overnight in HCMC


Day 2: HCMC – Cu Chi Tunnels – HCMC City Tour

After breakfast at the hotel, at around 8.30am we depart from Ho Chi Minh City to Cu Chi Tunnels, that’s about 80km from Ho Chi Minh city. The tunnel system was built by the Viet Cong in the war battles in the South of Vietnam. The tunnels are a sobering insight into the dedication of the Viet Cong who lived almost entirely underground in the narrow and claustrophobic tunnels, for up to 10 years! Upon arrival, you will have a chance to watch a brief video that will introduce you to the Cu Chi tunnels, followed by a walk through the reserve. In this walk, you can see the Secret Entrance to the tunnels, workshops for the handmade weapons, the clinic bunker, the commander bunker, the meeting bunker and the kitchen bunkers, which are all open and above ground. Nearby is a chilling exhibition of the traps and weapons used against the American GIs. If you are brave, you can experience the Cu Chi tunnels by crawling inside to see how difficult life must have been, and discover the 3 levels underground.

For those who do not like the claustrophobic atmosphere, you do not have to crawl into these tunnels! The small replica displayed outside will give you a perfect example of what the interior looked like.

We return HCMC around noon for Lunch at local restaurant (at your own expense).

In the afternoon, our guide will show you the most interesting sights that Ho Chi Minh City has to offer. Depart from your hotel to the Reunification Palace; this beautifully preserved palace was the residence of the President of the Republic of Vietnam. On April 30th, 1975 the American War officially came to an end here. Enjoy a visiting the War Remnants Museum where you can see countless artifacts, photographs, and pictures documenting the second Indochina war.

After this, we visit The Notre Dame Cathedral, which was built in 1880, and the Old Post Office, which was built sometime between 1886 and 1891. It is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Next is Jade Emperor Pagoda. This is an ancient temple, as the Chinese temple style with bright decorative motifs.

Our last stop will be at a local Market where you can practice your bargaining skills while shopping for souvenirs. Discover local life and culture. You’ll find some of the friendliest, liveliest, most convivial people in the city in here. Return your hotel around 18:00. The evening and dinner are on your own.

Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in HCMC



Day 3: HCMC – Mekong Delta (Ben Tre) – Can Tho

After breakfast and check out, your private tour guide will pick you up and take you to Ben Tre town, on the way to the heart of the Mekong Delta, via some rustic country roads (travel time approximately 2 hours). The Mekong Delta, popularly known as the “rice bowl” of Vietnam, is famous for its vast rice fields, orchard farms, coconut trees, numerous waterways and beautiful landscapes.
When you arrive at Ben Tre town, you will embark on a motorized boat trip along the scenic Ben Tre River, visiting various local industries along the way such as the small local factories where bricks and sleeping mats are made. You will take a leisure walk along the village lanes visiting the local homes to sample dry fruits, and enjoy honey tea while enjoying a local Tai Tu music show. You will also visit a coconut mill workshop where the local delicacy of coconut candy is produced, and a range of coconut husk and fiber products are skillfully handcrafted.
You will then take a small sampan boat through palm-fringed back canals, gliding peacefully along the hidden waterways surrounded by an immense variety of tropical plants. The quiet, rural setting is a welcome and restorative retreat to the frenetic buzz of Saigon which seems so far away.

Lunch will be served at a local restaurant where you will sample some of the local cuisines.

After lunch, you can relax for 30 minutes before traveling back on the river to the ferry to Can Tho city, the heart of Mekong Delta. Stay overnight at the hotel. Free time to visit bustling Can Tho night market.

Fabulous Trip. Excellent Service!

Thank you, Emma, at Asia Trip Deals for organizing such a wonderful Vietnam & Cambodia trip. The itinerary was excellent. Hotel choices were superb. The local guides were very knowledgeable about the area. They were very hard-working and enthusiastic. They were the ones who made this a five-star tour.
The whole trip exceeded my expectations. We couldn’t have had a better trip!!! We would definitely consider another trip through Asia Trip Deals and we’ve already recommended this company to our families and friends.

A great service if you want this

I was a female solo traveller and from my first email, I was made to feel important. I detailed the countries I wanted to go to and the time frame. You can also tell them all the things that you want to see and do. I had nothing specific so I left it to my consultant, Helen. She only had 1 month to organise for me to go to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia for 4 weeks.
Over a short time she came up with an itinerary. We worked through this with a few small changes – but I always felt that nothing was too much trouble for them to sort out for me. If I did not understand something, it was explained to me. I received all the necessary information to do my visas online and all the internal flights and travel were organised. I did not want 5 star hotels so went with 3 star. It was great, all the hotels were right in the middle of the action, were very clean and friendly – after all, you are only sleeping there a short while so gives you more to spend on your holiday. Even once you are into your holiday Helen was still in contact with me to make sure everything was as expected. Again, if you wanted a change along the way, they were only too happy to fix for you. My final itinerary became my nightly bible read so that I knew what was expected the next day. I got to meet with Helen when I reached Hanoi which was really nice.
I was so impressed with their service that I endeavoured to inform all the people I encountered along the way about their capabilities. I always felt very safe wherever I went and it was great being picked up from the airport & taken back. A great service if you want this.
