What to know in advance of Cooking Class & Saigon Sunset Cruise 

Bring your camera! There are amazing photo opportunities when observing the beautiful sunset on Saigon River.

Please request vegetarian or Halal food options 24 hours in advance of your tour. Please note for Halal food a $10 surcharge will be incurred.

Soft drinks ( Coke Zero), matcha green tea, water and fruit provided during the boat journey are included in the overall price and not subject additional charge.

Les Rives will provide insect repellent, waterproof ponchos and umbrellas.

Please note that the abundant water hyacinth on the Saigon River can cause the boat to stall, meaning sometimes we’ll have to go at a gentler pace than usual. Occasionally there are slight delays.

We are happy to say that no tour is exactly the same with Les Rives, and as result scheduled times can vary slightly.

All guides speak excellent English and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
