Everything was perfect as from the beginning. Distribution of information was very professional: confirmation and reminder via email and the day before an elegant envelop in our room to remind us of the trip. Our guide Anh was professional, competent and really sympathique. He did do everything for the success of the trip. He arrived at the time indicated the day before in the letter, then after having collected everybody we were 8 altogether he started to give us some detailed information about the life of the Mekong people. We stopped for a coffee in an oasis, and a bit later arrived to the peer of Cài Bè where we took the boat. The trip was very well organized: floating market, candy factory, bees far, bicycle ride and cooking class ended up with a very tasty lunch. Ending the tour we had a 30 minutes water trip with a traditional wooden boat. It was fantastic in the green delta, palm trees, banana trees and also small houses or villas where people are living. I definitely would recommend the travel agency and if you have the chance, your guide will be Anh!!
We met at Saigon Opera House, and it was easy to find and meet up with Linda (our guide). From there we went to My Tho to catch the boat to start our tour on the Mekong Delta. It was a fun and relaxing day trip. We tried fresh honey, coconut candy, local fruit, and "elephant ear" fish. My favorite part was the end where we rode the row boat in the water coconut trees. We finished the tour with fresh coconut water on the boat ride to catch our minivan back to Saigon. It was a great trip!
Best tour out of Ho Chi Minh city, Mekong Delta was very interesting lunch fantastic to eat fish and prawn from river. Mary our guide was friendly and an expert on Life and area. Most reasonable price compared to what hotel was going to charge most important the tour company has a small bus
Totally recommend this tour, for the beautiful views of the Mekong Delta and an understanding of life on the tiny islands within the delta.
Fun tour! The Mekong Delta is a beautiful place and it's a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City. Tham was an excellent guide who is very proud of her home and gave an honest and open background to the tour. The food was also excellent and I really enjoyed the variety of the tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Mekong Delta Trip. The highlight was the tuk tuk drive via the narrow roads to the testaurant for lunch. Every segment of the tour was interesting and well timed. The tour guide Huong Nguyen was informative, knowledgeable and very helpful. Heather
What a great tour. The different modes of transport , having local herb wine with the workers . Going down the Mekong - just exceptional. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and made the group feel important. Don't miss this tour as it is Vietnam !!!!
We just loved the half a day trip we did in Mekong Delta. Our trip leader Long Huynh was amazing by introducing the history of HCMC and Vietnam besides the fact that he was always helpful, positive and discrete q.b. Maybe the lunch diversity can be improved for western people but it's part of the experience, so I would accept as it.
Mekong was a lovely experience and our tour guide was amazing. He was very friendly and gave us a lot of information. we had a great time.
Our Mekong tour was one of the best tours in Vietnam in several years . Our guide Linda was very professional and her knowledge of Vietnam was second to none. A most enjoyable day. John Glatz Adelaide.
Our guide Tham was welcoming, entertaining, and had a great attitude. The tour gives a great glimpse into Mekong Delta life. I loved that we traveled by boat, tuk tuk, and 'canoe' to experience the different aspects of the area. Interesting, a bit adventurous, and fun.
A very interesting day trip. For the time available we certainly saw and did a lot and Queenie was terrific with her commentary. It was a good insight to the Mekong Delta. Worth doing.
My partner and I had a fabulous time during our 'Mekong Delta Discovery Small Group Adventure Tour from Ho Chi Minh City'. We bought our tour through www.viator.com.
Linda our tour guide greeted us at our meeting point (Saigon Opera House), and almost immediately we were shown to our little tour van. During our drive towards the Mekong river, Linda talked to us about Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam.
Throughout the tour, Linda was very professional telling us all we needed to know about the Mekong River. The lunch provided was delicious!
After our tour, Linda gave us some tips on getting around in HCM - which taxi's to take, what to do on a taxi (remember the driver and number plate of the taxi just in case we left something behind). We were treated so well on the tour and Linda made us feel very special!
Thank you Linda and driver Thong (I might have gotten his name wrong!)
The tour was very well organized and full of activities of interest. We definetly would recomend this tour as Mekong Delta experience: we only wanted a little bit more of cooking class: the guide was great, the information provided, the cycling, the boat and the deep insight information about life on Mekong comunities was a must.
Had a great trip to the Mekong Delta. We were picked up at our hotel promptly at 6:30 a.m. We were then transferred to a bus. There was a group of 12 people all totaled. It took 2hours to get to,the delta. We did have a coffee/bathroom stop along the way. Once we arrived, then transferred to a boat. Went off to find the floating market. Not many boats at the market though. From there proceeded to a stop to see honey/tea sales. Then off to the coconut factory. We walked from one locale to the next. Very interesting. Lots of things for sale, plus tastings. Next on to the small boat to go up a side stream. Arrived, then walked to the restaurant where we would be rolling spring rolls for lunch. Delicious lunch and so much food. Afterwards a bike ride through the villages. About one hour on bikes on a concrete path. Lots of fun passing homes, people, scooters, animals, you name it. Back by boat to our original point, then back to HCMC. Great day and very interesting people on the tour.
