My Review
My wife and Self shared this tour with a 3 person group of Young American College students who were great company. Trip to Mekong was great 1.5 hours not 3 on good sealed high way. At the embarkation point we were shown a map and our guide showed us the days journey followed up with a verbal list of who would recieve a tip and how much it should be. This included the boatman ,the motor bike driver, the singing group and the 2 canoe rowers. Although the dollar value wasnt much to us , nobody appreciated being put the spot . That pretty much set the theme for paying for everthing guy with Monkey had his hand out as did the pet snake owner. Tour itself was pretty touristy Motor bike ride around the paddies was highlight for me. Lunch was included which was mediocre compared to what we had previously sampled again want a drink thats a dollar. It was a very hot day take plenty of water and a Deet based insect repellant lots of bugs.

My Review
Buffalo tours were the suppliiersubcontractor for this tour and as a coincidence had provided numerous transfers for us during our travels round Vietnam providing a stand out service. Tour guide was absolutley charming and fluent and as it was a personal tour just 2 of us flexible with our itineray after 3 days In Hue how many more pagodas do you want to see!. Renification Palace was interesting, war remnants Museum was haunting very graphic displays and photos! Post office and Cathedral worth the visit . We skipped the rest and went to Ben Thanh Markets for 3 hours great shopping althougth persistence of the stall holders gets a bit overwhelming especially when its 38 degrees!
