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!)
Long was our guide for the day and was very knowledgable, the trip was well organised and we were back to Saigon by 4.30pm
Great education tour due to well articulated and knowledgeable guide Heung (Mary). Thank you!
We loved it, Liem was wonderful!
A great day with some excitement and some cultural experience.
This tour was one of the highlights of our 2 1/2 weeks through Asia. We loved the tuk tuk ride through the jungle that led us to a restaurant in the middle of the jungle where we were served a delicious and authentic lunch in a gorgeous setting. We then took a boat ride to a canoe ride through a real jungle setting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and energetic with a great personality. I highly recommend this tour.
I'm not sure I can put into words how amazing this your was, but I'll sure try. Our tour guide was Long aka the BEST tour guide ever. He was very knowledgable about all things Ho Chi Minh City and answered all of our questions, and we ha ALOT. I would recommend to anyone!
We had a great trip mainly because our guide Queenie was so good. All the details were taken care of and there was nothing to think/stress about. It was good to get out of HCMC and see a different area/part of the culture
Very enjoyable trip. The tour guide Linda was very good and friendly.
We had (at very short notice) brought this forward by 2 days and there were no questions asked - it was just done.The trip was conducted by a group called 'Urban Adventures'. Began with the trip itself starting bang on time with a small group of 10. Our tour guide was excellent - full of information but let us enjoy the ride to the delta as well. We began with a ride on a boat (on which were served fresh coconut water) and cruised through the delta to arrive at a village where we were taken through the village, shown the lifestyle and served a delicious platter of fresh fruit and cold drinks which was perfect considering the day was hot and humid. Local singers and musicians entertained us. Note: Like any tour the drinks you always pay for - we also tipped the musicians. We were then taken by boat to the next destination where they manufactured coconut candy. Some of the more adventurous ones even tasted snake and scorpion wine. Next was a motorcycle ride through a long country trail into a remote village where we had the most wonderful freshly prepared sea food meal and just relaxed and got to know each other well. We then got onto sampans, and winded our way through the delta spotting houses and villages as we reached our boat for the return journey. Overall a fantastic adventure with a well organised group and very highly recommended. We have read many reviews on the delta tours and not all were great with some even going so far to say that not worth going there at all but this was a highlight during a holiday full of memorable moments.
I felt like a local on this tour. The bus took us to the countryside, where we boarded a tour boat, tuk-tuk, then a paddle boat. The sights were amazing. The people were warm and generous. Our tour guide, Linda, was very knowledgeable, and sensitive to our needs. I highly recommend this tour.
The trip to Mekong Delta was fantastic. Winnie our tour guide was wonderful. Was very glad we did this trip. Winnie really knew the history of the country, the area and the vegetation which was wonderful.
We had a lovely Day. It was nice to see the countryside on the way.
Linda our guide for the day was very good taking time to make sure everyone enjoyed the trip.
The boat trip across the Delta plus all the other things included in the trip were all very enjoyable.
This was the best trip as far as we were concerned
Would love to do it all over again.
We would have liked to spend longer in the Mekong Delta but our schedule would only permit one day. This tour gave us the opportunity to experience a little of the delta. A map citing the locations we visited would have been helpful to understand where we had been but this is only a suggestion. The lunch was good, typically local food provided in a nice setting. We loved the little boat trip through the canals. I think we travelled at a good time of year - no mosquitoes. Also if you were interested you had the opportunity to taste snake wine/liqueur.
Really enjoyed this day tour, nice and relaxing spending the day on the river, also includes an excellent lunch.
Amazing trip. Good guide Linda. Nice lunch. Amazing Delta boat ride and tuck tuck drive.
