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.
Linda our tour guide was full of information about the country, city and we had a great time learning and experiencing Vietnam with her guidance.
great tour, excellent guide, Linda. A very good way to see the Mekong, either because you haven't much time to do a longer tour, or as a taster in anticipation of considering a longer tour.
I love this tour! Gem the guide was fantastic and very informative. I was pleased to learn a lot about the Mekong community, thrilled to have tried the banana and snake wines, stoked to have taken my picture with a snake around my neck, and I really enjoyed the lunch that was served!
Our trip was amazing...and so much fun! It definitely exceeded our expectations...and our guide Linda was superb! Would highly recommend...
Absolutely fantastic ... Loved it :) Linda (tour guide) was very professional, knowledgeable and funny... lots of food and drinks on the way... Tuk tuk ride on the island and small boat cruising through Mekong was the highlight... so much fun... Just be aware that it s about two hours drive from Saigon city...
Very helpful and knowledgeable tour guide (sorry forget his name). Sumptuous lunch: the elephant fish is extraordinary. Different modes of transport (boat, sampan, motor taxi) creates a unique experience. My son especially liked the ride on the motor taxi on the way to the coconut factory. .
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time exploring the Mekong river and the villages that we visited. Nothing like being on the ground to really get soaked in the local colour. The tour was made more enjoyable courtesy of a very friendly and competent tour guide by the name of Huung Nguyen. She was very good.
It was a fun and interesting experience that one cannot get elsewhere. Loved it when we switched from the bigger boats to the long boats. Guide was nice and helpful. Does not require lots of physical walking, so quite enjoyable for all ages. See a bit of the Vietnam countryside before its urbanized in a few years! Would recommend to friends and family if they ever visit!
We had the same lovely guide Linda that we had the previous day for another trip. Again she was very knowledgable and couldn't have done more to ensure that everyone on the trip was happy . She made sure that we saw and experienced as much as was physically possible in the day. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Saigon if you want to see Vietnam.
My wife and I enjoyed this tour.Our guide was very good,the scenery and the food was very good.It was an enjoyable day.
Linda was fabulous! Her knowledge of the region and her command of the English language was impressive. The tuk tuk tour through the backroads was so much fun. I highly recommend this tour.
Great fun! Lovely to go down the river on a longtail boat, very relaxing. Enjoyed the Mekong delacaies for lunch, amongst other delicious food, the fish they served was amazing. All in lovely lush surroundings of the palm trees. Travelling by Sampan was great fun too. Interesting visit to the Coconut Candy tour. All in all a really great trip!
it was absolutely amazing and productive. You see and do so many things at once. The tour paid for itself and much more than that. I recommend this tour to everyone and I can't wait to bring my family to see this for themselves too!
This tour was great! Our guide, Tam, was really knowledgeable and charismatic. She cracked jokes and kept us entertained! The tour itself was also really nice. Everything I expected and the food was delicious!
The trip was very informative. The guide was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs, especially when there was a heavy rain while we were crossing the Mekong river, he had ready raincoats for all of us.
The only hitch there was, as the lead traveller, i thought we would missed the trip because it took us a while before we found him at the Saigon Opera House. We approached the driver of the same bus we took and showed the voucher, and was given a "NO" answer, maybe because of language barrier. It could have been easy if the mobile phone of the guide was provided to us and vice versa for easy access.
Very small group. Our guide, Miss Lim, was quite nice and friendly. The multiple boat rides were fun. Stops for music, food, and local culture were all enjoyable. Loved the small boat ride through the backwaters and the motorized cart ride.
The trip commenced from the Opera House, the guide was there and we were taken the 21/2 hour trip to the Mekong Delta. Our guide spoke very good English and told us about the Mekong Delta and life around it on the coach trip. We stopped at a 'motorway cafe' equivalent in England which was very pleasant with a large lake and toilet/food facilities. We had a great time on the boats, motorcarts and a really nice lunch. Saw how coconut sweets are made and tasted the tripical fruits which are grown there. All in all an excellent trip and well worth it.
For our first visit to Vietnam, this tour provided a great introduction to the country. The day was very well organised and the visits and activities were interesting and slightly exciting respectively. Highly recommended. If it helps to mention this, I am a 66 yr old woman and had no difficulties with anything.
Had a great time visiting the Mekong Delta with our tourguide Tham. The fact that she herself was from the Delta really added value as she had great insights. From the boat rides to the fruit tastings to being driven around in Tuk Tuks, everything about this trip was a lot of fun. The coconut candy factory was interesting as well. Would definitely recommend.
Outstanding experience. The day was full of interesting experiences. We felt like we had several opportunities to interact with local people in meaningful ways. Our guide was informative and very helpful.
This Tour really exceeded my expectations by a long way as I thought we were just doing a boat trip down the Mekong River but in fact we did far more . Apart from the really enjoyable experience of going down the River on the Boat it was great to stop and meet the locals on our tour and see how they live their lives . Meeting the locals and travelling on the MotorBike around the local villages and having lunch with was so beautifully prepared by the locals was very heartwarming . In fact I am hoping to return to Ho Chi Minh next year and plan to do the Mekong Delta Discovery Small Group Adventure tour again . I love Vietnam and the people are so friendly and helpful .Our Guide called Long was fantastic .I very strongly reccomend this tour to everybody . Best Wishes from Norman .
