The tour itself was excellent and more then expected. We were taken on a variety of boats each of which gave us a different experience and a different side of the delta. We commenced on a wide section of the Mekong River before delving into the Delta. Along the way we were taken to a brick work, given a display of mat making, shown how coconuts were processed into sweets and provided with lunch. My only issue was with the guide who was perhaps not as informative as he could have been. Whilst he was capable, very pleasant and, at time humorous, he did not provide the depth of information that would have added further to our experience and, he slept most of the way back to Ho Chi Minh.

Very nice trip, convenient but still interesting. Our guide was very professional and informative. We liked it a lot. Travelling with two childden, age 9 and 11.

Our tour was small (only 3 of us) which made it feel all the more exclusive. Our tour guide had a lot to say about everything we saw, and really knew his stuff. The highlight was for sure the lunch we ate, absolutely fantastic. You don't spend a lot of time on the water, but I still really enjoyed it.

A great day out and a lovely relaxing way to experience the delights of the Mekong Delta. Everything as promised in the itinerary and one of the best lunches provided on any of the trips booked. Well worth the money.

We loved the tour and the tour guide, Kate. The bus provided to and from the Mekong Delta was clean and comfortable and the organization the entire trip was great.

This was a reasonable tour. Quite touristy but a good introduction to the Mekong. Would suggest something else if you wanted a more personal/off the beaten track experience.

Only complaint was we were not given any water throughout the day even though it was 'included' and were then cheekily charged for drinks over lunch.

This trip was just amazing!! We saw so much during the one day and really felt we got a taste of life in Vietnam here. Our tour guide, Henry, was excellent - so knowledgable and friendly. Great value for money!

Was a great day. Very small group and we all got on well. Our tour guide Tim was fantastic ! We were driven out to the Mekong delta and had a combination of riding in boats, push bikes and canoes. We were taken to various local industries and entertained by locals. Our lunch was spectacular and gave us an opportunity to get to know each other. The drive back to the hotel was tedious but there was a it of head nodding happening. A great day, highly recommended.

I had a great day with Tommy as my guide! He was friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable and the tour was at a good pace with lots to see. Really delicious food for lunch - more than I could eat! - and a comfy minibus to take us there and back. I would definitely recommend.
