Great tour
mikebunger, Feb 2020
Our tour guide, Bichle, was great. She is the best tour guide I have ever met. Her English is excellent and her knowledge of the Mekong Delta, Saigon and Vietnam is amazing. She is great@
Huge disappointment!
Sona_R, Jan 2020
This tour was a disappointment, as I felt 90% of the tour we were taken to local business who tried to sell us various products. You only get about 10 minutes on the rowing boat on the canal, the rest of the tour is not really worth it.our guide was sick, so didn’t interact with us most of the day, he slept for over an hour in a hammock at lunch, we didn’t know what we were eating, or what the plan was. Very disappointing!
Offensive comments
Kevin_M, Dec 2019
When your tour guide tells passengers that the Vietnamese worship white people’s skin color and they don’t want to be dark whilethere are people of color aboard, makes for a very uncomfortable tour. The tour guides need to “know their audience” in this case quite obvious before making such comments.
Nicely organized
Samer_M, Dec 2019
The tour included multiple stops, on different islands on the delta. We learned about the lives of the villagers, how they sustain themselves, their agriculture and animal husbandry.
Michael N, Dec 2019
I did a half day tour. The tour guide didn’t know much. Took us to places that seemed insignificant. Fell asleep at times. Pushed us to tip everyone for everything. For example we sat down and ate fruit as paid for upon purchase yet he wanted us to pay again. We were there for ten minutes so it made no sense. The river rides were good but that was about it. I heard later that you need to do a two day tour minimum. But what this tour bragged about was not included in my tour.
Outstanding tour with LINDA as guide
bonpla, Nov 2019
This tour was wonderful with only 7 people along with good driver and wonderful guide LINDA . She spoke English very well. The sights and personal attention were great.
pleasant tour
Safari603274, Oct 2019
We had a nice time with other tourists who came from different countries. Our guide Fully speaks decent English and he was always willing to learn. We expect more war memory but bit surprised by all the sales of Mekong area's products. For our generation Mekong Delta is a place of sad sentiment and it was only our hope to pray for all the souls both Vietnamese, Americans and others.

Chamath K, Oct 2019
This tour was extremely well-planned and well-executed. The guide 10 voice very professional and information given the participants was more then expected . The lunch was extremely good and we have not had the pleasure of having a lunch of this type in our whole visit to Vietnam. This tour is a must in Vietnam and is highly recommended
Fantastic experience!

We were a group of 5 friends in a total of only 11 and all found this trip to be a highlight of our visit to Vietnam. We especially enjoyed the warmth,friendliness and knowledge of our local guide Bich. Definitely a trip worth doing
