What You Can Expect

Your tour begins with an 8am pickup from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel by your private guide. Traveling in the comfort of a private air-conditioned vehicle, set out on the around 2-hour journey to Ham Luong Pier in Ben Tre.

Hop aboard for a motor boat cruise along the Ben Tre River, one of tributaries of Mekong river, and soak up the scenery as you glide downstream, passing waterfront villages, lush rice paddies, and lively fishing communities. Along the way, hop off to try fishing with the local fishermen, enjoy tea with the villagers, and visit small businesses including a traditional brickworks, a sleeping mats workshop, and a coconut-processing workshop.

Re-fuel with a delicious lunch (included) at a local restaurant, then explore further with a ride through the farmlands on a motor cart and a rowing boat cruise along a tranquil creek.

Back at Ham Luong Pier, set out on the return journey to Ho Chi Minh City, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Nice private tour of the Mekong Delta. We especially enjoyed the boat ride through the smaller waterways. Overall, good trip and I would recommend it to others.
