We enjoyed the tour. I think what made it better was our tour guide. He spoke good English, Vietnames and Cambodian. The tour was well paced and correlated and was also very informative. Learned quite a bit and was able to get a good feel of what the area offered to its community. Definately would recommend this!
Great guide nicknamed Max. Really good day, thoroughly recommend.
Tour was good, maybe a bit long, I did not get back to hotel until 10.30. Maybe cut back on time in Laos. Long neck tribe was the highlight for me.
The tour was fun and a must try for an up close experience with the great Mekong river.
Good tour. The guide was very good. Explained everything in easy to understand english.
The itinerary is the itinerary. Probably could have done without the horse and cart ride through one of the small villages.
The row boat down one of the streams of the mekong was lovely and peaceful.
Great trip , albeit the pick ups from were we stayed and others took 1/2 hour, so we would have been better to meet at the agents offices which were just around the corner street. However once we got going and arrived at first stop on the trip, where we eat fruits and water, and listened to local music, it was great. The 1st part of river cruise, was a bit scary, 4 in a narrow row boat rowed by a local except the paddle snapped. My partners worst nitemare !!! . But we enjoyed it in the end. The second part on motorised boat and the meal at a local village restaurant on a river island was terrific. The largest meaty fish, elephant fish, from the river, was delicious and so different.
The guide was informative and friendly.
All in all a most unforgettable trip and well worth the money.

Quite large groups 3 busses on the day we went all pretty full that over lap slightly at each stop. Would still recommend if you are on a budget though. Overall a good experience with an average lunch unless you upgrade and some good sights to see. Coconut sweets were really tasty.
The actual part spent on the Mekong is about 10-15 mins on a small boat. It would be better if more time is spent on the Mekong, given it takes a long time to get there. Coconut candy making process was good, as was the folk singing. The royal jelly in tea part was not explained very well.
If you want to see the mekong delta this short trip which was fun to do with our tour guide commentary, very friendly and informative. Lunch was offered too which was plentiful.
