    Not so touristy. Nice and friendly tour guide Dana. There were only 2 of us in the group, very private which I liked very much. Included few shopping spots. The lunch was great, big portion for table of 2.

    Our tour guide Uy has exceptional knowledge. Very informative and humorous. Food was fantastic and people very friendly. Would definitely recommend these guys

    We were very disappointed the Floating Market was not available... I note that the description now states this, but sadly this was not the case when we originally booked. When we mentioned it our guide said we needed to book a multi day tour to see a floating market - not much help at the time unfortunately. That said, we did like the cruise and making our own pancakes was a lot of fun. Overall I would say good not great. If you have your heart set on seeing the floating market then another tour may suit better.

    We had a great day out on the Mekong covering a lot of fun activities including: riding on a small sampan boat past fruit farms, cycling around Cai Be town and even cooking our own rice pancakes. Our guide Chris was very friendly and informative and really showed us how the local people live. We also had a good driver called Van!

    We had a wonderful experience doing the Full-Day Trip to Cai Be Village & Mekong Delta Boat Ride - our guide Thong (prounounced Tong) was 72 years old and a wealth of knowledge - both he and the driver were very caring, punctual and professional. It's an excursion we won't forget ! Oh, and the lunch was lovely but could have fed at least six people :)

    So expensive and the worst of all four trips we did in Vietnam. The guide was only after a tip and hinted about it all day. He cancelled us going on the Mekong delta because it rained for 15 mi utes. We were stuck at a stupid house where the people played instruments for 5 minutes and then bought around a tip bucket and waited till we put money in. So awkward. The only good part wS the lunch and cooking class. After the lunch we went on a ridiculous bike ride on the worst bikes. No brakes, bent wheels and twisted pedals. Super dangerous. This was outrageously expensive. We didn’t get to go to the floating market and we didn’t see any floating boats. Don’t know where we went but it wasn’t the Mekong delta. This was a lie of a tour, and they under delivered on every aspect. DO NOT GO ON THIS TRIP. All the guides wants is a tip and you get zero experience. We want our money back.

    What a fantastic trip this was. Our group of three were picked up from our hotel by our personal driver and tour guide. Everything expected was delivered and our guide was extremely helpful and informative. The boat trips down the Mekong Delta were definitely the highlights and great photo opportunities. The meal at the end was great and a nice way to end our day before the journey home. The only thing I would have changed is to ask for more time in the local market, which was vibrant and intriguing.

    We did a private tour for 8 people and our tour was hosted by Uy. Overall great experience with a knowledgeable guide and great sense of humor. Would absolutely recommend him and the driver Mr. Dong was great too. Provided a smooth and safe ride

    Had a great tour with Dana, she was very knowledgeable and spoke english very well. She was able to point out a lot about the local culture and the nature during our tour. She took us on a boat ride along the river first, and then we stopped by a couple of different local places to eat some fruit and locally made candy/snacks. After that we stopped for lunch and then she took us on a bike ride around a small village!
