  • This tour was amazing. Highlight of our trip. Our tour guide was Yen and he was fantastic! So informative and friendly. This tour is a must do for sure!!

  • Very enjoyable, jam packed tour.
    Includes a relaxing cruise down Mekong delta, visits to local craft workshops, local musicians performance, cycle around the village and kayaking(optional) and large Vietnamese meal.
    Our guide Yen gave us lots of information , a good fun tour with many photo ops.

  • -pretty disappointing-
    We booked the 50EUR trip to the Cai Be floating market as it was advertised as a great attraction of the Mekong Delta second only to Can Tho. Instead, after 3h driving, we were presented with one boat only and no market whatsoever. Yet we were told that that was the market and that it was normal that there were not many boats, apparently due to the season. First time i heard that a market would stop in a certain time frame especially while the one in Can Tho was surely ongoing.
    Our guide, Yen, was nice but didn't seem particularly interested in us! Always sat at different tables, playing with his phone and a bit rushed and vague in his explanations.
    Needless to say that overall the area is beautiful but together with the disappointing market the day was a stop- and -tip-tour where we were invited to tip anyone that was giving us the service we thought we had paid for! Also some activities in the local factories were not even performed but explained by the guide. The paddling in the canal was very nice but its romance lasted 5mins until the motor was turned on! Technically the tour has potentials because it is a very nice area but it was totally rushed and clearly confusing money wise especially because we learnt that not every body paid the same price!

  • Very well organised tour, even though we realised we were not meant to do group tour.
    The highlight of the day for us was at the end, going slowly through the canals on small local boats, wow!
    Even if there is a touristic pushing if you only have one day we definitly recommand this tour, the Mekong is a must see!

  • Enjoyed this one day tour. Our tour guide, Frank Mr Phuc, was nice and provided a lot of helpful information during the tour.
