    I highly recommend the Mekong Delta speedboat tour! We were lucky to be the first booking in two years and it was amazing. Sunny was an incredible tour guide. They picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the marina where we boarded the speedboat for a local market outside of Saigon. The speedboat driver was fantastic -- I can't think of a better or faster way to make it down to the Mekong Delta. The next stop was to an island where we sampled local honey, jumped on a small paddle boat and drifted through the quiet jungle river, walked thru the village and took a tuk-tuk truck to the coconut kingdom where we got to sample coconut delights, before being transported to an amazing lunch location. Overall the day was exciting. My friends and I could not stop talking about it for days after the trip. We thank Sunny for being such a great host and for being an expert on everything we wanted to know. If you are reading this far -- you must book this trip in Saigon/HCMC. The speedboat alone is worth the trip. Thank you, Sunny!

    Just finished this trip with the wonderful tour guide Demi and her "proprietary IP" pre-made tourbook to answer all our silly questions :-) Really lovely place in the coconut island (Bến Tre) as target, the 8 hour trip was around half speedboating and half walking and listening to local flora and fauna encyclopedia D.M. The actual final destination with a few restaurants with live music show and a sort of mini wildlife reserve is a bit of a touristy place, but in reasonably good taste. Due to our not-so-dear friend Corona it was not that crowded so felt familiar to us small group of nordic country citizens. Looots of fresh fruit were provided by the organizers and eaten, most of it super yummy. At the final venue trying that snake rice wine as well as holding a python were fun times. Lunch was quite good and plentiful with 7 different warm foods. Sad about the rampant littering all around the Mekong delta and near river shores in general, but otherwise it was near perfect as the area has truly beautiful nature. So huge thanks Saigon River Tour and guide Demi for a marvellous day, highly recommended!

    We had an excellent day out seeing the Mekong Delta and parts of Vietnam we wouldn’t of without the tour. Sunny was a great guide and shared lots of the history and culture of the region. Transfers and the boat crew were also very friendly!

    We had a fabulous day out with Sunny as our guide on the Mekong Delta tour. It was a fun day with lots of different things to see and we learnt a lot about the local culture. Sunny was really knowledgeable and friendly and seemed to have a great relationship with all the locals. She told us she taught herself English which is amazing! We loved visiting the markets, and the lunch was delicious! Would recommend for a day out. 5 stars for the tour and even more stars for Sunny! 🌟
