      We chose the private tour from Ho Chi Minh City with pick up service form the hotel. The van was super comfy & nice. Our tour guide Bao is very informative and helpful with all the history & background story in the Mekong Delta. We visited different islands in the Mekong Delta. During the whole trip, on top of the scenery we always got the chance to taste the local food. Bao also showed us the process of making coconut candy, and we have the luck to try different flavors for coconut candy. We also had the opportunity to try the local honey tea, which is very tasty and flavorful. The lunch is also very tasty and abundant. We tried the spring roll with elephant ear fish and fresh off board scampi. Sometimes we will pass by the vendors, but all purchase is all optional, and the guide or vendor will never force you to buy anything. In general the trip is very nice and chilled. Highly recommend to people who wants to have a peek and relaxing experience to Mekong Delta.

      It was a one day private tour from our hotel in district 1. Jayden who was our guide for the day had arrived ahead of time and we found him waiting patiently in the lobby when we went downstairs. He was extremely pleasant, friendly and very informative. We learnt a lot about the local culture, history and everything else from him throughout our trip. Everything was well planned and well arranged including a great Vietnamese lunch - even our diet restrictions were accomodated. Overall a wonderful day. We're lucky to have found a good friend here in Vietnam. Thank you Jayden!! Would definitely want more tours with this company and with him as our tour guide in the future! Highly recommended!

      We had a day long lovely trip to Mekong delta with our young guide, Jayden, who was very informative about both the Vietnamese and the Chinese religions, languages and their way of life. We are very much pleased and happy with this trip. The pickup was prompt as scheduled and the experience of tasting local food, Sampa ride and the trail through the fruit farm was superb! Our entire tour was very smooth. Definitely would do more trips with them, all thanks to the excellent tour guide Jayden. Definitely recommend this tour!

      We had Bao as our guide! Could’t ask for a beter and funnier guy. I really enjoyed the visit to the locals and our guide explaining everything with sometimes a personal story. Thank you Bao!!!

      Hele leuke uitstap, zalig op het water. Bao was een super toffe en aangename gids. Hij kent zijn vak . De kokossnoepjes waren heerlijk. Zeker een uitstap om met kinderen te doen. Zeker als je een echte boa slang kan vasthouden .

      Our tour guide Alex was amazing! Filled with knowledge and dad jokes - what a legend! We were picked up straight from our hotel, the limo van was very comfy and air conditioned, the candy at coconut island is delicious - definitely worth the try! Not so sure about the snake wine :) Alex went above and beyond to help us out, one mention that I’m a big avocado fan, and he had arranged for an avocado smoothie to be delivered to us at the end of our trip! So kind & would highly recommend Alex for any tour!
