Overview

The Mekong Delta is the southernmost region of Vietnam. It is often referred to as the rice bowl of Vietnam as it produces three harvests per year. The fertile Mekong Delta is also famous for its tropical fruits and flowers. The delta area marks the end of a 4,500km journey made by the Mekong River after having traveled through six countries. M Tho is one of the biggest cities in the Mekong Delta, dotted with serene Buddhist pagodas and surrounded by dense rivers. Many great destinations for visitors have been established by the local government and private companies, serving thousands of tourists every day. We recommend this tour for those who want to get an overview of the Mekong Delta for a few delightful hours.

    The whole day was really well organized from start to finished. Good communication from the company and clear instructions. The best thing however, was our guide Dana! she was funny, well informed, well connected and generally made our day well worth it! If I could give Dana more than 5 stars I would - she was fantastic

    The company was able to accommodate me and my husband even though it was a last minute plan. UY was our tour guide. He was very nice, warm, knowledgeable and funny. We highly recommend them. And you’re lucky if UY is your tour guide (see below wearing white cap). He was great!

    Enjoyed a low key day in the Mekong Delta, picked up at hotel and shown around by the always excellent Slim Jim. Recommended.

    Fantastic trip! Dana is the best guide we have ever had. Comfortbale and safe transport, amazing views and perfect food - that are the reasons why it is worth to pay for this trip

    We really enjoyed our tour through the Mekong Delta with Slim Jim! He gave us great insights into the life in the Mekong Delta! Would 100% book again!

    We had an excellent guide which made the day for us. She earned the five stars. The visits themselves were (of course) over-touristed and the lunch was so-so at best. But the well-informed guide Ms Buyen made up for all that.

    We did the Sa Dec Flower Village day trip. Our guide Uy was great. Very informative and gave us a great intro to Vietnam. We enjoyed being off the beaten path and the boat ride through the Xeo Quyt Forest. The flower village itself was a bit disappointing. We only stopped at one flower vendor to take pictures. Would have liked more time here and to learn more about the flowers.

    It was a great experience for me and our family especially my 11 year old daughter. We had a chance to see the river, honey farm and how coconut candy are made. The guide was funny and friendly, too.
