Know More about this tour

Drive for 2.5 hours and arrive at the city of My Tho by air-conditioned mini coach. A former naval base, My Tho is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. The area is the final destination of the Mekong River which winds its way through Tibet, China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam.

An incredibly fertile region, its prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output. Life for villagers in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta. People are more likely to transport by river than by road.

Upon arrival into My Tho you'll board a private boat and cruise along the Mekong River. Your local guide will take you to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where you'll sample tropical fruit. Continue to another island in the Mekong Delta and learn more about another cottage industry, coconut candy. Your local guide will take you to a coconut candy factory and explain the process of making this sweet.

You'll also have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about the traditional lifestyles, culture and customs of people who call the Delta their home. Continue by Xe Loi (motorized cart) to a bee farm where you'll transfer to a smaller rowing boat allowing you to get deeper into the smaller canals of the Delta.

Sample local Mekong cuisine at the Diem Phuong Restaurant. After lunch you'll return to My Tho for the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.

  • A very knowledgeable guide Nhi thank you so much! Made this tour really amazing. From a bicycle ride through dragon fruit and rice paddy farms, to coconut honey makers to the delta the tour was well paced, informative and interesting. Our host was fantastic, keeping us alert and entertained throughout

  • Best Tour Guide we had in Vietnam.Our tour guide's name was Mai. She was the best tour guide I've ever had. She was knowledgeable, kind, sweet and thoughtful. She made sure we got to do everything we wanted and was pleasant to have around. After our tour was over, I was sad to see her go. I highly recommend!!

  • Enjoyed the trip as a whole. Good fun and the guide was friendly.

  • perfect services.Great tour guide .Excellent value for money

  • appalling! this tour is just a commercial venture to get t you to buy things. the tour guide slept on the way to Mekong delta, had no interest in educating us about Vietnam and the custom in the delta. she then cut the tour short and slept all the way back. will not recommend this tour to anyone. it has the potential to be an excellent tour.

  • I went on the one day Mekong Delta tour and was very satisfied with the services on this company. Our guide Pham Xuân Tháo spoke very good English and her explanations were very clear. She is obviously an experienced tour guide. Her assistant Huyên was very good too.The minivan driver was safe and punctual.I enjoyed the variety of the activities during the day. The Vietnamese lunch was excellent. I also appreciated the small group size 12. Overall a very good experience.
