Know More about this tour

After your private guide meets you in the early morning at your hotel, travel by air-conditioned vehicle about two hours southwest of Ho Chi Minh City to the Mekong Delta My Tho, considered the heart of the entire Mekong delta region

On your way, stop at the Vinh Trang Temple, a Buddhist site featuring ancient bronze statues and a colonial history. Pause along the banks of the river Tien, the northern artery of the Mekong River.

Take a boat trip on the Mekong River to a workshop where handmade crafts and sweets are produced from coconuts. A short ride on a horse carriage brings you to one of the many nearby orchards, where you taste homemade honey tea, savor fresh seasonal fruits, and enjoy traditional live music.

Stop at the home of a local family, and follow your guide through their garden to sample fresh-picked fruit from their trees. Then join the family for a tasting of home-brewed longan wine, followed by a lesson on how to catch an elephant ear fish. Your host cooks up the freshly caught fish for your lunch, accompanied by other Mekong Delta dishes such as fresh river shrimp, deep fried spring rolls, clay pot pork, soup, rice and dessert.

After lunch, hop on a bike for a leisurely ride through the countryside, soaking up the rural ambiance as you pass small villages and farms. Alternatively, you can relax in a hammock if you don't want to ride. Mid-afternoon, step back in the boat and cruise along the canals until you reach the spot where you return to your tour vehicle. Your day trip ends with the drive back to Ho Chi Minh City for hotel drop-off.

  • The trip to Mekong River cruise with company was incredible but a bit tired of cycling tour. Recommend anyway

  • Throughout the tour our guide Henry was so knowledgeable, helpfull and able to answer any questions asked of him. Lunch at Mien Tay Riverside was plentiful. This is great way to explore the Mekong Delta

  • Very good day to experience the incredibly lush beauty of the Mekong Delta. Our guide David was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I loved the cycle ride and lunch was amazing. A great value day out

  • The trip from Saigon to My Tho was great to see the local countryside by bike and found the route to be really charming, with stops in villages and trails that passed through fields and alongside river. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and well-organized and the lunch at local restaurant also relaxing. Highly recommend for Mekong Day Tour with Bravo Indochina Tours

  • we enjoy the boat trip and the scenery. our tour guild nice but I feel he doesn't know how to create a funny atmosphere for the clients. I really looking for picking the fruit and catch a fish as mention on the web... but it did not happen on our trip. Bike around the village is really fun. anyway not a bad tour for us.

  • This is your best choice for Mekong day trip. It includes a variety of boat trips, various tastings, some culture, river cruising and a horse ride, cycling, as well as an excellent lunch. We can say it was a good day out and certainly very good value for money.
