  • We did not get off to a good start, the booking confirmation stated pick up 30-60mins before the tour start at 7:30am and we were picked up at 8am. We already thought we are not getting picked up at all
    The tour guide was definitely not fluent in English and made understanding somewhat difficult.

    Once we arrived in Cai Be there was no market activity at all. It was fabulous to see the Mekong and the boats around but advertising the tour to visit Cai Be floating market is absolutely wrong. On the way to Cai Be we had a coffee stop which all contributed to arriving there way past the floating market.

    This tour was meant to be our highlight of the trip but unfortunately it was were very disappointing indeed.
