The trip to the Mekong Delta was very interesting thanks to our guide Thong. One of the highlights was the Cai Rang floating market, which is still authentic. However, longer journeys by car must be taken into account on these 2 days, the roads are good. On our return we were brought back near the old hotel, the new address in HCMC was not suitable for the chauffeur. The Giude organized a grave taxi for us.

Great tour, great guide!

Very well organised and interesting tour. Our guide, Huong, was very entertaining and a real pleasure to spend the time with. Our lunch on the first day was superb. Highly recommended and good value.
