Die Reise in das Mekongdelta war dank unseres Guide Thong sehr interessant. Eine der Höhepunkte war der schwimmende Markt von Cai Rang, der noch authentisch ist. Es sind an diesen 2 Tagen aber längere Fahrten mit dem Auto zu berücksichtigen, die Straßen sind gut. Bei der Rückkehr wurden wir in die Nähe des alten Hotel zurückgebracht, die neue Adresse in HCMC war dem Chauffeur nicht passend. Der Giude hat uns ein Grab-Taxi organisiert.

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.
