I would recommend the trip if you enjoy driving busses. The Mekong Delta and the floating market were really pretty but the tour itself was more like a sales event. Unfortunately, the tour guide shared little information. The hotel rooms were moldy and cockroaches kept us company during our stay. So overall my friends and I were a little disappointed from the trip.
