What people are saying about My Tho

The tour was amazing and covered everything we wanted to see. Our Guide Tony and driver Duc was very informative, eager and passionate about answering any questions we had. I feel the time we had on this tour was just right and we got to see it all. I would highly recommend booking this tour. The only criticism I would say is we booked the 5 star option for hotels and I don't think that hotel deserves a 5 star rating. Its near a Karaoke bar and because our room window was broken it was very noisy at night.

We had a wonderful 2 day tour of the Mekong Delta. Due to the pandemic, there were relatively few tourists at that time, so we had our guide to ourselves. Nhi (Amy) was super nice, very funny and showed us and explained a lot of things and answered every question. Since the tour from Saigon includes some driving time, we also had a lot of opportunity to find out about the correct pronunciation of many Vietnamese words. Thanks for that! :-) Again any time!

It was a really interesting tour, seeing the floating markets was the most interesting activity for me. Our guide Ben told us many interesting stories about life and people in Vietnam and we could ask everything we wanted to know. Tasting all the fruits was amazing!

Very pleasant excursion Very varied. With a very colorful guide who told us a part of the history of Vietnam with his humor which delighted us The fish market has 5 hrs in the morning to get to the boat which will take us to the Cai Rang market .... an experiment

Tu was an amazing your guide. We loved exploring the Mekong Delta. He was very informative and gave us a great insight into the culture. Thanky-you Tu for making our experience more enjoyable
