What people are saying about My Tho

The overall experience is quite formula driven with a lot of tourists but still worth it. The guide Dominic was outstanding with extreme knowledge of everything you can imagine. We got (driven by our questions) a thorough history lesson of Vietnam on the 2 hour car ride to the delta.

Beautiful experience. The rain made the atmosphere suggestive. Our guide was exceptional to me: kind, friendly but also very professional. We recommend it.
