Firstly, a big thank you to Ele who made the day so good. You get to visits the Mekong and surrounding village islands, where you have the opportunity to listen to traditional folk music and try local delicacies. Afterwards you see the local Chocolate, honey, snake wine (an apparent aphrodisiac, but I’ve never felt less horny in my life after trying it) and coconut manufacturers, and here you have the option to purchase some produce. Some of the locals try and push you to buy something but you can say no - we never felt any real pressure to buy anything yet still bought some honey and nut bars which were so good. Along the way you get the classic Mekong boat ride, through the coconut village, on the traditional boat. Again, at least in our experience, the drivers just said ‘money’ at us when they returned us back, but this is again optional and we just ignored then. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable experience that was well worth the money!
The tour was really entertaining, you get to see so many different things while on it and not a single moment is wasted. You get to know more about Vietnamese culture and their way of living. Out tour guide was Kang and he did an amazing job here and always made sure all of us were doing good. And he shared all his knowledge with us as well. Definitely will recommend it.
A full experience tour! In addition to being on the Mekong river and seeing the Vinh Trang pagoda, you get to taste local food and drinks, go through the local town and see the people. Our guide, Alex was wonderful - very friendly, full of information and entertaining - not a dull moment. Great price for everything you get. Definitely recommend this tour.
We loved the entire day. Although sever upsets were touristy we did not care. We had a lot of cultural experiences and had a great time. While we did not spend too much time in any one place, I did not feel like we were rushed. I recommend this experience.
Wonderful tour to the Mekong Delta. Our tour guide, Sang, was very friendly and knowledgeable. The time at each stop was plenty and the whole experience was very enjoyable! I would definitely recommend!
