What people are saying about Tien Giang Province

It was an overall great experience. Our tour guide, Big David, was superb. He spoke very good English, was very engaging, and made good jokes that kept us entertained throughout the trip. He was also very knowledgeable about the culture and history of the area, and we learned a lot from him. One of the highlights of the tour was the biking trip in the countryside by a small river. It was a great way to see the local way of life, and we got to see some beautiful scenery along the way. The overnight hotel was also excellent and we had the chance to explore the city by night after our arrival. However, we were a bit disappointed with the floating market. It was packed with tourists, and there were more tourists than traders. Despite this, overall, I would rate the tour a 4.5/5. The tour guide, Big David, was fantastic, and the biking tour was a highlight. The only downside was the over-crowded floating market.

Great trip! The guide Tú was informative and authentic. The selection of activities achieved well the objective of getting deep into the Mekong way of life. There were a few minor drawings as well, for instance the bus ride out and back was very long. Additionally, the guided tour path was highly paved so as to question what was real vs created as a facade to please jet lagged tourists. I would recommend to any first timers!

Learning about the Mekong Delta and how it provides for the people who live in the area was amazing. We had such a funny and knowledgeable guide who made the experience that much better.

Over all very fun and no hassle tour especially my husband has disability. The tour guide was very accommodating and very knowledgeable with our questions.

Our guide was super cute, the tour was nice and cherfull.
