Tips (optional)
Meet a driver at your District 1 hotel in Ho Chi Minh City for an 8am departure, then board a climate-controlled mini coach for the 2.5-hour drive to the Mekong Delta.

Upon arrival in the port city of My Tho, transfer to a Mekong River boat, navigating a broad waterway that links the Tibetan Plateau with the South China Sea. Step off the boat at a lush, tropical island filled with fruit trees, where you’ll try the season’s freshest produce, then visit another island to see local production of coconut candy.

Pause at a series of local villages, learning about culture and daily life in the Mekong Delta along the way, and make a trip to a bee farm by xe loi, or motorized cart. Continue in a small, non-motorized rowing boat that’s ideal for navigating the Delta’s winding canals, where you’ll get a glimpse of the traditional houses that cluster at the edge of the water.

Stop for a classic Mekong Delta lunch at Diem Phuong Restaurant, then make the return trip to My Tho, where the mini coach will meet you for transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City. This 8-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Horrendous

If you are a real traveller, who wants to see the local life as it is and gain the understanding of the culture, don’t do this trip. We were hugely disappointed: we saw the delta for about 20 mins, and spent between 30-40 at each of a number of factories/shops, selling overpriced stuff, where you learn absolutely nothing about the actual life/culture/history/you name it. Also, paying $4.5 for a bottle of water at one of those places was truly outrageous, where at most of the tourist places you can get two bottles for $1. I would give no stars if there was an option.

Best Tour Guide we had in Vietnam.Our tour guide's name was Mai. She was the best tour guide I've ever had. She was knowledgeable, kind, sweet and thoughtful. She made sure we got to do everything we wanted and was pleasant to have around. After our tour was over, I was sad to see her go. I highly recommend!!

appalling! this tour is just a commercial venture to get t you to buy things. the tour guide slept on the way to Mekong delta, had no interest in educating us about Vietnam and the custom in the delta. she then cut the tour short and slept all the way back. will not recommend this tour to anyone. it has the potential to be an excellent tour.

I went on the one day Mekong Delta tour and was very satisfied with the services on this company. Our guide Pham Xuân Tháo spoke very good English and her explanations were very clear. She is obviously an experienced tour guide. Her assistant Huyên was very good too.The minivan driver was safe and punctual.I enjoyed the variety of the activities during the day. The Vietnamese lunch was excellent. I also appreciated the small group size 12. Overall a very good experience.
