Return Details

Returns to original departure point
In the morning, your guide meets you in your hotel lobby for transfer to Ho Chi Minh City’s central pier, where you depart by luxury speedboat for the lush, green tributaries of the Mekong Delta.

Enjoy a light breakfast of sandwiches or pastries, tropical fruit and Vietnamese coffee onboard your boat during the 2-hour journey to Can Gio. Once the target of chemical warfare, the UNESCO-designated Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, located south of Ho Chi Minh City, is teeming with wildlife and biodiversity in lush mangrove forests.

Make several scenic stops on your way to the reserve. Take in the bustling Can Giuoc Market, where you can sample local fruits and get great photo ops. Then cruise past a tapestry of green paddy fields, tropical fruit trees and water palms before moving into a landscape of mangroves.

Your guide explains the features of Can Gio, one of Vietnam’s most important ecosystems, where more than 52 flora species and 200 fauna species live. Visit traditional fishing hamlets, then cruise the tranquil waters of Giant Bat Lagoon in a rowboat. Your guide leads a short trek through the mangroves to a private riverside location where have a traditional Vietnamese lunch.

After lunch, head to Vam Sat Eco Park. There, you might spot gibbons and monkeys, try crab fishing and go bird watching for local and migratory bird species. See a crocodile reserve (and feed them via a fishing rod if you wish) to learn about the once-plentiful crocs that were hunted to near extinction. Alternatively, take another mangrove jungle walk with your guide.

Depart Can Gio in the afternoon, returning to Ho Chi Minh City by boat. At the central pier, transfer to your air-conditioned vehicle for drop-off at your hotel.

seeing the crocodiles and the monkeys had to be the highlight but close behind were the houses built to harvest nest

I was picked up at my hotel on time and taken to the dock to board my boat. I met the guide there and he impressed me right away. throughout the day he proved to be an most excellent guide, he was knowledgeable about the area, both natural and man made. he described to us the changing nature of the river along with Vietnamese culture. I feel I learned a lot from him and will leave Vietnam with a better understanding of it people because of him

A Fabulous Day out

I highly recommend this tour, especially our guides and crew - Henry, Thy, Tu and Be - were super!!! They thought of everything and anything we may need, were so friendly, helpful and super informative about all the various things we experienced. They took care of us so well and made this a wonderful day out. I would especially recommend this to those that do not want to do the regular run of the mill tours and don't want to be packed in with a large number of tourists.

Best tour of our visit - but take binoculars if you can

Really, really good tour. Visit to market was fascinating and gave you a real feel for the real culture of Vietnam. Feeding the crocodiles was exciting and unique. Monkeys were great and fun to watch. Seeing such large bats was an experience but for that and birds would really have benefited from binoculars. Kept us very well fed and watered through out the trip and looked after us very well. Whole family thought it the best trip we did in Vietnam

A memorable day away from the city

A nice trip that combined both a tour of the area around Ho Chi Minh as well as some up close and personal time with nature. You'll get to see the City itself from a different viewpoint than on the city streets and then head out into the nature reserve to spend time with monkeys, birds and crocodiles. Cap it off with an excellent meal before a return to the city. We had a fairly small group compared to the potential limit, so we had ample time at each location along with real direct interaction with our excellent guide, Henry. Nothing felt too rushed or hurried. We also had more than enough time at the crocodile feeding portion of the trip as opposed to the experiences of other reviewers and were each able to feed multiple crocs multiple times. If anything we maybe had a little too much time with the bats and at the bird sanctuary. Maybe if you were really into bats or birds it would have been more enjoyable but I personally found those parts of the tour to drag a little.

Back to nature

We chose this tour as we wanted to see some of Vietnam's nature and to be in a small group only. Picked up by speedboat on the river we were served fresh fruit and cold soft drinks as the boat travelled along the river and then a canal, allowing us to see the people of Saigon. We stopped at a local market where our tour guide told us about the local cuisine and foods they eat. We then went to a mangrove forest where we were taken by small canoes across a lake to see a colony of fruit bats. Looking closer to the shore you saw crabs with purple claws holding onto the mangrove roots. Then off to dinner where, beforehand we went fishing for crocodiles! As well as this we saw wild monkeys being fed before a lovely lunch. Then back to the boat before the trip back and then transfer to our hotel. Throughout our guide was great, very knowledgable and his team kept us supplied with local food which they prepared on board. An excellent trip.
