Comfortable, fun and laid back tour

The transport from Saigon to My Tho area was pretty nice. Small lux van with very comfy seats. Not all seats are equal though. Because of the arrangement, not all seats can recline, so pick wisely if you want that :) Great AC. They have a USB outlet for every seat and WiFi on the transport worked ok. Kevin, our guide, was great. He tried his best to keep up the energy of the group. Everyone on our tour cooperated with times and meeting points so it was smooth for us. The attractions are up to expectations. Note that bathrooms on the Mekong delta island are just ok. All in all, a great way to spend the day. You are not running from place to place, but it never gets too boring for too long before you are on the move again.

I was traveling alone but there were 17 of us on this tour. Our guide Fa was awesome! He was full of information and answers to all the questions asked. He also made sure everything ran smoothly and we never had to wait for transportation from one place to the next! It was a fun day with a fun group!

Good Tour Poor Guide
Nigel_B
, Feb 2020
We found the content of the tour very good. The individual experiences were very interesting. However, no detailed information regarding the content was provided. For example, the day included a 45 minute cycle ride on rough dirt tracks through woods and at times along busy roads. This was enjoyable but might not be suitable if you are not confident on a bike and might be unable to keep up with the front of the group and the teenagers thinking it was a competition. The guide from VIP Tours on this tour (26th February 2020) we found quite poor. He gave very little information on the various sites during the day and some of the organisation was poor for example the free bottle of water was only handed out of the way back!! Having done a 45 minute cycle ride in 35 degree heat the water would have been more useful before giving it to us 3 hours later. Please note when having lunch drinks are not included.

Ms. Vu was a very awesome guide. Very nice positive energy and extraordinary english skills (it was very good to listen to). She provided us with a lot of information about history and the people living in Mekong Delta. I can 100% recommend the trip with her if you only have Time for 1 day. I hope you will get Ms Vu as a guide ;)

Very interesting tour, with luxury van. Betty our tour guide and Minh our driver are an excellent combination. They showed us lots of interesting things, especially the tour through the delta in a small rowing boat is worth the experience.

Wonderful cruise and bike riding experience

We had a wonderful day. When booking this day trip, we decided to take the non-touristy choice which included the Mekong delta river cruise after which we licked up bikes and enjoyed a terrific two hours bike ride through tiny villages, thru dragon fruit farms, rice fields and roving paths. After all the touring and visits thru markets and shopping area in other cities, we felt this bike ride adventure would provide us from a welcome change. We so enjoyed the group, our tour leader was amazing and decided we had definitely made an excellent tour choice.
