The tour was very nice and contained everything one can hope for in a day tour. The guide was extraordinary in his friendliness and service manor. Ben was our guide and I would say that he was the one who made the tour a 5 star. David

This is the best tour I have ever tried - mainly because of the amazing guide Ele. He was super friendly, had great English and told us a lot about Vietnam. Expect a lot of boat rides, visiting a coconut factory, opportunity to hold a snake, lunch and a rowing boat ride which is picturesque. Bus is comfortable and everything was punctual. Our best day in Vietnam so far!

Very well organized tour! Our guide, Duc, was really knowledgeable and entertaining. He shared his own life experiences with us and was a pleasure to be around. The group size was just nice at 13 people, with ample space on the boat. It was a really nice change of environment outside of the bustle of Saigon. We were also provided with water and coconut juice at several intervals. Would highly recommend this tour and company!

Really well organized tour. Every time we stopped with the boat they offered us to try some food: fruit snacks, tea with honey, coconut candy and lunch. In several occasions we changed from the big boat to the rowing boats, one of the highlight of the tour. We also had the opportunity to hold a snake !

Very disappointing
Nils_C
, Apr 2022
In general the trip was very disappointing and felt like a tourist trap. We got picked up 20 minutes later from our hotel then informed, which was ok due to the traffic can be quite bad. It took another 25 minutes until we collected the whole group. In the case you are the first person who will be picked up, you will be around 45 minutes in the bus before the trip starts. It takes around 2 hours before the arrive at the first stop (Pagoda) Please remind your tour guide if you have any food allergies even you have mentioned it in your booking. The tour guide was quite moody and kind of aggressive if you say something which he does not agree. At every stop along the tour (f.e. Honey tea drinking) people try to sell you something. At the lunch place they have several animals in cages which was quite sad due to the cages were obviously really too small for all the animals. If you have a heart for animals, I would highly not recommend to do this tour. In my opinion, there are much better tours.

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!
