This tour was a disappointment, as I felt 90% of the tour we were taken to local business who tried to sell us various products. You only get about 10 minutes on the rowing boat on the canal, the rest of the tour is not really worth it.our guide was sick, so didn’t interact with us most of the day, he slept for over an hour in a hammock at lunch, we didn’t know what we were eating, or what the plan was. Very disappointing!
When your tour guide tells passengers that the Vietnamese worship white people’s skin color and they don’t want to be dark whilethere are people of color aboard, makes for a very uncomfortable tour. The tour guides need to “know their audience” in this case quite obvious before making such comments.
I did a half day tour. The tour guide didn’t know much. Took us to places that seemed insignificant. Fell asleep at times. Pushed us to tip everyone for everything. For example we sat down and ate fruit as paid for upon purchase yet he wanted us to pay again. We were there for ten minutes so it made no sense. The river rides were good but that was about it. I heard later that you need to do a two day tour minimum. But what this tour bragged about was not included in my tour.
We had a nice time with other tourists who came from different countries. Our guide Fully speaks decent English and he was always willing to learn. We expect more war memory but bit surprised by all the sales of Mekong area's products. For our generation Mekong Delta is a place of sad sentiment and it was only our hope to pray for all the souls both Vietnamese, Americans and others.
This tour was extremely well-planned and well-executed. The guide 10 voice very professional and information given the participants was more then expected .
The lunch was extremely good and we have not had the pleasure of having a lunch of this type in our whole visit to Vietnam.
This tour is a must in Vietnam and is highly recommended
We were a group of 5 friends in a total of only 11 and all found this trip to be a highlight of our visit to Vietnam. We especially enjoyed the warmth,friendliness and knowledge of our local guide Bich. Definitely a trip worth doing
