About
Explore the Mekong Delta on a speedboat tour from Ho Chi Minh City, following the Saigon River into a network of canals. Stop to visit villages, a Cao Dai temple, and more, including a chef-prepared lunch at a pagoda. Traveling by speedboat means you can visit the Mekong Delta directly from Ho Chi Minh City, trading a long bus trip for more time on the water.

Good experience! Les Rives
Feb 2021 • Friends
Kha was an excellent, knowledgeable and very entertaining guide for Les Rives on the speedboat trip around The Mekong Delta. It was a varied and enjoyable day with quality facilities making us feel very welcome. The speedboat is nice, well maintained and tidy. Have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this trip. Thanks Kha and his team for this great day.

Awesome tour guides
Mar 2020 • Couples
Did the Mekong Delta tour and the Jeep/Saigon river tour. Both guides were awesome. Clearly enthusiastic about their country and history. They answered all our questions and more. Really appreciate the thought and attention that went into the tours. I learned a lot about the country, its people, and its history.

Wonderful Day on the Delta
Feb 2020
We had a wonderful experience seeing the Delta by River, much better than a long bus ride. The trip as described here by Les Rives is exactly how our day went. Henry is an excellent guide and made our day incredibly memorable!

Fantastic day trip
We did the Mekong by speedboat trip as we didn’t want to spend hours travelling in a bus and we were so glad we did. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the dock where we boarded our boat. Henry was our guide and there were 3 other crew members. All did a fabulous job. The tour is exactly what’s it says, we were offered a light breakfast, drinks, fruit along the way. The poverty along the river edge was very confronting and there is a lot of rubbish everywhere. We visited a local homestead, walked through the fields, a short rowboat ride, visited a local market, temple, orphanage although there were no children there as the schools are all closed, and finished up with lunch at a Vietnamese family’s house. The lunch was delicious and plentiful. Plenty of opportunities for toilet stops. Enjoyed more fruit on return trip. A fabulous day out. Highly recommend

See the real mekong Delta without traffic jams
Feb 2020
Picked up and brought to the river quay within a few minutes so no traffic problems.
The guide was excellent in advising us what we might expect to see and how the experience would differ from the 'regular' day trips to the delta.
Along the river you see how some of the poorest of the residents live and how the river traffic flows through the city.
Great on-shore experiences and the lunch stop was a real highlight with excellent choice and quantity of food and local whiskey.
Great for people who might be nervous of traveling the roads in Vietnam or for those looking for a brief but interesting encounter with river life.

What a remarkable day spent with Hang, she shared her vast knowledge of the Mekong Delta and Vietnam with us. Sights, sound and smells that really took your breath away. Prompt collection, communication and service. Trip did exactly what it said it would. More food then we needed, came away amazed, full and very happy. Highly recommend
