What to expect
Begin with pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, then travel to Ben Tre in a private, air-conditioned vehicle, a roughly 2-hour drive. Upon arrival in Ben Tre, board a small boat to visit local factories, a coconut processing workshop, and a house where traditional mats are woven. Take a walking tour of a small village—this is the perfect time to get a feel for daily life in the Mekong Delta—then hop a xe-lôi, a motorized rickshaw, to a riverside restaurant where you can refuel over a Delta-style lunch. Ride a bike through the fields around the village, then board a sampan sightseeing tour along the picturesque canals. Return to shore, where you’ll visit a Cao Dai temple: this monotheistic religion was founded in southern Vietnam in the 1920s, and has brightly colored architecture and artwork. At the end of your time in Ben Tre, make the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Great day on the Mekong Delta!
We had such a great day today, Jason was one of the best tour guides we’ve had in our 3 weeks of travelling through Vietnam. He was very informative and helpful. There are so many companies out there offering very similar things but I would definitely recommend this company and Jason especially 😀

What an amazing day!
This tour is the best way to know about local people. You can touch with you hands what they do, what they eat and how they live. Enjoying coconuts, local fruits and much more..Discovering Mekong Delta by foot, by bike and by boat. Mr Roy was the best guide ever! Funny and prepared.

We enjoyed this day tour very much with the very good arrangement of various kinds of transportation including riding boats, sampan, and electric rickshaw. Our guide was very friendly, cheerful, attentive, and knowledgeable about the local culture and history.

Full day Mekong delta tour with Roy
Jun 2019 • Friends
We were picked up at our Hotel around 8 by Roy and the driver. Luckily it was only the two of us. Then 2 hours in the minibus to Halong. Then motor boat into the area, snacks in a coconut farm, biking, big lunch, paddle boat and then back to motor boat and minibus back to hotel around 16
Very good and interesting day with Roy who speak excellent English and is very well educated and informative about all matters about Vietnam. We were discussing most issues almost all times
Very happy we toke this a little more expensive quality tour than a 'Cheap Charlie'. If you have questions, he can answer anything and we recommend him and the company highly

First off I would like to say that the booking process was very easy! I was able to pay my deposit via PayPal (easy peasy) my emails were returned very quickly and they sent a confirmation email the day before regarding our pickup locations and details. Finding a company that communicates this well and quickly makes trip planning very easy.

We just got back from our tour to the Mekong Delta with our tour guide DUC! From the moment we were picked up DUC was full of information and had an amazing attitude! We learned so much about. We were never left questioning what we were doing next.

I enjoyed every moment of the tour, from the bike ride, the tuck tuck and boat down the river.
My only regret is not booking a two day private tour. Ooooh well!

Myself and my friend are vegetarian and we were provided a customized lunch to meet our diet.

I highly recommend the tour and this company and if you get Duc as your tour guide you are very lucky!

Above and beyond our expectations
This wasn’t our first tour in Ho Chi Min, but certainly the best. Our tour guide, Jun was very knowledgeable, spoke perfect English, proactive and extremely enthusiastic. He volunteered to take pictures of us, that ended up being some of the best shots from our Vietnam trip.
My husband and I are independent travelers. We hire our tours once we arrive to our destination; and if we were to do it all over again this tour is one that we will be glad to repeat. It was worth it.

Meeting delta with Lockie is a must!
We were lucky to be the only family on the tour so had Lockie to ourselves for the day. He was a wonderful guide and just great with the kids who are easily bored and distracted. They loved the tour, even the bus ride especially when Lockie pulled out his microphone for karaoke! Big hit and made the 2 hour journey go much faster.

A fabulous day trip from Saigon, would definitely recommend especially for kids. Although lunch was a bit challenging for them - too much sea food (great for adults though!) so pack a cut lunch for fussy eaters.

Otherwise, couldn’t fault the day at all!

The best of the best !
A close friend of mine who’s traveled to Vietnam many times highly recommended this tour group and she couldn’t have been more right !

Jun was my tour guide and he was bloody incredible !!!

He was professional, friendly, incredibly knowledgeable across the board and was full of heaps of very interesting facts and figures !
His English was fantastic and I could not recommend him and the tour enough !

I even went back for more to visit the Cu Chi tunnels and was lucky enough to have Jun again ! - I was so glad too as he was once again fantastic. (And a great photo taker)

Highly recommend this tour group for all tours !

Just Fantastic
Mar 2018 • Family
Just went on this yesterday and wanted to write a review, brilliant from start to finis. Juiy our guide was brilliant from beginning to end, very attentive and full of information.

We saw far more of the work carried out on the delta than we thought, from mat and hat making, brick making from the delta clay, to coconut everything, fantastic sweets and drinks!

We went on every type of river transport possible and the bike ride was easy (my wife struggled a little with her direction LOL, but again Juiy was very patient.

Highly recommended.
