About
It would be a miss if visiting Vietnam without having a stop at Mekong Delta, the agricultural hub of the Southern of Vietnam with rice fields, coconut palms, fruit orchards and sugarcane groves. Moreover, the highlight of Mekong Delta is originally spontaneous floating markets. From the early morning, a countless number of boats and sampans will gather here and criss-cross the landscape as arteries, making the whole area more lively and stunning than ever. These floating markets open all day and night that you have a lot of time to explore the local's agricultural life and how they trade their goods directly from boat to boat.

Great time with great guide
Nov 2019
The private tour is perfect for family. Our guide Loi was professional and patient, given my parents are old, so he try to find quiet route with relatively less walk, very informative and responsive. Everything is well planned and at our own pace. def strongly recommended!

Great privite tour with Hannah
It was a great tour with our guide Hannah. She picked us from our hotel on the time. She even came early. We were going first to visit Pagoda where you can see Buddha temples and then our journey continued to visit some islands. We took the boat till the islands. We had a nice trip with tuk tuk. I appreciate that Hannah choose for us the tuk tuk instead the horse cart, because the horses looked very sad and it was hot outside. We really enjoyed also the short trip with the rowing boat. On these islands you can see also how they are making the coconut candies. We also had a nice lunch at the end of our journey. Every part of our tour was amazing and we strongly recommend Hannah for a privite tour. She is really a great guide for the tour with a good sense of humor.

Mekong Delta Tour
Long was our local guide for the day. We were picked up from our hotel in Saigon around 8am and then took the 2 hour or so drive to our first stop, Vinh Trăng Pagoda. Beautiful, peaceful temple. We then took a boat to an island where we sampled local fruit and listened to some locals sing traditional folk music and play their traditional musical instruments. This was really nice to see. From there, we took a horse drawn carriage to our next stop where we sampled fresh cacao and checked out the honey bee farm. After this, we went to the traditional coconut candy workshop and got to sample the candy while they were still fresh and warm. Really sticky and chewy like Taffy with a great coconut taste. From here, we rode on a traditional sampan (row boat). Very beautiful and peaceful ride under the trees. After getting dropped off at another island, we walked a little bit through the countryside lined with lots of beautiful tropical trees. We then went to lunch at the Mekong Rest Stop. Food was just ok there. Bbq sticks were served cold. I’m guessing they prepare the meals for tour groups ahead of time.

It did rain heavily at some points in our trip but, that’s ok. Can’t help the weather. Also, travelling with my elderly father required us to take some breaks from walking and Long was very kind, accommodating and patient. He was also very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining everything to us. Overall, great cultural experience and made for a good day.

Oh, and Ms. Stella, whom we booked our 2 tours with, was great as well. Easy and speedy communication with her over email. She made it a breeze. Thank you!

Mekong Delta with tour guide Long
Jul 2019 • Family
We had an awesome day out today on the Mekong Delta with our tour guide Long. Long was great fun, full of knowledge having grown up in the area, and did a great job to accommodate the vegans in our group for lunch. We would definitely recommend joining Long's 'tour group family' for a day on the Mekong Delta!
