    Ben Tre Museum
    Stop: 4 hours
    8.00AM: Customer pickup begins in around District 1 before traveling approximately 2 hours to Ben Tre (The kingdom of Coconuts). On arrival at Hàm Luông pier, aboard a boat to start your sightseeing cruise along the Mekong waterways, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the low-lying coconut trees which line the banks of both sides of the narrow tributaries. Visit a local authentic brick making factory and get a fascinating glimpse of how the Vietnamese people carve a living out of the Mekong, using clay from the river and rice husk from the fields. The other villages you will visit are the coconut processing workshop and mat-weaving house, here you will witness local family’s working together to produce products for the local market. After a short walk through a Mekong village, board a motorized rickshaw (xe-lam) for a rememberable journey to a riverside restaurant for a fulfilling lunch and a short break. After lunch, before taking a cruise through the canals onboard a Sampan (Mekong rowboat), Banana and coconut trees overhang the waterways to create a calm and serene atmosphere. On the journey back, stop for a short visit at the Vinh Trang pagoda before continuing to HCM city.

It was interesting with varied transport. Take small change with you for tips. Brick factory and Honey tour was superfluous. Guide was good. Lovely meal eating elephant ear fish in lovely surroundings.

Mekong Delta full day tour with Jack
Feb 2020
We had a great trip to the Mekong Delta with Jack (Thanh) on 16th of Feb, who is really knowledgeable and enthusiastic!!

We went to lots of stops and it was very peaceful.
We tried some honey tea, saw the coconut candy production and had a few boat trips. Lunch was perfect and Jack ensured that all dietary requirements were catered for!
Even we are Vietnamese but we learnt a lot from him about history, culture,.. and was hilarious. He also never rushed us to move on and made sure we moved on when everyone was ready. The food on this trip was good and catered for vegetarian and gluten free. We highly recommend this trip!!!
If I have a chance to come back. I definitely choose Pioneer again.

Dear Aussiet, It's very nice of you to share your genuine thoughts related to our Mekong Delta tour right on TripAdvisor this time, especially when you seem extremely satisfied with Mr Giau, one of our greatest tour guides until now. He's not only an interesting person but also a well-managed buddy you can trust. But more than that, we're happy that you also loved our Mekong tour this time, from Vietnamese food to the beautiful scenery of the country. Do not hesitate to return to Vietnam for another fascinating journey and unforgettable memories. Best regards, Pioneer Travel Team

Great day on the delta!
Jan 2020
We had a great trip to the Mekong Delta with Tony, who is really knowledgable and a great singer!! We went to lots of stops and it was very peaceful and we were able to avoid other tourist groups unlike the other trips we have done. Lunch was amazingly no and Tony ensured that all dietary requirements were catered for! What a great way to spend our last day in Vietnam! Thank you Tony!!!

Amazing trip
Jan 2020 • Couples
Well organised trip. The guide - Tony was very engaged, helpful and musically talented (surprise :D). Both places - Pagoda and delta of mekong were truely beutiful and worth visiting. If you visit Ho Chi Minh you must go there. Everything was as planned. Thanks for the great day.

OK, but not as advertised
Dec 2019
The good - guide Thong was knowledgeable and a very nice, kind young man.
Other - system let me confirm 2 tours that we’re not available!
Said to arrive at 7:45am - bus arrived 8:15am and we actually joined a larger group till the 2 hour arrival port. Then continued to a different port.
Brick factory visit - where they don’t actively make bricks!
Coconut factory where they just make candy.......that’s a candy “factory”
Visit to market - never happened.
On return, we had to wait over half hour for the larger group to return from their tour so we could return to HCM.
So, I was expecting a more non-touristy tour. It really wasn’t. All the stops are used by dozens of different tours - remember this is a business of tourism so it doesn’t ring true and authentic. You are being “processed “ through the system. It does expose you to a different part of Vietnamese life and its gets you out of HCM city.

Dear Jeffrey, First of all, I would like to say thank you for your booking and supporting Pioneer Travel, and I'm sorry for canceling your booking twice because we're not enough the guest to operate this tour on the date you choose. However, I would like to explain to you more based on your opinion in the review. - Your tour is the joining group tour, the time you will be picked up will from 7.45 am - 8.15 am because the bus has to pick other guests up also. I'm sorry to make you wait long but if I understood your expectations more, I will offer you choose a private tour with a non-tourist, you don't have to wait for other people also. - The brick factory visit, the tour guide will explain the process for you, but for this one, the local people do it as in the season, that's why you can't see about the activity much, but we make sure visitors can completely understand about the process making brick of local people in Mekong delta and enough the destination as we give you in the itinerary. - As you mentioned about the waiting of other groups, if your tour is the joining group tour, so I think it will be not much different if you wait for the guests of your group or other groups. Moreover, the day you go to your group only 3 people, I think you enjoy more and hope you understand that. Last but not least, Pioneer Travel tries our best to give our guests a good price with a more local tour to let the guests can enjoy most of the part of their journey. The word "authentic" depending on feeling of every person with their own perspective. I'm on the behalf of Pioneer Travel very much appreciate your review to let us make it as the improvement in the future. Best regards, Ms. Natalie
