We recently took the Mekong One Day tour with Asiana Travel Mate. This tour costs 34 dollars. Before booking it we asked them explicitly what is the difference between their 34 dollars deluxe tour and the 10 dollars tour that you can get in the Backpacker district in agencies as TNK, and they told us that you get a pick up in your hotel with a van, plus you have a knowledgeable guide.
The reality was quite different. We went in a Bus with really tiny seats, the guide had a really poor English and half of the journey on the bus he was just on his mobile phone talking all the time. The information about the tour... really little and pour.. Basically the lonely planet gives you a better explanation of the Mekong Delta.
During this tour we saw all the buses from the 10 dollars backpackers tour doing the exact same things as us and eating in the exact same place! even the bus was the same! so... 34 dollars is way to much for what they offer.. which is worse that what the backpakers agencies give you.
We did a tour to the Cu Chi tunnels with TNK for 6 dollars and it was amazing! the travel guide had good English and was really knowledgeable! and never tried to push us to give tips as the AsianaTravelMate tried to do with us!
The exact same tour in AsianaTravelMate is 24 dollars.. and we saw their bus in all the same places as we were... so not worth it!
Save your dollars! Asiana Travel Mate is only deluxe in their price nothing else. Don´t get tricked by them with their nice office and all their bla bla bla bla
