On the trip to Ben Tre, i finally have a chance to join in a boat cruise along the legendary Mekong River. The scenery here is hardly touched by the human hands. The vast area on the horizon along with the cool breeze just Free my mind. I love sitting on the sampan more than sitting on the motor boat.... More

We booked a tour through Visitwonders, at the last minute. The lady we corresponded with via email was very helpful, especially given the late notice. They even booked us into an upgraded hotel at no extra charge, as the hotel they usually used was booked out. Our tour guide, Dep, was excellent. He spoke very good English and was friendly... More

Everything was well planned out, meals fantastic, 2 tours a day on most days, the boat was amazing and all food and alcohol included (except wine which was included at... More

My tour of Vietnam was fantastic. One of the highlights of the trip was a boat cruise through the villages in the Mekong River Delta. I highly recommend this if you plan a trip to Vietnam.

In November 2013 we were holidaying in North Vietnam and had to make sudden changes to itinerary to avoid Typhoon Haiyan which was heading directly for our next stop south on the coast. We did some quick searches and decided to fly Ho Chi Minh city and take a tour to the Mekong Delta and we are so glad we... More

Travelles with Mekong Adventure Tours. This tour was good! Bus was small and a little overpacked. Could not sit comfortably for the 3 hour journey. Boarded a bigger boat first that took us around to see how rice paper, rice pops, rice wine and coconut candy was made. Our guide, Den, spoke good English and was able to explain to... More

We had a wonderful day trip to the Mekong Delta with SaigonBen Tourism. Their private guide took me & my colleague on the Mekong river through the floating markets, stopped at the local floating cafe to get fresh tropical fruits and cocoa nut to drink! We then travelled further into the smaller rivers to a local crafts market and sampled... More

My wife and I capped off our Vietnam trip with a tour with SEn from Mekong Journeys (you can find Mekong Journeys on Facebook). She helped us get from Saigon to Can Tho to make it happen. It's a long trip, but well worth the experience. She met us at our hotel (Victoria-great place by the way), at 5:00 am.... More

Run by Heritage line (Same people that do boats in Halong Bay), we found this a very pleasant way to move from Vietnam to Cambodia. We ate well, slept well (although the cabins a a bit 'juste') and had very pleasant company for the whole trip. The ships crew looked after us well although there was marked difference in atmosphere... More
