Booked the Mekong Delta Day tour - it was very enjoyable, educational, and well organized. Tour meets at the Opera House at 8 a.m. - our guide, Ms. Linda, was already there greeting people. We were there at 7:45 so I assume she was there greeting/organizing even later. We left promptly at 8:15 (as we were waiting for other people;... More

When we booked this we had noticed a plethora of tours and operators available. We just took this one first up as the price looked okay and the attraction of a small group was paramount to our needs. We preferred the single, make your way to the embarkation point,which alleviates an hour travelling around doing pick ups and it was... More

We weren’t sure exactly what to expect out of the tour of the Mekong Delta day trip but had an enjoyable time. Our guide, Tam, was excellent. He was knowledgeable with regards to the history of Vietnam and its impact on the Mekong Delta as well as economic and social aspects of broader Vietnam. The tour itself was well coordinated...

My husband and I had a wonderful day trip to the Mekong with Tom. He was an outstanding guide with great English. It was a very relaxing trip with interesting stops and never any pressure to purchase. Perfect day to escape the chaos off Saigon.

My girlfriend and I used Urban Adventures to visit the Mekong River in one day. Our tour guide Nguyen, or Queenie as she was known to us, was our tour guide for the day. She was excellent! Her English was really amazing (not wanting to sound patronising) and she had a great sense of humour :) She was very knowledgable... More

I like how they keep the group small (there were only 9 of us on our tour). Our guide, Tam, was very informative and humorous. We got a lot of cultural lessons from him in the few hours we spent with him. He also gave us a lengthy but interesting account of Vietnam's history and a quick informative tour of... More

We had to put off the trip for a day because we were unwell but that was no problem - they were very flexible. The travel was less than anticipated and as comfortable as could be expected. Our guide Queenie (Nguyen Vu) was great - animated, great English, knowledgeable and had a good balance of talking and letting us take... More

We did two tours on different days with Urban Adventures and both were much more than we had expected. Our guide, Linda, was brilliant - very friendly and keeping us interested the whole time. On our Mekong delta trip we had lunch which was wonderful given that I am a fussy eater who will not eat fish or seafood! The... More
