People need to realise this is a big trip in a day. This is known when booked so stop whinging. We had a great day with Linda from Intrepid Urban Adventures. She spent the bus trip giving us a real insight to how the locsls view the rapid changes and new properity of Vietnam. The trip did involve a number... More

We took this tour with "The Sinh Tourist". Our tour guide could have been easily replaced by a tape recording of his own voice, as there is no doubt he says the same words day for day. The only enjoyable activity of the day was actually taking little boats through the mangrove forests (for 5 to 10 minutes). Apart from... More

Do shop around for prices up to 50% difference paid for the same tour but only a difference of $4 Prepare for a 2.5 hr bus journey to the delta. Lots to see & do. Bee farm, fruits sampling, cultural songs, etc. No sales pitch nor pressure in buying anything - Friendly locals Friendly tour guides, knowledgeable and friendly!

It was such a long day and most of it was spent sitting on a bus. On the way we stopped by some Pagoda for probably 30 minutes. Then traveled again, finally when we got to the river we hopped on a boat and stopped by some farm to get lunch. Then we were taken again to some coconut candy... More

I would advise any tourists to avoid the one day mekong delta tour. We went with four seasons travel and from start to finish it was a shambles. Had to wait an hour for our bus, then get on one bus, off again, on another etc...you get the point. Bad organisation. No air con on the bus. The worst tour... More

I would recommend this trip if its your first time to Vietnam, you get to journey on a nice long boat ride, see the locals and of course locals selling touristy stuff enjoying their local made food. I must say the execution of the tour is very well crafted and also it is nice taking a breather from the city,... More

Went today with "four seasons travel" (1 day to the floating market). They put two groups in one big bus, so when they had finally gathered all the people, we reached the market it was 11:30. The "market" consisted of perhaps 5 boats - very disappointing. Then the guide told us that we only visit a small market, the big... More

I honestly enjoy cu chi more than this tour. If I could undo my decision, I would probably book the floating market tour instead of this one.

What waste of a day! Our fault for not checking and understanding the itinerary as we were sold this tour over the floating market tour which is what we wanted to do. The Guide was useless and seemed more intent on 'pimping' the local girls to all the men on the trip. I thought it was disgraceful with his constant... More

We did the combo tour, which had visiting temples, drinking snake wine, paddling boats, riding in a horse cart and having lunch by the river. All of this made the trip worth it as the Mekong River isn't much to see. If you do the trip make sure there are other things to see and that the transportation is good... More
