not my favorite

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.

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

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

Five of us took the day trip. We were rather disappointed as the trip took us up a canal in a long boat for 4 people, a sample of some local fruits, visit to a honey farm and coconut candy maker, a rough and rickety ride in a horse-drawn carriage with 2 wheels. The visit is only to one island.... More

We got a very nice guide who spoke english well, but we were left with the feeling that he was more of a salesperson than a guide. As we were shoveled through the islands like sheeps in a herd, we were constantly reminded to look in the shops and buy some of the "home made" stuff. I liked the part... More

Good experience. Can see the determination of the Vietnamese in a boat ride. We were served with tropical fruits. Did some shopping. Purchased some pure honey. Stopped at a coconut candy factory. I like the sweet smell of the coconut during the processing. Should try this tour whenever you visit Vietnam.

You go to Vietnam so you do the Mekong Delta, yes is dirty water, yes it smells bad, but you really get to see how the river works with the boats and where the river people live in the houses that are literally built on stilts in the water, you also go to a market and see pagodas we booked...
