We booked a tour of the Mekong through IndoChina tours prior to arriving in Vietnam. What a wonderful experience we had. We arrived in Ben Tre, a two hour drive from Siagon, and were met by a local tuk tuk. A short drive through the local farming community was lovely before arriving at a canal and boarding our very own... More

After looking at a myriad of choices for Mekong day tours I selected Mango as it seemed to be a good selection of visits and experiences for my family, a party of 6 adults and children. I was a little concerned when I booked it as the website was down but the communication was great and I was assured that... More

We were dropped off at the Mango Sampan pick up point, for our 2 day/1 night cruise down the Mekong, and were immediately impressed with the facilities. There was a lot more room on board than we thought there would be, with several “rooms” – a bedroom, bathroom, lounge/viewing room, dining room and open air deck. The excursions on and... More

Our family of four spent 20 nights in Vietnam in May/ June. We had a very interesting trip, we stayed in fabulous places and saw wonderful sights and did a lot of shopping. We truly enjoyed ourselves but the heat was oppressive, unbearable and too exhausting. Every town we went to we had a very good idea about the hotel... More

I am not a person who likes to criticise holidays especially when I have helped to organise it. My wife and I had booked a 2 night cruise up the Mekong and there were more cons than pros for this part of our 3 week holiday in Vietnam. We travelled on a private Sampan From Ben Tre to Chau Doc...

Dear PLP, Thanks very much for taking the time to create a review of our service. As you came through one of our great partner agents, I believe there was a gap in the information that had you expecting something other than that we offer. As you mention in your review, our program is an off the beaten path experience.... More

We totally enjoyed our 3-day cruise on the Lily May. We were three couples traveling together and this trip was the start of our travels south to north in Vietnam. It was extremely hot during our trip, but the sleeping cabins were comfortably cool. The staff were extraordinarily professional and the food wonderful. Our guide Uy introduced us to the... More

Dear Debra, Thanks for taking time to submit a review regarding our Private Charter the Lily May. Mr. Uy is one of our great guides and we will certainly pass the feedback on to him. A private tour in the Mekong Delta allows the opportunity for so many "chance" encounters and the people are so warm and friendly. We are... More

We went on 2 days, one night boat trip with 2 families (with 4 teenage children) on thee Lily May. The tour was excellently organised, interesting places to visit with and without the bikes. The food was superb and the stay on the boat fantastic with a beautiful surrounding. Worthwhile and highly recommendable!
