My friend and I booked a 2-day Ben Tre -- Vinh Long Mekong Delta tour with an overnight stay with a Vietnamese family in their home. The trip was absolutely amazing, from start to finish, and gave us an authentic experience traveling in a part of the Mekong Delta that is rarely visited by tourists. Our guide Tuyen spoke excellent English and gave us insights into Vietnamese culture and history. We learned that he had majored in tourism at university, which meant he was able to answer every question we asked him (and we asked a lot!). It was a thrill to be immersed in the daily activities of a small village and to spend the evening and night with a Vietnamese family in their home. We cannot praise this trip too much -- we enjoyed everything, from making dinner with the lady of the house, to riding bicycles as one of our modes of transportation, to walking through the jungle, to observing a funeral, to going to the early morning market, buying breakfast, and eating it in a nearby park. If you want a "non-touristy" experience, this is a top-notch, authentic experience.
