The perfect trip
Our 2-day Mekong Delta tour was simply fabulous. Our guide, Hang, was incredibly friendly and skilled and her knowledge about Vietnam was extensive. The crew regularly handed out hand sanitiser, and literally everything was perfectly planned out and on time... We loved our time in the Mekong Delta, it couldn’t have gotten any better. Thank you so much!

Les Rives' flawless execution made for a fantastic weekend. Home pickup was on time, boarding at the D1 pier was efficient and convenient (no time wasted in traffic jams!), the speedboat was comfortable and well managed, and Les Rives packed a great variety of cultural and natural experiences into this exploration of the backwaters of the Mekong delta. The food was superb, both on and off the boat, and the night at the resort exceeded all expectations in terms of comfort, setting and service. Last but not least, our guide Lê Hùng was knowledgeable and friendly, contributing a personal touch to the trip. We can also recommend the one-day tour of the Mekong, but the 2-day trip provided a more complete immersion farther from HCM

Can Gio Forest + Mekong Delta 3 days cruise
Aug 2019
Our overall experience with this company was excellent. From pickup to dropoff, everything was perfectly organised and we were even able to go directly from the cruise to the airport to catch our flight. Being both vegetarian, we were unsure about the variety of food we would be able to taste, but the tour guides went above and beyond to show us the local cuisine with meat replacements. During the whole cruises, there was always plenty of fresh (and very, very tasty) fruit available. The accompanying person responsible for food bought the fruit on local markets or eg even cut down fresh coconuts directly from the tree. Both guides were both very knowledgable and proficient in English, making for both a relaxed and informative atmosphere. We always felt safe, and it never seemed to have any "wasted" time in the schedule. The accommodation during the 3 days cruise (one hotel on a small island - The Island Lodge - and a small cruise ship - Bassac) was more than what we expected, making it a well-rounded overall experience. Highly recommended for seeing the Mekong Delta in more depth. Our guides where Kha and Hai, and we can only recommend both of them. We unfortunately forgot the name of the man that supplied us with food (they even assigned him for both of our trips, which made us almost feel at home), but he was very nice and always made sure we were happy.

We were well cared for on our two day speedboat trip on the Mekong River. We had a wonderful guide, Henry. We had a captain, a mechanic AND a helper- 4 employees for 5 guests! They took us to places that we would not have even considered requesting to watch the old ways that objects and foods were made. From brickmaking to candy making it was all interesting. We stayed at Thoi Son Island Lodge, an elegant yet comfortable hotel with only a few rooms. It had an amazingly beautiful pool, excellent food and comfortable rooms.

Wonderful experience
We have had a fabulous tour. Staff are professional, everything ran very smoothly. We were lucky to only have the 2 of us on this tour and felt like royalty. Sped all through the Mekong Delta region, food was delicious at each restaurant. Fresh fruit of the area and cold drinks in abundence on board. Accommodation at The Island Lodge was attentive and relaxing.
This tour is worth it! Can not fault it. Highly recommend!

Awesome Mekong tour
Jun 2018 • Family
Outstanding service all tour. Prompt hotel pickup. We were by far, the fastest boat on the river all tour (single 200hp Yamaha outboard motor). Very good boat - very comfortable and safe ride with our excellent driver Tim. There were four of us on tour, with four brilliant staff including our very informative guide Kim. Take earplugs - as the best views are at the back of the boat right next to the motor.
Generous amounts of snacks and drinks. Plenty of interesting cultural stops, great food and a superb stay at the Island Lodge hotel.
Would highly recommend Kim, Tim and the whole team at Les Rives.

Fantastic tour, very informative with lots of cultural interaction on the way.

The Island Lodge we stayed in overnight was outstanding.

The tour guide and her team really make you feel special.

Lots of cold drinks, breakfast, lunches and fruit.

Highly recommended this tour.

After 3 nights in Saigon, we looked forward to our excursion into the Mekong, we had read the itinerary, yet still did not know what was ahead of us. If you are looking to emmerse yourself in the culture of Vietnam this is the tour for you. We were surprised how many stops we made that were not on the list. Our Guide Wing was so helpful and kind, super interesting and a pleasure to listen to. The island lodge was very very nice, and the meals were good. Visiting a brick making factory, rice paper, coconut candy and snake wine being made were just a few of the fun stops made. We visited with an 84 year man who had helped the US during the war, his graciousness almost brought tears to our eyes. Well worth the money and time

This tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Wing, was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. All of the places we visited were interesting. The Island Lodge we stayed at overnight was superb. The highlight was having coconut water at a local families home. So generous and welcoming. I would highly recommended this tour for a great Mekong Delta experience.
