The two day tour with our guide, Japan was a very fun and diverse experience. I think it was worth the expense as we did quite a lot of things we would not have done otherwise eg the boat rides, visiting factories and small local places. Only extra expense was some tipping, paying for drinks and anything you wanted to buy eg honey, chocolate, fruit and veggies.
Our tour guide Japan was very helpful and friendly and we had quite a small tour group which made for a nice experience. There was a scenic ride out of Ho Chi Minh in the morning, we visited a chocolate factory (yum!), went on a boat ride on the Mekong and had a delicious lunch (good vegetarian options).
We picked the homestay option which was a series of cabins by the Mekong. Additionally (outside of the tour) we went to the night markets in Can Tho, our guide Japan was very helpful sorting out a taxi ride and giving us bartering advice (the hotel option is quite close to these markets).
The next morning we got up early to go to the floating markets, would recommend getting up early to get the best of these. We ate some fruit on one of the boats then visited a noodle factory.
Currently still on the tour headed back to Ho Chi Minh via a famous Pagoda.

We did the Classic Mekong tour in January 2020.

Our guide's "English" name was Will.. and unlike a lot of guides all over Vietnam, his diction and accent were impeccable. Our group included Brits, an Aussie and Indians... & all of us were able to converse with him easily. I'm surprised he's not been picked up or poached by a top-end concierge service given his skills and friendly demeanor.

The tour was on time, and the food at lunch was amongst the better tasting and we'll presented lunch sets we had on our 10 day trip of Vietnam.

The bus however was cramped for leg room, and the seat didn't recline. That was the only negative in an otherwise great tour.

We have to agree with other reviewers: it is good value for money.

However, I would strongly recommend against joining this tour. If we already made the effort to fly in from Europe (or other distant place) it is worth paying more for a better trip.

The two biggest deal-breakers:
* Tour guide didn't give us any explanation, he said two sentences at the start of each attraction (eg.: this is a Buddhist temple, you have 20 minutes). He was quiet the whole time, we learned nearly nothing about the Mekong Delta. Spending 9 hours on the road, it is a waste of valuable time. The day before we had a more experienced tour guide to Cu Chi which really made the whole tour worthwhile. (the guide was kind, but simply super unuseful)
* We were in the most accessible part of District 1 (next to the Opera), yet the bus was 1.5 hours late. This is very frustrating considering the early wake-up and hurry to be available at 8.00. After inquiry they texted us that the hotel told them we were sick and are not joining the tour (this was an obvious lie, the hotel was not contacted).

The spots we visited were very nice and the lunch was also great. Some were very touristy (eg.: the rowing in the canals), with locals being frustrated with the influx of people. Others were extra, interesting and unexpected, like the three buddha statues. We esch got a coconut on the way home, which was also a nice touch.

All in all, we felt very often as a piece of moneybag being dragged around to shops and local sellers to be milked, which is ok, if it wouldn't have been the only thing we are doing.

Excellent experience and a must-do tour. Content and tour structure was fabulous. Small group was a plus factor. The tour guide (Will) is par excellence and one of the very best we have come across anywhere, not just in Vietnam. He is Knowledgeable, pleasant, succinct as well as informative and his English is Excellent. Made the day for us. If possible, choose a tour where Will is your guide. He is that good.

Amazing tour with Timothy. A great insight to local life and customs. Started with trip across to islands to sample honey tea that was lovely then to see some entertainment from islanders. Boat trip through the narrow delta waterways took us to sample some snake wine and coconut products. Sounds disgusting but wow hits the mark!!! Well worth braving the sample. Another trip to be supplied with a meal to tease the taste buds from fish, chicken beef and rice/noodles. Full day and well recommended

I was only in HCM for 3 days, so I didnt have time to do and see everything I wanted, but this day trip touched a few bases as I got to see some of the islands, take some fun boat trips, taste some great food and see some interesting sights. Our guide was great and she told us some great stories about the sites and history, and we even got back around 5pm so I was also able to check out some nightlife. I highly recommend this trip as it was well-organized and was great value. Thanks!

Tour was what was promised. We especially liked the boat touring in little canals, and the native singers. The food was even a bit more ranking thsan we would have expected. Probably ideally I would have liked to boat a little longer.

We had a very active and fun day! Our guide Typhoon Honey was really knowledgeable about the area and he made everything to make us feel good. His humor is the best and we had a lot of fun with him.
The lunch was really tasty and the boat trips where very pictures. A great way to spend a day out of the city.
Thank you the whole team.

The 2 1/2 hour journey is worth it! Deluxe Group Tours have put together a fantastic tour, using local farmers and residents and guess what? NO SOUVENIR SHOPPING!! Superbly authentic. The trip involves ferries, boats and scooters. Our guide today was Lana, who originates from this area so her level of knowledge is second to none.
