We needed to extend our visa whilst in Ho Chi Minh which was so complicated and took over a week to sort out- however Tuyen was so helpful and lovely she took us through every step along the way. We couldn’t be more grateful, Tuyen was so friendly and is really great at English- we couldn’t recommend her enough 😊

The lady that served us spoke very good English and was very polite and helpful. We only wanted a one day trip and she was able to recommend exactly what we were looking for. This was a private tour to the Mekong River. It was extremely well organised and one of the best things we did on out trip to Vietnam.
The shop is conveniently located near the main market and easy to find.

Just spent December travelling in Vietnam and if it wasn’t for Ms Van and Candy Travel it would have been so much harder! Candy Travel and Ms Van helped me book all my tours in Sai Gon and also an open bus to Hanoi which was extremely helpful! I strongly recommend this company to everyone who wishes to have an easy way in Viet Nam.

We designed our own tour to our needs skipping what we did not want to include. Quong was very helpful in designing and confirming exactly what we wanted of our tour.

Our driver picked us up at 3:00 am sharp! On time and pleasant our driver (driver only, no guide until My Tho) safely transported us 2 in new clean spacious AC equipped van on 3 hr drive from HCMC to Mekong Delta pier for boat transfer to Cai Rang Floating market. We met our 6am river boat. All motor boats on the main river system provided life vests and had us wear them in Cai Rang.

Cai Rang is noted as biggest (best) floating market but this was rather disappointing as much of the produce is simply offloaded from larger vessels to smaller buyers often in sacks and is not the cornucopia of fresh farmer market experience you may be expecting. No pretty colorful boatloads of fruit and vegetables but mostly industrial-like fresh food cargo wholesale exchanges that you may not find as romantically imagined of an idyllic market on the water of yesteryear. We did visit briefly a fruit garden off the main shore of the river for half an hour as a rest stop.

We were transferred by van again to arrive in Can Tho for a canal tour. The canal boating begins with a wooden hand-paddle boat down a romantic waterway canal surrounded by towering palm fronds along the canal banks. There were no life vest here, but the canals are slow moving and shallower. This ride is to bring you to a small coconut candy manufacturing operation. The nut clusters of the palms that surround the canal banks are the source of one such candy.

Later we are transferred to a motorboat that plies another canal system of Can Tho to a landing of the restaurant we have lunch at. This motorized boat has life vests but they are not required to be worn, but are present in the boat awning rafters above you.

The restaurant is a garden of edible plants. The food is fresh and simple but well prepared and the owner’s nephew greeted and waited on us in English and provided entertaining conversation. We took the motorized boat back to the pier for our return transport back to HCMC. We drove through rush hour traffic and a huge downpour safely.

All boat drivers and the van driver appreciated a small gratuity that was not requested. We were provided fresh coconut water straight out of the coconut on our final boat transfer after lunch and lunch was included in the tour price but not drinks/alcohol.

All-in-all a satisfactory self-designed day with our tour agent texting me to check up on our progress, always available by phone should we ever needed him.

We had negotiated a fair price and we got what WE WANTED at the time of day we needed: very accommodating to our limited schedule and previous day booking.

Please rethink Cai Rang if you are expecting a romantic photo-op. We visited on a Wednesday morning 6:20-8:30 am. We had noodles from one boat vendor and iced coffee from another—we only wish it was a more intimate and farmer market experience vs. the bulk purchasing of wholesale sacks of produce that just happened to be on the water.

Booked a Mekong Delta day trip and a Saigon by night tour for two, but my girlfriend couldn't come so I changed one ticket to an exit flight for Dalat which Candy did without hesitation! Very impressed.

During the Saigon by night tour their usual guide was unavailable, so instead I found Quang, the tour agent I booked with was taking me! A+++ service, very friendly and trustworthy. Quang has gone above and beyond by even sending me recommendations to see in Dalat. Couldn't have done the trip without them.

We were met at our hotel by the tour guide Chris Tong. We travelled to My Tho in a comfortable minibus with a.c. and WiFi. Along the journey south, Chris was very informative, explaining varous things about Vietnam, he spoke very good English and French. The lunch was of excellent standard and more than enough for our group.
We experienced a fun packed day.
We would recommend the tour guide Chris, as his narratives made the day even more interesting.
We define the day as the best one we have experienced in Vietnam.
Definitely not a tour to be missed!!

Wonderful full day tour on the Mekong Delta with an awesome tour guide Bao. He was very informative and interesting and really made the day enjoyable. I would recommend this tour, especially with this guide, for anyone interested in exploring a little of the Mekong Delta
We also had a great driver negotiating crazy traffic!

We have booked a two day Mekong delta tour. First, the lady in the office was so nice, and so helpful, we loved her. Second, our guide was very helpful as well, but he was just a guy with some good jokes and some basic info not a real tourist guide. Anyway he was fun and helpful at least.

Guys, there is a problem here. Candy travel has a subcontractor called An travel: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g298085-d11677669-Reviews-An_Travel-Da_Nang_Quang_Nam_Province.html

If you read the link above you will get the picture.

The tour itself was a huge disappointment. Some shipping, a market, shipping (needs a tip), another market, local market, bus, local manufacturer (buy something), market and....wait for it....in the end we were visiting a Multi Level Marketing company session. :D Can you believe it?

So the second day was shorter thanks god. We have just seen a floating market which means some boats hovering around your boat and selling their overpriced fruits. And a very nice garden. This was good.

And most of us booked a tour in different places. So it looks like there is a system here... :(

Dear Sir, Thanks so much for choosing our services First of all, we're appriciated for your feedback. You enjoy all activities as our program included tours and shopping. And we and the other travels co-operate to An Travel for daily tour guarantee and the price we offer you reasonable. The tip for rowing boat is not to be paid. It depends on customers. Secondly, the floating market in Can Tho don't have a lot of boat that you see on the internet now because it's crowded like this in Tet holidays period . Moreover many people who move on the mainland instead of in the river because of their children's studying. Finally, we thank you for your feedback. Hope you have a nice day.
