We opted to take 2 private tours as HCMC was our first stop in Vietnam and we only had 3 days there. We were not disappointed with our choices. For both of our tours we were offered Junior guides as we booked late and the other guides were all booked up. This wasn't a problem for us - both of... More

This is one of those cases where you get what you pay for. Water buffalo is far more expensive than joining a backpacker tour, and also far more unique. Quang was an awesome guide on my Mekong like a local trip, even taking me to his family's house and meeting his mom. I really felt that I was able to... More

We opted for a private day tour of the Mekong Region. Yes it is more expensive but you get a personlised experience. We did not see any other tourists all day. Phoung our guide and Mr. Hiep our driver were friendly and looked after us all day. As it was super hot we opted fir scooter ride around the countryside... More

I called Water Buffalo Tours the night before to arrange the Mekong Delta tour for our group of 6. Khoi called me back and it was no problem to arrange. We were greeted by Khoi himself the next day (owner/guide) as his other guides had been booked in the meantime. The day was amazing. We started with a visit to... More

Our family of four including a 5&6 year old girls were greeted by our tour guide Phung. Well I think we got the best tour guide in Vietnam. She came prepared from insect repellent to rain coats. We visited the local Mekong area market where we ate like a local, and to learn the fact that our kids were the... More

My wife and I booked this day tour literally the night before at 830pm (we would not recommend but we changed itinerary last minute). We thoroughly enjoyed privacy of tour - Phong was our tour guide and she was amazing!!!! She was a wealth of knowledge and kept the trip light hearted and fun. It was extremely well organised and...

Began with ride down to Go Cong where we stopped for coffee and a tour of one of the most authentic markets we'd... More

Did the Mekong Floating Market Tour from Siagon with this company. A great informative day was held. Picked up and returned to our hotel. Travelled on the river, visited some local factories. After a bike ride we had lunch at a local house then a short walk through the area. Would recommend.

I cant say enough of how much we enjoyed this trip with Huang (guide) and Quang (driver) in the private day trip. Definitely worth the price and personal tour which included my elderly dad. Enjoyed the bike ride (in 35c heat) to break up the trip and Huang stopping here and there for us to try some of the local... More

Water Buffalo Tours (not to be confused with Buffalo Tours) is a private tour specialist. We booked a 2D1N Mekong Delta tour and it was a richly rewarding experience. The itinerary is well-designed, and they definitely make the effort to meet your requirements. We visited a local market where we had fun taking photographs (and exchanged banter - through translation)... More
