Review of: Private Mekong Delta Tour
Ben, our guide, picked us up from our city centre hotel and took us to the Mekong Delta, it was around a hour and 10 min trip though could be quicker if the traffic was calmer. We stopped to see the Buddahs and temple quite close to the river before embarking on our first boat trip of the day. We went to see the small bees and held them before tasting honey tea. We sailed on to another island where we saw some traditional folk singers and had some fruits and tea that were all plucked locally. This was followed by a relaxing boat trip along a tranquil river being paddled by a local lady followed by lunch. Lunch was held in a big thatched roof restaurant, the choice of food placed in front of us was lovely and tasted so good. Unfortunatly this is where the tour finished as we had to travel back to Saigon. It was a great day with a very informative guide and would recommend this to anyone who has the time, especially as a private tour. Thanks Ben, we both really enjoyed it.…

Our tour guide (Kim) was quiet and didn’t provide a lot of information/history/explanation during the day. It felt like we missed out on a lot of stuff because there wouldn’t be background information from him. I sometimes tried to listen to other guides who were nearby for their explanation. For the price, we felt cheated for the lack of information we received.…

Tien (Tony) was our guide for the day. He was exceptionally knowledgable of the Vietnamese history. Answered all our questions and had random fun facts that he threw around when we passed certain areas. The tour was full on with plenty to do and see. Food was awesome! Great experience overall. We would definitely recommend this. …

Attended this tour with children and grandchildren unfortunately I was not feeling particularly well which probably jaded my view slightly. The guide was very knowledgeable and her english very easy to understand. The lunch provided at Cu Chi was outstanding. We did feel that we were rushed a bit and not given opportunity to browse at small markets we walked passed even though we arrived home 1 hour early. The Mekong Delta canoe ride was an experience in itself as the rain was torrential. Would not recommend this tour if unsteady on feet due to climbing in and out of canoe and boat.…
