A really nice tour with a very good guide (Tam), who explained us a lot about Vietnamese culture and history. The Tour was with the Cu Chi Tunnel and the visit of one arm of the Mekong. Our guide made sure we would avoid crowded places and made us discover Vietnamese food. So I definitely recommend booking this tour, it's very much worth every penny!

It was a sunny day in mid February the Lunar New Year and we were in Ho Chi Minh city together with my parents, I've embarked on this exotic tour exploring the mighty and grand rivers of the Mekong Delta where the Mekong river meets the South China Sea. The tour is group and we boarded a bus towards the port terminal, the book we took is mid-size enough for about 20 to 30 people. It was a bit shaky but because the river is very still you wouldn't feel any shaking or wavy. The tour has a guide and we embarked on the first island called Unicorn and from there we were greeted by Honey Bees (which were pretty tame) and tried local Vietnamese Raw honey and some sweets. We stayed for about 30 mins then we embarked on foot to watch a traditional Vietnamese singers who sang for us while drinking Vietnamese tee and munching on local fruits. Then we walked towards the small traditional Vietnamese boat on a canal tour that takes about 30 mins for about 2 km (unfortunately that day it was low tide and the skipper both front and back have difficulty maneuvering us 4 in the boat. And since it's low tide a bit smelly. I felt guilty after the canal ride I only gave a very small tip and If I come back will provide the skipper more tips definitely. Then we embarked on our main boat again towards the main island and watched traditional Coconut husking for sweets, juice and many other products. Then we embarked for another canal ride to one of the tributaries of the big Mekong delta but this time the boat is motorized and we are 10 in the boat and it is not smelly and the view is more beautiful. Hopped on to our boat back to another island where we will have our lunch and it was sumptuous - I get to taste Elephant fish, Vietnamese spring rolls (fried and fresh), Pork soup with veggies, Pork stew, and Fruits - drinks you need to purchase on the restaurant. I get a second round of rice servings hehe. Then this area also has a mini-zoo and garden where I get to see for the first time Siamese crocodiles and Porcupines. After lunch we embarked back on our port on our way to Saigon. We arrived at our hotel by 5 PM. If you plan to visit Saigon this is one of the best opportunities to witness the Grand Mekong Delta - it's worth it.

We did a 2-day tour of the Mekong Delta with Tony, who did an amazing job of showing us the Delta, with a drive from Saigon and back. He impressed us with his knowledge of history, geography, and culture. We saw the Floating Markets, took a sampan ride along the narrow river that was the headquarters of the Vietcong in the Delta, and saw a fruit farm and lacquerware factory. We were heading up the coast to the Hue area, and asked Tony if he could help us arrange a guide for a day trip to Hoi An. He referred us to Saigon Mekong tours, and arranged for us to get a tour from Quan. Quan met us at our hotel with a driver and took us for a fabulous day tour of Marble Mountain, My Son and Hoi An. Quan was incredibly knowledgeable, spoke superb English, and took us for one of the best lunches we had in Vietnam, at Vy's Market Restaurant. Thank you Tony and Quan!

We just spent one of the greatest days of our lives thanks to our guide Tony, who took us for an action-packed one-day tour of the Mekong Delta, or as Tony calls it, “my hometown.” Certainly, having someone with local knowledge is a big advantage. But Tony’s warmth, humor, preparation and attention to detail made our day even more enjoyable. Tony wasted no time at all. Our drive from Saigon to Cai Be included a condensed history of Saigon and Vietnam and interesting backstory on how the city’s rivers and canal system evolved over the years (illustrated with a few photos on Tony’s tablet). Once we arrived in Cai Be we quickly were transferred to a scow-type vessel that would be our primary mode of transportation for the rest of the day. We visited a floating market then stopped at a few small shops to see how rice paper, coconut candy, puffed rice and local honey are made. All interesting in their own right. We then stopped at another island where we picked and enjoyed fruit and made sugarcane juice (very tasty!) A few of the locals sang and played a few songs for us before we departed again for another island we were able to tour on bikes Saigon Mekong Tours had provided for us. Hot, but way fun. We then had a wonderful lunch at a beautiful community gathering spot on the island. After lunch, we were taken to ride in a woman-powered dugout canoe (typical of the area), small and shallow enough to navigate the twisting, narrow river paths through the delta. After a magnificent ride, we reunited with Tony and the boat for the short trip back to the port in Cai Be and the subsequent drive back to Saigon. So much great stuff in a single day! The day could not have been any better. In addition to being an intelligent, articulate and informative guide, Tony is a gracious, kind, considerate and genuinely funny person. Being able to spend time with him was a privilege and a joy. I cannot recommend him more enthusiastically.
