What a fantastic day! Nut , our guide was very informative and fun. At 77yrs young he had many wonderful stories and knowledge that kept us intrigued throughout the day. The day is long and action packed and a highlight our trip so far. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We have just finished our private 4 days tour and we couldn’t be happier. I would give 100 million stars, but unluckily the system only allows to give 5 stars. So that’s why I can only give 5. So, to start this review, I’d like to say that when we booked our tour, we didn’t know if the tour was just for us two (private tour) or if more tourists were going to be with us, but when we knew it was a private tour, we were so happy because that was what we wanted. Our guide, Mr Lê Duy Nhut “Uncle Nick”, and our driver, Mr Quang, were more than excellent. We are so lucky that we were able to share this trip with them! Our driver, Mr Quang, always drove with care and he gave us bottles of cold water and refreshing wet tissues that we always appreciated so much since it was so hot outside. And he always put the air conditioner on, which we really appreciated because of the heat. Our guide, Mr Lê Duy Nhut “Nick” , is one of the kindest and most friendly person we have ever met. He is also warm and extroverted. He speaks very good english. He explained everything to us. He gave us so much information and with so many details. He knows so much of everything!!! He is very wise and we learnt so much about Vietnam: everyday life, religion, history, agriculture, fruit, trees, flowers, the Vietnamese conical hat... If we had questions, he would always reply with so many details. He knows so many dates and numbers... He’s amazing! We have gained an uncle thanks to this trip! He cared for us so much during the whole trip. I wasn’t sure I could ride a bicycle on the 2nd day because of my lack of practice, so he worried and wanted to make sure I was okay with it before that day, so we went the three of us the previous evening for about 30 minutes with a bicycle each to practise a bit. It was great and the next day I had no problem with my bike. And about the tour itself, it was very well spent money. We did so many activities and we rode on so many different boats. We are so happy we booked and made this trip, but so sad when it finished. We went to Ben Tre by car and we stopped to see the pagoda. There are so many big Budha statues! The pagoda is so beautiful. And then we continued until we took a private boat where we had coconut water and then we went to an old brick factory. We went back to the boat and had the coconut’s delicious meat. Then we rode to a coconut candy factory/workshop to see how they make the candy. We saw all the process: how they open the coconut, they take the meat, they make the mix, they put it in molds, they cut it, the wrap the candy... We went later to see how they make grass mats, and we could even try making them! After that, we rode a tuktuk and went to a beautiful restaurant later to eat a delicious meal that included a delicious fish called elephant ear, big shrimps, rice, fruit... We went to Vinh Long by car and them we took a boat to our beautiful homestay/hotel, we helped make dinner and we ate what we had cooked! It was delicious! The following morning we ate a delicious and big breakfast, we took a boat, we rode a bike to see the local agriculture and went to a lady’s house who made us a really nice tea and gave us some fruit. Then we rode the bike a bit more and it was so refreshing! We saw pinapple plants with growing pinapples in them! Then we took a boat (private, as usual) where a lady made lunch and we ate a delicious meal on the boat. We went to the oldest church in Indochina and then to Can Tho. In our way we stopped at the place where they shoot the film L’Amant. It is a beautiful house. We checked in our hotel and we had free time, so we went for dinner, we went to the night market and we went for a very nice walk along the riverwalk. The following morning we met our guide and driver very early in the morning to see two floating markets. We took a boat before the sunrise to see the first floating market. It was very early and a bit chilly (take your jacket for the first 40-60 minutes) but it is so worthwhile! The first one was smaller, but there aren’t so many tourists, so we liked it a lot. We were still on the boat and we went to see the second one. In our way we could see the sunrise! It was so beautiful! The second floating market was so big! I couldn’t imagine it was so huge! We went to the floating restaurant where we had a delicious breakfast and for dessert the fresh and sweet pinapple that our guide had bought at the floating market. Delicious! Then we went (still by boat!) to a beautiful garden. There are so many different trees anf flowers! The cacao tree (with the cacao fruit!), jackfruit trees (with sooo many fruits!!), the durian tree, papaya trees, the Vietnamese-apple tree, water lillies, lotus flower, garlic flower (it smells like garlic, but it’s not garlic, it’s a flower)... Our guide bought some fruit for later and we went took our boat again to go to the car. We saw a Cao Dai temple, that is so colourful! We went to a kmer pagoda that was beautiful and had this golden colour everywhere. We went then to Ca Tru Conservation. We walked on the bamboo ways and bridges. We could see birds and butterflies! They were so beautiful. We embarked on an arrow-boat. It was so beautiful! The trees, the flowers, the birds... We took two more boats to go to the exit. We arrived to our hotel, we checked in and then we had free time. We went for dinner to a delicious restaurant. The next morning we had breakfast and we drove to Ha Tien. We were very sad because it was our last day since we were going to Phu Quoc and we had had such a great trip and learnt so many new things thanks to our guide. If I could go back in time, I would do this trip again. We are so happy. Thanks so much to our excellent guide Mr Lê Duy Nhut and our driver Mr Quang for this unforgettable trip!

Where do I begin? This tour was amazing from the smooth transport to the interesting stops and our wonderful guide Mr Le. We saw, ate and heard so many interesting things and ended up in places with not a single other tourist around- it was magical. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour too which made it even more fantastic. To top it all off I stupidly dropped my phone in the delta and Mr Le organised for the poor boat driver to dive in and find it- which he did- and it was fine! What a hero! Such amazing service and such amazing people. I definitely reccomend this tour to anyone who wants to see the delta and have a lovely time doing it.

A very long day, but we fit in so many adventures. Our guide, Mr. Le, was funny, knowledgeable and energetic and made the trip great. His life experience (he is 76!) added to his understanding of Saigon and the delta over the years, and provided extra insights. From the morning at the floating market in Cai Rang, to the fruit orchard, the gorgeous Khmer pagoda, and then on to the family coconut business, it was all amazing. Three boat rides in one day, lots of interactions with locals, and water and air conditioning at every van interval. We would definitely choose this tour again, especially if he is our guide. I would add that this might not be the right tour for anyone not comfortable in small boats.
