About
We have been local tour guides when being students and we had plenty of experience as well as knowledge helpful for our career at the moment. We also hope that present local students can have opportunity to become the tour guides like us. Therefore, we organize floating markets tour, bicycle tour, food tour and arrange home-stay for tourists. Our tour guide can speak English or French very well.

Trung organised a fantastic full day motor bike tour for our family of four (2 teens). The tour included arranging the hire of a motor bike and helmets and a bike/driver for one of our children (the other rode with Trung). A great way to explore the delta area travelling on lots of back roads. On our tour we saw a great deal including Kei Quyt Forest, travelled on a canoe past old VC bunkers and went to Sa Dec to see the colourful flower markets. Many eating stops a long the way. Trung was very flexible with the itinerary (taking us to where we had expressed interest) and a great tour guide. Although not used to riding motor bikes, we always felt safe. A very full and rewarding day - a highlight of our holiday. Highly recommended!

It was an awesome tour, it started early enough to see the sun rise over the floating market. Our boat driver was a very friendly local man. He really cared for us (he gave us hats when the sun began shining, he closed the roof of the boat once it got too hot, he gave us pineaple,...) and he was always smiling.

We also saw tours with big boats, but I think our (private) tour was a much better experience. The price is also good. Other organizers offered tours that were much more expensive!

Overall a very good experience and a good way to start the day! Would recommend!

I made a solo private long floating market and small canals trip with Mrs. T. She shows me around Can Tho and the Mekong Delta! What should I say? She’s an amazing girl, a good english speaker.

She picked me up early in the morning at 4:25AM, she was on time and we get to the pier and explore the Mekong River by Sampan Boat very early in the morning.

First we gone to a smaller Market to have breafast, it takes about 2h to get there, very small market, good food, good coffee, local people non touristy.

Then we go to a Wet Market and by some local fruits to taste them, delicious!

We go to the small canals by sampran, and she told me about some fruits which are growing in these canals, and some of them we taste. There are Mangos, Jack Fruits, Dragon Eyes and many more, she is good knowing about that

She show me a local noodle factory, how the locals make noodles, non touristy, no souvenirs to buy there. We helped the workers to make some noodles. Good experience and natural authentic adventure

At the end we go to the big floating market the cai rang, she told me the story about the market, we go on a pineapple boat and eat a delicious pineapple on top of them

Amazing Tour, i made many tours in Vietnam but this one was the best!

Thank you so much for a beautiful day Mrs. T

Mr Trung is so helpful and lovely. We met him quite by accident outside his hotel. Next thing we know he’s booking us a boat trip from our Homestay to the floating markets, he’s looking after our bags whilst we walk around Can Tho and even organised a cheap taxi all the way to Rach Gia. Incredibly well organised and I get the impression well respected in the community too.

The early morning boat trip down the Mekong that Trung took us on was really special. A good long, 5 1/2 hour trip where we saw so much and especially the less visited floating markets, where we had excellent breakfast noodles, served to us from a smiley lady on a boat.
The trip down the backwaters was really fascinating as well. The sort of thing the bigger boats wouldn’t be able to show you.
Trung was full of information and also extremely helpful
Thanks

My boyfriend and I booked the long tour in Can Tho which included a boat tour to the floating market, the dragon fruit farm and the noodle factory. It was absolutely amazing! The boat man was very friendly and brought us safely to every place. We bought some Pho and fruits at the floating market, tried some dragon fruit and made our own noodles! I would say it is definitely a must-do when being in Can Tho. Everything was perfectly organized and they offer fair prices for all their tours, so I would definitely recommend this one! 😊

We went on two tours during our visit. The first was a boat ride that took us to two floating markets, small canals, and a noodle factory. We had breakfast in one of the markets, which was a unique and enjoyable experience.

The second tour was a bike tour, and it was a highlight of our trip. We rode through local villages along both small and large canals, and we saw many fruit trees. This tour gave us a wonderful opportunity to learn about how people live in the delta and to appreciate the beautiful and peaceful landscape.

Overall, both tours were excellent experiences, but we highly recommend the bike tour for its educational and scenic value.

I had a private Floating Market tour with Explore Mekong Tours guide Trung. It was really fabulous experience. At 5 am we left in a small boat and after some time we reached Phong Dien floating market where we had delicious local breakfast: noodles and local coffee. After that we wandered along the green channels of Mekong Delta. We also visited noodle factory and Cai Rang floating market. Trung is really great guide and communicative person so I definitely recommend him.

Nice, interesting enjoyable tour, starts very early in the day as the floating market only lasts until 10. Worth the trip. Visit the market and see all the activities around you. Have a delicious breakfast on the water. The guide gives you plenty of useful information about the daily life of the merchants. The guide has no rush and is pen to your questions and suggestions. After a while you continue to the second, much smaller, floating market. On the way back , if you want, you can visit an interesting factory.
I can highly recommend this tour to anyone.

We went on 2 half-day tours with Trung when we were in Can Tho . We went for a cycle ride on small roads next to the river. We saw local fruit farming and how people live in small houses next to the river.
The next day we went to the floating market, which was not as busy or colourful as we had hoped! However, Trung took us for breakfast at a small place on the river bank and we chose some sticky rice with coconut milk from a little street food stand then ate it with a cup of delicious coffee. Then he to us for a walk along the river to see a small noodle factory before we went back to town.
Trung speaks very good English and was a great guide - I'd definitely recommend booking with him!
