I chose the Mekong Delta tour for my first day in Ho Chi Minh and was really pleased that I did. It was such a nice intro to the city, and I felt as if we actually experienced a bit of local life with the fish farm, candy factory, etc. We had Ngog (Gem) as our guide and she was fantastic. As a solo traveler, she ensured I felt part of the group. Plus she had answers for all of our random questions. I was really impressed with this because so many other guides seem to be reading from a script and have no deeper knowledge of the sites on their tour. A lovely and relaxing day. Highly recommend it (and Gem specifically)!
