“Wonderful visit to nature and experience Vietnamese Culture”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We started the tour by trekking through the fruit plantation at Thoi Son Island and reached a village to have some fruits and tea while enjoying the music and song by the locals. Next, we took a rowing boat ride through the Tan Thach natural canal that brought us to the next destination which is a coconut sweet making place managed by a family. Subsequently, we took a motorboat to Tortoise Island where we had a sumptuous local meal for lunch. We ended the tour with a visit to a Buddhist temple. In this one day tour, we had the chance to visit 4 different places and had a wonderful experience.

“A busy, beautiful river cruise”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

A day on the cruise gave an insight into the river life of Ho Chi Minh City. I found it fascinating, enjoyable and intriguing. A visit to the home industries was interesting - no pressure to buy, but good value. Extraordinary lunch with elephant ear fish - decorating beautiful ad food of excellent quality - right in the middle of nowhere. We did the trip through Mekong Travel - it was excellent - even the finale of fresh coconut milk - how refreshingly difference.

“One day tour with Asian Travel Mate”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is a tourist set up which I would normally avoid but it's a great day out. The group was small with just six people. Our tour guide Tommy had great English and was friendly and obliging. The two hours bus trip was a bit tough, but for a newbie like me it was interesting. There is a quick stop at a rather magnificent Temple just before getting to the wharf. Then it's a bit non-stop action as you proceed through the tour. Expect canoe rides,riding on a small horse cart, tasting different things (I recommend Snake Wine) and a great lunch with Elephant ear fish. Cost was$34 and seemed to be really good value. Recommended.

“Nice experience”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

It was a very packed day, planned to give you a lot of exposure in a limited time. Alhough one is taken to all the home industries, I never felt obliged to buy something. See my picture of the making of rice paper. We were quite intriuged with all the rice products. This trip is however not for the old and frail: the transfers to the different boats and the long and bumpy ride could be tiresome. The local market we walked through just before we boarded the bus introduced us to some local cuisine: live snakes, chickens, worms, 8 different kind of eggs, rice etc.

“DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

After reading the indifferent reviews we thought we'd still go as we are very unfussy people and tend to find most people find faults in places or attractions that we really like.

HOWEVER this trip was terrible. We did the 1 day trip through Vietnam adventure tours visiting a coconut candy store, honeybee farm, disabled workshop, and 'tropical fruit place'.

Oh dear just writing this makes me cringe. It is all about taking you places to buy things. You actually spend about 30mins in total on the water and see very little. It is not a mekong delta tour at all.
Please do not waste your time or money.
