If you are reading this review you are looking for a Tour. You can find a tour that will cost you $5AUD and will include a bus trip with a few other tourists on a slow bus, standing around in a swetty group while being explained how to make coconut candy, stopping for 5 minutes at a time so everyone can get a photo, listening to complaints about what is provided for lunch then returning to your hotel after stopping at everyone elses first.
If you choose Mango cruises you get picked up in a private airconditioned car and driven to ben Tre. The drive to the destination is interesting in its self. When you arrive you are transported on the back of a xe Loi. Winding through a small village with narrow roads. (you are provided with a hat). I could give you a detailed description of the tour but bascially it is a private tour. English of the guide isn't quite up to scrat however he is improving. When being shown brick factory etc you can ask as little or as many questions as you like then move onto the next destination.
The cruise is comfortable, there are outdoor chairs with cushions or deck chairs. We lay on the deck chairs on the way home. Comfortable and with a light breeze it is excellent. The riding component is short. For those who are not that fit the bike seats are large and take your time and enjoy and before you know it the bike component is over.Lunch was tasty and great to sit on the veranda of the home stay and eat and watch the world go by on the river.
We had been feeling unwell the day before and by about 1.30pm we decided we would like to head back to our hotel and rest. The best bit about a private tour is you can decide when it is finished as well. We felt satisfied having seen the village life. cruising on the river. Riding on a smaller boad along a narrow canal, seeing rice paper being made, Seeing noodles being made, seeing bricks being made and seeing some landscape out of Ho Chi Minh.
We paid a bit more for our private cruise, we also paid a lot of money to get to vietnam so we decided that we wanted our one day cruise was to be perfect not satisfactory and Mango Cruises provided that.
