Ben was our guide( picture) he was very informative and had jokes. We git to see a lit of stuff/ places. Brung cash as you are going to want to buy the honey, candy, etc and to tip. I read reviews that were negative about tipping at these places — they are talking 10000 dong which is less than a buck - 😯 other complaints were “ going to places that push products “- you want to see how the people of the mekong live- this is how they make their living. Don’t buy if u dont want to! Im not a tour person as i hate the constant rush- however there are times these type of tours make sense- thus is one!

Tour guide is wonderful and very passionate about his job. Convenient to ride an A/C van that picked you up in a hotel in city with a small group of fellows. It is a good plan for solo traveler.

The tour was great value for money. The boat ride was ok, nothing spectacular. There was lots of food for lunch and you had a choice after dinner to have a nap in a hammock or go for a bike ride on the island. Tour of the coconut sweet factory was interesting. Not spectacular but worth the trip.

The Tour is everything you would expect from it. There was nothing wrong from it, you got youre moneys worth, but if youre looking for a local or less touristy experience its the wrong tour. But the Tour-Guide was great(Viet), the food was delicious and for 20$ it was a good luck experience. (maybe in the future you will look more towards keeping the snake in a way that is appropriate to the species, because of that only 4 Stars)

It was so cool! I really loved crossing the Mekong Delta to get to the island. It honestly reminded me of a Disney ride in the water but the real deal. It was absolutely crazy.

An entertaining and informative excursion. Be aware it isn’t so much a cruise on the Mekong as an island hopping sampler of things like food snd music. Duc did a nice job of organizing and is a very pleading tour guide. The temple was also outstanding

Tour was very in-depth and included so many different things to see besides the main attraction of riding a boat thru the delta. Value is 10/10. The highlight of our tour though was definitely our guide Kevin, super professional and was very knowledgeable about the Mekong delta and Vietnamese culture in general. Thanks kevin!

The whole day was a great cultural experience and a fantastic way to see how the Vietnamese go about their day-to-day lives. The knowledge of our guide Betty and her willingness and passion to share her country allowed us a greater insight into Vietnam. She was a gem. The driver Mr Trong was fantastic at navigating the traffic and getting us there in one piece and the vehicle provided was first class. We also felt that the movement from island to island was seem less and all very well planned. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Very educational tour with a good mix of fun. Kevin is friendly, accommodating, and enthusiastic. The food we tried was delicious and accommodated all allergy/food restrictions. We held bees, drank snake wine, and held a python. He pushed us beyond our comfort level in the best way possible. Kevin really made this experience what it was. A great way to start our time in Vietnam !
