Our two day one night trip was really well organised. Our guide was great, and well informed. The highlight was the floating market, but the other visits were interesting and varied. Our trip had about 12-15 people. Everything as taken care of and it was amazing value. Highly recommended!

Our guide was hilarious. She had the best sense of humour and interacted with the entire group. She was full of knowledge and answered all our stupid questions. The tour was well worth it and the lunch at the end of the day was spectacular.

Discovering the Mekong delta was a great experience. The Bus was on time and every activity was scheduled perfectly. Our Tour Guide was of a great help and very professional. We were very well looked after and she never missed an opportunity for a joke. Thank you again for all your hard work.

The tour guide was a local from Mekong region and our tour learned a lot from him. He was very helpful during the tour - both to the locals and to the tourists. He shared a lot of information about his home region and sang us songs. Two thumbs up to him and this tour!
