Best Vietnam Tour Guide - I dropped my phone getting out of the boat like a mindless individual. Our tour guide and the locals found it in the Mekong and helped me dry it out. His level of communication is excellent. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for knowledge, respect and a total Vietnam experience. You're in great hands with Kevin

A fun-filled day on the islands in the Mekong Delta - Really lovely tour guide named Bunny, who provided a lot of really interested information about the Mekong Delta area, and Vietnam as a whole. Very personable. The tour itself included visits to a pagoda, a coconut candy manufacturing house, seasonal tropical fruit with live traditional folk music, a short small boat excursion down a canal, and a very generously sized lunch. Recommend to all!

A bit of everything = amazing - Qui was an absolutely wonderful guide and took great care of us throughout a fascinating day - the combination of three boat rides, tuk tuk, and walking let us see so many places and vantage points. Lunch was incredible, delicious and generous amount of food, with plenty of snacks along the way. Such a special day. Highly recommend!

Terrific day trip and private - Excellent private day trip to the Mekong. Ni was an amazing guide. She spoke perfect English and explained everything in detail and with a great sense of humor! This tour avoided all the hustle and bustle of other tourists and was a nice escape from the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh. We learned about the local trades, brick making, coconut candy and matt making. We had two rides in a motorized boat and one by row boat as well as a tuk tuk. Lunch was delicious. Highly recommend this tour!

Great private Mekong day trip - Ni was a wonderful guide. She spoke perfect English and explained everything well. After driving out to Ben Tre we saw bricks being made and coconut candy being produced by local villagers. We had several rides along the river in both a motorized boat and a row boat. Lunch was delicious and the whole experience was very private and away from other tourists. Highly recommended.

Wonderful experience. - It was worthwhile paying extra for private tour. We were guided to more scenic tranquil boat rides, skipped the queuing for connection boats. Hannah our guide is very informative. Generous portions for lunch for 2 people. Thank you Hannah and Vinh being so accommodating to our last minute request for shop and ATM machine. You both made our journey sweet and memorable.
