Mekong Delta Discovery Small Group Adventure Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
US$ 65.00
Overview
Head deep into the heart of the Mekong Delta on this guided full-day tour, without having to worry about transportation. Enjoy the scenery during the trip from Ho Chi Minh City; then step aboard a private long-tail boat to explore the river and hear about its unique ecosystem. Lunch and samples of regional specialties, such as coconut candy and tropical fruit, are included.
What to Expect
Meet at Saigon Opera House, and board a climate-controlled coach for the 2.5-hour journey through the Vietnamese countryside to the Mekong Delta. Wear clothing that covers your knees and shoulders, as you’ll be visiting rural areas. 

Arrive at My Tho, the bustling port, and board your group’s private long-tail boat. As you travel, your guide will fill you in on the area’s culture and history. Stop on an island to taste tropical fruit right off the tree, and another to tour a coconut candy factory, where you’ll get a taste and and see how it’s made.

Learn about delta life through stops at local villages and informative talks from your guide. You’ll take a xe loi, or motorized cart, to a local bee farm, as well as a rowboat to gain access to hard-to-reach areas deeper in the delta.

Midday, stop at a local restaurant for a lunch of local Mekong cuisine. Finally, ride back to Ho Chi Minh City’s Opera House.

Highly recommend

We had a great tour with Tri. He was great at explaining the itinerary. The tour itself is well organized and not difficult for any age range. The Mekong Delta is something you must see.

Mekong delta tour

Ruby was a great tour guide. There were lots of experiences- row boat, bee farm, local home, traditional singing, fruit tasting, coconut candy making. All very interesting. Lunch was terrible. Everything Luke warm and unappetizing and made us sick. Otherwise a good day

I am sure they would adapt the tour. There was quite a bit of time sat at lunch / on the boat / inside looking a candy plantation factory and sharing the tropical fruits. There would be far worse day tours eg outside walking... More

No, not needed at all. You won’t visit any religious areas. If you are travelling soon, it’ll probably be hot (as it was for us) so I would definitely recommend opting for very light clothing. Make sure you wear practical... More
