Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Start with 9am pickup in Ho Chi Minh City, then begin the trip to Ben Tre in a private vehicle. Traveling the Mekong Delta means boats or bridges, and you’ll cross the longest bridge in the region along the way, with views down to two branches of the Tien River.

    Upon arrival in Ben Tre, board a small boat for a trip along a scenic waterway, then make the first stop of the day at a local fruit garden. Sample freshly-harvested fruits and meet the farmers, then continue to a rare orchid garden for a glass of honey tea.

    Head back to the boat for a trip to a floating fish farm and candy workshop, where you can sample Ben Tre’s distinctive coconut candy. Trade a boat for a motor cart or bicycle (please indicate your preference while booking), and spend 40 minutes touring country roads, the ideal way to get a glimpse of local life in the area. Take a break for some fresh coconut juice, then visit a local restaurant for a traditional Vietnamese lunch. Make one final stop at a Ben Tre pagoda before beginning the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City. This 10-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.

At Ginkgo Voyage, we strive to offer our travelers the best experience fulfilled with excellent tour guide, well-organized tour, tasty meals and a variety of activities in order to deep dive into the local life there. We're more than happy to know that you had a great time with our tour guide - Jun. Regarding the Buddhist temple, it is extremely famous in Mekong Delta and it was on new moon Buddhist day - a special day in Buddhism, that's why we wanted to take you to the place. Anyway, thank you so much for your feedback. We'll consider to change the schedule of visiting the temple in the future. Again, it was a pleasure to have you and your boyfriend with us and we're looking forward to seeing you in more tours in the future. Thanks & Best Regards.

    Dear HounYeonWong, Thank you so much for choosing Ginkgo Voyage and leaving your comment for us on TripAdvisor. Regarding your experience, we're sorry that we couldn't offer you neither fun time nor unique experience as you expected during the trip in Mekong Delta. At Ginkgo Voyage, we strive to provide our guests with outstanding tour guide, excellent service, informative and lively trip. We attempt to offer our travelers the best experience. Your review is a reminder and motivation for us to improve our service better in the future. Regarding the price for small group from other tour operators that you mentioned above, 15$ is price for big group with maximum 30 people whereas we offer small group with maximum 10 people. Therefore, there is a price gap in this case. Again, we appreciate your feedback and will work harder to enhance our quality in the future. Thanks & Best Regards.
