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.
Highlights
  • Access hard-to-reach waterways deep in the Mekong Delta with a guide 
  • Entry fees are included, meaning a more streamlined experience 
  • Tour includes a traditional Mekong regional lunch at a waterside restaurant 
  • Enjoy the scenic countryside on the ride from Ho Chi Minh City
What to Expect
Meet at Saigon Opera House, and board a climate-controlled coach for the scenic 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.

We had An amazing day today besides the weather with “Tom” (tuong) our tour guide. He was so accommodating and ensured we were enjoying ourselves. We covered so much and he made sure we didn’t miss a thing on the tour. Thankyou so much for a good day.
