Overview
Discover the rhythms of daily life in the Mekong Delta on a full-day boat tour from Ho Chi Minh City. Visit a riverside market and village, a Cao Dai Temple, a Buddhist pagoda, artisan workshops and a family homestead where you can sample fresh coconuts and local whiskey. You'll also enjoy a light breakfast on the boat and traditional lunch prepared by a private chef. This day trip is limited to 14 people to ensure you enjoy a small-group experience with your guide.
Highlights
  • Mekong Delta speedboat and rowboat tour from Ho Chi Minh City
  • Includes a light breakfast and chef-prepared lunch featuring local cuisine
  • Learn about life and culture in the Mekong Delta
  • Group size limited to 14 for a more personal experience
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel for transfer to the central pier, then enjoy a light breakfast as your speedboat sets out along the Saigon River. Learn about the history and ecology of the Mekong Delta while navigating a network of canals and channels, and step off the boat at Tuong Van Pagoda for a walking tour. Return to the speedboat and continue downriver to a colorful market, then slip beneath a tropical canopy as you reach smaller and smaller tributaries. Board a rowboat for a canal trip to a Mekong Delta village, with the option to taste fresh coconut, Mekong whiskey, and locally made wine. A traditional lunch will be served at a nearby pagoda before the tour continues to a Cao Dai temple and a Buddhist orphanage, the final stops of the day. Enjoy the afternoon light on the water during the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City, where a guide will transfer you to your hotel.

I would suggest asking them. We did do the one day speedboat delta tour. It was not cheap, but a very good experience. Plenty of food, sights to see, and educational. Recommend it.
