Mekong Delta Insight Tour - Deluxe Group Tour

Select Date and Travellers

US$45.00
Date

Overview
The Insight Mekong Delta is a specific customized deluxe group tour for clients who love to experience the deeply untouched landscapes, less touristy areas and honest local people.

Ben Tre is famous as the hometown of coconut, this is one of the best places to experience local life in Mekong Delta, explore picturesque canals and traditional activities such as brickwork atelier, coconut processing workshop. Visit a Mekong- styled village, take a short cycling tour or hop on “xe loi” to explore the surrounding fields. An authentic and relaxing experience!
Highlights
  • See life in the Mekong Delta on a day trip from Ho Chi Minh
  • Ride a boat to visit coconut, brick, and weaving workshops
  • Visit a village and fruit farm by rickshaw, and cruise canals by rowboat
  • Get insight into daily life with a guide, and enjoy a small-group atmosphere
What to Expect
After pickup at your Ho Chi Minh hotel, travel to Ben Tre on the Mekong Delta by air-conditioned minivan. On arrival, take a cruise along the River Ham Luong and visit various local workplaces. See bricks made by hand at a brickworks studio, watch as coconuts are turned into foodstuffs and products at a factory—perhaps sampling some fresh coconut—and visit a weaving house to view mats being worked at hand looms, with the opportunity to try weaving yourself. Then, delve into daily life in the delta as you explore a quiet village and ride a xe loi motorized rickshaw around fruit orchards. Visit a riverfront restaurant to lunch on staples such as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, and finally, ride a rowing sampan along narrow canals to enjoy the scenery. After another boat ride, your trip ends at the original Ho Chi Minh starting point.

Hi Beth, You can call the tour organization AtoZ or Deluxe Group Tour, both will assist you with your query. Usually, the tour guides pick-up their customers directly from the hotel.
