Full description
Departing at 8:00 AM, from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, heading to the Mekong Delta by minivan or bus. During the 1.5 hour drive, pass by green rice fields before arriving at the beautiful rural My Tho. Your morning trip continues from here by motorized boat on the Tien River to the Qui (Tortoise Islet). On the way, see the fishing port, boat-building workshops, and the Dragon, Phoenix and Unicorn Islet. Walk into the village, where you can visit a local fruit garden and enjoy the tropical fruit while listening to Southern Vietnamese folk music performed by islanders. Here you also can join daily activities of the local people and take in the atmosphere of this beautiful natural countryside. Visit the bee house, and take the picture of the pythons. Lunch will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. The boat cruise will lead you through Bao Dinh canal, entering Ben Tre province — "the land of coconuts." Here you'll see a typical agricultural model called "Garden - Pond – Cage,” before visiting the coconut candy-making shop. Next, enjoy a rowing boat trip on the small canal, fully covered by the shadow of the water coconut’s trees. After your boat ride, take a bike ride around the island before returning to the bus. You will arrive back in Ho Chi Minh City at around 4:30 to 5:00 PM. Select the "Night Cruise" option to continue your adventure with a 30-minute sunset cruise to admire the lights of the city while sipping a free cocktail.

Out tour guide was Kang and he did an amazing job here and always made sure all of us were doing good. And he shared all his knowledge with us as well. Definitely will recommend it.

The tour was very good, you got a lot of insights into the life of the locals. The boat trip through the Mekong Delta was unfortunately only 15 minutes, but the 15 minutes were completely worth it. Overall the tour was a complete success, we had a lot of fun!
