What people are saying about Cái Bè

Nice trip, worth the money. Our guide (tu) spoke good English, provided us with interesting information. Small group size off 11 in minivan. Than we changed on a boat, saw a kind of floating market (not that amazing) l, tasted fruits abord a boot, cruised the mekong, saw how some local products where made, went on a short 20 min kayak stroll. For lunch we cold help to prepare 2 easy local dishes, which was also nice. Finally we where bycicking through the fruit gardens and the local area before heading back to HCMS. Overall a very nice day (don't expact it to be very sporty)

We made the tour with our guide Tu. He's a very cheerful person, was always open to our questions and shared so many interesting facts about Vietnamese culture with us. I loved how diverse the tour was with its many different activities, food and even some crafts presentations. Maybe the condition of the bicycles could have been a little better (the brakes didn't work properly and the saddles weren't really adjusted), but that's just a minor point. The kayaking part was all the more entertaining. :)

Beautiful Day! The Guide Vu was very nice funny friendly kind.... perfect. Swimming marked was very small and on big Boots.

Excellent day trip. Beautiful scenery. Phan was an excellent guide. Witty and knowledgeable.

Great guide and lots of activities during the day.
