Probably the best tour we have done in Vietnam (and we have done a few!) We were very impressed with our guide Lam, who explained some bits and pieces about Vietnamese culture that we had been wondering about and taught us some Vietnamese words in the van on the way to the first location. Shout out to our driver Mr Ten too, and the van itself which was very comfortable. We stopped at a place where Vietnamese people affected by Agent Orange make handmade crafts and learned about the process. We ended up buying a few beautiful pieces which is saying something seeing as we are only traveling with carry-on luggage. The actual tour was very action packed. Lots to do and see and eat. We learned a lot about the war experience and the culture in Mekong Delta. And I got to hold a snake which is always very exciting. All in all I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide "Harry" was fantastic. Unfortunately, I can't pronounce and write his Vietnamese name. He had a lot of knowledge, very friendly, funny and you noticed he likes to do his job. Seen many beautiful places, heard interesting stories and got to know the Vietnamese culture. The driver was also great and the bus was clean and comfortable.

Trip was very good organized by the tour Guide, Timely coordination and Value for Money Thanks our Guide Mr. Vn.

Our guide was excellent. So informative and conscientious regarding such a difficult topic.

Our guide Simon gave us a lot of information, the tour was interesting and fun :)
