Well organised & enjoyable experience of the Mekong delta. Thank you for a day filled with a variety of activities. Lunch was superb.

The guide was great that adapted well to the situation when it rained, but lunch at this very touristy “resort” with the crocodile farm was abysmal - the worst meal I’ve ever had in Vietnam, with cold food, extremely fishy fish (that still had scales on), and dry and tough chicken. Would have been a much better tour if there was just better food.
