Full description
Hamlets and busy towns are dependent on the innumerable canals, tributaries and markets in the region that overflow with fish and a variety of produce yielded by the delta’s rich alluvial soil, including rice, sesame, peanuts, cashews, pineapples, dragon fruit and durian. Enjoy countless opportunities to capture amazing photos of the scenery and local people as we cruise past buffaloes ploughing fruit orchards and rice fields.  Spend time at a family homestead, where you’ll be invited to enjoy refreshing, freshly cut coconuts and fiery Mekong whisky. Your chef will prepare many Vietnamese dishes for lunch, such as fried elephant ear fish – a Mekong Delta specialty – Vietnamese spring rolls and lemongrass chicken, served at a local pagoda or school for underprivileged children. *Vegetarian or Halal meals are also available on request.

    A great way to see life on the Mekong delta from the water as we travelled from The hustle & bustle of Saigon upstream to quiet village life away from the city. Saw local markets and temples on the way and were not taken to any areas where we saw other tourist during the whole experience. A good quality lunch and Plenty of refreshments were provided throughout the trip and our guide Hang was excellent at providing running commentary on everything we saw.

    Very interesting day. Not strenuous but not for couch potatoes. I was tired when I got back to the hotel. Saw towering buildings as we left Ho Chi Minh City, then small towns and a bit of rural life along & near the river. LOTS of small ferries crossing the river. Hang was an informative and enthusiastic guide. She was quick to respond to questions but there were few, as, speaking for myself, she often covered your curiosity just before you could ask the question. The boat was comfortable, fast when needed, slow and smooth when Hang was pointing out something interesting. The information from the tour will make the rest of my trip more interesting. Plenty of cool water and fruit on the boat, plentiful lunch on a farm. AND, no souvenir shops or sales pitches the entire trip. Expensive, compared to other tours but worth it.

    We spent a wonderful day in the Mekongdelta visiting one farmer family and lunching at another family’s farm. We visited a local market, a School and two temples. Our guide, Hang, was sensational, full of knowledge and eager to make the most of our day. We can really recommend this tour.
