The tour left perfectly on time and picked us up directly from our hotel. We had a very professional guide who gave us a lot of information about the life of the Vietnamese people. The stop at the pagoda, the crossing of the Mekong, the tours in the canals, the visit to the village and to the coconut candy factory are beautiful. The lunch served is also good. Outstanding tour

I participated with my family. Our guide, Mr. Tu, was friendly, bright, and kind, and he taught us a lot in detail. Thank you very much. Although it is an English tour, it is recommended if you understand simple English.
