Great expereince!Our tour was fantastic! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and informative day trip from Ho Chi Minh city. The Mekong Delta was amazing and the trip was one of the highlights of our 2.5 week trip around Vietnam. Our guide Thou was terrific, engaging, informative and spoke English very well (not as common as you would think in Vietnam!). She showed us such a fun day and gave us great insight into not only the Mekong Delta, but many other cultural nuances of the Vietnamese people. Don't miss this trip!
