Travel to the heart of the Mekong Delta on this small group adventure tour from Ho Chi Minh City. Board a private long tail boat and experience the diversity of the Mekong waterways first hand as you explore fish farms and exotic fruit farms.

Take a private boat in My Tho

Drive for 2.5 hours and arrive at the city of My Tho by air-conditioned mini coach. A former naval base, My Tho is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. The area is the final destination of the Mekong River which winds its way through Tibet, China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam.

An incredibly fertile region, its prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output. Life for villagers in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta. People are more likely to transport by river than by road.

Upon arrival into My Tho you'll board a private boat and cruise along the Mekong River. Your local guide will take you to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where you'll sample tropical fruit. Continue to another island in the Mekong Delta and learn more about another cottage industry, coconut candy. Your local guide will take you to a coconut candy factory and explain the process of making this sweet.

Have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about the traditional lifestyles

You'll also have a chance to visit local villages in the area and learn more about the traditional lifestyles, culture and customs of people who call the Delta their home. Continue by Xe Loi (motorized cart) to a bee farm where you'll transfer to a smaller rowing boat allowing you to get deeper into the smaller canals of the Delta.

Sample local Mekong cuisine at the Diem Phuong Restaurant. After lunch you'll return to My Tho for the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.

    We really enjoyed this tour, the group was quite small, the food was good, our guide was great (and her English was very good) - and the scenery was beautiful. We all ended up buying something, but not because we were pushed to buy it.. An overall good experience, with a lot of photo opportunities to prove it:)

    Did this tour on 18th June 2017. Really enjoyed this tour- we were given a general overview of Ho Chi Minh city's history by our tour guide on the drive to the Mekong, which was really interesting. Food provided on the day was really good. Also got to sample some honey tea at the bee farm which was delicious (I regret not buying the honey!). The small canoe ride down section of Mekong was interesting. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions.

    Great day in Mekong Delta.I went on the one day Mekong Delta tour and was very satisfied with the services on this company. Our guide Pham Xuân Tháo spoke very good English and her explanations were very clear. She is obviously an experienced tour guide. Her assistant Huyên was very good too. The minivan driver was safe and punctual. I enjoyed the variety of the activities during the day. The Vietnamese lunch was excellent. I also appreciated the small group size (10). Overall a very good experience.

    I really enjoyed my tour guide and meeting the people in our group we all truly bonded and shared a great adventure together!

    Our tour guide was super nice and the trip was well organized. Yet, the tour itself is quite touristy - we felt like we were being taken to buy stuff at every stop. The "coconut farm" was only a small candy making machine underneath a hut, and the "bee farm" was only two bee hives that you could take photos of. Overall, I would only recommend it if you're with kids or elderly and you're looking for something easy to do for a day.

I know there are so many tours to Mekong Delta, but I would like to show you some reasons for choosing my trip. I and my family are local family in Mekong Delta. My parents are living there as farmers with a small bread store in the morning and a grape fruit garden, so what are more exciting than the experiences with local's life style? We are welcome you as a member in our family and of course, we always have a room to share with you in our home. I would like to offer you two ways to get there, by BIKE or LONG BUS. I am always willing to be your driver :D because I drive back there every weekend, you can enjoy the views on the way better. Bike will be a good choice if you would like to stay one day and one night there, but if you only have one day, I highly recommend you a very comfortable long Bus, then I will still have a Bike to drive you around there. If you would like to taste some traditional Vietnamese foods or you are gonna to join a class here, so now you will not need to do this if you book my trip. It's great if you can get up early to go to local market with me, pick up some materials and learn how to cook these tradition foods with the chief is my Mom and your assistant is me :D I get a menu for you as below pics My trip is the best way for you to get away from a trip with many other tourist and follow the tour guide during your trip. No, I am not your tour guide, I am your local friend, so I would like to experience with you on sailing boats to the islands, sit back on the horse wagon, visit coconut candy mills, selling breads, etc, All things I can do my best to show you This is ONE DAY trip, but I really recommend that you should spend 2 DAYS and ONE NGHTS here to enjoy the peaceful atmostphere as long as the traditional cuisines of local. So please contact me to get more info about the accomodation at my house for your best choice :D
