About
Mekong Delta’s Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a haven for wildlife, but difficult to access independently from Ho Chi Minh. This small-group tour whisks you there by speedboat to explore its wildlife-rich mangroves and lagoons. Ride a rowboat, follow trails, and see monkeys, birds, crocodiles, and gibbons in one smooth, guided excursion. A light breakfast, lunch, and hotel transfers are included in this day out.

Highlights
Visit the Mekong Can Gio Biosphere Reserve by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh
Scenic return deluxe speedboat ride to avoid transport hassles
See monkeys, birds, and crocs; ride a rowboat, walk jungle trails, and more
Limit of 14 for small-group touring, with two meals and transfers included
What to expect
Depart your Ho Chi Minh hotel and enjoy a deluxe speedboat ride along the Mekong Delta’s forest-framed tributaries to Can Gio. Aim to bring binoculars with you. As you cruise, savor onboard refreshments, stop to visit Can Giuoc market, and gaze at the passing rice fields, fruit orchards, and mangroves. On arrival, delve into the reserve to discover and learn about its ecosystem and animal, bird, and plant life. Delve into rustic fishing hamlets, ride a rowboat across the Giant Bat Lagoon, and—after a short hike—enjoy a riverside lunch of classic Vietnamese cuisine. Then, head for the salt-marsh forest reserve of Vam Sat Park. Here, watch for monkeys and birds, go crab fishing, and visit a crocodile reserve—perhaps feeding them using fishing rods—or opt for a guided mangrove walk. After your return boat trip to Ho Chi Minh, your tour ends at your hotel.

Great day
Mar 2020
What a great trip, so interesting. The explanations about the stilt houses, river boats was really interesting. The mangrove boat tour was so tranquil, seeing the monkeys, feeding the crocs wet all great. Then lunch absolutely fabulous meal, chicken, fish, prawns, rice, salad. All lovely and so tasty followed by fresh fruit, Thai was all freshly prepared and cooked. Sorry I forgot our 1st stop to the local market and the commentary about the people and food. We were in a small group of 6 which was great fun. Mr Kha was great host along with the other staff. We really enjoyed our 2 nd tour with this company the last one was to the tunnels. A bit more expensive but well worth the money.

Wonderful excursion and fantastic care
Feb 2020
Right at the beginning it was clear: Only two participants would take the tour, because several other guests did not show up. I felt sorry for the tour operator, but for the other guest and me it was a stroke of luck. We had the boat for ourselves and were constantly supplied with delicious snacks and drinks (delicious iced coffee). The visit to the market and the stations in the biosphere reserve were great. It is best to have binoculars with you so that you can see the flying foxes well. I had imagined the crocodile fishing to be rather lurid, but in truth it was really interesting. The lunch at a very remote place was impressively good. The very competent and friendly care by the guide and his helper should be emphasized.

Great day away from the crowds
Feb 2020
Excellent trip! I had booked this as a surprise for my group of friends and they just loved it. It included going on rowing boats to see bats, fed monkeys and crocodiles (which turned out to actually be lots of fun), visited a market and were able to take a lot of pictures. Our guide even helped get some really good shots of the bats which was not easy to do. Lunch was in a beautiful area and was delicious and plentiful. Drinks and fruits were available throughout the trip. The whole crew was very pleasant and very competent. We were all very happy to have had this experience.

Visit to Can Gio
Jan 2020 • Couples
A well-informed trip, guided excellently by Hang. The walk and rowing through the mangroves on Can Gio was peaceful and enjoyable, the visit to the market good, home-cooked lunch was plentiful but the crocodile feeding rather tacky.

Best trip we did in Vietnam
Jan 2020 • Friends
It was our last day in Vietnam today and we picked the best trip of our holiday!
We didn’t want to go on anymore trips in a van so we decided to go by boat!
We were shown (by our great tour guide!!) areas of Saigon that we would not have seen otherwise. On the trip we went on rowing boats to see bats, fed monkeys and crocodiles. Lunch was in a beautiful setting and was delicious. Drinks and fruit were on hand throughout the trip and we also got to visit a market where the people were very friendly. However the best part of the trip was our tour guide, we were very lucky!! Thank you and if I find myself back in Vietnam I would definitely do a trip with Les Rives again. Oh and I am very picky so to get 5 stars from me doesn’t happen very often!

Very enjoyable tour
We did a lot on this tour… Started off by visiting a local market, and when I say a local market I mean just that- you don’t see any Westerners there, it’s all Vietnamese. And it was very interesting walking around with our tour guide pointing out what things were, what they were used for, seeing different types of (live) fish and what not. Spent probably about an hour at the market before we continued on. We visited a crocodile preserve, which was OK but if you’ve been to Florida you’ve seen alligators; is really not much difference. Also took a not very long row boat ride to a mangrove forest which was really cool and saw a lot of huge bats hanging from the trees. The last thing we did was stop at this site where there are a lot of long tailed monkeys and the tour guide fed the monkeys and we had a little fun with them before calling it a day. Throughout the trip along the river we would see old fishing villages that are slowly being taken down by the government (sadly) but they are a bit of an eyesore so I can really understand both sides. Boat ride back took about an hour and by this time I was exhausted from the sun and I just napped on the way back. Overall though very enjoyable excursion and I’m glad we did it.

Great trip with super good tour guide Mr Kha!
Very well organized trip with professional tour guide Mr Kha, who was able to share interesting curiosa about local culture on top of the ordinary information in a good easily understandable English. The Vietnamese 7-course lunch was also very good. Thank you for a great memorable experience!
