After pickup at your central Ho Chi Minh hotel (or other nearby location), relax on the roughly 2-hour journey to My Tho by air-conditioned bus.

Stop en route at Ben Luc to visit a temple, then cruise along the Mekong River by motorized boat. Pass rice paddies, fish cages, and stilted houses, and dock at an island to visit a home. Meet the family and taste fruits, honey tea, and honey wine as you chat about their lives and listen to traditional music.

Board a small rowing boat to navigate narrow canals, passing under bridges and relishing the tranquility and scenery. Then, enjoy a horse-cart ride and classic Vietnamese lunch at a restaurant.

Finish your tour back at your departure point.

Vietnam Adventure Tours
With its stilted villages and scenic farms, the Mekong Delta offers enough to see that it’s difficult to see the highlights on a day trip from Ho Chi Minh, especially on your own. But this guided tour makes it possible: Visit a family home, take a horse-cart ride, and boat through canals (upgrade for a bike tour). A small group size means plenty of time to ask questions.
  • Enjoy the best of the Mekong Delta in a day trip from Ho Chi Minh
  • Boat through canals, ride a horse-cart, meet a family, and taste fruits
  • Includes lunch and transportation; upgrade for a bike tour
  • Small group means plenty of personal attention

Hi, do you mean the little boat? If so yes you can avoid this by just staying on the big boat
