I am not sure on the cost of this tour as it was organised for us. It does give you an insight into what the river and the people that live around it are like as well. The boat we were on was interesting to say the least with chairs that are not screwed down. Part of the tour was... More

We were not sure what to expect despite reading other reviewers and doing research, but I got to admit that this was the best trip so far I have done. We booked through Expedia, who used local tour company called Vietnam Tour Group Company. We were picked up from hotel on time, and drove for about so hours in air... More

An enjoyable day out and a variety of things to see and do. Well worth the money, make sure you take your camera and wear comfortable footwear. You will do some walking and also get in and out of a few different boats.

My husband and I have been on many cruises in the past and this was by far the worst cruise ever. It was our first and last Mekong River Cruise or any river cruise with VIKING RIVER CO. ever. For this cruise we paid over $10,000 and it was awful, boring, disappointing and here are the reasons why: Air Conditioner:... More

This trip was very nice and very well organized. A tourist company picked up us on time in front of the hotel and we spent all day in the river. We loved the coconut candy and the food was good, but be careful with the fresh vegetables. The canoe ride was very nice and the people were just amazing. They... More

Organised through the Hoang Ngan hotel, the Happy Tour day adventure to the Mekong Delta @ US$30 all inclusive was well worth the effort and time to get a glimpse of the region, it's people and their activities. The coconut candy was delicious as was the honey/royal jelly tea. The canoe trip through the mangroves was a virtual highway of... More

This trip is worth doing, but be prepared for a lot of time on the coach. Most of it was good, apart from I would say towards the end, which I found very cringeworthy when the locals bring out a band to play music, these elderly guys are so out of tune, they make the singer sound good, which was...

It's a long road trip before the bus stops at Mekong river. Do bring along food and drink as the bus will only make a toilet stop. During the trip, we may see the true colors of Vietnam. It's a nice view to see how Vietnamese runs their daily life. When the bus stop at the jetty, it'll be a... More

A great value for money day out to experience some of the mekong delta. Fantastic scenic views, three different boat rides through local villages with stop offs to the bee farm to taste the honey, sample the lovely fruits and watch the locals making coconut candies. A delicious lunch of many Vietnamese dishes including the tasty fried elephant ear fish.
