Best Tour Operator for Mekong Delta

Hi all,

We are in HCMC soon and want to go on a day trip along the Mekong Delta. Ideally it should include the Floating Market, maybe a cooking class and the Coconut Candy factory and beautiful scenery and villages along the river. Any respectable tour operators you can recommend? There are so many online, it's difficult to make a decision.

Thanks!

If you would like to see the floating markets, head to Can Tho for overnight stay and do a boat ride next early morning.

Thanks, but we are limited with time so don't have time to go somewhere else. Any tours without floating market that are good? I'm more concerned about good tour operators, safety etc..

we went with RealMekongDelta tours which were very good. We did the Real Mekong 1 day trip, but instead of returning to HCMC we got them to drop us at the bus depot at Mythos and we continued to Can Tho under our own steam by bus. The real mekong delta 1 day tour is aimed at authentic non touristy experiences, so no coconut candy visit or visit to Unicorn Island at all

Is this a day tour or overnighter? Because Can Tho is too far away for a day trip. I would got to Ben Tre for a day only trip, even then its a long day with a few hours of travel each way. Maybe a trip through the canals in the coconut plantations

There is coconut candy there too

Try Tour with Xuan we spent 3 days with him in April. He is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly would not hesitate to use him again.

I 1000% recommend Can Tho River Tour, and I looked around a lot. We found them in Can Tho, by the river, a very nice booth, clean, perfect English, incredible tour choices. They were one of the three best tour operators we have experienced, world-wide, so this recommendation comes highly, particularly for the guide Louis.

Here is the review I did of them and their contact info from just last month: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-…

We did the half-day tour, but they have something like 12 different tours, some in the morning, some in the afternoon, all different, all really special.

I think if you look at the reviews, you'll see they are all pretty good, actually.
