What people are saying about Cái Răng

The trip was superb. We had a wonderful cheery guide (Tinh) who led us in an action packed adventure, gently and successfully encouraging us to try unusual things (snake wine!). Small boat trip in Ben Tre province a highlight. Overnight, the Hotel was absolutely fine and the Can Tho night market suggested by the guide was a good, very accessible experience in our independent time after arriving. The floating market is fun and definitely worth the 2 day option. Ideally bring small denomination currency for extras throughout - e.g. local honey from the beehives we saw or a coffee/some fruit in the floating market, and hiring bicycles to explore on the second day.

It was a really good overview of what the Mekong Delta has to offer. Our guide Golden/or Gordan was great. There was a lot of activities to maximize our time. Great trip to make your way towards Cambodia, less driving than going back to HCMC.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The stops made along the way were very interesting. Our guide was knowledgeable and went above and beyond to be helpful.

Excellent tours. Well organized and the guide (Minh) was very good! Super recommended.

Great Trip, great atmosphere provided by our tour girl Tinh!
