What people are saying about My Tho

My family and I really enjoyed this 2 day trip in Mekong Delta and Cai Rang Market. Our tour guide Vinh was fabulous. He shares his knowledge with us and what to expect from the trip, answer every questions we asked and also recommended us good eating places. He is patience and cheerful throughout the whole journey. Vinh brought us to cycle after lunch at Mekong to enjoy the scenery. At Cai Rang, we get to paddle on a small boat to look at the rice paddy field. Worth going for it even though the bus journey to Mekong and Cai Rang can be a bit long. Thanks again Vinh for being our tour guide and make our trip there memorable.

The 2-day trip to the Mekong Delta was really fun and amazing! We were lucky to be the only couple that booked this tour for those days. We chose the 5-star option - the hotel was comfortable with various food options during breakfast. Our tour guide, Eddie, was super amazing! He is still very young and passionate about the job. He gave us a huge amount of information on the places we were visiting… his English was outstanding and he made the tour extra fun! Thank you for this experience, Eddie!

Our guide was fabulous, very friendly, informative and humorous. We travelled with 9 others in a comfortable bus and our overnight stay at a 5 star hotel was a good choice. The trip was a fantastic way to see more of the country and the stops along the way were very interesting. We were served lovely traditional lunches in formal restaurants and had more than enough food to eat. The boat rides did not disappoint and the walk through the on land market was an immersion in culture.

Our tour guide Kevin was personable and knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy showing us his culture. The trip was well planned and I would recommend it to anyone looking to explore the Mekong Delta

The tour was well organized and we experienced a lot
