- Route and excursions may be subjects to changes without prior notice
- On even dates, you will have lunch at the Mekong Rest Stop. On odd dates, lunch is served in Vinh Long City.
- The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are no tourist markets but wholesale markets where produce of the Mekong Delta like fruits and vegetables are traded. For this reason the number of boats on the market fluctuates depending on harvesting seasons and market demand. Furthermore, modern wholesale markets are becoming more popular in Vietnam. This can result in decreasing numbers of boats being present on the markets.

We were picked up at our hotel ready for a 4 hour drive to meet our crew and boat. On arrival our guide and waiter Dave met us and provided an orientation of the boat. Our cabin had a king size bed (2 king singles pushed together) allowing for twin bedding if required. A large bathroom with toilet and shower was attached to the room. The shower was dirty and mould visible on the shower curtain. Meals were amazing! 4 course lunches and dinners and all very fresh food from local markets. Breakfasts included choice of eggs and fruit. Beverages could be bought onboard but wine was very expensive ranging from 550000 dong up. Dave our guide, lead us everywhere and was very informative about his home land. He provided a wealth of knowledge and was very helpful throughout the tour. For the price range, the level of service was outstanding and can recommend to anyone who is visiting Saigon and the Mekong Delta.

Cute little room with ample space for our one night cruise. The food was good but not excellent. Fabulous sunset. Very interesting walk to local smallholding, market, noodle factory and floating market.

The organization is perfect for us to discover on this beautiful sampam the Mekong and its peripheral activities including those of local residents and also the brick factories and delicious confectionery. The house of the lover of Marguerite Duras as well as the various markets including the famous float of Cai rank have completed our curiosity. The crew and our dynamic guide knew how to do everything to satisfy us with both efficiency, discretion and exemplary kindness. .

Our one-night cruise in a private sampan was wonderfully memorable. Boat is beautiful, designed with rattan throughout and outfitted with two beds and two commodious bathrooms with showers, allowing, but not requiring, sharing with friends. Staff was extremely friendly but not at all intrusive. English-speaking guide was very courteous and helpful. Boat is equipped with comfortable chairs at front of boat from which you take in sites and sounds on river. Your experience with river life is intimate, novel and enriching. My wife and I felt like river royalty. Highly recommended!!

The sampan is the ideal way to stroll the waters of the Mekong. The interior space is very well designed with its two bedrooms, a bathroom, the dining area and the lounge at the front of the boat turned into a third bedroom for the night. The crew, very kind, knows how to be discreet despite the limited space. Our French-speaking guide introduced us to a coconut candy factory and a brick factory. The morning was occupied by the visit of the floating market of Cai Rang. A mini cruise to do absolutely.
