The Mekong River tour guide and tour company are absolutely amazing. They will go out of their way to make the tour special and make their travellers feel at ease and extremely happy with the whole experience. I can not express enough how happy I am with this company and especially the people that manage and guide the tours. Thank you for being wonderful people. When my family and I book our tours of Vietnam I will definitely be going through the same company with the hope of receiving the same people to help and manage our tours. Thank you

I went with my too kids to the Mekong Delta tour and all of us enjoyed. The tour guide was friendly helpful and very informative and we learnt a lot about the places we went to and also about Vietnam in general. It’s a nice small tour and the kids had fun with the bicycle ride, boat ride, snake handling, bee farm and coconut farm. The candy was sugar free and my kids loved it. Very good value for money and I would heavily recommend it.
