Mekong Delta Discovery Small Group Adventure Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
From US$52.00
Overview
Head deep into the heart of the Mekong Delta on this guided full-day tour, without having to worry about transportation. Enjoy the scenery during the trip from Ho Chi Minh City; then step aboard a private long-tail boat to explore the river and hear about its unique ecosystem. Lunch and samples of regional specialties, such as coconut candy and tropical fruit, are included.
What to Expect
Meet at Saigon Opera House, and board a climate-controlled coach for the 2.5-hour journey through the Vietnamese countryside to the Mekong Delta. Wear clothing that covers your knees and shoulders, as you’ll be visiting rural areas. 

Arrive at My Tho, the bustling port, and board your group’s private long-tail boat. As you travel, your guide will fill you in on the area’s culture and history. Stop on an island to taste tropical fruit right off the tree, and another to tour a coconut candy factory, where you’ll get a taste and and see how it’s made.

Learn about delta life through stops at local villages and informative talks from your guide. You’ll take a xe loi, or motorized cart, to a local bee farm, as well as a rowboat to gain access to hard-to-reach areas deeper in the delta.

Midday, stop at a local restaurant for a lunch of local Mekong cuisine. Finally, ride back to Ho Chi Minh City’s Opera House.

Set expectations

This is not a wilderness day trip through a rustic delta. It is an agricultural tour through a pretty commercial area. My expectations were wrong. I’m really glad that I had the experience but it was somewhat staged and slightly uncomfortable at times. The sampan...More

I am sure they would adapt the tour. There was quite a bit of time sat at lunch / on the boat / inside looking a candy plantation factory and sharing the tropical fruits. There would be far worse day tours eg outside walking... More

We had an all day tour. From memory we were at the opera house by around 8 or 9am which was a short walk from our hotel and then we chose the local markets as our drop off in the afternoon and I think we arrived back around... More

No, not needed at all. You won’t visit any religious areas. If you are travelling soon, it’ll probably be hot (as it was for us) so I would definitely recommend opting for very light clothing. Make sure you wear practical... More
