Full description

Depart from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel and head to the Mekong Delta by minivan or bus. Pass by green rice fields before arriving at the beautiful rural My Tho. Your morning trip continues from here by motorized boat on the Tien River to the Qui (Tortoise islet). On the way, see the fishing port, boat-building workshops, and the Dragon, Phoenix, and Unicorn Islet. Walk into the village, where you can visit a local fruit garden and enjoy the tropical fruit while listening to Southern Vietnamese folk music performed by islanders. Join in the daily activities that the locals do and take in the atmosphere of this beautiful natural countryside. Visit the bee house, and take the picture of the pythons. Lunch will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. The boat cruise will lead you through the Bao Dinh canal, entering Ben Tre province — the land of coconuts. Here you'll see a typical agricultural model called "Garden – Pond – Cage” before visiting the coconut candy-making shop. Next, enjoy a rowing boat trip on the small canal, fully covered by the shadow of the water coconut trees. After your boat ride, take a bike ride around the island before returning to the bus.

It was very convenient -- pick up in morning and drop off in D1 area. Comfortable transportation and transfers between bus - boat - tuktuk. Exposed to variety of experiences such as traditional/local music, traditions, and food. Great tour guide -- Alex was a history teacher that had much to share about the history and culture of Vietnam. Helps elevate the tour beyond mere sightseeing, and gives better context to the sites we visited. :)

Being a tour guide myself, I thought that viet wasn’t very engaging. No way would I tell my guests to wander around for 30 to 40 mins on 3 occasions on there own. Tell me what I’m looking at! Tell me the history, the culture. Don’t leave us at the first opportunity .
