It's a good tour, a very intimate group and not much other tourist around. The only problem is that the itinerary has no specific duration.. so we didn't know that the bike plus kayaking is 30mins in total. So it was not so worth it. The rest of it was really good despite that.

Our trip today was so amazing with our guide Long on the Mekong. Boat rides, kayaking, a ton of history, snake wine, a food class, a bike ride, wonderful spring rolls and lunch, songs too, and just a great understanding of the Vietnamese culture and customs. Booked it last night late and they even managed to organise a hotel pick up last minute. Honestly, couldn’t ask for more! Highly recommended for an interesting day trip out of Saigon...

We had a nice day and we got a feeling of the region for a very reasonable price. The activities during the day were very diverse (a short cooking class, kayaking, a bicycle ride, tour with the bigger boot and the small traditional one, visit of a tropical garden with fruit testing, a traditional Music show) and the tour was in general very well planned (except for big delays due to the traffic and due to other group members). It was also interesting to see the process of producing coconut and rice sweets. This stop was inside a small tourist shop, where you could buy souvenirs. I would have liked that the tour with the small boot would have been longer, but due to the low tide it was a bit difficult to go further and discover the beautiful small arms of the Mekong delta. Our tour guide Sâng was very professional and a friendly person. As we were very late on our way back due to traffic, he helped us a lot to catch our flight - thanks a lot.
