What people are saying about Tien Giang Province

Great tour lead by Bao - he was so enthusiastic, kind and knowledgeable. The pace of the tour is good, the transport is very comfortable and the lunch was delicious. We are vegan but we were catered to no problem. Bao was lots of fun and told us many interesting facts about the area, local culture and history. This tour is a great experience :) thank you Bao!

The trip was excellent from start to finish. Our guide Mr. Fa was very nice and provided loads of interesting information about all the locations visited. We might have been “lucky” with our timing, as no parts of the trip were crowded. The lunch was great as well, maybe enhanced a bit by the great location. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

The overall experience is quite formula driven with a lot of tourists but still worth it. The guide Dominic was outstanding with extreme knowledge of everything you can imagine. We got (driven by our questions) a thorough history lesson of Vietnam on the 2 hour car ride to the delta.

Tu was an amazing your guide. We loved exploring the Mekong Delta. He was very informative and gave us a great insight into the culture. Thanky-you Tu for making our experience more enjoyable

Great day and really very interesting, with our excellent and very caring guide Nim. Perfect organization, too. I really recommend, the landscapes are captivating!
