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.

Really good day and value for money. Could have done with more than an hour to enjoy the lunch though (which was really nice!) and relax a while afterwards. The tour guide was lovely and very informative.

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