What people are saying about Cần Thơ

Informative and eventful in a very pleasant atmosphere

The whole tour was just great! Interesting facts and stories about the country, people and more, as well as wonderful experiences, great conversations and exciting encounters all day long. The tour program was implemented perfectly! In addition, Thao, our travel companion, impressed us with her friendly, warm and natural manner. And our driver brought us very safely through the basically chaotic traffic.

Nice one day trip.
