Full description
Your tour begins hotel pickup in Ho Chi Minh City between 7:30 AM and 8:00 AM. Travel by minivan or bus to My Tho, a city situated on the Mekong Delta. Take part in a variety of activities that will offer you the chance to get to know Vietnam. Hop aboard a horse-drawn cart and admire the coconut trees that dominate the landscape. Row down the canal in a small boat, then cycle down provincial roads to see the rice fields, pineapple plantations, orchards, and small hamlets. Ride a motorboat down the mighty Mekong River and see Dragon Island, Phoenix Island, and Turtle Island. Stop at the famous Unicorn Island and visit a local bee farm. Taste natural honey along with honey wine, rice wine, and banana wine. Walk through the village, then visit a coconut candy workshop and learn how to make coconut candies. Hop back on the motorboat and travel along lush green canals to a local restaurant where you'll enjoy a Vietnamese lunch. Venture to another part of the island and enjoy tropical fruit as you listen to traditional south Vietnamese music. If you choose the "Luxury Tour Group Tour" option then after this delicious snack, you will take you back to My Tho to visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda. Enjoy the convenience of hotel drop-off once the bus has returned you to Ho Chi Minh City.

Overall, the tour was good but I noticed one thing. There was an elderly couple who had a hard time getting in and out of the boat. The guide did a good job helping the couple, but the boat started moving before one of the elderly couple was seated. The boat operator and the guide should have communicated better to make sure everyone, especially the elderly, is seated before moving the boat.

We had a great day and a perfectly organized tour. Everything is very touristic in the Mekong delta so there are a lot of other tourists but it is a great experience and you get to know everything in just one day. We were very lucky with our tour guide Thinh who is very funny and knows nearly everything about life in Vietnam. So also the bus ride was very interesting and we learned a lot about Vietnam and the people. Thank you for the nice day! We can highly recommend this tour.
