Our tour guide was very patient and gave us in-depth overview of the mekong river. She also answer promptly to all our queries regarding the river. She speaks fluent english which is very important for tourist like me and was easy to understand. Keep up the good work!

I would recommend this trip for anyone interested in seeing the Mekong Delta by boat and experiencing the Vietnamese culture. The guide was really friendly and proficient. The food was delicious, especially the coconut candy. The price-quality ratio is great.
