Itinerary
Meet a guide at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel for transfer to the central pier, then enjoy a light breakfast as your speedboat sets out along the Saigon River.

Learn about the history and ecology of the Mekong Delta while navigating a network of canals and channels, and step off the boat at Tuong Van Pagoda for a walking tour. Return to the speedboat and continue downriver to a colorful market, then slip beneath a tropical canopy as you reach smaller and smaller tributaries.

Board a rowboat for a canal trip to a Mekong Delta village, with the option to taste fresh coconut, Mekong whiskey, and locally made wine. A traditional lunch will be served at a nearby pagoda before the tour continues to a Cao Dai temple and a Buddhist orphanage, the final stops of the day. Enjoy the afternoon light on the water during the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City, where a guide will transfer you to your hotel.

Excellent and very interesting tour of Ho Chi Minh city area by river

This tour stands out way above many others. Highly recommended. A short hotel pick-up by road and then 6 hours spent travelling from walking pace to 30 mph in a professionally crewed and well maintained speed boat. A crew of 4 taking care of a...More

Different and interesting tour

This is not your routine tour.and well worth choosing for a days adventure. Apart from the pick up, the whole tour is conducted by boat, and this gives you a quite different perspective of life along the canal which takes you to the delta. There...More
