What to expect
  • Start at 8:00AM & End at 5:00PM in Ho Chi Minh city. Departing from your Ho Chi Minh City. During the 1.5 hour drive, pass by green rice fields before arriving at the beautiful rural My Tho. The first stop is Vinh Trang pagoda. It is the biggest pagoda in the Mekong Delta region. Your morning trip continues from here by motorized boat on the Tien River to the Qui (Tortoise Islet). On the way, see the fishing port, boat-building workshops, and the Dragon, Phoenix and Unicorn Islet. Walk into the village, where you can visit a local fruit garden and enjoy the tropical fruit while listening to Southern Vietnamese folk music performed by islanders. Here you also can join daily activities of the local people and take in the atmosphere of this beautiful natural countryside. Visit the bee house, and take the picture of the snakes. Lunch will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. The boat cruise will lead you through Bao Dinh canal, entering Ben Tre province — "the land of coconuts." Here you'll see a typical agricultural model called "Garden - Pond – Cage,” before visiting the coconut candy-making shop. Next, enjoy a rowing boat trip on the small canal, fully covered by the shadow of the water coconut’s trees. After your boat ride, relax in a hammock or take a bike ride around the island before returning to the bus. You will arrive back in Ho Chi Minh City at around 4:30 to 5:00 PM.

We enjoyed a great day out starting with pick up from our hotel door, in a luxury 7 seats only, limousine van. We had the lovely Lucy tell us all about the history of Vietnam on our way to the temple and our boat ride to the villages along the Mekong. We visited many places and experienced many Vietnamese cultures. We had a Vietnamese lunch and enjoyed the boat and bam trip back to our hotel. Lucy was absolutely amazing and looked after our group so well. Even in this time of uncertainty with the virus outbreak everything was so clean and professional and we felt no danger at all. Thank you Miss Lucy and Vietnam Adventure tour for a fantastic day out. When we return will definitely book more tours with this company.

We took a guided day trip down to the Mekong Delta with Vietnam Adventure Tours. We left at 8 am and then took the bus down to the delta. The bus was excellent and very comfortable and Phu, our guide, was excellent. Superb sense of humor and full of energy and very interesting. We stopped at the Vinh Trang Pagoda to see what must be one of the largest Buddha's in the world. It towers above the entire complex and it is quite impressive. The Pagoda itself is a good sized complex and you can meander through the place at your leisure.

Back on the bus and off we went down to the river. We then jump onto a boat that takes us across the river to Unicorn Island and from there we get tea and some light entertainment. Then it is into a row boat and we are rowed to the next pick up point where we can watch them make candy all made from coconut. Then its back on the boat and across the river to the next destination where we have a lunch, a bike ride and then a bit of relaxation. There is one part of the trip where you can hold a snake (reticulated python)...I definitely passed on this one and then off you go for your lunch. Lunch was excellent...all local foods and then we headed back across the river to our bus for the return trip to Saigon.

Overall, it was nice day out. I personally would have enjoyed a bit more activity and less touristy stuff but it was a good day out. You do this kind of stuff when its your first time in a new place. Sometimes it works out and sometimes you just go with the flow.

Definitely worth going.

Have a good day out.

Enjoy!

The tour guide FA/KHOA really made the tour better. On our way to the first stop to the pagoda he told us a lot about Vietnamese culture. It was an 90 minute drive but it felt like half an hour because the guide entertained us with a lot of information. Nice boat trip in the mekong and nice honey tea. Really recommend this tour if you are in Ho Chi Minh City!
