Ben Tre Day Tour

09:00 am: Pick you up at Ham Luong dock, you will take a boat and then cruise along Ham Luong River, a tributary to the Mekong River. The cool breeze from the river and lush tropical islands along its banks will immediately get you excited to explore all the great things ahead.

Arrive and visit various local workplaces to find many wonderful examples of how local people use ageless techniques to create their crafts, including activated charcoal, dried coconut, handy coconut husk brooms, and many family businesses using coir, or coconut fiber, to create amazing art. Cruise around the village roads by “Xe Lôi”, the local vehicle, which is a kind of motorized rickshaw. Have lunch at local host house.

After lunch, you will have some time for relaxing and then  Kayak through the natural canals to get a unique experience of the peaceful beauty of the Mekong River as well as the rural life there. At the end of day, return to Ham Luong Dock at 17:00. Finish our services.

Very enjoyable trip

We had a very nice trip to Ben Tre. Funny and positive guide, and we experienced a lot. We did especially like the bike trip. My son tried to climb a coconut tree, and that was fun. We loved the place where we had lunch, and also the boat trip.

Wonderful Private Tour

Had a wonderful full day BenTre tour with our friendly and humorous guide, A private Mekong tour. Also very thankful to the driver who got us from place to place safely and smoothly.

Toan was very informative on Vietnam, in particular, Ho Chi Minh and the Mekong Delta. Feel free to ask him any questions, he will be more than happy to answer! A whirlwind of a tour, plenty of activities and sightseeing: local temple, wet market, villages, chilli farm, paddy fields, rice mill, rivers, plantations etc. We went on a car, a scooter and on boats. Had great lunch by the waterfront.

Tour provides an insight to the daily lives of the Mekong folk. Toan would impart his knowledge gained growing up in the Mekong. For instance, how many ways a banana tree could be used, from its fruits to its leaves. Btw, the bananas grown on his estate was fantastic. Sweet and plump.

We felt safe under Toan’s care. He was also offered to take photos and videos of us on the boat rides. Really appreciate that.

Would also like to thank his family and relatives’ hospitality. The snake infused wine was great.

Recommend this tour if you’re looking for a fuss-free, safe, extensive and insightful tour on the lives of the Mekong people.

We did a great one-day Mekong tour with Asiatouradvisor! We were afraid a one-day tour wouldn’t be satisfying, but we felt they managed to show us everything! We had a great lunch and our tour guide was good at explaining everything about the Delta. Would definitely recommend!

A must do adventure
Reviewed On: Jan 19, 2018Anja SchGermany

Our full day adventure was most capably carried out by our bus driver and our tour guide, not to mention the boat operators and the hosts at the bee and coconut venues. Also we were served a delicious lunch which included spring rolls and fish. At the outset, tour guide’s presentation about all aspects of Viet Nam and Vietnamese life was both informative and fascinating, as well as rendered in impeccable English. The exploration of the islands and the Buddhist temple was exciting trip.
The bus was very comfortable and the tour guide ensured that our group had great fun together. Our day turned about to be longer than expected but well worth it in terms of discovering the region.

Day Trip to Mekong Delta
Reviewed On: Jan 16, 2018John GeddieUnited Kingdom

We spent the day with our tour guide, Not only was she was a very knowledgeable tour guide, she was also fun and had a good sense of humor! I highly recommend her as your guide.
The tour was well worth the money. We started off driving through the city as Dana narrated what we were seeing.
The trip included many stops along the way… Food market, a roadside stand where some people bought exotic meats, and several other locations where we watched locals making candy, wine, and popped rice.Many of the locations were accessed by a boat trip along the Mekong Delta.
The trip lasted all day and we enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommend this tour on your next trip to Ho Chi Minh City.

Mekong River Day Trip
Reviewed On: Jan 09, 2018Mireya DelgadilloMexico

Definitely worth a visit to Mekong River.
Our tour guide is a very attentive, friendly, polite, informative and helpful person.
Arrived on time to wait for us at the lobby, explain our itinerary and told us many information about Saigon past and present.
I also noticed that he privately give the tips to the person who row the boat even my family member also did so. I think it’s because we gave too little as my country is not used to tipping.
i would definitely recommend those who do not want to join tour with other people that u should try private tour, especially for those who travel with big family. All u have to do is sit back and relax and enjoy!

Fantastic Day
Reviewed On: Jan 02, 2018Adrian HughesNew Zealand

The Mekong Delta is a fascinating place to visit. We were treated to some exceptional experiences including a coconut far and a brick factory. The weavers were also interesting. Cruising on the rivers is lovely and we learnt a lot about the Vietnamese people and how they have survived over the ages. Drinking milk from a fresh coconut was something new for me. We were also given different tropical fruits to sample.

We travelled on 3 different boats, one of which was just a rowing boat. It was exciting to have to lower the canopy to fit under some of the bridges when the tide came up.
Access to and from the boats was a little difficult for some tourists but there was plenty of help available. Great way to spend a day.
