We had high expectations with Asia Tour Advisor and were not disappointed but didn’t expect to be well fed too! Bang Lang stork garden was our first tour with Linh at 1:00 pm on the dot. During the comfortable drive, he provided fun insight into Vietnamese life. Stopped for coffee before arriving outside the park for 3 pm. An easy 20 minute stroll through a very friendly village and once we hit the bamboo forest, storks everywhere! Got a wonderful view of storks from the park’s platform and just 6 tourist there. Very impress with the tour but the icing was the wonderful local meal of sizzling pancakes. That was one of the best meals in Vietnam so many thanks Linh!!

The next morning, we had another amazing tour to Cai Rang Floating Market. So glad we started at 4:20 because by the time we finish at 7:00, vendors were starting to leave. Felt bad for the tourists arriving late – nothing for them to see. After a delicious bowl of pho and fresh fruits from the market, we explored a smaller canal and a noodle factory for more food! Our guide shine showing us the process herself…she kept us amused throughout the tour. Thanks Linh and Asia Tour Advisor tours for their outstanding service!

Amazing Mekong Delta tour guide
Reviewed On: May 13, 2017Karim SidaouiSwitzerland

I did the floating market tour, which started promptly at 5am. Our tour guide, Tea amazing. I do not exaggerate when I say that he had the best English out of all the tour guides I’ve had this far throughout my 2 week journey in Vietnam. He provided tons of insight into Vietnamese culture while sharing his own views on life in Vietnam. Also, he fed us a lot of food, which is always a plus. Overall, AsiaTourAdvisor is definitely recommended. The tour was well organized and all of the staff were extremely helpful.

Ten thumbs up!

Everything about this day was fantastic. The tour was extremely well managed, from start to finish. Our transport out of Saigon was punctual and comfortable and included a stop for Vietnamese iced coffee. Then we went to the floating market – What a unique experience! We were on our own private row boat and we stopped and ate a local noodle specialty and fresh pineapple from boat vendors while on board! Our guide, spoke excellent, clear English and was full of interesting information.
After perusing the floating market, we headed to a rice paper factory and ate ‘noodle pizza’ – fried noodles topped with herbs, an omelette, peanuts and shredded meat – It was delicious.( The tour could have billed itself as a food tour, as we were constantly trying new and delicious food!) The coconut and banana cakes in the main shop were also worth getting even more full for.
The next stop was a cocoa plantation, where we learned all about the chocolate process from cocao pod to bar. Fascinating! Try the chocolate wine, it was surprisingly tasty.
The second part of the trip was on motorbikes. We felt like we had to try out motorbike driving since it so much a part of modern Vietnamese culture! It was fun and exhilarating and we got to see lots of beautiful tropical back roads. We stopped at a jaw-dropping ficus tree as big as half a city block! The midday meal was at a lovely setting In the open air perched over a lily pad pond. The “bus” home was a luxury van!
Can’t say enough nice things about our guide. He was a real gem. Highly recommend this trip. Its hard to believe how much we stuffed into one day, when none of it seemed rushed and all of it was fun!
