Arrival in Ho Chi Minh City

As you touch down at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, our warm and welcoming guide will be waiting for you at the baggage claim. Keep an eye out for a sign adorned with the Asia Tour Advisor logo and your name. This friendly face will not only ensure a smooth transition to your hotel but will also provide you with an initial introduction to the city.

The remainder of the day is all yours to unwind, get acclimated to your surroundings, and start exploring. Ho Chi Minh City, known for its vibrant energy, never sleeps. Whether you're keen on sampling delectable street food, enjoying the panoramic views from the historic Rex Hotel's rooftop bar, or uncovering historical sites from the Vietnam War era, your guide is ready to offer personalized recommendations that cater to your interests.

Ho Chi Minh City Tours - Cu Chi Tunnels

The morning begins with a pick-up at your hotel, and we set off for the Cu Chi Tunnels. These underground networks played a crucial role in the Vietnam-American War and offer an intriguing day trip. You'll delve into these mysterious tunnels, uncover hidden doors, and learn about once-lethal traps used during the war.

Following a hearty lunch at Cu Chi, we return to Ho Chi Minh City, where the afternoon presents options. Depending on your preferences, you can visit the War Remnants Museum or the History Museum, and explore the former Presidential Palace. As the day winds down, take a leisurely stroll through the city's colonial streets. Be captivated by the charm of Old Saigon Post Office, Dong Khoi Street (formerly Rue Catinat), Continental Hotel, Opera House, and City Hall.

Mekong Delta Tours – Ben Tre – Can Tho

After a nourishing breakfast at your hotel, your guide will whisk you away to the town of Ben Tre, renowned as the "Coconut Capital" of the Mekong Delta. At Ham Luong dock, you'll board a boat, embarking on a tranquil cruise along the Ham Luong River, one of the Mekong's tributaries. The cool breeze and lush tropical islands lining the riverbanks will instantly pique your curiosity and set the tone for your upcoming adventures.

Arriving in Ben Tre, you'll have the opportunity to visit local workshops, where you can witness the time-honored methods used by residents to craft various items. These crafts range from activated charcoal and dried coconut to essential coconut husk brooms. You'll also encounter family businesses using coir, coconut fiber, to create intricate works of art. For a unique local experience, take a ride in a "Xe Lôi," a motorized rickshaw, as you cruise around the village roads.

Additionally, you can explore small villages, visit fruit plantations, and enjoy the accompaniment of traditional Southern Vietnamese folk music. After this enriching morning, savor a local home-cooked meal.

The afternoon offers opportunities to kayak through natural canals, immersing yourself in the serenity of the Mekong River and rural life. You'll also have the chance to prepare special Vietnamese dishes while food is cooked by you, and enjoy this meal amid the idyllic garden setting. Cycling along village paths, you'll meet local islanders and gain insight into their daily lives in the Mekong Delta.

As the sun sets, you'll be transferred to Can Tho, where you'll check in to your hotel, and the rest of the evening is yours to enjoy.

Can Tho – Cai Rang Floating Market - Phu Quoc

Your day kicks off with a leisurely boat journey in the morning to explore the picturesque tributaries of the Lower Mekong River, specifically the Bassac River. Subsequently, you'll visit the bustling Cai Răng floating market, one of the most vibrant in the entire region.

Have you ever savored Vietnamese vermicelli soup? Today, you'll have the opportunity to see how it's made and, of course, taste it for yourself. Stroll through the village, meet friendly locals, and even experience crossing a "Monkey bridge," ingeniously constructed from a single bamboo stem. You'll also embark on a walking excursion to visit a fruit plantation and a local noodle factory.

Adding a unique cultural dimension to your day, you'll visit Binh Thuy communal house and Munir Ansay Pagoda, a remarkable Khmer pagoda known for its distinctive architecture. Following these experiences, you'll be transported to the airport for your flight to Phu Quoc Island. Once on the island, our team will be there to greet you and ensure a smooth transfer to your hotel. The afternoon and evening offer a tranquil opportunity to relax on the famed pristine island beach.

Phu Quoc Island - Snorkeling and Fishing in the South

After enjoying a fulfilling breakfast at your hotel, the day's adventure begins with a cruise to the twelve captivating southern islands off the coast of Phu Quoc. You'll partake in thrilling snorkeling and fishing experiences at three of the most enchanting spots surrounding these islands, all while relishing the pristine beaches and exploring the underwater coral reef kingdom.

Onboard the ship, you'll be treated to a refreshing fruit platter while you bask in the tropical sunshine and marvel at the stunning surroundings. As the day unfolds, we'll take you to Bai Sao Beach, an exquisite hidden gem known for its perfect white sands and turquoise waters. It's the kind of beach that will leave you daydreaming for years to come.

Free Day on Phu Quoc Island

You have a full day to explore Phu Quoc Island at your leisure. Whether you prefer to soak up the sun, take a refreshing swim, embark on a jeep expedition through the island's interior, or participate in a scuba diving day trip, the choice is yours.

Phu Quoc Island is a paradise waiting to be explored. Apart from its breathtaking beaches, the island boasts local villages where time seems to stand still, preserving the traditional way of life passed down through generations. Jeeps will take you through the island's heart, giving you a close look at the production of Phu Quoc's renowned fish sauce, visits to extensive pepper plantations, and encounters with tiny fishing communities.

Phu Quoc Island – Ho Chi Minh City

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your hotel, and make the most of your morning free time. Then, we'll be there to pick you up and escort you to the airport for your flight back to Ho Chi Minh City. As you arrive in Ho Chi Minh City, we'll be waiting to transport you to your hotel. The rest of the day is yours to spend as you please.

Departure from Ho Chi Minh City

Savor a leisurely morning with free time to explore and enjoy the city's offerings. Your private car will arrive to transport you to the airport for your onward journey.

Great Tour and Great Time in Island
Reviewed On: Feb 02, 2018AndyUnited States

Our tour guide Thanh took us on a private tour for the two of us on trip to the Mekong Delta and it was a fantastic day. He was informative, funny and a pleasure to spend the day with. There were a number of stops to stretch the legs and we were well looked after with fruit from the local market, an offer to taste cobra wine, fried rice paper snacks and a good lunch.
Finishing Mekong Delta, we head to PhuQuoc by flight from Can Tho. We have great time in PhuQuoc Island with Richis Resort. Richis Beach Resort is located in a perfect spot, in the middle of Tran Hung Dao str, perfect distance from night market, one of the must-go locations. In general, services here are great and people are super very friendly. However, the breakfast menus could be better in term of variety and quality. Thank you so much for a pleasant break! I’d be recommending my friends to take this trip!

Terrific experience
Reviewed On: Jan 17, 2018Mamta ThakurMalaysia

We have booked this tour with some reservations but after reading reviews on Tripadvisor decided to go. Everything was organized perfectly – pickup on-time, comfortable ride in an air-conditioned mini van, great driver and food.
Our guide was very informative and entertaining, all the changes of transport, and we have used 3 different types of boats, were arranged so well that we did not have to wait anywhere for more than 3-4 minutes. Even heavy tropical rain lasted only while we were having lunch under the roof.
Having a small group, 8 people, was additional advantage as we did not have to wait for somebody like it often happens in large groups. All together very entertaining trip and very good experience.
