I took the Mekong Delta tour with ATA and had a great time. They provided a different perspective to Vietnam that only a true local could provide. I’d definitely come back for another tour.

Interesting & Informative 5 Days tour in Ho Chi Minh & Around
Reviewed On: Feb 10, 2018Bill GrossUnited States

Our tour guide spoke wonderful English and was very knowledgeable.
The tunnels were neat to see and I felt my tour guide was reasonably unbiased when speaking about the war (which is a breath of fresh air of you’ve been to places like the War museum and had to read through all the propaganda).
Had a great day trip to the Mekong Delta. Lots of very useful information in the car on the drive from Saigon but not so much that you felt you were being talked at the whole time. Our guide made a point of giving us quiet time to just enjoy taking in the scenes on the way. Once there, the tour itself was very varied and the lunch in the small village was close to the best food we’ve eaten in Vietnam.
Thank Asia Tour Advisor for your organizing. We will recommend you to all my friends!

Highlight of our trip!
Reviewed On: Jan 16, 2018Man Oo WaiMyanmar

Booking and coordination were smooth and my pickup was on time. This is such a great way to experience Vietnam! I rode a large boat to the islands of the Mekong, then a small rowboat, a horse pulled cart, a small motorboat, and another large motorboat. We had an excellent lunch. We saw coconut candy making, had native fruits and listened to Vietnamese folk singing, saw a snake, crocodiles, and fish farming, sampled honey tea, banana liquor, banana snacks, coconut snacks and they provided a fresh coconut to during on one of the boat rides. Excellent value for what you get and experience.

Experience Homestay Tour!!!
Reviewed On: Jan 03, 2018Sally WongUnited Kingdom

We loved the Mekong Delta tour, especially that in the end we had a private tour. This was really great.
Everything was well organzied. The Guide had very good knowledge and spoke very good english.
For further bookings I chose to stay 1 night at homestay. I would like to suggest you to give some more information about “the homestay” within this programm.
As I booked the homestay I was aware of staying in a really simple place. But I actually did not expect to sleep almost in one room with the vietnamese family.
I stayed in many homestays during my travels, but in general we always had a least a private room. We actually did not sleep at all that night which was quite annoying for the following days. Furthermore the lady who speaks little englisch and welcomed us in the afternoon at the beginning was not there in the evening so there was nobody who spoke at least little english. This was really pitty. It would have beed great to asked some question about their daily live etc. but there was no communication at all possible. We actually really felt out of place.
If I compare the price for a 4 star hotel and the homestay I definitly do not understand the price for the homestay version, but ok. It was a real life experience. But you should explain the “homestay” more detailed in the future so people get an idea.
However, really enjoyed a wonderful trip with Mr. Than! He brought us so much fun! Nice attractions and food.

Floating markets and motorbike tours

It was quite incredible to be in a small boat at 5 am, sailing the Mekong River toward the floating markets near Can Tho. Our guide Phong was really interesting, easy to understand in English.
In the afternoon we rode a motorbike through the traffic in town to the countryside, lead by Our guide and her colleague (sorry I cannot remember the name). We saw peaceful places such as a priest site with a big old tree.
Asia Tour Advisor is a really nice and client oriented guy. He has built a skilled team. We do recommand his services! Mireia and Denis
