A perfect organization, plenty of space on the boat, we were only six, an excellent, freshly prepared food and Say a sympathetic, competent guide made the tour a great experience. Despite the not cheap price, we can highly recommend the tour.

Who can do that? Take a picture or a video cam. 2 days to let nature pass by, a varied nature with many faces. The advantage of this ride: you get down so nothing with Action.Man is in another world that is slowly breaking. Here it seems to be still normal although the signs of the time by the deforestation already recognizes. This ride gives the head over other things that seem so important to us. Care and food 1A. Extremely recommended value

My friend told me: “ If you want to know about the riverside life you should visit Mekong delta in Vietnam. And there is a town like little Vernice with numerous narrow canals” It made me curious. So when I had free time I came there. It was so exciting to experience the little “Vernice” – Sa Dec town. I also had good chance to see the coconut factory, wrapped the delicious coconut candy in other town but I don’t remember name. It is too difficult to remember Vietnamese name. People living along the riverside were so warm and nice. They all smiled and waved our group whenever they realized us there. One more unforgettable thing was touching the big python and tasting snake meat with 7 ways of cooking. Yummy! I was so lucky to travel with this travel agent`s support. I like the organization way, very professional, promptly reacted to my require and very safe to pay online. Recommendable!
