The company was very organised and regularly checked our booking before we arrived to make sure everything went smoothly. Our guide was amazing. He hosted our small group very professionally. Our guide demonstrated his intimate local knoweldge with stories and he had an uncanny ability to steer us away from crowds without compromising on the experience. We all learned a lot about life in the marvellous Mekong Delta. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

The trip has been a very interesting experience. Coming outside from the Vietnamese culture, I've never expected to get so close to the rural life as is without the tourist taint. Seeing the coconut kingdom where the locals sang, eating the early morning pineapples while they are being cut have been some of the highlights of my trip. The weather was humid and hot throughout, but the chilled bus helped and the food helped tremendously! The meals were delicious and worth the try for anyone undecided. The fried elephant fish in rice papers goes on my personal favourite list for all the cuisines tasted. I would recommend that you wear pants to enjoy the full extent of the trip. I wore a skirt on the second day and couldn't go on the bike trip! And please be respectful of the culture and cover your knees, shoulders when entering the pagoda. Lastly, the trip wouldn't have been the same without Ut, aka Akira, who had the very kind demeanor and was courteous throughout the trip. Highly recommended for any travelers to join him for the 3 day madness.
