What people are saying about Bến Tre

The tour was as advertised and included a lot of activities. Our guide, Kevin, was helpful and funny. We enjoyed him. It was great to see the Mekong. I do want to note that I felt the tour was too long, especially in the summer heat. I would like to suggest that the tour company consider offering a half or three-quarter day tour. We were ready to go after lunch.

Handsome Ben was a delight. He had a great plan, he kept it entertaining, moving along, and was very thoughtful and aware of everyone in the group. He was an exceptional guide. The bang for the buck from this excursion couldn’t be beat! 100% do this if you have an extra day in Saigon.

Very happy, it is a very complete excursion and you enjoy it a lot. It must also be said that the place is a tourist attraction, but I think it is worth going. The guide a 10 !!!! His name was Bell, very enthusiastic and always explaining many things to us with a smile.

It’s a good experience. Our guide had a veryfluent english. Bus was comfortable also. They did everything that was in the schedule. Good option if you don’t have too much time

You can enjoy it all day with lunch and I think this amount is cheap.
