Our tour guide, Viet, is very professional, engaging and hilarious! He made us feel at ease. The bus felt luxurious and I’m glad it was a small group (<10pax). This was really an adventurous tour. There was a bicycle activity around the local village but my bicycle broke down halfway :( Thankfully Viet switched bikes with me and I continued for the rest of the journey. Kayaking was also another activity but you can’t kayak if there’s low tide. when we got in the water, it started pouring! But that’s beyond the guide and the tour’s control so we headed back to the dock. I really enjoyed the cooking class and rowing boat. Journey from HCM to Cai Be is around 2-2.5 hours, not too bad!

Nice tour to get a sense of the Delta Mekong area if you only have 1 day. Our guide Kang was very enthusiastic to show us around the area he was from, very kind and friendly! This is one of the tours that go the furthest from Ho Chi Minh and it was worth it, less touristy than the closer areas. However, do not expect to see the floating markets of your dreams: unfortunately there is basically no market left anymore after Covid (maybe in further areas, if you can stay overnight).

It's a good tour, a very intimate group and not much other tourist around. The only problem is that the itinerary has no specific duration.. so we didn't know that the bike plus kayaking is 30mins in total. So it was not so worth it. The rest of it was really good despite that.
