Full description
Hamlets and busy towns are dependent on the innumerable canals, tributaries and markets in the region that overflow with fish and a variety of produce yielded by the delta’s rich alluvial soil, including rice, sesame, peanuts, cashews, pineapples, dragon fruit and durian. Enjoy countless opportunities to capture amazing photos of the scenery and local people as we cruise past buffaloes ploughing fruit orchards and rice fields.  Spend time at a family homestead, where you’ll be invited to enjoy refreshing, freshly cut coconuts and fiery Mekong whisky. Your chef will prepare many Vietnamese dishes for lunch, such as fried elephant ear fish – a Mekong Delta specialty – Vietnamese spring rolls and lemongrass chicken, served at a local pagoda or school for underprivileged children. *Vegetarian or Halal meals are also available on request.

    My wife and I have just returned from the Authentic River Experience with our crew Huyen, Vinh and Nghia. What a great day out, we have learned so much about local culture but in enjoyable and friendly way. Our crew could not have been more attentive with treats and snacks from the moment we got on the boat to the moment we got off. I particularly enjoyed the market visit and they way that the local people were willing to engage and have a laugh. Lunch is a humongous affair, 7 courses, but all absolutely stunning local food. Highly recommended

    very well done and quite an interesting tour long day with a lot of walking on uneven ground in hot weather so not for some people the guide was great and gives you hope for the country as the river is so polluted but the government is at least trying to clean it up.

    We had an absolutely fantastic day, one of the best excursions we have ever done. The Speedboat experience was well worth the extra money than doing a coach trip, you got to see how locals lived along the river. The guide and helper were brilliant and very informative. Lunch was superb and definitely plentiful, as well as the breakfast, fruit and drinks provided! Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxed but interesting day out of hcm. We felt very looked after all day.
