Excellent experience with this tour. Really private, we haven't seen any other tourists and the views were amazing. We had the chance to visit local markets with locals only, went through the river on a private boat without seeing anyone else. Great tour, I really recommend and it is worth the price !!

The overall experience is quite formula driven with a lot of tourists but still worth it. The guide Dominic was outstanding with extreme knowledge of everything you can imagine. We got (driven by our questions) a thorough history lesson of Vietnam on the 2 hour car ride to the delta.

What a great day we had excellent service great car safe driver
