This tour was great. We were picked up from the hotel on time, on the way to the Delta the tour guide David, although not his Vietnamese name told us loads of really interesting stuff about Ho Chi Minh, the Mekong Delta and Vietnam in general. We stopped at a temple which was beautiful, Unicorn island was amazing, we were fed loads of treats and were home by late afternoon. Favourite moments: Rowing through the water coconuts and drinking the honey tea. Would highly recommend this exact trip. Thanks!

The overall tour was quite good having experienced the different boat rides on Mekong etc. However 2 main things to point out - 1st was pairing with other tourists who booked the same trip. We were put together with a group of Asian men with their Vietnamese girlfriends which is fine but the Asian men were boasting non-stop about their 'adventures' in bed with the ladies. It would have been better if they were put in a group by themselves. 2nd point is the honey, coconut candy and fruits stop - that was rather waste of time : Guide was rather good and informative.

Made reservations the day before trip and was a little concerned about being picked up as we did not receive a reply from the tour operator but they picked us up on time and the trip was great. Multiple boat trips in big and small boats, Donkey kart ride and many other things to keep you busy all day. One memorable thing was tasting snake wine. The guide ask me if I would like to try it and handed me a shot glass with rice wine and it was not bad. Afterwards I took a look at the jar he was getting it from and there was several cobras in it. On the way back to the city they stopped at a Buddhist temple that was amazing.
