The Mekong Delta experience was fantastic from the time I was picked up from my hotel. The tour guide was great (David), the tour was interesting and informative, the meal was lovely, the bike ride was fun. Topped off by lovely bus and boat drivers.

Overall experience was wonderful, exceed expectation. All thanks to our tour guide Tho. She was funny, helpful and gave us interesting information about Mekong river and Vietnamese cultures. The hotel pick up service was convenient. One slightly thing to improve was regarding booking confirmation. It will be better if Expedia listed both phone number and email address at the same time. So it will be convient for us to confirm booking since many of us would rather confirm through email instead of making overseas calls.

The tour guide was more of a translator than guide but it was still a fun day. I would recommend this tour for more adventurous travelers.
