Travel to the city of My Tho, a 2.5 hour journey, by air-conditioned mini-coach. A former naval base, My Tho is now a bustling port city in the Mekong Delta. The area is the final destination of the Mekong River which winds its way from Tibet, China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. An incredibly fertile region its prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam's total agricultural output. Life for villagers in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, people are more likely to transport by river than by road.

Upon arrival into My Tho you'll board a private boat for a cruise on the Mekong River. On the boat ride your local guide will take you to visit an island with lush tropical gardens where you'll have a chance to sample tropical fruit.

    This was a very interesting tour and we had an excellent guide. The food was great and although there were many tours happening at the same time you felt yours was the only tour happening.

    This whole experience was excellent. I was very impressed by the fact that the tour company went ahead with the tour as I was the only person booked that day. The guide for the day was Jay and he was great fun but incredibly knowledgeable with excellent English. The tour itself was really enjoyable
