Very well organised tour. Went on my own and was great setting my own pace. Loi my guide is a lovely man full of information. Even liked the drive there.
It was just perfect. Funny, complete, always at time… Ms Tee and the driver were kind all the time. Don’t miss the Mekong Delta, is a unique experience.
I travelled for the first time to Ho Chi Minh with my husband and 3 kids and had been lucky to be in contact with Jenny at Vietnam Discovery. Jenny even arranged for our visa application, airport transfers and private tours to Cu Chi tunnels and to Mekong delta. The vehicles were impeccably clean and almost new and the driver and guide very friendly and helpful. A special thanks also to our guide, Luu Binh, whose company my kids enjoyed. Thank you Vietnam discovery for making our short trip very sweet and enjoyable.
Wake up early when the sky is not still dark but there are sunbeams at the skyline, have a light – just light breakfast as you will have a chance to try other delicious foods in a new way and start your day on boat to one of the biggest floating market in the Mekong Delta – Cai Be floating market. This great market is sure to bring you another opportunity to trade and taste food not in land but on moving boats on Tien River that you have never tried it before.
