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.
With an orchestra of traditional musical instruments like “dan tranh, dan kim, dan ty ba, dan co, dan bau, ong tieu, song loan”, sons of Mekong Delta River invented the most charming kind of music called “Tai Tu Music” which has the origin from the 19th century, and also is recognized by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage from 2013. Listeners will possibly never forget the feelings when they are sitting around on the mats, immersing the smooth tunes and rhyme of conventional songs, finding their inner peace and forget all the busy, rushing life out there.
Hence the chances to discover the charm of Southern Vietnam in terms of natural and cultural values are the special offers when you approach to “Essence of Mekong Delta Holidays”.
Besides enjoying music, you also have distinctive experience of homestay as well as enjoy the beauty of Mekong River Delta in the early morning by both land and waterway.
