We had a fantastic day with Mr Le (Nick). He was super informative and friendly and we saw so many interesting things including a pagoda in the delta that was built and used by the Khymer people- it was breathtaking!

We couldn't have asked for a more packed, more wonderful day!

What made it was the people. When I stupidly dropped my phone into the delta, Mr Le organised for a local man to dive in an find it- he did and it was completely unharmed! I cant believe they did that, it was unbelievably kind!

Would absolutely reccomend this tour to anyone!

I had travelled previously to this region however my travelling companion had not seen the Delta so this trip appeared to offer a great one day overview of the region for a first time visitor. The advertised pick up time was 0400 however the guide arrived at 0335 - was already in the lobby and the guide kept asking about the second guest. He did turn up at 0345 at which time we departed still early. Our guide Nuc was best described as over bearing - he had a very loud voice when delivering the information to the pair of us who were the only guests and we were very pleased when he said he would remain quiet until our first scheduled stop at 0600. This was the case and we were allowed off the bus for a toilet break but were advised not to shop as breakfast would be provided at the Floating Market, some time away. after much tooing and froing, I insisted that I would buy us each a Bahn Mi for breakfast given that at this point nothing had been offered in the way of sustenance by Nuc. Back on the bus and down to Can Tho for a visit to the land market - both Chris and I had already seen many markets in Vietnam as we were participating in a group cycling tour from north to south - I did point out after a little time that this was indeed my third trip to Vietnam and felt that the delivery of the information was rather like addressing school children. I needed another toilet break so I told Nuc that was where I was headed and did so. When I came out of the toilet, Nuc was paying however I told him I already had so there was no need. This led to a bitter confrontation which carried on for some time with me suggesting that perhaps I should get a cab back to Saigon - he made both of us very uncomfortable. Whilst eventually he moved on, we felt that this was going to be a very long and uncomfortable day so we concocted an excuse to get back early to shorten the very long day. There were some highlights on the trip but the guide made it all very difficult. We had paid very good money for the trip and were very disappointed with this outcome.
