An overall great tour, great organization! We booked the evening before and the communication with the organizer was great! We had a tour guide with very good language skills. He loves his job and his tour! The trip has a bit of a coffee trip with many small shops such as cocoa, beekeeping and coconut products. But you are not pressured to buy something, so despite its recommended!

We had a good trip and saw a lot. At times it was a bit much touristy, but it provided a good insight into life around the river. We had 3 children with 7,10,11 years which was no problem. They could participate in it all. The trip is very hot, remember water, sunscreen and mosquito repellent.

The tour was great to see various aspects of this part of the country and as it was a rather small group also not a hassle or uncomfortable in any way. There was a lot to see with interesting information from the guide and interactions with locals on one stop or the other. Best part was definitely the small boat tour through the narrow canals and the honey tea on one of the small islands.

Can Tho is legendary in the annals of Vietnam's history and we wanted a local tour guide who is knowledgeable and MET did not disappoint! During the booking process many questions were asked about our reasons for wanting to see CT and the Mekong Delta area (there were many), and the tour met all of our expectations before ending with food and drink and local hospitality.

Did a fantastic half day boat tour of the Mekong, which the kids and adults loved. Out tour guide spoke English was informative and friendly. Dinh the owner personally met with us and introduced his guide, who made sure we saw everyday life and working on the Mekong at Ben Tre. kids loved the tuk tuk ride to the lunch at the home stay. Interesting to see that at 80 some people are still hard at work on the coconut farm! The smaller canals down the Mekong were fascinating to see, with the fishing traps, and some of the homes hidden away. This trip was great value and would highly recommend it.
