What To Expect

Stop at a serene village, enjoy a short walk to experience local life and hop on your xe-lôi (a kind of motorized rickshaw) and stop at a local restaurant for a lunch with local food.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

There are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum of 8 people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What does my payment cover?

Your payment for this trip covers private transportation, a fluent, English-speaking guide, lunch, entrance fees, bottled water, fruit tasting, and all activities. Personal expenses such as extra food, drink, and tips are not included.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than 8 people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.

Do you offer the Mekong Delta trip for multiple days?

Yes, we do. Please contact us for a more detailed arrangement at team@inspitrip.com.
