Private Mekong Delta tour in the coconut land of Ben Tre

32 reviews

  • 8 hours in total

  • Lunch, transport included

  • Pick up and drop off at your hotel

What To Expect

Besides exploring the highlights of Ben Tre, you will engage in various fun activities and interact with real local people to understand how life is at the Mekong Delta.
Upon arrival, you will be transferred from the air-conditioned van to a wooden boat and enjoy a ride on the Mekong River.

Your first stop is a coconut dehusking workshop. Here you can learn how coconuts are collected and prepared to be sent to factories that produce coconut-derived products such as coconut milk, coconut oil, etc.

Then, we will take rides on local transports into the village. You can enjoy the fresh wind and the pristine scenery of the river. Everything here is still untouched by tourism.

This journey will allow you to ride on tuk-tuks, paddle boats, and other local types of transport.

How about taking a rest in the middle of a tropical garden and taste some fresh fruits before heading further into the village? Coconut water, grapefruit, apple banana, papaya, and many other tropical fruits are waiting for you. Just listen to the sounds of nature and slowly sip in the peaceful atmosphere and lush green scenery.

Next, our local guide will take you to a local workshop where they make brooms from coconut sticks. You will have the chance to meet their hard-working and easy-going female workers.

Enjoy a homemade lunch with local specialties including grilled fish, spring rolls, fried rice, and shrimp. If you have any special diet requests - vegan, vegetarian, Halal food, just inform us in advance so that we can prepare the food for you.

After a warm and satisfying lunch, you may find yourself resting on a hammock, surrounded by coconut trees. If you still have energy, you could learn how to catch fish using a fish nest or learn how to climb up a coconut tree.

My husband, myself and my two boys aged 12 and 14 had the most amazing day with Vy today. The tour is definitely off the beaten track and far away from tourists which is what we wanted. We got to taste some amazing fruit like dragon fruit, meet some local villagers and cycle between the plantations. We had a delicious lunch which was prepared by... Read more

Vi is a fantastic and is very caring. She took care of me and my family and showed us around the Mekong delta. Being a Mother herself she interacted very well with our kids especially our four year old. The only reason we did not give her a five star review was 1) we could not give 4.5 stars which is what we felt 2) we think that she took us to... Read more

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?

Our cancellation and refund policy is simple: if for any reason the tour cannot take place, you will get a full refund. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure our travelers 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.
