The whole experience was more than I could have hoped for. It surpassed my expectations and far more than than I am able to capture in mere words and images! I couldn’t recommend more going on the Mekong delta tour with Vi, our knowledgable and adorable local insider Mekong delta tour with Vi
“The tour was amazing”
The information he provided about the country was relevant. The tour was amazing, Jack took us to amazing local vietnamese places far away from the big tour buses. We had an amazing experience while getting to know this amazing country. Had a bike ride along the Mekong where we could see the locals lifestyle, crossed the rived climbing monkey bridges, had a boat tour, went fishing and ate local vegetarian food. We had a blast.
“Highlight of our Vietnam trip”
Wow, we had the most amazing day in the Mekong Delta we Vi. She put together a complete tailor made and off the beaten track adventure for us. We saw no other tourist the whole day as we meandered up the delta by boat, then paddled up a small creek in a wooden boat, visited a local school whilst the children were having a break from their lessons and then cycled around the paths and lanes between the coconut groves. The most impressive was meeting real local people who were genuinely pleased to see us.
We ate beautiful fresh fruit with Uncle Tam in his tranquil garden, were invited into the home of a lady as we ambled past her house, visited a small coconut factory in a clearing on the riverside. We got to chat the the amazing women working in a small brush making factory who could talk and weave brooms at equally incredible speeds. We ate lunch in the riverside home of the delightful Mai’s family and after cycling were challenged to climb a coconut tree - but failed due a lack of basic skills. It was a day we will both remember for years to come.
“We all had a lovely day”
We all had a lovely day with Vi exploring a side of the Mekong Delta that we had not yet seen. Exploring an authentic local farmers market, canoeing through the small waterways between the palms, enjoying tasty fresh fruit in a lovely orchard and cooking & enjoying some super fresh food (fresh prawns, crabs and Vietnamese vegetables) was enjoyed by all. Learning to climb the coconut tree brought a laugh to all! Thanks very much Vi for showing us the Mekong and sharing with usa better understanding of Vietnam today :) wish you all the best!!
“Vi is the best guide we ever had”
We spent 2 days in Mekong Delta with Vi as our guide. We loved the tour she had custom made for us, traveling with 2 younger children Vi had a great feeling of our tempo and everything was just perfect. We visited plenty of small local fabrics and stayed in a wonderful local resort just close to the morning market. Vi is the best guide we ever had and we all loved her. Thank you so much, hope to see you in Copenhagen one day. Best wishes
“Our trip with Jack was more than amazing”
Our trip with Jack was more than amazing. Best trip in Vietnam. We enjoyed the time with the locals, no tourists around. We're glad to join a food market without any tourist, the nature by ourselves with Jack, had a boat trip on a river and a bike tour. At the end we had homemade food, a lot of food, with a local family. We loved every single moment. Thanks Jack for this opportunity. We will come back.

Still have questions
Is Mekong Delta worth a visit?
Well, the answer really depends on your personal preference. We can say that Mekong Delta is a one-of-a-kind experience. It is a culture special and interesting even to Vietnamese people. For example, the floating market here is for wholesale, so it is not as touristy and commercial as the markets you see in Thailand.
