If I could rate all the questions 11 out of 10 I would. But I suppose I had better make it 10. We cannot have spent a better birthday but here on the Delta and with the fantastic people of Le Cochinchine cruise. The boat was fantastic and with only 3 other people the cruise was great. The food was exquisite and extremely flavoursome. We also learnt a lot about vietnamese cuisine from our tour guide, Loi. He was very knowledgeable and his command of English was great. What more can I say I would thoroughly recommend the cruise and would definitely go again if we came back to Vietnam.
