The activity is quite complete and very comfortable because it is a very small group. Personally, I have to indicate that I have a phobia of snakes and I mentioned it to the guide from the moment he said that we would see some python, so he always tried to take me away and he was worried that he was fine.

Great but exhausting whole trip to Mekong delta included unicorn island. Really enjoyable overall lunch was beautiful it was just really really hot. This isn’t suitable for people even slight mobility issues.

We took 3-day tours. Both guide and driver were on time and the trip was well organized. Our guide was Ahn who has a great personality and is actally from the Mekong. Thanks to all involved we had an action packed couple of days. Very enjoyable.

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.
