Overview

A smooth 1.5 hour bus ride driving past scenic rice fields along the QL1 (National Highway 1) which leads visitors through the beautiful rural district of Trung Luong. We guarantee that you’ll fully enjoy the beauty of the Mekong River with our tour.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The picturesque little province of Ben Tre was always one ferry beyond the tourist traffic of My Tho and consequently developed at a more languid pace, although new bridges connecting Ben Tre with My Tho more visitors into the area. The town’s sleepy waterfront, lined with ageing villas, is easy to explore on foot, as is the rustic settlement across the bridge to the south of the centre. This is also a good place to arrange boat trips in the area, particularly for those wanting to escape the tour-bus bustle. Plus, the riverside promenade and the narrow lanes on both sides of the river are ideal for two-wheeled exploration.

Great tour, no tourist traps.

We had a wonderful day out with Pioneer Travel. Very knowledgeable and informative about the area with a great sense of humor about some of the things we seen on the trip.If you want to experience the real Mekong delta away from the crowded tourist areas then this trip is a must do.The ride on the back of the scooter through the countryside and rice fields was amazing.The lunch we had at the foot of the delta was great freshly caught clams and shrimp brought straight to your plate.

Worthy of money and must do in HCMC

This tour is probably the cheapest price that I could find online and turns out it is worthy of money with great experience. I enjoy the Sampan boat ride and also the motorboat ride where u can have a better view of the Mekong delta river. Lunch was quite good given the tour price already include lunch cost. Must go with Pioneer travel!

It was worth my money mekong delta 1 day tour

Mr Cong had a sense of humor. His english is alright and he made sure we didnt get lost. The first stop is a bit of a tourist trap with the representative marketing the coconut products. The products were interesting. Things i liked: - transport was prompt - The sampan ride was a pleasant experience. - honey tasting - vinh trang temple - seeing the coconut candy production and sampling Thank you!

In the early morning, we were picked up at our hotel, it takes one half past hour to reach there, i felt fresh and peacefull atmosphere here, we were taken by motorboat four and five islands, after having lunch at one of the islands and entertained by 2 girls singing the folk with 2 men playing musical instrument, then we tried some cut local fruits at the orchard and then we gone on rowing boat to a home of coconut named ben tre. End of the trip i dropped at our hotel. Happy to be joined the funny and new friends.
