As you travel, your guide will fill you in on the area’s culture and history. Stop on an island to taste tropical fruit right off the tree, and another to tour a coconut candy factory, where you’ll get a taste and and see how it’s made. Learn about delta life through stops at local villages and informative talks from your guide. You’ll take a xe loi, or motorized cart, to a local bee farm, as well as a rowboat to gain access to hard-to-reach areas deeper in the delta.

Quite a touristic tour. Nice to see but only spend 10 minutes on a typical small boat in the river. Johnny was the best part of the tour, his english is good and tells a lot about the local people.
