Explore the Mekong Delta on a speedboat tour from Ho Chi Minh City, following the Saigon River into a network of canals. Stop to visit villages, a Cao Dai temple, and more, including a chef-prepared lunch at a pagoda. Traveling by speedboat means you can visit the Mekong Delta directly from Ho Chi Minh City, trading a long bus trip for more time on the water.
  • Mekong Delta speedboat and rowboat tour from Ho Chi Minh City
  • Includes a light breakfast and chef-prepared lunch featuring local cuisine
  • Learn about life and culture in the Mekong Delta
  • Group size limited to 14 for a more personal experience
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel for transfer to the central pier, then enjoy a light breakfast as your speedboat sets out along the Saigon River. Learn about the history and ecology of the Mekong Delta while navigating a network of canals and channels, and step off the boat at Tuong Van Pagoda for a walking tour. Return to the speedboat and continue downriver to a colorful market, then slip beneath a tropical canopy as you reach smaller and smaller tributaries. Board a rowboat for a canal trip to a Mekong Delta village, with the option to taste fresh coconut, Mekong whiskey, and locally made wine. A traditional lunch will be served at a nearby pagoda before the tour continues to a Cao Dai temple and a Buddhist orphanage, the final stops of the day. Enjoy the afternoon light on the water during the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City, where a guide will transfer you to your hotel.

We had a wonderful experience seeing the Delta by River, much better than a long bus ride. The trip as described here by Les Rives is exactly how our day went. Henry is an excellent guide and made our day incredibly memorable!

We did the Mekong by speedboat trip as we didn’t want to spend hours travelling in a bus and we were so glad we did. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the dock where we boarded our boat. Henry was our guide and there were 3 other crew members. All did a fabulous job.
