A friend and I booked this tour from reading the reviews and were not disappointed! Our guide, Khoa, was amazing. Excellent English and great knowledge and sense of humour. The floating markets were amazing. All food and drink were included. We really felt that Khoa went the extra mile at every step. Only been in Vietnam for 3 days but this has already made our trip unforgettable. Highly recommend Hieu Tours to everyone that comes to Can tho! Wish we had known how good they were sooner as would have booked more tours with them! Thanks Khoa for a brilliant day! Shout out to the driver who played great tunes all the way! Reviewed by Sophia
