“By far, this private tour has been the most memorable I’ve been on (Mekong Delta 1 day tour). I was so pleased with this that I bothered to write my first Tripadvisor review. Our guide Trang was extremely enthusiastic and kind, going to great lengths to ensure we were comfortable and having fun. Although technically we paid for everything in our tour package up front, it had a very personal touch to it, as she’d buy us fruits, drinks and snacks”. Reviewed by Paddy
