Immersi nella giungla del Mekong
Gita sul Mekong alla scoperta delle attività della popolazione locale. Siamo stati affascinati dagli innumerevoli lavori svolti dalla gente che vive sulle sponde del fiume, dalla fabbricazione di mattoni, materassi, alla preparazione di miele, dolci e alcolici locali.
Parte della gita si è svolta in barca e parte a piedi o su un tuctuc locale.
La nostra guida (Field) più che ben informata ci ha spiegato innumerevoli nozioni sullo stile di vita locale.
Se vi piace provare alimenti diversi, avrete la possibilità di assaggiarne di diversi tipi, tutti molto buoni a mio avviso.
Consiglio vivamente a chi trascorre del tempo in Vietnam di spendere un giorno per visitare questo luogo assai pittoresco e spero che abbiate la fortuna di trovare una guida brava e disponibile come è successo a noi con Field.

Awesome trip with a wondrful guide
Review of: Full Day Cai Be Floating Market Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

Me and my cousin went for a full day Cai Be floating marketing tour with Thanh and it was really a great experience. It was probably one of the best days of my life as we have had plenty of fun (driving a boat, riding a bicycle for nearly 7 kms, etc.,). Thanh took care of us very well the entire time and I have built a friendship with him. If you are looking for an adventure trip in Vietnam, don’t miss the Cai Be floating marketing tour with Thanh.

Nice trip with Thanh and Roadstour VN!
I had a wonderful tour to Cu Chi Tunnels and Cai Be floating market with my cousin. Thanh was a great tour guide, very informative and had a good sense of humour. We found it excited in each places we visited. He is the best tour guides of all we have visited. I would recommend other people to request Roadstour to send Thanh as your Guide.

Well organized with excellent guide
Review of: Full Day Cai Be Floating Market Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

We enjoyed a very nice day trip to the Mekong Delta with the excellent guide Thanh. The information on the website was very accurate. Thanh knows a lot about Vietnamese history and the Mekong countryside. If you want to get away from Ho Chi Minh City and can only spend one day in the Mekong Delta, this is the trip to take, even when it is a touristy – but not a too touristy experience

A nice way to experience the Mekong Delta life in one day
Review of: Full Day Cai Be Floating Market Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

I didn’t know what to expect from this trip, but I must admit that I enjoyed every moment of it. Me and my wife were guided by Ming (I hope the spelling is correct), who really did a great job and made our trip special. First of all, be aware that it will take approximately two hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City. Once there you will hop on a boat and give a quick peek at the Cai Be floating market, which is sadly disappearing because vendors are moving their shop on the land. So, if a vibrating floating markets is what you want experience you might look at other tours, such as the Cai Rang floating market tour. Then you will move to many other islands where you will experience the manufacturing of some local products of the area, taste some fruits, hold a python, and have a lunch along the Mekong river. The views you will get are incredible and in my opinion the tour was totally worth its value.

Hemos hecho 2 tours privados a Cuchi y a CaiBai en el Delta.
Merece la pena llegar muy temprano a Cuchi, lo vimos solos. Salimos a las 7 de hotel.
La guía era eficiente y simpática y en CaiBai tenía su propio recorrido donde no nos cruzamos con otros turistas.
No tengo claro si merece la pena el sobrecoste por hacerlo privado.

ood communication with the team before the trip, the driver was on time and reliable throughout the day but didnt speak any English, which was not a big Problem. The best price I could find! Good deal!

We planned a very early trip to the Floating market which wasnt worth it as there was not much to see when we arrived at 7 am. I expected something different. The rest of the tour was nice and well organized though, but unfortunatly he took us to a really crowded Tourist Restaurant which we didnt want at all and we werent able to tell him due to the language barrier. I understand when this is part of a guided Group tour, but we hired a private driver to avoid these kind of crowded places.

We did the floating market full day tour. This involved taking a 2 hr ride to a boat and viewing the boats selling fruit etc. on the river. We didn’t see any selling as I believe that occurs early in the morning, but it was still an amazing experience. Next we saw a market where they make various foods. The items were for sale, but the sales pressure was not too much from the vendors as I feared it may be. We saw a singing performance which unfortunately felt a little rushed (also unfortunately the table next to us talked the entire time of the performance which was very rude).

We took a small row boat around a little canal, and then finally had a lunch. Lastly we took a couple bikes and spent an hour biking all over the tiny island in the delta. This may have been the highlight of the trip. This trip is a must do, and while it’s definitely a very touristy experience (which we try to avoid), it was not too much for us to handle

Fantastic Day!
My husband and I did the Mekong Delta day tour. What a great day! Nhi was amazing, she was very friendly and bubbly and really looked after us! It was very easy from start to end, I booked with Ryan who was very prompt and helpful, and pickup was right on time from our hotel. I would highly recommend this tour if you only have a short time in Ho Chi Minh.
