Вой и в реку дважды. ..
Так понравился тур, что поехали с Roadstour Vietnam повторно, так как у друзей пропадали билетики. Больше всего понравился ресторанчик Halal…и въетнамская кухня.

A ‘must see’ part of Vietnam
Review of: Full Day Trip to Mekong Delta at My Tho Ben Tre from Ho Chi Minh City

The itinerary for this day trip was well thought out and we had such a variety of memorable experiences, as well as our guide Minh being very helpful. We saw a lovely pagoda, saw bees and tasted honey infused tea, watched coconut candy being made, held a python, tasted snake wine, paddled a sampon canoe along a winding canal, walked along some lovely bush tracks and saw typical homes and lush greenery everywhere. It really is a beautiful dense and fertile area.

Could not have bettered

Contacted Ryan a while before due to go in order to book 2 trips. The puppet show & dinner and the day trip on the Mekong Delta. Couldn’t book on the website. Ryan confirmed the booking and said don,t worry about payment till you arrive. Both guides Mr. Minh for the evening and Mr. Thanh for the day trip arrive on time. They both had a good command of english. Both trips were excellent. My wife has restricted mobility and both looked after her and customized the trips to suit. I cannot recommend this company highly enough

My husband have wounded in the leg before we going, my tourgiude name is Loc , he very kindly helping my husband on the tour. We feeling comfortable and safety with this tour. Thanks you so much Roadstour Vietnam and My guide Mr.Loc

Kudos to Roadstour Vietnam

Splendid Tour & Great Tour Guide Mr Loc!
I contacted Mr Ryan of Roadstour Vietnam by email and I booked a 2 full day tour to Chu Chi Tunnel & Mekong Delta for 9 adults.
We arrived at the airport on 22nd Oct’14 and our driver Mr Vinh was waiting there for us 20 minutes earlier. We had a 16 seater van. He transferred us back to our Dragon Palace Hotel which was a great place to stay too.
Our tour guide Mr Loc was there to meet us on 23rd Oct’14 morning. He was also prompt & punctual. He is pleasant, very friendly indeed and speaks English fairly good. He had a French accent thoh..lol.
Our 1st day tour was to to Cao Dai Temple & Chu Chi Tunnel. We were taken to the Cao Dai Temple which draws upon ethical precepts from Confucianism and theories of karma and rebirth from Buddhism, with some influence from Catholicism. Cao Dai’s saints include such diverse figures as the Buddha, Confucius, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, Pericles, Julius Caesar, Joan of Arc, Victor Hugo, and Sun Yat-sen. These are honored at Cao Dai temples. Just after the temple, we headed for our halal lunch (since we had a Muslim friend in our group) at Restaurant Samsuddin. Lunch was simply superb!
Next was Chu Chi Tunnel. Mr Loc was quite prepared with his diagrams & photos to simplify the explanation. The trip to CuChi tunnel is a must for all travellers to HCM. It gives us an idea on how the vietcong guerillas worked their way fighting with the Americans. It gets more exciting when you begin to crawl through the tunnels used by the Vietcong. We even had our hands on to fire the M-16 or AK-47 for a fee (about 350,000 dong (RM56.00) for a packet of 10 rounds).
Next day, we were ready for our Mekong Delta. Mr Loc kept explaining about Mekong Delta & their cultures and things we should know about our trip. The journey took about 2hrs including a stop (about 15 mins at the Rest Stop area).
At Mekong Delta jetty, we took a boat with just the 9 of us to Venus Island and Unicon Island respectively, enjoying the activities such as climbing onto coconut trees, fruit orchard, tasting honey, sampan ride and horse ride etc. The hand-rowing sampan journey through the canal was simply exciting.

I have traveled often to other Asian countries and join their tours and I can say Roadstour Vietnam is highly recommended if you happen to visit HCM.

I thanked Ryan for arranging the excellent tour guide and drivers to bring us around, especially Mr Loc for his warm hospitality during our stay in HCM.
Kudos to their services

P/s. To Mr Loc( We will remember your “noodle” story) LOL

See you again.

Warmest Regards

Hassle-free visit

This made for a worry-free visit. Reliable. Van & driver wait till past midnight! Good communications,Efficient, On-time. Ryan & guide Vu was at the appointed time to meet and greet and run through the itinerary. Reasonable rates! Staff were clean, efficient, polite and wonderful company, always glad to help, ready with an offer of cold water. Guide Vu speaks good English, is well mannered and well-versed about history, places of interest, has the skill to maneuver our group away from the crowd and unnecessary noise, is thankfully aware of guests’ comfort and safety, a good photographer. Van is clean. Ride is coolly comfortable. Meals and snacks are spaced perfectly, one won’t go hungry in any of the packages. Food selection is good. Truly private. Very satisfying service. Highly recommended. Tip: check on lifevests for size and fit as soon as you get to the boat. River can be wild.

Day trip to Mekong Delta and HCM dinner cruise
Pre-arrival, our communication with Ryan from the company was reliable and efficient. He answered our emails in a timely fashion, and professionally.

Their prices are very favourable compared to others, and on the whole offered good value.

We booked 2 tours with them:

1. evening cyclo tour and dinner cruise. Rickshaws peddled by elderly man take you on a 45 minute ride around downtown, by sunset. Quite relaxing. But remember you don’t get out anywhere along the way. It is nonstop. So you can’t explore anywhere along the route. Might have been nice if we could get out a couple of times and look at some of the sights, even if for just a moment.

2. Dinner cruise around the river. On an older style junk boat. Glad we did, as the other bigger ones blared out disco music, which would not be relaxing. On ours, we got traditional music. The food was fairly standard Vietnam cuisine. Spring rolls, salad, honey chicken etc. Ok. Not a fault of the cruise, but a point to note: there is not a lot to see on this cruise. You go past a couple of sky scrapers, and thereafter you shortly get to cargo boats. This is not a trip along the Seine in Paris. It is quite industrial and uninspiring.

In summary, Roadstour Vietnam did a good job, the guides were keen, and pleasant.
3. Day trip to Mekong Delta. Roads are crowded and busy. It took us 2 and a half hours to get there. It is very tourist orientated and almost seems to exist solely to provide tourists a day out. The so called villages exist only to provide a tourist stop. We did: honey tasting, fruit tasting, listened to a little music, took a sampan ride, short horse trap ride and had lunch. Our guide Nhi was helpful and efficient.
Would I recommend going to Mekong Delta? Since you are here, then yes. But only just a yes. It’s not authentic, and not the best experience. Not by a long shot. But that’s what’s here, and you can only do what is here.

Mekong Delta

My sisters and I took a day trip to Mekong Delta while we were visiting Vietnam. Nhi Nguyen was our private tour guide and she made this trip and experience so enjoyable for us. Her knowledge of the life in Mekong Delta and her relationship with people in the community gave us the best understanding of the life in the delta. It was very special for us as we didn’t see other tourists having the same experience. I would recommend Nhi as a guide during your trip in Ho Chi Minh.

Excellent trip to Mekong Delta and Cu Chi tunnel in a single day

Really we had an excellent trip to the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi tunnel in a single day with the help of Roadstour Vietnam…they managed the whole thing so flawlessly that we will cherish the memories of that trip forever! Mr.Ryan,the boss of the Roadstour Vietnam was always prompt in replying mail which will definitely make one confident and feel assured.He offered the trip at a very reasonable rate.He provided a brand new luxury car Then to speak about our Tour guide Ms Vy. She is an excellent,cheerful, knowledgeable lady,she enlightened us all through our trip.The driver was also a very lovely person.
We first went to Cu Chi tunnel which is famous for the war.Its a unforgettable experience!!! Vy guided us thoroughly there.Then we went to the Mekong delta trip.
Before the trip,she took us for a grand and elaborate lunch at Mekong Rest Stop.Then we started the trip in a private speed boat.It is simply wonderful experience.We crossed the river to watch different activities in the Mekong delta villages.It included horse cart riding,folk dance show of the local people,Coconut candy making,sampan ride etc etc We enjoyed all the activities.The trip ended at about 5 pm.Then we returned to Ho Chi Minh city.
I strongly recommend this trip with Roadstour Vietnam….

Wonderful tour with Vy

We just finished a wonderful day with a wonderful tour guide named Vy. She was so friendly and knowledgeable and her English was excellent. We toured the Mekong delta, road in a horse drawn carriage, and tried about a million different delicious things to eat including fruit, tea, coconut candy, and lots of other Vietnamese dishes. We also got to climb a coconut tree and have fresh coconut juice and coconut. Vy also acted as our personal photographer so we have lots of great pictures to remember our wonderful day! She even gave us shopping and eating advice to use for the rest of our stay in the capital. Fantastic day, highly recommended!

Perfect day! Very pleased
We had a very nice day. Private driver and tour guide picked us up on time. Comfy smaller van took us to the tunnels. Highly recommend private tour as it was much more enjoyable at a slightly faster pace than what I could tell with larger tours. Went for lunch (AWESOME LUNCH, lots of food, authentic, tasty, great restaurant, 5 star). Then went to the final leg of our tour across the river on the boats.
Tour guide spoke great English. Told us when to tip when not to. Very knowledgable on history and area.
Highly recommend this tour!!!!!!! The owner met with us after to say hi and ensure we had a good time. All very nice and worth every penny!!!!!

Mekong Delta tour My Tho – Ben Tre
Our group consisted of 5 adults and 5 children age 15 and below. The van ride from Saigon to My Tho was comfortable because of A/C and Wifi. Our tour guide Viet told us about history and culture of Vietnam during the ride to MyTho and while traveling to the many islands we visited in the Mekong River. We enjoyed the several short boat rides from island to island. On each island we were able to take short walks to see various activities: how honey and coconut candy were made, have lunch, have a fresh coconut drink, and a short ride in a horse drawn cart. I was happy to see the children as well as the adults were entertained by the entire tour and our tour guide Viet. It was obvious to us that Viet enjoyed meeting new people and talking about his country.
