Full-Day Mekong Delta Tour
The Mekong Delta is the final destination of the mighty Mekong River which winds its way from Tibet, through China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. An incredibly fertile region, its prime industry is food production, producing approximately half of Vietnam’s total agricultural output. Life for villages in the area revolves around the rivers and canals that make up the delta, people are more likely to transport by river than road.

Once we all jump aboard our own private vehicle and depart for the mighty Mekong River! This journey will take around three hours and will give you a chance to learn all about the course of the river and how it arrives in Vietnam from its origins in the snowy mountains of Tibet. You’ll also get to gaze at the spectacular surrounding scenery as we drive through the wonderfully fertile region. Take the chance to glimpse at the local way of life as we pass through one of the county’s agricultural hotspots.
Discover Cai Be & Local Vietnamese Culture
Once we arrive at Cai Be, we’ll board our private sampan (a traditional, motorized boat) to begin our unforgettable cruise along the Mekong River. First, we’ll experience a small traditional floating market. This is an unmissable chance to get an insight into trading away from tourist focused markets of the city. Expect to be dazzled by an array of colours, smells and sounds. Keep your camera to hand to snap some beautiful shots!
Rowing Sampan & Guided Bike Ride
After the floating market, we’ll change to the rowing boats and go into the smaller, secluded canals of the delta. Here we can get up close and be a part of the daily life of local people and farmers. Next up, we get back on dry land while we visit Tan Phong island. After a quick stop-off at a tasty fruit orchard, we will experience the enchanting music of South-West Vietnam as we enjoy a local performance. We’ll also take a guided bicycle tour of this marvellous island. Along the way, we will visit local families and learn how they use the land to craft everything from delicate rice paper to the sturdy roofs of their homes. The families will treat us to Mekong delicacies for lunch which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice.
Explore More Of The Delta By Sampan
After the special Mekong lunch, we transfer to a smaller rowing boat allowing us to get deeper into the smaller canals of the Delta to get back to our big boat. The motor boat moves slowly along the river banks with floating fish farms then returns to My Tho for the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.

I now refer my friends, family and colleagues, as well as book all of my tours, accommodation and flights with Maika because I feel very lucky to have finally found an organisation in Asia that gives me the confidence to do so.
The tour was very well organized, and the guide spoke very good English. We got to see and experience so many things: Besides visiting a pagoda and Buddha statue, we also went on a boat ride (with a stop to enjoy a coconut drink) and visited local businesses producing rice paper, conical hats and mats. We had fresh fruit and tea for a snack and Pho soup for lunch which was delicious! We had such a good day and would highly recommend this tour!
We went on this tour, two families of four, with children aged 9-12 years old. We were really happy with it and highly recommend. Lin was our guide and she was fantastic, would really do a trip with her again. It was nice to do this privately and easy to adjust with Lin if needed. Maika helped us book the accommodation in Can Tho which we really appreciated. Would highly recommend and for sure do again.
You did a great job looking after all of our family of 7. The kids enjoyed all the tours and especially the Mekong cruise …as did we……because the kids were so happy we got to enjoy some time to ourselves too. I would recommend Maika Tours if your thinking of visiting Vietnam!
