The Start Of The Adventure
At the meeting point, you’ll be introduced to your local tour guide who will brief you on all the great stops we will check out. Our first stop will be at Quán Nước Mía 93, where you will try some freshly prepared spring rolls and green papaya salad paired with some tasty sugar cane juice. This stop prepares very typical south Vietnamese food so expect lots of vibrant vegetables and refreshing flavours. The perfect choices to kick off our tour!
Taste A Vietnamese Classic
Next up we will try the famous Vietnamese baguette – the Bánh Mì. Expect freshly baked bread filled with succulent meat or freshly caught fish topped with some fresh zesty local salad. You can pair this delicious Vietnamese staple with either a traditional coffee or fruit juice. The choice is yours!
Our third stop will be at the very popular Ốc Đào restaurant. Here you’ll get to sample some of the country’s best seafood offerings. This will include locally sourced grilled shrimp and scallops as well as snails in butter accompanied by sauteed morning glory, a real southern delicacy! En route to our final stop, we will pass a great place to try out some local crab soup so be sure to ask your guide if you would like to try it, just make sure you leave enough room for dessert!
Next up, it’s dessert! We’ll hit the famous Trop B dessert shop to complete our culinary adventure. You will have a huge choice of sweet treats to taste, including coconut ice cream with mulberry-flavoured sticky rice and refreshing bowls of mixed tropical fruits. Whatever you choose you won’t be disappointed. Still hungry? No problem! This is a great spot to try Bot Chien, a crispy rice cake. Simply ask your guide to order a tasty portion of these Vietnamese favourites.
Please speak to your guide about arranging taxis back to your hotel, other recommendations of places to visit or to be walked back to Bui Vien to continue the fun. Our helpful guide will be happy to help!
See What Our Guests are Saying
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!
