Testimonials
"Pickup service was good. Services on board was great, the village sightseeing was god, and guide spoke good English. If I could wish for two things; taking drink orders at the tables on top deck during nighttime and a stop or two at the floating market, not just driving by. Information and payment was good. Would recommend to friends. Thank you for a good trip, and experience. "

The Mekong Delta (Vietnamese: Sông Cửu Long “Nine Dragon’s River Delta”) is located in southwestern Vietnam; here the Mekong River empties into the sea through a huge network of bigger channels and smaller arroyos, a perfect settlement for highly productive fishing farms. Its rich and fertile soils are famed for being the country’s main orchard and source of paddy too, so the whole region is mostly home for farmers and fishermen living in remote and quiet countryside.
