We did this day tour with a privatetour.com company. The treck down the Mekong was a very short boat ride to visit a touristic version of Mekong village life. Our tour guide was so much fun, his English was excellent with so much useful information about the Vietnamese life. The boat journey was so wild, but a very worthwhile look at the lifestyle of this massive river delta. The temple on the return trip an excellent way to round off a fun day. The tour was amazing. Highly recommend the tour and privatetour.com company.
