Les Rives Full Day Mekong Delta Tour
One of the highlights of our journey to Vietnam a couple of seasons ago, was taking a full day guided tour with Les Rives Tours from Ho Chi Minh City. My son and I enjoyed a wonderful boat tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels.
Recently, my daughter and her boyfriend traveled to Vietnam and enjoyed a full day tour as well, taking the Les Rives Mekong Delta Tour.
They had a fantastic day with an exceptional tour guide they said made the trip even that more exciting!
Below, is a glimpse of what to expect on this tour and some of their pictures they sent to me after taking the tour.
About The Mekong Delta In Vietnam
The Mekong Delta, which is also referred to as The Nine Dragon River Delta due to the fact the Delta is created by nine adjoining rivers.
The delta comprises a vast triangular plain of approximately 55,000 square kilometers, approximately 16,000 square kilometers of the inner delta are located in Cambodia.
The remaining 39,000 square kilometers make up the southern tip of Vietnam.
In Vietnam the Mekong Delta is intensively developed for agriculture. In fact, the Delta provides the country with about a third of its annual food crop.
This huge land formation consists of paddy fields and hills.
It’s numerous rivers, streams and canals are buzzing with activity including; boats, homes, floating markets and much more.
The Mekong Delta is truly unique and must not be missed when visiting this beautiful country!
Les Rives Speedboat Ride & Guided Tour
As mentioned, this is a full all inclusive unique tour which includes a scenic speedboat ride into the Mekong Delta. Your tour includes hotel pick up and drop off to the pier where your speedboat awaits.
Sit back and relax as you pass by rice paddy farms, fruit orchards and daily life along the banks of the river. As you take in the scenery on board, a light breakfast is served with Vietnamese iced coffee to start your day!
Also included in this tour is a peaceful rowboat ride along the small canals of the Delta, where you’ll get an opportunity to visit a traditional Vietnamese homestead.
Enjoy fresh coconut and perhaps some Mekong Delta Whisky!
As well, a short stop at a Buddhist Pagoda where your guide will inform you on the history of Buddhism and importance to the people living on the Delta.
This tour also includes a stop at a traditional river marketplace. Experience daily life in the Mekong Delta with a visit to the local produce market.
If you’re not afraid of very large snakes, then have your picture taken with one wrapped around you! 🙁
