The tour was pretty amazing, we were quite sceptical of the price at first as there were many other tours a lot cheaper, however this is a completely private tour of both the floating market (at peak time) and Ben Tre coconut forests along with the obvious row boat along the mekong plantations with hat included. It is worth it as there are many other interesting things to see in between that are not mentioned on itinerary...with lots tastings/samples. The endless amounts of fruit and shot of snake venom spirit was a particular highlight.
Our quide Phong was fantastic and very enthusiastic about is job and no question went unanswered, even with an hours delay d/t traffic he still made sure we saw everything.....ask for him would be my advise.
All in all the tour was fun. The Cai Rang floating market part was great and is highly recommended even if it is a long drive to get there. The Ben Tre part was much more touristy and fun but not outstanding. The cycling was not nearly the 15 km advertised must have been more like 2-3 km, there was no coconut tree climbing, no pottery shop etc. Also the ride in the Sampan was very short must have been 10 minutes. The guides English could have been better, although he was very nice. Altogether still recommended especially because of the Cai Rang part which very few other tours offer.
