Sehr verspätet abgeholt. Die Fahrt dorthin sehr holperig, schwimmender Markt sahen wir etwa 1 bis 2 Boote. Wir sahen noch wie sie Reiswaffeln und Reiswein machen, das war spannend. Das Mittagessen war sehr gut.

Tour con actividades muy variadss
El mercado flotante da poco de sí por las circunstancias actuales del mismo, nada que ver con la organización del tour. Pero es curioso subir a una de las barcas que venden fruta. Además de eso, estás muy entretenido durante toda la mañana con el kayac, la bici, aprendiendo cómo se hacen los caramelos de coco y los productos de arroz, la clase de cocina, etc. Creo que obviaría la parte de la actuación musical o la incluiría de otro modo (quizás en el propio bote de transporte?) porque está montado de un modo que te sientes súper turista.

This trip exceeded all expectations!
The guide was knowledgeable with a warm, bubbly personality. It was a great day out with lots of activities planned and executed very, very well.

Not a real floating market, not much to see on he island
The floating market was a disappointment. Just a couple of boats. Looked nothing like what you see on pictures everywhere. The kayak and bike tours around the island were pretty boring as well as there wasn't much interesting to see. The cooking class was ok, although we weren't really involved. Visiting the coconut candy factory was the most interesting part of the tour.

Don't expect to much.
The tour guide BIN was fantastic. But you don't see much of the delta. Once arrive at the Mekong you do not see more than what's like 1 mile around. The real floating market is gone when you arrive as it usually ends like 8 to 9 in the morning. What's left behind from it on your arrival consist of about 15 to 20 boats. To me it appeared that these are just there for tourists. The bicycle tour lasts only for 20 minutes as well as the kayak tour does. On the kayak you are only allowed to paddle 300 meters away from where you start. Overall it isn't bad, for me it was just to quick. Once you arrive you are rushed through everything and don't have the time to let the impressions settle. The cooking class isn't realy cooking. We were just rolling some leaves with minced meat. And you also get dragged into places where you can spend more money on useless things. We paid $49 per person. To me the tour was worth like $25.

Nice day with different activities
We loved the day with all the different activities. It was lovely to see the different crafts, taste the different foods and sweets and learn a lot of things from our guide. We had a different idea from a floating market, more colorful with different fruits and vegetables,not the wholesale market we visited. But it was still nice. We liked to kayak through the canals and bike between the houses. One thing: when we booked we could only book for adults 11-70 year old. We did not know how to book for our 8 year old. As it turned out we had to pay the same price as for an adult. That seemed strange to us (eats less, no bike rent etc). We suggest you put in the posibility to book for children online as well with a price discount (which is the case for most tours)
