The Experience

Need to escape the concrete jungle of Saigon? Look no further! Leave behind the skyscrapers and noise and head out to the Mekong Delta. This maze of rivers with its surrounding rice paddies is exactly what you need. On this adventure, you’ll get to cruise around on a riverboat, visit traditional villages that specialize in producing local goods, meet unique river people and not to mention, eat delicious food! This will be your opportunity to really get off the beaten track and experience what local lifestyle is to the Vietnamese.


Detailed itinerary

8:00 AM - 2:30 PM

Our guides will pick you up at your accommodation and together you will make your way westward to the Mekong Delta. Catch a breath of fresh air as you drive away from the silhouette of Saigon, and enjoy the views of the picturesque countryside on the way. Soon you will be on back roads and red dirt trails - it’s not an adventure if you only drive on paved roads!

Discover everything the Mekong Delta has to offer - gorgeous rice paddies, riverside markets, and a unique insight into the lifestyle. Your journey includes visits to local cottage industries such as incense making and rice wine production. Take a leisurely ride on a riverboat and cruise all the way to a shrimp farm. Meeting the local river people and seeing how they still depend on the delta to make a living, is all part of this authentic experience.

The adventure comes to end with lunch at a stilted restaurant where you can actually catch your main ingredient - fish - while you enjoy a cold coconut in the shade. After a break and some hammock time, it’s time to return to the hustle and bustle of the city. But if you don’t want your adventure to stop there and want to take it to the next level, try our 2 days, 1-night Wildlife Mekong adventure!


Important

If you are an experienced rider, you can drive your own Vespa. We will give you a short driving test at the beginning of the tour to make sure you feel confident on Vietnamese streets. We do, however, recommend that you let our experienced guides take the wheel.

Best afternoon! 3 of us, Very nervous as our ages ranged from 77, 67 and 57. But our guides were patient and careful. Comfortable to sit on the back if the Vesta. They guide you on how to get on and off. At first I was very nervous, because of the crazy traffic, but Ben, my guide soon had me settled in and enjoying the ride. We stopped several times for experiences, and chances for photos. We stopped in 3 villages, one they made bed mats, one that made rice wine and finally where they produce rice noodles. Here we got to make our own and then Mrs Anh cooked us up the best rice noodle and pork pho.....Devine. Each stop was a private home and I felt privileged to be part of this day.


A fun filled morning wizzing through the streets of Saigon. It was my first time on a bike and although a little nervous to begin with it was clear to see that our drivers, Tam and Nhat Chip, were very experienced and excellent at what they do. Our guide Ful Ly was knowledgable and friendly and led the tour well, sharing his inside info of Saigon as we went. Even though this is usually a group tour due to the timing we were lucky enough to have a personal tour making the experience all the more special. Thank you Vepsa Aventures!


Wow, what a great way to experience Saigon - brilliant drivers, great guide and a cracking evening - would thoroughly recommend it - when we come back to enchanting Vietnam we will definitely do it again
