Why a Private tour – What is the difference between Join-in-group tour and Private tour ?
Join-in-group tour : You join a tour with some other tourists. You share the bus, boat, tour guide, so the price is cheaper. You have to be on time and follow the fixed itinerary and timetable.
Private tour : The bus, boat and tour guide is reserved for your group only. The timetable and itinerary can be flexible. (For private overnight trips to Halong bay, when booking please confirm if you want to take a private boat or group sharing boat).

From there, we’ll take you to a bee farm where you have a chance to taste a cup of authentic honey tea, then walk around quiet villages and watch the life of rural people in the Mekong Delta.
We are divided into smaller groups and all board small row boats. During this trip, you’ll witness all kind of interesting transportation modes that local people use to move around, while enjoying the fresh air along the canals and the beautiful water coconut tree scenery.
Next, we return to the large motor boat and cruise along a canal which has orchards on both sides. We cruise to a village where coconut candy is produced, from coconut trees of the Mekong Delta. You will see that the people can make dozens of useful products out of coconut trees, as it is part of village life here.

We continue on our riverine route for 5-7 minutes, and then on foot for about 5 minutes to reach a noodle and a rice paper factory. Your next stop is a rice processing factory where you’ll learn the many steps that transform “rice with a brown cover” to the delicious and beautiful white rice grain that we consume daily.

The Cao Dai Temple is a colourful place, its exterior is decorated with multi-colored dragons of all shapes and sizes competing for space with a number of “swastikas”. Above the main entrance is the all-seeing holy eye, the symbol of the Cao Dai sect. The interior is just as engaging as statues of Jesus Christ, Buddha and the Hindu god, Brahma, stand side by side.

At about 1.00pm, after lunch, will leave Tay Ninh and travel to Cu Chi. This is where guerilla warfare optimized and exemplified the Vietnamese resolve. You’ll learn the clever design of the tunnels and the strategic use of trap doors. Even with B-52 bombers dropping 30-ton loads of explosive, turning the jungle into a pockmarked moonscape, 30 thousand American troops failed to conquered the area. You’ll have a chance to crawl around a portion of the 121 km long, multiple-layered tunnel, specially widened to allow tourists to enter. You’ll learn how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground many days at a time, also their great technique to conceal smoke from their cooking. There’re a lot more to enjoy, even a chance to fire real AK bullets. Return to your hotel around at 5:00pm. Dinner tonight will be at your account.
Overnight in your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.

    We were travelling with kids so opted for a private vehicle and guide for our 6 day South Vietnam tour as it allowed for stops to placate the children. Our guide and driver were both very good at their jobs and also as travelling companions. We cruised on the water, explored a floating market, and visited a crocodile farm near Chau Doc. The guide explained everything to us as well as entertaining the children, then after a night back in Ho Chi Minh City we went to see Cao Dai Temple then the underground tunnel system at Cu Chi. The family loved the tour and we know we made the right decision to travel privately.
