I took my family for a 1 day tour from Saigon to the Mekong Delta and we were guided wonderfully by Mr. Hau. His humourous and light hearted nature made for a very pleasant time, combined with impeccable timing and planning. We managed to do so many different activities (riding a boat amongst the lush green mangroves, eating coconut candy, holding a boa constrictor, drinking snake/coconut wine, tasting chilli chocolate, relaxing on a hammock under the shade, and more) in one day. I highly recommend him! Thanks, Hau, for a great time!
