Our tour was leaded by Mr. Quang. It was a crazy, exciting adventure. Mr. Quang is an excellent, fun leader full of laughter. Our favorite part of the trip was the scooter ride that lasted for about 4 hours. Each of us got our very...More

Questions & Answers
Hello James R, I have read your review about Water Buffalo Tours Mekong Tour and just want to say that it is a shame that you feel let down by aspects of the tour. My wife and I have done this tour 3 times...first time was just us and the next 2 trips were with different groups of friends from Australia. We have always enjoyed this tour, as we have all the other tours we have undertaken with Khoi's Company. On every trip to Can Tho we also stayed at the same Hotel as you guys. Yes, it may not be the same standard of accommodation you might expect in the USA or Australia but we never felt the Hotel in Can Tho was a "fleapit". We have known Khoi since he started Water Buffalo Tours and he and his staff have always ensured our trips to Vietnam were an enjoyable and friendly experience and he has always strived to meet our needs and provide accommodation in places we have visited that are as good as any in those places. I also note that you found the lack of Western food in Can Tho was disappointing...not sure what places you ate at but we certainly found some quality Western menus in Can Tho, although it has always been our preference to eat Vietnamese food...that is one of the top reasons we have been to Vietnam so many times....and the same applies to other counties we have visited, such as Thailand, Bali and Cambodia and Singapore. Khoi runs a small business (he has refused offers to amalgamate with larger Tour companies) because he values a more personal experience for his clients and my wife and I, our friends and other people we have introduced to his Tour Company have nothing but praise for Khoi and his great team. I am sad that some people may read you review and be dissuaded by your experience (and I acknowledge your right to express your views) but I would urge those readers to give Water Buffalo Tours a try...we have dealt with them for around ten years and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our many visits to Vietnam under their care and guidance. Regards Ian Cargill, Darwin Australia

It rained part of the day while we did the Mekong delta day tour and we may have been lucky but it didn't change things, we just wore a poncho when we needed it
