    Strongly recommend it with Thomas

    I had this tour with Thomas and he was engaging and very knowledgeable. We saw a Khmer styled pagoda, war museum, Can Tho prison, wonderful Mekong River, took a ferry for the hidden village and watched the sunset and many local small boats crossing the river. The guide gave us interesting information about Can Tho river culture and history. It was great to have a local’s perspective. Thomas also gave us a list of food recommendations after the tour! Had so much fun with him and highly recommend this tour.
