The trip was a great taster for the Mekong. It was exactly as described in the itinerary and totally lived up to our expectations.

Our tour guide Than was very friendly and knowledgeable . My husband enjoyed the experience of being able to fire an AK-47. I did feel as though we were rushed through the whole experience. We were the only people on this tour, perhaps if we had other people with us things may have progressed at a slower pace.

Once again our guide, Linda, was truly a professional and very knowledgeable guide. Linda is a very caring person and truly deserves a nice raise. Would highly recommend LINDA for this tour & Mekong Experience tour as well.

This was my second visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels and my wife's first visit - we both really loved this trip, Truong was our guide and he really had lots of knowledge to share with the group. Visiting a local farming family was an eye opening experience. Make sure that you take plenty of water with you, as you will have a busy time. Would highly recommend this trip.

We had a great time. During our holiday we joined several tour companies and I can say Urban adventure was one of the best groups we went on. The tour had a little too much of shopping at local community points. but I guess this makes the economy move round. Our guide Linda, was excellent. She went out of her way to make sure everybody was getting a great day out.

We went on a Mekong Delta tour on December 30, and Linda was our guide. She kept us informed throughout the tour about everything we were seeing, interspersed with interesting factoids about the economy and history of the region. We were a small-ish group - just nine of us - and we spent about an hour getting to a rest stop where I drank some very strong and delicious Vietnamese coffee. We also visited a bee farm, which really freaked out our oldest son, a coconut candy business, and went on a boat on the Mekong Delta. We had a yummy lunch that I as the only non-Asian in my family seemed to like. Then we went on a sampan which was the highlight of the trip for us, as it was so tranquil. Linda was an awesome guide and we will definitely look for her again on another Urban Adventures tour.
