    Amazing trip, AMAAAZING TOURGUIDE
    The trip was amaaaaaazing! Packed with may impressions and activities on the first day already. Our tourguide Eddie welcomed us gently and was very attentive throughout the hole trip. We were able to experience local transportation systems, food and music, and could „take part“ in local businesses. Eddie was very patient with us being fascinated, but kept being organised and made it seem like every activity has been waiting just for us. The program was packed with insights of different kind and Eddie seemed to know an answer to EVERY ONE of our endless questions concerning all kinds of topics (politics,economics,architecture,history etc…)
    In our case he even helped us by organising a home stay and a separate transport back and made sure we were okay even days after the tour ended.
    All in all: an amazing trip, made even better by the amazing Eddie !

    I recommend the tour- the first day was nice trips to different fruit farms and boat rides to islands and small channels in the river. Can tho was a good night stop and the hotel was very nice. The boats at the floating market were super interesting to see.
