Day cruise tours in Can Tho Send a Request »


  • The highlight of Day cruises in Can Tho

    Cruises from a few hours to full-day tours to Can Tho’s surrounding countryside and into the middle of the river life of the Mekong delta, on board the Mystic sampans.

    The Mystic sampans are large sampans able to run the medium-range cruise through the maze of canals and tributaries of the Mekong, and can navigate by night in comfort. They are built so as to allow you a level access to the action at the floating market, and offer the perfect platform to carry a party of cyclists out to the green.

    The Mystic sampans accommodate 24 passengers, seated at the carré or at their tables with service at the table, or with a buffet for larger groups. They can host breakfasts as well as lunches and dinners.

    Our services range from breakfast to the floating market to a discovery of a Khmer sanctuary with lunch on board, to sunset cruises, grand days out to the green area, or even dinner on board.
