Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

This full day tour journeys beyond the emerging skylines and modern amenities of Saigon, and introduces Vietnam's traditional life: farmers working in lush rice fields, children herding water buffaloes and fishermen casting their nets. Departing the pier, drive to the delta port of My Tho where the exploration on the Mekong River begins. One of the great rivers of the world, the Mekong begins in the Tibetan Plateau and tumbles 2,795 miles to the Mekong Delta and the South China Sea. In Vietnam, the river divides itself into dozens of tributaries and becomes the Cuu Long or Nine Dragons that fan out into a rich delta, covered with green rice paddies and orchards of coconuts, mangos, pineapples and bananas. Upon arrival in the provincial town of My Tho, visit the 150-year-old Vinh Trang Pagoda, with its interesting combination of Vietnamese Khmer and French architecture. Boarding a motorized boat, begin your river cruise, passing vast fruit orchards, stilt houses, fish and shrimp farms, small canals and all manner of boats. Pause at Thoi Son Island, with its tile-roofed houses and acres of fruit trees bearing plums, mangoes, and lychee-like longans. Following lunch at a local restaurant, re-board your boat and continue the scenic cruise to another village and visit a family-run enterprise that makes coconut candy. Next, embark in smaller sampans for a scenic ride through the narrow, tree-lined canals.Stopping at a bee farm, enjoy the opportunity to sample the fragrant honey tea and other local delicacies. Cruising back to My Tho, re-board your coach for the return drive to the ship.
