5/5
"Really recommend this kayak Tour! We had a great Time! The guide is very nice and made a good job. Kayaks are in a good conditon , went swimming in the Mekong on a Little Island (very clean and refreshing 🙂 ) and saw a lot of dolphins! Kayaking in the currency for beginners maybe a bit tough, but no Problem at all! It‘s worth it to do it with Dolphin Kayakingadventure instead with the boat."

During the dry season, we can stop on a sandy island beach stop for a swim. The dolphin trip offers a great opportunity that few travelers have had, to not only see the dolphins, but also to paddle through a picturesque and rarely visited section of the Mekong River.
