About Us

A Higher Standard… a Memorable Authentic Experience… A Truly Local Company....

The Mekong Delta, known to many as Vietnam’s “Heartland,” has always been an incredible draw to tourists as it celebrates the modest beginnings of the country. Beyond the picturesque natural beauty of the area, its warm and friendly local people paint a true portrait of Happiness, Hard work and Community that is lacking in many parts of the world today.

Through our top local guides, our well-built, well maintained and superior boat fleet, we inspect areas untouched by commercial tourism. We are cognizant of the negative changes that mass tourism can create and it’s this that drives us to steer away from it. We are a truly local company and re-invest in the areas that we explore.


Our concept differs from others as we understand that vacation time is both precious and finite. We understand that our valued guests and discerning travelers have invested their time, energy and resources to making each part of their trip memorable. We take this very seriously and it’s our firm belief that at the conclusion of your Mekong Delta program with us, you will realize a high sense of satisfaction from our tour, but more importantly, memories that will last a lifetime. We also believe that you will find our off-the-beaten-path programs a fair price for the experience and we certainly hope that you will tell others about your time with us.


Trip Planning: 

Plan your Mekong Delta Experience with Mango Cruises! 

The Mekong Delta used to be considered as a tour from Saigon, a one day get-away, an escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Today, it is widely recognized as the highlight of Southern Vietnam and worthy of multiple nights. The combination of endless waterways, friendly local people and lush green vegetation create an atmosphere unmatched anywhere, and make for a very memorable experience that people of all ages will enjoy.


Many are unaware that the region also serves as a great connector to onward travel plans. Phnom Penh Cambodia is a four hour speedboat ferry transfer from Chau Doc. Phu Quoc Island is easily reached through daily flights from Can Tho or even the speedboat ferries in Rach Gia or Ha Tien. So, whether you wish to return to Saigon after your time in the 'Delta or travel onwards, let us help you plan an itinerary that fits your needs and exceeds your expectations!


Our Impact / Your Impact / Why us?:

In the 21st century, it has become more necessary for companies to become more socially conscious. Some organizations do this because they feel it is their duty, while many others do so to be viewed in a better light – a socio-greenwashing, so to speak.

Our impact in the Mekong Delta is real and it is substantial. While we employ over 35 local people for various duties, beginning with administration, service, guiding, boat operating, housekeeping, kitchen and management. It’s a number that doesn’t mean a whole lot without the knowledge that all of our staff are full-time, and their salaries are significantly higher than similar roles in the region.

Our team is our single greatest asset, they display enormous passion for their home area, and are excited to share and showcase it to our valued guests. Because our touring options are authentic and unique, not touristy and fabricated, our team shares in our pride and vision, and our turnover ratio is very low.


As a potential future guest of Mango Cruises, we do want you to know that every booking we receive, does impact our local community and is assisting our staff and their families to garner greater wealth. A position that will unequivocally lead to their ability to better secure basic needs and overall stability. 


Why Us?

·       Our Tour is your Tour, our Sampans are your Sampan, our Home is your Home, our Team is your Team. With all Mango Cruises programs, you're assured a tour on actual Mango Cruises owned products. This is something very important to us and our valued guests as we schedule our own maintenance, ensure all of our staff are trained and certified and all of our Management team is well aware of all portions of our tour and Sampans.

Clear concise correspondence: Our sales team provides detailed itineraries with subsequent pricing on each program we send over email. All of our programs will have at least one picture of the actual boat you will be touring on and we will be happy to send more upon request. Do not make a booking based on writing or itinerary alone. All of our boats sit at least 2.5' above water, and have washroom on-board, ample life-vests, first-aid kit and fire extinguishers. Most other operators are well aware that their fleet is sub-standard and as such attempt to cover this up throughout the booking process. They do not offer any of the above amenities. 



Our management team has extensive experience in Vietnam’s tourism industry and has been offering tours to discerning international travellers for many years. We have now applied our inside knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to Mango Cruises. 

Tran Thuy Nhung


Nhung was born in Ha Long Bay, but has roots throughout Vietnam.  Her mother is from Ha Long Bay, in the north of Vietnam and her father is from the Mekong Delta. 

In 1976, Nhung and family rode the reunification train (famous for connecting the North and South of Vietnam after 20 years of divide) to the south of Vietnam to settle in her father’s hometown, Ben Tre, in the Mekong delta.  The family faced many challenges in the post-war. Her father settled into a modest career working in a fish factory that allowed the parents to give Nhung and siblings the opportunity at an education.

Nhung took full advantage of the opportunity and finished high school in Ben Tre in 1994.  Still motivated and committed to learning, she attended English classes that following year.  In 1995, her parents were able to save enough money to send her to University of Education in Saigon, from where she graduated in 1999.  

Nhung soon discovered that she had a passion for travel and domestic tourism and enrolled in the Saigon tourism college, where studied for the next 3 years.  Nhung enjoyed working as a tour guide for over 5 years serving as one of the preferred English-speaking tour guides in Saigon.  During this time she loved the travel and writing about her life experiences. She left tourism for a few short years but has eagerly returned to share her love for Vietnam with the world.

Nhung has travelled to many countries in Asia, Europe and North America to learn about different culture and especially she is fascinated in interacting with people.
In 2009 She opened an international travel company based in Ho Chi Minh City called ComeandgoVietnam that specializes on tailor made tours throughout South East Asia, focusing on Vietnam , Laos and Cambodia as her most favorite countries in the region. ComeandgoVietnam has introduced and guided many travellers worldwide to South Est Asia and got great feedback

In 2010 Nhung has realized that her beloved hometown of Ben tre has huge potiential as the up-and-coming tourist hot-spot in Vietnam.  She has decided to take advantage by introducing the world to Mango Cruises. Her vision is to celebrate the area’s rich culture and unique lifestyle to fascinate tourists from all over.  Her experience in the area, connections in tourism and amazing Mango Cruise programs will surely bring the best of the Mekong Delta to the world.

Jay Johnson

 Sales Manager 

Jay was originally born in Canada and worked for many years in the newspaper industry in several different departments during his tenure. His first adventure to Asia was to Vietnam and it did not disappoint!

Growing up in Canada made for a stark contrast when first setting foot in Vietnam. Jay grew very fond of the much milder weather and ability to enjoy the outdoors, (without multiple layers!) year round. The friendly local people gave him the drive in supporting the development of Mango Cruises, and the simple premise - showcasing an area of true natural beauty to travellers worldwide, responsibly.

While Vietnam in many of its big cities is chaotic, bustling and full of energy, he has always preferred the Mekong Delta for its simplicity and genuinely friendly people. A flashback to his early childhood, and following his grandmother downtown through a small Canadian city, where each person you would meet would have a smile and some kind words or a story to share. He also enjoys cycling and the Mekong Delta boasts some of the best in the world, with its combination of paths near River ways, lush tropical scenery, fruit orchards and sleepy villages.

His love for the Mekong Delta and his wife Nhung, continue to inspire him towards new and exciting tour options, while continuing to improve our services. Jay has a deep commitment to improving the overall standards of Vietnam tourism, and its adherence to proper safety regulations.
As a discerning seasoned traveller, he has helped to add subtle touches, towards making Mango Cruises guests feel comfortable and special. He takes great pride in handling direct inquiries for the company and has great passion, knowledge and actual experience in the products and services we provide.

Not satisfied with only understanding that in his own "backyard," Jay tours S.E. Asia several times yearly looking for new and exciting touring options for his valued guests.
