We took 3-day private Mekong delta trip. The sites were quite remote, so lots of driving, but with beautiful landscapes on the way. The transportation was comfortable. Our tour guide was very polite and helpful. Accommodation 3-4* hotels, pretty new with spacious and clean rooms. The sightseeing - nothing spectacular, but fully met our expectations. It was interesting to see, how people live and work, what do they plant and grow etc. The floating houses, fish farms, rice paper production, walking in the forest or around villages was nice, although tons of plastic trash everywhere put a pinch of salt into the whole experience. Lots of boat trips in the Mekong river and surrounding canals. Everything well organized, well deserved 5.

My wife and I took the 2 day 1 night bike trip to the Mekong delta. The trip consisted of about 20 miles per day of easy bike riding along paved bike trails abutting narrow waterways. They are all well off the beaten track. The roads are flat and easy to negotiate with only an occasional motorbike to compete with. The views consist mostly of the streams on one side and the farms on the other. Every mile or so reveals small villages with school houses , small housestays, and eating establishments. We were always greeted with smiles and hellos along the way. Aside from the bike ride, there are several boat trips in areas where the river widens. These are all on small boats large enough to accommodate 4 or so passengers. The boating excursions were to the floating market, a tiny boat restaurant where we were served fresh fruit by 2 delightful women, and an island in the river where we were served a banquet for 4 despite there only being 2 of us. We also made stops along the way at a Cambodian and Vietnamese Pagoda, both of which were amazing. Our lodging at the Bamboo Eco Village was a highlight. Perhaps the nicest place we have ever stayed in the 6 continents we have visited. Exquisite grounds , room, and food. Cannot recommend this homestay enough.

We did a two day trip that included cycling both days and boat trips on the second. Our guides and drivers were great. Super informative, incredibly nice, always offering cold water. This trip is great if you completely want to put the planning and logistics in someone else's hands. Your luggage goes in a chase vehicle so you're biking light. The floating market in fantastic, and being able to see the country side, biking through small towns is really beautiful. You tour a few local business, which we liked, and while there was an opportunity to buy their stuff at the end, there was no pushiness, which was really welcome. Ultimately, this is about the guides. Ours were great. Informative, kind, constantly pointing out the bounty of fruits that grow in the region. They accomodated our group of 7 amazing, considering we had a pretty wide range of fitness and comfort on bikes. Highly recommended!

My family of 3 (2 adults, 1 11 year old) enjoyed cycling through the Mekong Delta with Cong as our guide. You bicycle through different farming communities live amongst their crops—rice, dragon fruit, durian, jackfruit, bananas—and how they go to market with boat excursions on the Mekong River. One night is a rural homestay in a nice historic home and the other is urban in a hotel in Can Tho. The best part is cycling past all the homes and sharing a smile, a wave and a hello with the kids...who eagerly greet you too 😀 Be prepared for almost 40 degree heat and rougher, narrower (but pretty much flat) paths than you might be used to cycling at home. There’s always enough water and cool towels at each break 🥵 Bring your own snacks if you need more consistent fuel during the day. Cong was a very accommodating guide who worked to our needs as a private group 👍🏼

My friend and I really really enjoyed our 4 day, 3 night cycle tour of the Mekong Delta with Sinhbalo and would recommend it unreservedly to anyone wanting to see this part of the world by bike. First, our guide, Loc. He did a great job. He was always on time, gave us great information at each place we visited, took us to really good restaurants and ordered a wonderful range of dishes that we hadn't tried before. He was super helpful with my friend who had raging tonsillitis for the whole trip. He did everything he could to make the trip comfortable and meet both our needs, given that my friend needed to rest while I felt fine and could do the usual itinerary. On that note, I also want to acknowledge how great the company was regarding last minute changes to our group (a third friend was supposed to join us but had also been taken down by some super flu bug) and changing our accommodation to a hotel instead of a homestay so we could be closer to a hospital on the last night. The tour lived up to the description given to us regarding getting off the beaten path. I think we saw other tourists cycling only once in four days and that was only when we had to use a larger road to get to the next smaller path. The routes we took had a different feel each time and we felt like we got to see a nice range of places in the delta. Cycling on little paths between the houses and having the local children call out hello to us as we went past was my favorite part. The tour included a nice mix of cycling, activities such as boat tours of a mangrove forest, fish farms and a floating market, and downtime to relax. Pretty much everything is included in the price apart from a few drinks. It was really enjoyable to not think about organising anything or paying for anything for those days. All in all, I highly recommend both our guide, Loc, and the company as a whole. You won't regret taking one of their tours.
