Cong picked us up right on time from the Beautiful Saigon 3 Hotel and whisked us off to our 2 day Mekong biking trip. Cong was exceptional as a guide - we asked about rice growing as we passed fields, and he stopped and showed us the individual rice plants and explained how they are harvested. His English was good and he continually stopped to show us fruits - we picked the ramboutan off the trees - it became our new favorite fruit. The biking was easy and so experiential because of the children yelling "hello" all through the two days ! We loved the home stay because we got to cook and enjoy sleeping under a mosquito net - but we only heard one mosquito - I thought we would be inundated with them and not have enough deet ! Not so. This was one of the best parts of our Southeast Asia excursion !

Thanks for your feed back with good impression of the tour. The picture of your biking through the delta canals was great. Our guide Cong would like to say "Cam On rat nhieu" - Thank you very much to you. And we look forwards to longer biking in the north Vietnam with you.
Kind regards,
Sinh.

We read all the reviews before we went and decided to go with Sinbalo tours with Ut as our guide and Vin as our driver. We had a great time travelling with our 16 year old son, met lots of locals saw lots of interesting things along the way. Ut is very knowlegeable and thoughtful adjusted ride lengths and stops to suit our needs and was very attentive while encouraging us to keep going.

Trek bikes were great, scenery fantastic - an opportunity to see people and places you would only see on a bike. Homestaty was a wonderful opportunity to see how people live. It is trip we will always remember with fondness. Dont be daunted if you are not very fit or a regular rider i did it so you can. A sore bottom is worth it in the end for the wonderful experience. Thank you Ut

Dear Jackie W,
I am glad to know you had a good time with Ut in the mekong delta cycling tour.
Yeah, the trek bike is very good and we even put a gel seat on it. As the original seat of the TREK bike may give you a sore bottom at the end of the day. But it is worth for adventure cycling in mekong, right?
Thanks so much,
Sinh.

Cycling in the Mekong delta, we did it and the guiding by Sinhbalo was excellent. They took care of everything: lodging, meals, cycling material,…. And it all was state of the art. We asked for a home stay, and had the opportunity to cook together with the landlady. Cycling brings you closer to the local people, and our guide Ngan is an expert in bringing people together. This 3 day tour was an exceptional experience. All cycling lovers should bike in the Mekong delta and do not hesitate, ask for Sinhbalo

Dear Jan,
Thanks for your comment on cycling mekong delta trip with Ngan.
It's great to hear you enjoy the cooking at local homestay in CanTho. Agree with you, my yummy food was the vegetarian spring rolls there and the lady always try her best to help you making a good looking spring roll.
Looking for more adventure cycling Bangkok to Saigon in the future? Let us know.
Best regards,
Sinh.

We really enjoyed the 3 day cycling tour. The trip was a combination of cycling and boat rides on the mekong. We saw some lovely countryside and got to explore see people going about their daily life in small villages, lots of children calling out to us as we cycled past. The accommodation and food provided were excellent, although the meals were in tourist restaurants with set menus (good vietnamese food and all tastes catered for). The guide tailored the amount of cycling to our group ability and the distances were considerably more than in the advertised itinerary - we thoroughly enjoyed the experience but the cycling was more of a challenge for some of our group than others and some of us were extremly sore/tired by the end of it.

Dear Sir,
Thanks for you comments on our mekong delta cycling tours.
Great that you enjoyed the trip, eventhough some people in your group feel more challenge, may be the heat of mekong. Thanks.
Best regards,
Sinh.

We just completed our 4 day (3 night) trip with Sinhbalo and I loved every minute. The bikes were great (saddles quite hard - pain in the butt from day 1 so if you can bring a softer extra saddle cover go for it). Our 10 yr old daughter could do it to. Our guide was knowledgeable and pleasant - and even took us to his own homein the village where his family received us with fruits, tea and rice paper!

Most trails are good, esp day 2 morning and the last day. Sometimes there are stretches on bigger roads, the Mekong delta is a populated area and I guess that can not be avoided.We took loads of little boats, saw 4,567 dogs, chickens, shouted at least 2,350 times 'helllooooo' to the children and enjoyed fantastic fruits and local food.

We went for the basic option and our hotels were really good (1 basic on the lake, the others really fancy!)

All in all a trip worth doing, especially with children (from 10 yrs old) I think!

Cheers
