All About this Tour

This tour takes in two of Southeast Asia’s most diverse and fascinating countries. Commencing in Saigon we head into Vietnam's rice bowl and the Mekong Delta. This fascinating area is flat and lush and is quite unlike anywhere else in Vietnam. Although it is a densely populated area, we manage to take quiet backroads and see some of the serene beauty of this area as we pass lotus flower ponds surrounded by ancient trees, riding along and over canals and roads lined with coconut trees and bamboo.

Reviews

My daughter and I had a very good trip, and a great introduction to Vietnam and Cambodia. The biking was great in Vietnam and very good in Cambodia. Our guides were very good. I appreciated your assistance and timely replies in our planning stages. The trip was very organized, the restaurants, food, hotels, and bikes were all very good. I hope to do another trip with you in the future.

There is no better way to get a real feel for the culture than by riding the country and spending time in areas with people you'd otherwise never see. I would recommend the experience to everyone!
