About
Mekong is the life blood of Vietnam.  The mighty river is one of the longest in the world. Along with its intricate network of snaking rivers, streams and canals, it is like the veins of the human body. They carry people and goods. They feed the fertile lands that make it possible for Vietnam to grow the immense amounts of agricultural produce necessary to feed millions and sustain life in Vietnam. No visit to Vietnam would be complete without experiencing Mekong and this special tour is unique because you get to see the countryside by van, the mighty river and islands by boat, and cycle deeper into the jungle where travel by vehicle would be very challenging or impossible.  This tour takes you off the beaten path to meet locals and learn about their “water hyacinth” lifestyle.

What to expect
  • ITINERARY: 8:00 AM, VN Bike Tour guide will pick you up at your place for the two-hour drive to Mekong Delta.  We will travel in a modern, comfortable, air-conditioned van. On the way, you will take in the scenic countryside and farmlands of Southern Vietnam. Our first stop is the “Coconut Kingdom of Vietnam”.  This can only be Ben Tre province, famous for its many inter-connecting rivers, streams and canals, where rich fisheries and agriculture, especially rice, make it the undisputed “Rice basket of Vietnam”. Upon arrival, we will transfer to bikes. From here, our Mekong adventure truly begins! We must cycle as it is virtually impossible to get to our destination by car along the winding pathways and jungle, over the safe, but challenging, terrain. Along our 7 – 10 km cycling route, we are going to pass through peaceful village streets, cross bridges connecting isolated small canals, and stop at tropical fruit gardens.  We will visit the homes of friendly locals so you can get an idea of life in Mekong. Here you will also enjoy the experience of sampling local cuisine by having a typical “homegrown, homemade” meal while you quench your thirst by drinking juice right out of the coconut. Then, we will are off to a garden to help harvest and taste the exotic fruits of Mekong Delta. From here we head to the wharf to board a traditional sampan. Seeing this classic Asian-shaped boat, seen so often in pictures and movies, you will know that you are truly in the heart of exotic Asia. Your journey will take you down the Tien River where you will pass the famous, four tiny islands representing Southeast Asia’s mythical animals: the Dragon, Kirin, Tortoise and Phoenix. Our next stop is Kirin Island where you can sample freshly baked coconut candy and honey which tastes of the island’s rich and diverse flora. After a walk through the orchard gardens, we will break briefly in the shade to taste rich, seasonal tropical fruits and listen to folk music, played and performed by local artists. Then have your camera and video ready for one of the most fun parts of the tour.  The row boat ride, with its multitude of boats going up and down the mangrove-lined canal is a sight to behold. It is akin to rush-hour traffic in Ho Chi Minh mixed with the calming effect of beautiful shade, caressing breezes and sunlight filtered through jungle leaves.  Then it is a short walk to your final adventure - a horse-drawn carriage ride through the village, just like the locals did in the 19th century. We arrive back in Ho Chi Minh City at around 6 pm. Note: Please let us know if you have any food allergies or special requests.

Visiting the Mekong Delta was fascinating
Jul 2019
We reserved the tour from the UK a couple of months before going to Vietnam. We were pleasantly surprised when we met our guide as he spoke fluent English and had a great sense of humour. Everywhere he took us was followed up with a narrative that was interesting and cultural. During the day we visited many and various places of interest, speaking with local people in the markets, their homes and along the way. Cycling through the exotic rich fruit trees in a kind of rural suburbia where the only way to travel was cycle, motor bike or on foot, we agreed it was the highlight of our tour. Stepping on board a floating Mekong Delta fish farm was amazing.

In summary when I return to Vietnam for another holiday with my friends we will book the same tour again. It comes highly recommended from me. Ken Cocks, Essex

Amazing day
Thanks to Sam, Lana and the driver for an action-packed and fun day in the Mekong Delta. On our bike tour, which included beautiful quiet palm-lined paths, we went to a local market, visited a pagoda and had tea with a monk, and even cycled to a private house for a delicious lunch. Then we went to Unicorn Island by boat and among other things had honey tea, tropical fruit, and had a trip down a canal in a rowing boat. Sam and Lana were helpful and super-informative, and we very much enjoyed spending the day with them. A very special day.

Best trip of my travels with Long
Jul 2019 • Friends
We had an awesome trip in Vietnam with Long. He was a great tour guide, It was so exciting to learn so much about the countryside. What We enjoyed the most was the bike riding thought the peaceful village. We felt so refreshing and relaxing during the getaway from Saigon. The tour guide was very professional, funny, and passionate, he always joked. He provided lot of information during the tour anf also about Vietnam.
I highly reccommend the tour to any one who comes to Vietnam. It is a must-do tour in Vietnam.
