    Off the beaten track - a peek into rural Vietnam Very nice tour, you will get to see life in the Mekong Delta as it is, including small family owned businesses, bike through beautiful rice fields, and you will get to see a Cao Dai church, which is unique to Vietnam. Mr. Lockie was also as great a guide as a gifted Karaoke singer. Hard to get a better quality price deal in Saigon!

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! http://dreamreplacementwindows.com

    Hello there! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics? Many thanks! https://www.fcvets.com/veterinary-surgeons/

    Great – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs as well as related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task. http://winghartburgers.com

    Pip and I did this tour with Phu ( Rich) yesterday. Phu was considerate, kind and knowledgable. We loved the tour to the orchid garden, the temple, the duck farm and cycling alongside the rice fields was amazing. You really get a sense of the rural Vietnam. The lunch was delicious and filling and very healthy. Well done Phu.

    Did the tour with my two young boys (6&10) and Cung did a great job of looking after us. As well as adult bikes, they also had kids bikes which was great fun for the youngest. Most riding was away from main roads on flat concrete paths travelling through rice paddy’s and farm areas, all flat and easy to do for even the youngest. Had a great time. Chung was super flexible - even stopped and bought some fishing poles after he heard my eldest was a keen angler.....bagged 7 fish at the pond. Lunch was relish too. Steve

    Best trip ever This is one of our best activities we went on our holiday. Loved biking around the village with absolutely no other tourists

    The tour was definitely off the beaten track and barely a tourist in site. It was lovely to bike through rice fields and lotus farms. Beware that there is some biking on the busy streets involved in case you are not comfortable. We were generally pleased with the tour and Betty was a lovely guide! She even took us to the market to try fruits that we wanted which was not part of the tour. Thanks Betty! However, I did find the description a little misleading in that there was only 6 km of biking and it involved a lot of stops so if you were hoping to do a lot more biking this is not the tour for you. It’s important to note that we also did not visit the actual delta, just the region and the meal was not with a local family.

    I'm very lucky that I got in a really small group (of 2, lol). The tour is in/near the town of Tan Tru, with a lovely ride though the rice paddles & villages. Loads of nice photo spots here! Our guide John has a great sense of humour. He went out of his way to get fruits for us at the local market to try out all kinds of tropical fruits. Loved the tour!

    Outstanding tour, really off the beaten track. Ken was our guide and he is really the perfect combination between kindness and competence. He "made" the tour, explaining things and helping us anyway

    Brilliant Day! My friends and I were excited for a trip outside of the city and to find out more about the culture and this was the perfect trip. We got to cycle through the village, eat and listen to the traditional food and music and visit other places along the way. Van was the best tour guide with great knowledge and very friendly, she really made the trip.

    Amazing tour I would recommend to anyone Such an amazing tour. Really non touristic at all, we have only seen locals and NOT one tourist around. The guide was also lovely and very kind we did appreciate every single thing we have seen or visited.
