Full day bike tour from Saigon, Vietnam
Cycle tour the Mekong Delta south of Saigon with a knowledgeable local guide and experience rich local traditions, picturesque scenery and the delicious foods & flavours unique to southern Vietnam. The flat riverside terrain and rural pathways make it an ideal day tour by bike for all skill levels.
This Bike tour starts & finishes in Saigon's District 1.

About 2 hours south of Saigon, the Mekong makes its dramatic final push to the South China Sea, at the end of its epic 4900 kilometre journey. Our tour weaves along canal paths and orchard trails, across ferries that sometimes only fit half a dozen people, and through the charming villages and towns that this area is known for.

During the tour you'll sample the food of the Delta, a region rich with fresh fruits and vegetables. Lunch is a specially prepared local market-to-table feast, served in a private home just for our group.

Come experience and taste the beauty and spectacle of the Mekong Delta on this full day bike adventure.

Please note: Due to the Annual TET holidays from February 4th to 7th 2019, our day tours from Saigon have a 20% surcharge.

Tour Itinerary

Meet at Passio Coffee shop

43-45 Ho Tung Mau, District 1
The cafe is opposite the Bitexco Tower on Ho Tung Mau street - Please refer to the map and link provided further down the page for more details. If your hotel is located inside District 1 (city center) then we can offer a pick-up service, please provide your hotel information when booking.

The tour will depart at 07:30am. We will board our private, air-conditioned van for the 80km ride to the Delta. Don't forget, bring your camera, sunscreen and comfortable clothing for biking.

Cycling Farm to Table Lunch, Local Ferry Boats
On arrival in the Mekong Delta the bikes will be set-up as you enjoy coffee or tea at a small village cafe. When the bikes are ready, we are off riding through stunning countryside on paved rural roads, past countless rice paddies, vegetable farms and orchards full of locally grown fruit.

The Mekong is Vietnam's most abundant agricultural region and it's also home to local artisans and weavers. We'll stop at a small shop to see traditional woven mats and visit a nearby cocoa plantation. The chocolate in this region is world renowned (in fact you can read about it in this interesting 2016 New York Times Style Magazine article).

As we head further south along concrete canal paths, the vegetation grows more dense and the streams start to look more like the larger tributaries of the Mekong. We will visit a busy marketplace without the crush of tourists, as well as many other surprise stops along the route.

Lunch will be served in a private home outside the village, with foods sourced from the nearby fresh food marketplace.

The day concludes with a private boat transfer along one of the region's beautiful waterways.

What our guests tell us...

Just a selection of our great reviews!

The “Mekong in a Day” tour was fabulous! Tinh, our guide, was very knowledgeable on Vietnamese culture and provided many fun facts throughout the trip...This tour was very authentic and you get to see/ experience many things that you would never normally get to. The provided lunch was fabulous and they are accommodating to any dietary restrictions. I highly recommend this tour- even on a backpacker budget! Amazing!

GeenaJanuary 2018

Taking time go out to the Delta and see several small villages by bike is an incredible way to immerse yourself in rural Vietnamese culture.

NancyJune 2018

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and take a bike ride through rice paddies and local farm. Our guide Sam made it fun. The bikes were excellent quality and all in all we had a great time. The food and info provided along the way was also top notch and as a vegetarian I was catered for very well.

MichelleMay 2018
