As your guide takes you weaving through the canal trails and orchard paths, across ferries that sometimes only fit half a dozen people, and into the charming villages and towns that this area is known for, you can leave the worries and cares of the big city behind.
As much an eating tour as a biking tour, the fresh farm-to-table cuisine of this area will delight, as will your friendly, welcoming homestay hosts. Come and see why the Delta is truly the rice bowl of Vietnam.

Pedal flat roads and canal paths with stops to sample locally grown fruit and speak to friendly locals.
