“Biking in the Mekong is a must do!”

We booked SinhBalo Adventure Travel from home having read the reviews on TA and our party of 4 adults opted for the 2 nights and 3 days cycling and boating around the Mekong Delta. From start to finish the whole trip was very well organised, professional and did exactly what it said on the tin. We were very pleased with the whole experience and trip.

We were picked up from our hotel with our driver and guide ( Hai ) who spoke excellent English and had a great sense of humour.We did a range of activities and the biking around the Delta was amazing and enabled us to visit places that we otherwise would have never seen. Hai was very informative and very patient with us as the opportunities for photos was endless and the many questions we asked of him. He was a pleasure to be with and added to our experience. The people along the way were amazing and shouted Hello and we were invited to local peoples home to watch them make baskets and cook rice paper etc etc. The school kids were friendly and wanted to practice their English. We did learn such a lot about life on the MD.

Mountain bikes were good with lots of gears for the many bridges. Seat was hard however. The cycling was really good fun and within anyones capabilities as its very flat and the guides are very patient.

Boat trips and visits to the floating markets also fabulous.

The hotel and homestay were also very good and the only criticism we all had was the mountain of wonderful food that we could not eat. We felt really guilty about that.

Overall a wonderful must do trip. Anyone can do this and the minibus backup was great and available if needed..
