Susannah Phillips and Haley Johnson from Australian

Thank you so much! We had a fantastic time cycling through the Mekong. Tha was the perfect Guide, friendly, helpful and always smiling. He took excellent care of us and made sure we were safe and happy all the time. The food was fantastic! We got to try lots of food we had never had before. The bikes were amazing quality and stood up to the sometimes rough conditions. The only dissapointment was not seeing the floating market as it was closed, but we loved the extra long bike ride that we had instead. We would defintenly book another tour with Vietnam Backroads. I will recommend on Tripavisor as I think Vietnam Backroads dose an excellent job. Thank you very much! 31 Dec, 2017 - 01 Jan, 2018

Thang and Loi was fantastic and it was wonderful to see so much of the rural area that we never would have been able to see on our own. Thang was knowledgeable and kind and funny and answered all of our questions, and he took extra time to show us more based on our interests. I would love to come back and do it again. A thoroughly enjoyable tour. Thang were an excellent guide. Very friendly, informative and helpful. Loi, our driver was an excellent. One suggestion- A local map showing the town and village on the tour would help. The home-stay was beautiful. We were looked after very well. I highly recommend this tour. 26-27 Dec 2014

MichËle Hess party from Switzerland

We enjoyed the tour very much and we enjoyed riding a lot. As we were only a group of friends, the trip was very flexible. It would have been cheaper with more participants. Dat knew a lot to tell, This was great! We have an excellent dinner!! We love all the fruits!. A little disappointed about the floating market. I expected there would be much more boats selling their staff. Good mix between cycling and showing things, like rice fabric etc. It was very nice. Excellent guide with a lot of knowledge about the country. It was nice to eat places where the locals go for their lunches well. Really good food! 1-2 Jan, 2015

Rose party from Australia

We did a 2 day cycling tour of back roads in the Mekong. Our guide, Nghi, was incredibly friendly and helpful. He tailored the tour to what we wanted to see and do, and also how far we wanted to ride. Riding along tiny back roads really got us in touch with local life in the Mekong the routes we took were interesting and diverse, and we got to see local farms, schools and villages. The food was excellent! We loved eating at little local places that the locals also ate at. The bikes were great and our driver was also really helpful and ready to pick us up and whisk us off to the next destination. The homestay where we stayed overnight was also very peaceful and relaxing. I couldn't recommend this trip more. Thank you for providing such and excellent service, and being so helpful with the booking process. Kind regards, Rose Chesworth, PhD Candidate Addiction Neuroscience Laboratory Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health Cnr Genetics Ln & Royal Pde. 2016

Jay Chapman from New Zealand

We had an excellent two days cycling. Dat was very informative & helpful. The distance we traveled were perfect- not too little + not too long. We feel very privileged to have the opportunity to see so much of the Vietnamese countryside on this trip. On a bike we could appreciate so much more detail- the sounds +the smell etc. Overall this was a fantastic trip. 03.09.2014

Jamie & Shawn McDonough From Australia

Deborah McDonough's Party from Australia

Great to see local villages. Can see a lot more on a bike than on a bus. The boat trip was great too. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. We will recommend this trip to others. It was very worthwhile and a highlight of our trip. The homestay was lovely as were the places we had lunch and rest stops. December 11th, 2013

Joan Wright Howie party of 9 from Australia

Hi Ms Hue, Congratulations on providing a wonderful bike tour. We had a fantastic time in the Mekong Delta. Van and Loc were both great tour guides and the flexibility of the tour meant that it catered for the needs of the children really well. From start to finish we felt well cared for and could trust that we were in good hands. The hotel pick up was smooth, the drive to the Mekong was comfortable and fun. Lock provided a great commentary as we drove along giving us information about the city, people, culture and what we could expect from the tour. When we arrived to meet Van and pick up the bikes we were amazed a how organised you all were with the bikes labelled for each person. The safety information was clear and we were soon on our way. It was fantastic to head down a tiny lane way and explore the back roads of the area. We would never dare to venture into such unknown and strange places. Soon we were looking into the lives of the locals as we passed by people's homes and farms. We loved stopping for fruit at the road side stalls and tasting food we'd not trust ourselves to buy without a guide. The lunch venue was superb with much more food than we could eat. We enjoyed the afternoon ride and getting onto the really tiny streets and lanes. The river crossings made the whole experience quite an adventure. Our accommodation was great and an opportunity to make spring roles with the host was fun. We enjoyed the evening sitting outside but found the beds a bit too hard for our comfort. Breakfast was good with options providing something for different tastes. The visit to the sweet shop was an interesting experience for the children and we enjoyed tasting different treats. It was good to get back on the bikes again and continue our ride. When the youngest became tired a motor bike ride was a welcome relief. Van and Lock did not seem to find it any trouble to help out when needed and adjust the trip to meet the changing needs of the children. We also enjoyed the conversations we had as we rode along with both Van and Lock who were most informative and interesting to talk with. Some of us would have enjoyed being able to ride further, but needed to cater for other who got tired and were affected by the heat. The only real challenge on the journey was the heat. It meant we needed plenty of stops for drinks and it was challenging riding in the hot sun. The only solution to that issue would be to come again in the cooler months to do another bike tour and discover more of the Vietnam Backroads. Thanks again for a wonderful experience we'd be glad to recommend your tour to others Joan PS I believe you've recently been married - congratulation!

Wayne party of 5 from UK

We are now back in England. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day adventure and want to thank you for organizing. It really was the highlight of most of my family’s holiday. We felt very looked after and would like to commend our driver and guides. My family especially enjoyed Harry’s company and his commitment to making sure we were safe and having a very good time. We had no areas of complaint as everything was so good – bikes, itinerary, guides etc. The only tiny thing we would have changed is that we would have eaten lunch on day 2 in a local Mekong Delta restaurant to sample their food and hospitality however that would have been our personal choice and the lunch we had was very adequate Again, thanks to you, we would certainly recommend your services and use you again if we have the opportunity. 14 - 15 July 2013 Best Regards! Wayne

Marcel Solar party from Canada

It was such a great experience to travel the Mekong Delta with our guide Nghi! We will never forget the trip, it was amazing. Send special thanks to Nghi again! 25 - 26 Mar 2013

William Schlei party from Saigon British International School

Thanks again for leading us on yet another marvelous trip cycling in the Mekong. Our relatives from the Bahamas absolutely loved it. They felt it was the highlight of their trip to Vietnam and Thailand, bringing them closer to people and culture than any other experience. Thailand is called the Land of Smiles, but for them, Vietnam won the comparison. They'll never forget the calls of "hello!" from children along the roadside, and the families who showed us their farms and homes. As well, the food at all the places you brought us was excellent. Superior to the up-scale Mekong Lodge, with its cooking classes, which we chose in place of your recommendations. Your support team was always there when we needed it, and there were some hot and tired moments when some needed a ride in the bus. It's really great the way you accommodate riders of such different abilities in the same trip. I need to pick a weekend for a trip in the Fall when we get back to school. I'll see who's interested and email you to set a date. I expect quite a few of the teaching staff will want to come. Thanks again! It's always great to ride the Vietnam Backroads with you. 29 - 30 April 2012

Jayne Anderson from Saigon Riverside School

Hi Van, We had a great time on our Delta ride and we all enjoyed the experience. The accommodation was great and we all learnt a lot from the valuable experience of your guide, Mr Loc. We are all keen to start to planning our next trip out of HCMC. Thanks for your organisation Cheers Jayne, Noel and friends. 02 Nov 2011

For those of you guilty of being AP1 and AP2 Campus teachers, I will hopefully secrete all of my photographs temporarily on the M-drive, where you can then revisit a fuller pictorial montage of our weekend jaunt. So a link to these photographs will soon be pedaling your way in a school email. Thank you again for helping to create a deeply memorable and laughter-filled weekend. Thank you again for helping to create a deeply memorable and laughter-filled weekend. May all of the bumps on your future road be small ones, with safe and steady travelling for the half term holiday. 30 Oct 2011.
