The morning will be spent cycling 14km across the countryside and rice fields. You will cross from island to island taking unusual bridges made from wood or bamboo. Another short boat ride will bring you to a small island where you will enjoy lunch in the home of a local family.
In the afternoon we will take another ferry to a village and continue riding to local villages discovering the arts and crafts of the area.
This is a great way to discover real Vietnam. We cycle mainly along quiet, flat, countryside roads with little traffic.

Our tour commenced at the bike shop with an intro by our guide. She spoke English well and it wasn't long before we began cycling through the streets of Saigon to our ferry. About 40 minutes in the boat took us to the first of 5 islands that we cycled through. The terrain varied as we cycled along a variety of roads, paths and tracks. We passed rice fields, water Buffalo, witnessed rice being processed, tasted rice wine, ate a local but tasty lunch and interacted with many locals. This trip offers a chance to get up close and personal with local Vietnamese. We cycled almost 30kms over flat but varied terrain.Great trip and highly recommended.
Wonderful trip, the guide is nice / helpful / nice
What a truly wonderful day we had! My sister and I did this Bike Tour together and had an incredible experience. We started the day near the Ancient Town in Hoi an where we met our guides for the day Quick nickname and Tam. They really made the day special. We then set off after boarding a wooden boat with our bikes. Once on the island we toured for 23 kms over old rickety bridges, through rice fields walk your bike through if you're not confident as the path is very narrow I fell into the rice field bike and all and ended up really muddy. Not fun at the time but we're laughing about it now. We saw water buffalos grazing, rice paper making ladies making grass mats, a rice wine distillery in one of the villages , how a bamboo fishing basket is made and then we were able to have a go at manoeuvring the basket boat in the water with the help of Sexy Lady! Nickname she was so entertaining we were in stitches. During all this we stopped for lunch in a village and we were able to choose between meat and vegetarian meals and finished off with some beautiful local fruit. Admittedly the day was challenging for us due to the heat and I have never perspired so much in my life. We were literally dripping the whole day. The guides were very easy on us and most of them do this ride 6 days a week so once I heard that I thought well I can definitely do it for one day. Although we we relieved when the day was over we were feeling exhilarated that we actually did it!
This was so dope. Long ride, but so rewarding.
Really enjoyed it. The guides were exceptional, went far beyond the call of duty.
Can't recommend this highly enough. 20 stars!
Nice balance of biking and transfers by boat. A couple of stops at local artisans mat weaving and rice liquor production. Both very interesting and with enough time to enjoy. the guides were super explaining what we saw and keeping us on a schedule and keeping us safe.
I've done several bike outings this one was more of a leisurely stroll slow pace and really no hills to climb.
Recommended for a good one-day outing and probably a great outing with youngsters.
