On arrival in the Mekong Delta as the bikes are set-up you may enjoy coffee or tea at a small village cafe. Soon we are off riding through the serene countryside on quiet, paved rural roads, past countless rice paddies, vegetable farms and orchards full of locally grown fruit. Our tour weaves along canal paths and orchard trails, across ferries, through the charming villages and towns full of friendly faces. Along the way, we’ll stop at a small shop to see traditional woven mats and visit a nearby cocoa plantation. We will ride through two very traditional local markets with fresh fruits and vegetables from the region, as well as the recent catch of fish from local rivers and streams.

Stop At: Vĩnh Kim, Châu Thành District, Tien Giang, Vietnam

As we head further south, rural roads give way to concrete canal paths and the vegetation grows denser and many of the streams start to look more like the large tributaries of the Mekong. We will visit the largest wholesale fresh produce market in the region, see indoor fresh-water shrimp cultivation, and stop at a beautiful traditional temple of the Cao Dai religion.

An immersive experience in the Mekong Delta with Grasshopper Tours. Our guide Klas was a gem adding to the beauty of the region and friendly locals. The ride portion of the tour is 25km at a gentle pace with plenty of stops to refresh and take photos. The lunch at the completion of the bike ride was fabulous and the boat ride was a relaxing way to end a long day. Everything is taken care of by Grasshopper Tours including bikes, helmet, food, water, refreshments etc. The bikes are of high quality and well maintained. This tour is a great way to experience the Mekong Delta.

This was one of the most amazing cycle rides I have done. I had two brilliant guides who took me to all the tucked away places along the route including:a fish market, mat weaving, cocoa farm boat down the Mekong River and an amazing lunch. Brilliant trip

This was a great way to really see and explore the delta. The tour company, Grasshopper Bike tours, is well known locally. My guide was excellent, and we had a great bike ride. It was hot and sticky no surprise, but its flat as a pancake. The lunch, served at a local person's home, was delicious. If you want to see the delta doing something somewhat physical, take this tour.
