“Trip of a lifetime! Biking through the Mekong Delta with Le Dien Chau as our guide!”This was truly the most wonderful adventure with a group of seven of us cycling from Saigon, off the beaten track, through the Mekong Delta, crossing paddy fields and travelling through banana groves. Chau was our wonderful guide who, through his friendliness and charm acted as the perfect link between our group and the local people we encountered on our travels. We were even all invited to a join a local farmer's wedding party with Chau acting as our interpreter! His local knowledge of both the countryside and delicious food, made us feel as though we were getting to know the real Vietnam and we all ended our trip very sad to leave both the country and Chau. But we definitely will return! Thanks again Chau! Would highly recommend Countryside Adventures to anyone with an adventurous spirit.Visited January 2017
