All you need to know

On our tours, we are guests at local and more conservative communities, including temples. Please allow us to ask you to dress more conservatively out of respect for the local community.

FOR YOUR OWN CONVENIENCE We recommend you wear light, comfortable clothing with a hat to keep the sun off your head. For footwear, we recommend closed shoes or sports sandals for maximum protection and control during your tour. For your own safety, we discourage the use of ‘flip flops’ as they often compromise the ability of the rider to control his/her bicycle on the tour. The liberal use of sunscreen is also highly encouraged.

We will never cancel a tour due to rain! The weather in Saigon Ho Chi Minh city is divided into 2 seasons which are rain and dry season. Rain season begins in May and ends by end of October. The rain in Saigon normally won’t last for long. In light rain, we provide ponchos to our customers and cycle on.

Joining one of our bicycle tours in Saigon Ho Chi Minh City is a wonderful refreshing adventure all year round. The activity of cycling (as opposed to walking), will always create a breeze to help cool you down. We are also aided by the fact that Saigon terrain is very flat and we cycle at a leisurely pace. In addition, plenty of cold drinks and rest stops along the way will keep you refreshed for the adventure

We pride ourselves on being an alternative to bring unique experiences by taking our customers to the REAL, urban vibrant local life on Saigon. As such, our tours do not go to typical mass tourism attractions like the Independent Palace, Post Office, War Museum etc. We travel into the local communities to places that are typically inaccessible to the average traveler. Please do not be concerned about duplicating location visits on your own during the rest of your time in Saigon Ho Chi Minh city.
