    We would like to book a one-day bicycling tour at the Cat Tien national park for 3 pax for Saturday, 11. November. We need bikes, but we don‘t need transportation or accommodation. Can you send us an offer?
    Best regards,
    Elisabeth.

      Dear Elisabeth. Sadly, we are booked up through November. In addition, we don’t rent bicycle so we are not able to assist. Please do some Google search and contact people who offer. Seriously, we don’t think anyone offers bicycle rental there.
