Had the best experience with this tour. Loved the knowledgable tour guides and loved even more that they were university students. Treated me like a friend and we even went out to lunch after. Nice to see some spots outside the touristy Hoi An. Thanks to Trang, Cuc, Summer, and Hue for a wonderful tour!

We loved this half day cycle tour where you get to see so much in such a short time. Learn about boat building and mat making, visit a family temple, have a go at making rice paper and go on the ferry, plus it supports the local communities you visit. The students are great company and the small size means... More

This really was something that little bit different. We used bikes provided by our hotel and set off to the meeting point in Hoi An. The students introduced themselves before we headed off on the tour. There were a few groups going at the same time, but our group consisted of 5 people plus 2 students (Michael and Dieu). We...

For fresh air and lush views jump on your bike and head for the countryside surrounding Hoi An. The Hoi An free bike tour hops on a boat and you find yourself amongst stunning scenery - rice paddies, farmers and water buffalo. The best bit about riding in Hoi An is it's all flat, easy and relatively quiet so even... More

This was a fantastic morning, it started with us meeting our tour guides, three young local female students, they went out of there way to get to know us, we knew this was going to be a great tour before it even started thanks to their attitudes. The cost was 50,000VND per person, this covered the cost of the ferry,... More

We recently went on the half day cycle tour. The weather was a bit dull but perfect for gentle exercise. We went on the ferry to a local village, saw a variety of local crafts as well how local people lived in very poor conditions. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see some of the real... More

its hard to put into words how wonderful this tour has been. we had three very very lovely tour guides (Giang, Lien, Phuong) who spend their free time (some of them come all the way from Da Nang) to spend time with tourists (for free!!). They just like to get to know different people and cultures and you could see... More

We loved this tour so much - it was the highlight of our trip in Hoi An! Yes, they ask for 50,000VND per person for fees (the ferry and to support the villagers whom you visit on your tour). It's a small price to pay, and well worth it. The island we went to is really quaint - I would... More

Two 20-year old college students led our group of 4 tourists through some neighborhoods, homes, and shops on the outskirts of Hoi An. It was all fun and interesting. I expect that comercial tours do something similar but this is a way to avoid the cruise-ship set of tourists. The organization could be a bit more precise if they called... More
