We had a great tour of the island and visited families who needed support. We were able to observe how they make a living in their homes. Michael and Janet our guides were knowledgeable and spoke good English. They also made it fun. I would highly recommend anyone to take the tour.

We had a fantastic bike tour 'off the beaten track' with our friendly guides Tuan and Van, who had excellent English skills and a wealth of knowledge about the Island and its history. I thoroughly enjoyed the flat, leisurely ride around the countryside past grazing water buffalos, farmers, and children playing. This tour exceeded my expectations, as we were able... More

Our guides, Van and Tra, were wonderful guides. They spoke very fluent English and showed our family part of Vietnam we would have had no way of experiencing on our own. We had an opportunity to see the daily lives of the wonderful and hard working families of rural Vietnam. Our experiences were enhanced by riding in a downpour towards... More

このツアーでは地元の学生さんにホイアン近くの農村に連れて行ってもらえます。 英語でわかりやすく説明してくださいます。 徒歩や地元のガイドさんなしではなかなか訪れられないところを見学でき、勉強になりました。 地元の人の交通機関である舟に乗るという体験もできます。 舟の代金、レンタサイクル代、寄付として多少のお金がかかります。 We can visit the village near Hoi An. Student Tour Guide explain many places clearly in English. I think the place we visited were so far and difficult to visit if we go on foot. We can experience riding on the boat which is the indispensable transportation of the local people. You need a little... More

The bike trip was our best experience in Hoi An. Our guide, Man, took us to a family temple, boat carpenter, rice paper maker, mat weaver and carpentry workshop. It was just me and two kids. The kids got to try the rice paper making and weaving. It was a lovely morning out, very relaxed, no hassling from anyone to... More
