This was a great day for my oldest son (20years) and me (45 years). Riding was easy, mostly flat and pleasant even though it was hot. We had two university student guides who spoke good english and were really enthusiastic. Both travel in a long way to do this tour for free and were very generous with their time. The... More

We took the 1/2 day Kim Bong Village bicycle tour and visited a working boat building village, a lovely family that makes rice noodles, and another that makes sleeping mats. The cycling is slow & easy which gives you plenty of time to take it all in. The main attraction is interacting with the students while visiting the local villages.... More

I did the Kim Bong 1/2 day biking tour. I think we each spent like 50,000 dong (for the ferry and donations to the people we visited) and an additional 30,000 dong for the bike ride, but otherwise free means free, as our guide said. I love spending time on the beach and seeing some of the tourist sights in... More

Tu and Xuan (Fletcher) took my 11-year-old son and I on a free tour of Tra Que village - we did a cooking class at Baby Mustard while we were there. They were the perfect tour guides - attentive, considerate, generous, interesting, funny. Would recommend highly. Thank you, Hoi An Free Day Tours.

Given this is a free tour (except a few dollars for expenses) it is of very high quality. Guides are very enthusiastic and genuinely want to chat to you. Not as well organised as a paid tour but still definitely worth it.

We did the Kim Bong Village tour with our fantastic guide Hai. The cost of the tour was extremely low and covered the ferry, bike hire and a small contribution to the village community. We were very impressed right from the first few minutes as the bikes were of very good quality and Hai ensured we had very few left... More

Booked tour for 29th June 2adults 2children. Met our tour guide Hong in morning and straight away made us feel very comfortable. Our group consisted of all Australians and we had a ball the moment we rode off. Bikes we like new and my children had no problems riding around Hoi An. Hong took us to places you wouldn't find...

I'm incredibly late writing this, I did the tour back in April after hearing about it when asking a fellow traveller where a hostel was, and I'm glad I did! It was incredibly relaxed, and we went to places I wouldn't have thought were there if I hadn't done the tour. Our tour guide Thu was great, incredibly friendly and... More

If you're in Hoi An and you want a free tour of Vietnamese culture (a 50,000 Dong Donation is asked) then this is right up your alley. Hong is a brilliant tour guide, very informative, loves a good joke and best of all a friendly smile. Soaking up the sun on a bike in beautiful Hoi An and beautiful people... More
