The tour was fantastic. I really enjoyed all of the places we visited on the tour. The tour guide Xuan Thong Thai was really informative and knowledgable. I don't think I would have experienced or seen the things that I did see if I had not participated in the tour.

A great experience including ferry ride and visits to 3 local artisan producers. Low key and relaxed and seemed very ethical. Great to leave the town for a morning and enjoy the countryside by bike. Lovely unrushed pace and our guide was very friendly, interested in talking about a wide range of topics - really enjoyed the discussions.

I can highly recommend the hoian freetour! It was an extraordinary nice experience. You go to Kim bong Island by boat and cycle around on the Island to visit different places. The students (guides) werden very lovely and kind and explained everything you asked for with. They really take time so you can enjoy the impressions you get. Thank you... More

I can't recommend this highly enough. You take the ferry to Kim Bong village and are shown around by students wanting to practice their English. They show you the real life of local villagers making boats, sleeping mats, rice noodles, etc, the way they have for centuries. A small donation is split amongst the villagers. Fletcher was amazing. We had... More

The families you visiting a beautiful and accommodating and the variety of stops is excellent. We were doing it in 36 degree heat which wasn't ideal but the families provided refreshments and fans which... More

Ms Nguyen Thi Dieu was our guide for the day. For 50,000 VND which all went to supporting the local businesses (I know because we handed it to the people personally) it was a really amazing experience. We got to see the carpenters at work, and got a go at making noodles and straw mats. It was a really fun... More
