The Laughing Roo Backstreets & Village Tour has been carefully designed to show you our favourite places without you getting sunburnt or rained on. As we drive slowly through the local area, we visit a range of places to help you gain a lasting impression of village life and enjoy the unique scenery around Hoi An. We stop along the way and take a walk through some well known and some not so well known places. After a short break at a village cafe for a coffee, soft drink or a beer, we board a private boat at the near by ferry terminal for a slow and enjoyable cruise on the Thu Bon River. At the end of the cruise we will arrive at a local restaurant on the banks of the river for a delicious set menu seafood lunch. If you don't like riding bicycles or motor bikes, then this is the best way for you to see around Hoi An. Duration is approx 4.5 hrs.. « less

Amazing people Leigh and Dzung are. They exceeded my expectations, especially when we were in country - always in contact with us to see how we were going and to advise of any changes to flights etc. Well organised and extremely quick reply to emails - they organised an memorable trip to Saigon, Hoi An, Hanoi, Halong Bay and Dalat....

Unbelievable service! Dzung is an Aussie and only too happy to help you with advice on all aspects for your stay in Hoi An from where to hire motorbikes, where to eat, which beach to go to, places to avoid, and all totally free of charge! Unfortunately, we didn't have time to do a tour with Dzung but we did... More

We went to laughing roo day tours by recommendation of a guide we met in Da Lat. They organised the best tour we ever had. We went snorkeling, speedboating and even when we were in Hanoi she (the guide) managed all our pickups for us. We booked a trip to Ha Long Bay with a booze cruise and went to... More

I would have to agree with all the other fantastic reviews concerning Laughing Roo. Dzung is the best tour organizer I have dealt with, prompt replies to emails, tailor made tours and all done very professionally. Being in the older age group we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Hanoi, overnight train trip to Sapa, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Nha... More

The team of Australian husband Leigh and Vietnamese wife Dzung will create a holiday to suit you. Dzung is a perfectionist and a human guardian... More

I have been in email contact for over 6 months with Dzung Le before we finally arrived in Vietnam and I have nothing but praise for Dzung Le (Zoomy) and her staff. Nothing is too much trouble. There were 6 in our party and we travelled from North to South Vietnam with Zoomy looking after most of our arrangements. What... More

Laughing Roo As the jet soars into the air and I take my last long look at the land which has been home for 5 weeks, I feel an unexpected sadness. I realize that this country and the people I met has captured a place in my heart. Thanks to Laughing Roo, my travel experience in Viet Nam from the... More

This was the first time I had ever used a travel company and I have been to a lot of places! I decided to email Laughing Roo because we were spending 5 weeks travelling through Vietnam (with a pop over to Siem Reap) and wanted to stay in Hoi An for 11 days as our 'chill out' part of the... More

Laughing Roo are absolutely amazing! I can't recommend these guys enough. Dzung & Leigh helped customise our 20 day Vietnam (bottom to top) tour, activities and places we wanted to see along with their personal recommendations. Every step of the way they would liaise with our tour guides and hotels to make sure everything was running smoothly. Everything was covered... More
