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

After traveling for nearly a week in Vietnam we reached Hoian and weren't too sure as where the remainder of our honeymoon was going to take us. Basically we stepped in so as to find something to do for the day possibly the one after. The local girl made a quick phone call and shortly after the owners arrived. Dzung... More

This is only my second review on Tripadvisor. The decision was to holiday in Vietnam. We had heard many good reports of the country. Now the question, work it all out on our own, has to be cheaper, or utilise the services of a tour agent. With limited time available, we opted for the tour agency to organise our trip... More

Great service from start to finish ! We started in Ho Chi Min city then continued to Hanoi then Hoi An - well organised and there was a delay with the flights and we got a personal call from Dzung to inform us, instead of getting an email notification, which was GREAT,because really, who looks at there emails when your...

Wow.... Talk about six star service. Leigh and Dzumi should be rightfully proud of their business and the service they provide to the visitors of Vietnam. My friend and I wished to see many facets of Vietnam. This included Ho Chi Ming City, Cu Chi Tunnels, Da Nang airfield,(Luscombe field), Long Tan Cross, and the Phong Na Caves. A travel... More

What more can we say that hasn't already been said about Zumi and her team. Excellent service from day one when we contacted Laughing Roo via email. Everything was impeccably organised. Zumi called once we arrived in Vietnam and every evening to ensure everything was running smoothly. I didn't meet Leigh, but spoke to him briefly about an issue and... More

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
