“Fishermen and the Waterways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Hoi An Eco-Tour is a great and environmentally friendly way to see of Hoi An. We joined the Fishermen and the Waterways Tour, which lived up to the expectations we had beforehand. The crew was great, as was our guide, Jack Tran. On the river we met up with local fishermen (and women), and we all had a turn at trying their way of fishing. The highlight of the tour was when we paddled basket boats through the coconut-palm waterways. On board we also enjoyed a nice meal of fresh seafood. Hoi An Eco-tour is a company with great respect for nature and sustainable tourism, who can also offer fun, memorable tours!

“Fantastic Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A huge Thank you to Cuc, Em, Do, Bai and Sinh for a brilliant time. My partner and I went on the fishing and waterways tour and had an absolutely fantastic time. The team were great fun and made the experience all the better. We learnt about river fishing as well as learning to cast the nets. Got to paddle the basket boats through the river coconut forest and learnt some interesting facts about the American and Vietnam War. The guys looked after us well. At the time of the trip I was 20 weeks pregnant and they really looked after me, making sure I got on and off the boat safely. After learning about the locals homes and fishing we had a fantastic lunch on board - the food just kept coming and coming! I will definitely be recommending this tour to all my friends, family and even customers! Thank you again!

“Special oppurtunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I would definitively recommend this trip to anyone who loves to get in touch with the real part of the city you are visiting. The food served is excellent and the crew we had was friendly, funny and informative. We learned how to cast a fishing net with the help of an experienced fisherman and his wife. On top of that we also had the opportunity to ride in basket boats and visit a local woman's house. She very kindly invited us onto her patio and served us coconut and rice crackers with green tea. It was an amazing experience and a very special opportunity.
This trip is great for all ages!
ENJOY!

“Great, interesting and worthwhile tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We did the Fishing and Waterways tour with Hoi An Eco Tours, and had a ball. The guys on the boat are not just great fun and entertaining, but they take care to ensure you get on and off the boat safely. We were taken out onto the river where we met up with some fishermen who showed us how to throw a circular net; then we all had a go. Afterwards we hopped into basket boats and were paddled into an amazing area where palm trees grow in the water, and then given tea and eats at a local home, and a walk through the village. After that we went to another beach and practised with the fishing nets again, played beach cricket, and had a go at deploying the large submersible fishing nets. The crew made us a fabulous meal on board. We had a great day and would recommend this tour to everyone.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We did the "Fishing and the waterways" tour with Jack and his crew. Me and my friend are writing a paper about sustainable tourism and Jack invited us to join one of his tours. It was great fun but we also learnt a lot!

We started of by learning to throw fishing nets, then we went on a basket boat ride, visited a local village, learned to throw some more nets and other methods to catch fish. At the end we had a grat lunch on the boat.

The crew was very nice and funny! They made us lots of things from coconut leafs and even let us steer the boat.

Seeing how the locals live is really interesting. They are very focused on sustainable tourism and try to make better living conditions for the people living in the village. Jack is from the village himself and his parents also work for him.

I would highly recommend going on a tour with Hoi An Eco-tour!
