“Great diversion for the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We love Hoi An - the beach, the markets, the food but we were looking for a different diversion. The boat trip down to the Carpentry Village and then the casual saunter around the various manufacturers was a great experience. The kids enjoyed the wander and the places were a great place for photographs. Enjoyable.

“Old world methods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great way to see how boats are built using traditional methods (with the help of a few modern tools) Even the electric band saw they use to make boards out of the logs was really interesting to see. Get a good sense of the old world methods of making boats and Hoi An Free Tours takes you there to explain everything.
