We were lucky to be in Hoi An last Thursday (tours do not run every day) and joined a group led by the lovely Li, a student who is practicing her already very good English. The agency rented bikes for my husband and me ($1.50/day!), and we loaded the bikes onto a ferry for a brief ride to a rural island. We biked to a shipbuilding yard, a home "factory" where they make rice paper, another where sleeping mats are made, and a local temple. Li was happy to explain rural life, and we were given the chance to make the rice paper and weave the mats. The little money collected goes to pay for the ferry, and give to the local community. Other than that the tour is free! We were a small group of young folks from the UK and Germany; my husband and I were the oldest by about 40 years. But the biking is easy, the company was great, Li was a delightful guide, and the tour overall is terrific. The other best thing in Hoi An is the Hoi An Food Tour, run by a sister organization.
