          Great fun
          This was the best tour. Easy to find and organise yourself without a tour guide. Be wary of the people trying to get you on their boat on the walk down to Tin's. Kids loved the boat.

          Boat tour!
          A lovely little lady took us out for 45 mins. It was fun & she made it an experience to remember! They give you hats when you get in the boat which was a nice little touch.

          Biking was nonexistent
          The boat tour was fun. The cooking class was ok but everything was very oily and kept getting interrupted with phone calls and then I felt rushed. The bicycle portion never happened - I got dropped off at my hotel and realized this was missing. Dang - I feel like I got gyped.

          Fun tour run by professionals
          A fun outing for the family. The owner, Mr. Vu, is very outgoing and takes care to ensure his customers are happy. The boat rowers, who are also local fishermen, are very friendly and take their time to ensure their passengers are having fun. This is definitely a local business worth supporting!

          Great Experience & Lovely Family
          We had a very fun and enjoyable experience with Tin’s. He and his whole family were very kind and welcoming from the moment we arrived until we left. They provided us with hats and umbrellas while on the boat to protect from the heat, as well as cold water following. Plus an easy air-con pick up and drop off from our hotel. Proud to support a lovely family run business. A great and authentic experience - highly recommend Tin’s to all.

          Brilliant - highly recommend if in Hoi An
          Really enjoyed this experience! Got to go around the market & select the fresh produce. Then after a boat ride along the river we were able to learn some recipes! We cooked outdoors under a canopy with a lovely view over the river - it was a nice experience to cook outdoors like this 😁 The members of staff were super friendly and transport to and from the experience was included. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Hoi An 🧡

          best basket boat experience!!
          We has the BEST time, I contacted the lady by WhatsApp +84 93 582 89 81 and booked it directly with her - very fast and efficient. I messaged in the morning and everything was sorted for the afternoon! We cycled to the tour and the lady was on a motor bike near by to guide us through the streets, she was so welcoming and sweet - I can't recommended this family enough!! We loved the basket boat ride, there was some quiet calm areas, and other areas of entertainment, and my favourite part was the crab fishing, our boat driver was so good and even gave us a spin, a great price of 130,000 each for about an hours ride. Thank you!!

          Absolutely delicious food!! 10/10
          For a very very cheap price we ate SO much fresh, beautiful food - from spring rolls to Vietnamese pancake to beef pho and BBQ pork with lemongrass!! We collected all the food fresh from the market. Trang is so sweet and made sure we left the class bellies full to the brim!

          Hoi An cooking experience
          Our guide/cooking instructor, Tran, met us at our hotel on time with bicycles for us, We stopped at a local market to buy ingredients for our lunch, then we cycled through some lovely rice fields on our way to the river. The basket boat ride was entertaining if a bit touristy. We ate the lunch we helped cook while sitting by the river. Very pleasant way to spend a morning. The only thing that would have made it better was for her to give us copies of recipes or maybe a list of ingredients so we could replicate it at home.

          Fantastic
          Amazing trip. I went through the water coconut forest which I haven’t seen anywhere in the world. The most fanstastic part of the trip was the way they spinned the boat very skillfully. At the end of the trip, I was given a thrown made by a water coconut leaf. The trip was so much fun and joyful.

          Sunset boat ride
          Don’t know where to start… Me and my girlfriend decided in last minute to take this romantic boat ride. The lady took very good care of us showing us the river and the river dancers while the sun was coming down. The lady was very nice, didn’t play any price games on us and her english was good. Wouldn’t go with anyone else 👍🏼

          Delightful Basket Boat Tour
          Tin met up at the drop off for the taxi and escorted us back our boat. The trip took about forty minutes. I would recommend arriving early in the morning like we did to avoid the heat. We also saw a fish a with a net and a guy dancing in a boat.

        We went on the basket boat tour with Trang. She was very friendly and spoke good English. She and her family live in the village and she was able to answer many of our questions. She gave us enough time to enjoy the experience and to take photos. My daughter also enjoyed a bit of fishing. The area has become quite commercialized but it is nice to support the locals. We would definitely recommend going with Tin Basket Boat Tours.

        We had a great time on the boat with Tin. They were very flexible with the booking as we originally booked it for a day with heavy rain, but managed to swap it quickly and easily for a day earlier.
        The pick up and drop off was smooth, in a lovely car (despite our hotel not being on the original pick up list). 10/10 would recommend.

        A very lovely way to tour the river. We were picked up on time from our hotel, told where to go and provided with cold bottles of water which is always appreciated in the Vietnamese summer heat. Then, we were taken in a basket boat around the river at a nice leisurely pace which gives you enough time to appreciate the river's natural beauty and take pictures.

        The lady paddling our boat was lovely. She provided conical hats for us, an umbrella for shade and she took our picture at several intervals on the ride. Fishing for crabs was a definite highlight as well as it was quite fun and something we had never got to do before.

        I would definitely recommend this tour if you are looking to be able to do more than one activity in a day in Hoi An, this one was quicker and cheaper than most of the tours that include cooking classes, which my friend and I weren't very interested in, so this was definitely the perfect option for us. The only thing I think is important to note is that it is quite expensive to take a ride on a spinning boat (50k per person) and that's not included in the tour fee so take cash with you if you want to do that as well.

        Wonderful Basket Boat your with this family, we really enjoyed it. We cycled from our hotel to the little village which was nice to cycle around. The guy met us at his shop/house and we had water bottles handed to us on arrival. The boat trip itself was really good, not out in a massive group just you and your guide, it was nice and peaceful just enjoying the views and activity. Plenty of photo opportunities and you can pay a little extra to have a go on the dancing boats with the guys. Highly recommend this trip, they do offer free hotel pick up and drop off on request. Thank you so much to your wonderful family for a great morning on the basket boats.

        Amazing experience, Tin & her husband were so friendly & welcoming from the start. Tins husband was a great guide, full of life. We laughed the whole time on the basket boat, he made sure we caught a crab as well as getting to have a try at the fishing nets. Overall an amazing experience & i couldnt recommend this family business enough.

        The was a great host, very upfront about how much it cost and didn’t try and scam you, the business has been in her family for over 90 years. We sailed around the lake on the coconut boat and then stopped to catch some crabs which was fun. Would highly recommend this boat tour.

        We had an amazing time getting to ride through the beautiful coconut trees. Vu was incredible from beginning to end, making us feel welcome, while informing us about the history of the area and his business. We had a beautiful ride, a chance to crab fish, and ride a spinning coconut boat! I recommended this fun and beautiful activity for couples and families!

        Tin and his family were fantastic, so welcoming, happy and attentive. They really made us feel part of their family and we left as friends. Tin was great and was so much fun, he really made the trip for us. We tried our hand at crab fishing to begin with (catch and release) then saw the pros doing their basket boat dance (tips are a good idea for when they finish, anything from 10k upwards) then we saw the fisherman cast his net, try if you want and then we came back down the river to their house where we finished up with a coconut to drink. A very reasonable tour, 150k pp and it was worth every penny.

        The coconut river was beautiful to travel down in a basket boat and our tour guide was very fun and kind. There was a massive party in the middle of the river which was awesome to be in the middle of. We also got to go fishing for crabs with a rod which was fun and easy. Our tour guide gave us a chance to participate in all the extra activities across the river which cost very little (like basket boat spinning and fishing with a net).

        There is such a wide array of activities that the beautiful town of Hoi An (and surrounding areas) offer.

        THIS Coconut Basket tour is a must!Such a friendly family hosting this experience, leaving you with extremely memorable moments while consuming only a few hours of your day.

        Our captain Thu is an all-star, extremely animated and friendly. She will make sure you have the chance to go “Gangnam Style” listen to karaoke on the water and toss a traditional fishing net.

        I highly advise making this a top priority on your next trip to Hoi An!
