We visited Hoi An and decided to book with Hoi An Mates after reading the reviews online. I had to cancel one day due to a tummy bug and Chi rescheduled without an issue. On the day, we met Thien who was friendly and open. He showed us the main sights of the ancient town and explained cultural nuances. He took us to the most amazing herbal drink shop and afterwards we went for a drink together by the river where he shared more of his life and aspirations. What an amazing guy and fabulous tour. We loved it. Thank you Tien. See you next time. Zoe and Stuart

My tour guide Vi met me ahead of time and we spent 2 hours walking around few historical places in ancient town. He gave an in depth information and historical explanation about Hoi An history and also information about the places we visited. I would highly recommend anyone to take hoianmates tour if you decide to come to this beautiful town. Thank you for the wonderful afternoon tour!

This was a nice experience with our lovely student David. We recommend this as a good alternative to the commercial package deals that only cater to the travel companies' kickbacks. This way we had a lovely relaxed bike ride, evening boat ride amongst the tourist boats to dock in the old town. We rode back to our hotel afterwards.

Nhi and Nhan were great guides! Ancient tour can be overwhelming because there are very few signs and even fewer in English. With the tickets only giving access to 5 sites we didn't know how to prioritize. Hoian Mates walking solves all those problems! Nhi and Nhan had so much information about the sites and were able to direct us to the big, main ones. Highly recommend

Van and her partner, were both amazing! While mom and me had been in Hoi An for a few days before we took a walk in the Old Town with them, this walk was like exploring Hoi An with friends. We learnt some interesting facts about the place and its architecture, but sharing of our cultures was even more fun. This was definitely less touristy and a unique way to meet people and explore places.
