Unforgettable tour experience

We wanted a tour that would give us an authentic experience of Vietnamese life, traditions and culture. This tour didn’t disappoint! We had an unforgettable day on our tour with Ben, he was warm, welcoming, answered all our questions and had so much local knowledge to share.
We feel very privileged to be able to visit peoples homes and have an insight into their various crafts; weaving, rice flour milling, organic farming. This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to vietnam!

We had a fantastic family afternoon trip with Ben and both drivers. We are a family of 5 with 3 older boys so we had 2 army jeeps with them in one and myself and my husband in the other with Ben . It was all really interesting and fun visiting local families in the countryside and also participating in some activities. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Hoi An to do this trip and experience the local culture.
Great experience!

I’ve been living in Vietnam for a while and know some local people myself, but when my mom has came to visit me i decided to take this tour, to show her life and culture of local people. And i didn't regret! Our guide, Ben, was very nice. He gave as a ton of interesting and useful information (even for me), answered all the questions, made a photos and prepared nice video at the end with map of all places we visited. The program is well developed and easy to follow. I would recommend this tour and our guide Ben to anyone who visit Vietnam for the first time or who living here for a while and want to know more about this country.
That one ☝️ from my husband)
And from me:
The tour is great. I had some questions while booking and Ben helped me to solve all the issues I had. And when husband and mother-in-law came back they looked very happy, joyed and had a great impressions after the tour, which they shared with me after.
I’m happy that we choose that tour.
10/10 would recommend this to everyone!

We had a great time with our wonderful and friendly guide Ben. His local knowledge was fantastic and he was always able to answer any questions we had about the sights or Vietnam in general. We had a great time and it was such a nice way to see a bit of the local lifestyle.
