Our guide Mr. Hoang was absolutely fantastic!!! He was so knowledgeable and it was incredibly enjoyable speaking with him about Vietnamese life. This was hands down one of the best tours my husband and I have ever been on. It was very well planned and organized and not gimmicky at all. Felt very authentic. I find that often times tours are our tourist trap to get people to spend money. This was not that. It was just fantastic. At the end of the day we were invited back to his home and met his wonderful family. His wife gave us a cooking lesson and helped us prepare some extra delicious foods. 10,000 out of 10! This is a must must do!! Thank you again Hoang!!
Great day-tour of Hoi An and the surrounding area

Our cruise ship was docked at Chan May port (09:00 to 17:00) and we had booked a tour of Hoi An and the surrounding rural area with Hoi An Eco Tourism. We had opted not to buy the port pickup permit, so we had to walk outside the port for pickup. It’s important to note that the first “Chan May Port” sign is still inside the port (some guides were waiting there), so you need to continue walking to actually get outside the port and find the other guides, without the port permit.

The tour was very well organized, and the guide spoke very good English. Despite our ship’s late arrival, everything went smooth and we got to see and experience so many things – farming activities, a buffalo ride, a basked boat tour and the city Hoi An. We also had a delicious lunch at our guides house.

We had a great day and would highly recommend this tour!
An awesome day out
