We could not fault the food. However, we were very disappointed that there was no one at the pickup point at the stated time and we needed to telephone for clarification. A young man eventually arrived and escorted us 500 metres back the way we had come. He did not take us along the paved path through the market, that we later used to return home. Rather we were required to walk through the fish market which was very wet and slippery. A senior with some difficulty walking, I found this unacceptable, given the distance and the fact that I slipped and fell heavily on my side! A very bad start to the evening that was spoiled by having to sit wet and smelling of fish the entire time. Beware, boat does not sail near the pretty lantern lit part of Hoi An. The time is spent cruising in darkness along a stretch that quickly becomes uninteresting with little to be seen! Not at all what I had expected! We were the only diners
This cruise was lovely. We’re so glad we did it. Even when the bus sent to pick us up couldn’t find our hotel and we had to call Vinh, the organiser, he and one of his staff arrived on Motos to take us personally to the dock. The dinner was magical. The view of the lanterns of the town and the night market is so beautiful from the water, and the boat itself is really cute. Our only complaint is that their “mocktails” looked like they still contained alcohol, like Midouri or Grenadine. After the cruise we told them we wanted to go to Old Town, so two of the staff took us there on Motos again, free of charge. A really wonderful experience.
A lovely and tasteful tour around the old city center of Hoi'an. I was the only one that took the tour for the evening. So had a one on one with my guide Ngoc. She showed me around several spots and ate about 10 different kinf of dishes. The food was great however there were some bizarre things to eat, like the boiled embryo duck egg, even so worth on trying if you like or dare. The white Rose dumpling restaurant was also a treat to be there, seeing all the ladies in dresses preparing the dumplings together on a big table. Very nice and tasty. Thanks for the food tour Ngoc Best regards Björn
excellent cruise with welcome drink and a wide spread of vietnamese cuisine all included!!!!!. worth every penny for the 2 hours we spent cruising along the Thu Bon river with great views all through. very convenient pick up and drop location. throughly enjoyed.
Pearl was an excellent guide and showed us many local Hoi An dishes. We would never have been able to find all these dishes on our own. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Pearl
