We had an amazing time on the cycle tour. Our guide Diem was so informative, friendly and enthusiastic. She was constantly filling up our water bottles and giving us time to ask questions and take photos. We had a very fun ride in a basket boat with a local lady who was so funny and sweet. The cycling is very easy, suitable for all ages. The lunch with the local family was so so delicious. The best day I have had in Hoi An.
