What people are saying about Hoi An

The tour was very well organized and we got what we expected. We were picked up at the homestay on time and arrived at the ticket office on time. We had to buy our tickets there ourselves. Our guide was very funny, had a nice chat with us on the car ride and informed us a bit about the temples (however, guides from other groups gave more detailed information). We had a short time to take photos and got to watch a show at the end. Lunch was very simple with a vegetarian option. The boat ride was nice, but you could have saved yourself this experience as it was only about 20 minutes from Hoi An. All in all, the tour was worth it, because the temple complex is really worth seeing.

This was one of the highlights from our trip to Hoi An. I would highly recommend, as it’s a great way to see where the locals purchase their fresh food daily. The coconut boat tour was really long and a great way to see the local area. The cooking class was definitely the standout, making some traditional dishes and then getting to devour them! We had two local chefs assisting us throughout the experience.

Amazing experience. Lovely people, very welcoming and helpful and we were really looked after. So much nicer than the big group places. Fantastic cooking school too…highly recommend when in Hoi An! We had So much fun!!!!!!! Thank you :-)

Barry is the best tour guide in Hoi An. He told us many interesting things on our way to and in My Son. He took care of us and I had a wonderful time. As the cream on the top He sang great karaoke for us.

All around excellent tour. The cooking class was 10/10 so the basket boat, massage, market tour were all bonuses and equally wonderful. The guides were kind and efficient.
