An amazing day! We loved the coconut boats and the fishing with the locals. The food for early dinner was delicious and plenty to share! We had a lovely tour guide and thoroughly enjoyed the day- a great day trip from Hoi An, with a variety of things that kept the day interesting

The experience was great! I went with my 6 year old and he thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing boat ride to the village. The highlight was really the basket boats where we rode on for around 45 mins before heading to lunch. Our guide Ngoc, was very friendly and Informative and took care of us very well. I would highly recommend this tour especially for families with young children who do not want a tour that’s too strenuous.

Our Guide Mr. Milk spoke very good English. He gave us options on the drop off point and asked is about any dietary requirements so the food , which was the best vegetarian food of our trip was tailored to our requirements and cooked fresh for us. We were even taken to the local market to choose the food we would have for our lunch. The trip itself was very good, a relaxing boat ride, then a fishing experience on the basket boat with local people, we then had a go at casting the fishing nets which was great fun, it really gave us a feel for the rural life of the people in the fishing village. Overall great and thanks to Mr. Milk for the stories on the boat about Vietnamese life and history.
