What to expect
Following hotel pickup in Hoi An by minivan, you'll receive a safety briefing along with a bicycle. Then ride off into the countryside with your guide, stopping to snap photos of the rural views along the way. You'll pedal into Tra Que, a village known for its herb and vegetable farming. Explore the gardens and meet local farmers while you learn about organic techniques used to grow produce consumed around Hoi An. If you'd like to participate, join in on activities like hoeing, transplanting, watering, and fertilizing with seaweed.  Then continue by bike through rice fields and alongside shrimp farms, duck farms, bamboo, and working livestock. On arrival at the home of a local farmer in the Cam Thanh ecological village, learn about daily life while you try your hand at traditional rice farming. You might learn to plow the fields with a water buffalo or even take a ride while you discover time-honored methods of irrigation. After a local lunch, relax with a therapeutic foot massage. Then you're off for a buffalo cart ride along the rice paddies. In the afternoon, transfer by minivan to Phuoc Hai fishing village and join local fishermen aboard a boat. Watch a net-casting demonstration and venture into a coconut palm jungle to find out how to paddle a basket boat. Follow your guide on an eco-village stroll and hear war stories from a former guerrilla soldier who fought during the Vietnam War (American War) that raged for two decades. Returning to the boat you'll reach a beach and enjoy Vietnamese traditional snacks on board with a cold beer or other beverage. Before minivan transport back to your hotel, watch the sunset behind Phuoc Hai fishing village as fishermen return to the ocean.

Excellent organization, outstanding guides, a highlight of the trip
We experienced the Hoi An Eco Tour with Jack Tran Tours, and its cheerful and enthusiastic guide, Mary. It included cycling, exposure to agricultural practices, where we hauled water and hoed, as well as a ride on a water buffalo, a wild ride on a basket boat and a visit to a fisherman’s island, along with participation in a dance and song, complete with costumes and oars, finishing with lunch on the boat. All along, Mary’s explanations and great sense of humour kept us going, along with her insights on village life, and local food products. All of this gave us terrific confidence in this tour company, which is very well organized and trustworthy, good value for the money, too.

Educational, Fun & Heartwarming
Dec 2019
This was a wonderful experience to have while it was also very educational. Our guide John spoke good English and really shared a lot of local information on the history of farming and Vietnam. I was very impressed by how well organized the whole process was of the tour. The farmers who show us what to do were so hard working and amazing in all aspects. They explained things clearly, while remaining happy in every moment with us. We felt welcomed and taken care of in a family home. The meal prepared for us by the farmer Nhi and his wife, was delicious and quite a lot of food for just us two! This was a very heartwarming experience but also one where I feel the farmers and the guide deserve a lot more, so if you are able to make sure to take some extra cash to give to the farmers especially. They deserve a lot more then they get with all they do just to serve us as their guests. It was an enriching experience and I will never forget it. I was humbled by it and forever grateful to have crossed paths with these beautiful people.

What a great experience with John as our guide. He had interesting information that he shared and speaks english really well. We were picked up in a new limousine and transported to where the bicycles were. A really chilled but great tour to do, with lots off activities, cooking and eating involved.

Fun and well-organized!
Dec 2019
We had a great time with our guide, Viet, who was not only extremely knowledgeable but spoke great English! He was funny, kind and everything was flawless and comfortable. The day was filled with activities yet the pace wasn't too fast. A great trip for anyone wanting to meet and interact with the locals and hear more about their daily country lifestyle. If you're hesitating, don't ⁠— we laughed endlessly and made lasting memories.

Sep 2019 • Couples
During our stay in Vietnam for a week already and traveling from north to south, we spent two days in Hoi an. The day we spent with John (Hoang) as our tour guide was so much fun and delightful that we can't imagine to have better tour guide. Cycling was pleasant and safe. Gardening in organic farm, buffalo cart trip, farming on rise paddles with riding on the buffalo, cooking class and eating tasteful results, relaxing feet massage, having fun on basket boat with Sinh, fishing, eating freshly prepared spring rolls by Giap with fantastic company of the boat crew Giap and Sinh and tour guide Hoang. We highly recommend such hole day trip. We've spent perfect day, meeting lovely people, having great activities and smiling and laughing all the time. It was a pleasure. Thank you!

Best Local Experience in Hoi An
Aug 2019 • Friends
We were recommended to take this tour by our hotel, boy am I glad we did! It was amazing!! It started in the morning with our guide John going cycling, we met a farmer in her garden and got insight into Vietnamese farm life and got to try ourselves! After we continued to cycle to a place where we got to ride in a traditional Buffalo cart. My favorite though is the second farm we visited. We met the locals, plowed with a buffalo, and used traditional equipment! With the ingredients from the first farm we made spring rolls and had a dinner that was truly organic. The second part was on the boat where we learned to fish the traditional way, spun in a banana boat, met a Korean war Guerilla (that was really special), and used the bigger net. We ended up catching some prawns and cooked them on the beach. There are some parts I didn’t include but only because we did so much!

Thanks again John for the wonderful tour. I recommend him as a guide, he has a great personality and good at giving information about the sites you’ll visit. Also he took a lot of amazing pictures of our trip. If you want to really experience Vietnam, I recommend this tour! It’s worth a day of your trip and I know I’ll remember this experience as a main highlight of our trip!

Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful trip with our guide Viet to the farm where we learned about how the rice is produced. We where welcomed by our friendly guide Viet who lead our small group very attently through the day. We biked along the fields to the farm where we went buffaloriding, plowing, making rice milk etc with the very friendly hosts. We all enjoyed ourselves.
A special thanks to Viet who told us all about the history of farming as well as current life. The trip ended with a delicious lunch at the farm.
