Hoi An Countryside Bike Tour Including Thu Bon River Cruise

Hoi An Countryside Experience: Bike Tour and Boat Cruise

From your tour meeting point, hop on your bike and follow your guide down back streets toward country lanes just outside of town. Then, take in the gorgeous landscapes of the countryside as your small group rides past emerald-green rice paddies and winding waterways. Stop at several of the villages dotting the area, chatting with locals and waving to children as you learn more about the lifestyle and culture in this region of Vietnam.

Next, follow your guide to the banks of the Thu Bon River for a boat cruise along the waterway. Admire picturesque views of the area as your small group rides toward one of the river’s small islands. After you disembark, enjoy a scrumptious barbecue feast that awaits you! While getting your fill of the local specialties, enjoy a gorgeous sunset over the river with bobbing fishing boats in the foreground.

Afterward, hop back in the boat and cruise along the river as you watch the last of the sun’s rays disappear behind the rice paddies. See the twinkling lights of Hoi An appear as you approach the dock, and then hop back onto your bike to make your way through the crowds at the bustling waterfront to head back to the heart of town.

We were very lucky that there were only two of us and our guide. He could not do enough for us and his knowledge is fantastic. The river cruise and barbecue finished the day perfectly. The guide took a great deal of care sheparding us around Hoi Ans busy streets!

An excellent tour. Our guide was very good, his English was quite good and easy to understand. The countryside was beautiful and it finished with a delicious barbecue. Sorry that we didn't get our guides name

Our guide Ha was THE best! It was fun to see the countryside by bicycle - even as a solo tourist. Ha was conversational and a true professional. The boat ride was nice and the BBQ was a FEAST -- don't make the mistake and eat before!

Great time and great to see a little of the countryside. Our only comment was that when you book ....and you print the receipt it states that you must reconfirm. This is tough and somewhat confusing since we paid the day before. So when we showed up at the Google Cafe no one was there. That is when I read the fine print about reconfirming. When I called the number on the receipt no one answered. Fortunately the chef who was at the cafe called Zoom Zoom and we were on our way....albeit 20 minutes later. Richard

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

Biking was leisurely and included beautiful scenery. Excellent tour guide, friendly, and spoke great English. The dinner was what you may expect on a camping trip; the food was very tasty, but family style servings and some eating with your hands...fun if you know what to expect. Bring water!

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

A great tour! Our tour guide, Luke, was so friendly and showed us some amazing places. Would definitely recommend

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2015

The tour was good- Luc the tour guide was fantastic and great value. The BBQ with the sunset was a little pedestrian.. We ate on a muddy bank surrounded by flotsam, detritus and cow manure!! Apart from that a worthwhile trip and the food we had was good.
