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
Wonderful tour. Beautiful countryside and our guide was fantastic, informative with excellent english, and the bbq dinner at the end was well cooked and extremely enjoyable. Can not recommend this tour enough.
We were the only two on this tour, plus our fantastic guide, who spoke good English. We got to see some fantastic countryside. Highly recommended
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!
A great tour! Our tour guide, Luke, was so friendly and showed us some amazing places. Would definitely recommend
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.
Definitely would not recommend this to anyone. No helmets supplied (despite this being on the voucher), rode through busy street in town at start of ride (which was not planned as we had young children on this tour and booked this for a "countryside bike tour through rice fields") then got on a small boat for a 'riverside cruise and BBQ' (on an uninhabited riverbank opposite where the bike ride ended with no hand washing or toilet facilities and food cooked on a portable pot of coals on the riverbank). Only drinks available with dinner were beers as we had used up our one bottle of water already (mostly to wash our hands). Then had to re-board the boat for a 40 minute ride back to Hoi An with NO LIGHTS - at night! Luckily we found the humour in the situation and made it home in one piece.
We have done other bike tours in other countries that were the highlight of our trips, but this was memorable only because of how bad it was. Our kids joked we were never going to survive the night and, judging by the non-existent safety and hygiene standards, this may have been a possibility.
Both our guide and the boat driver were trying their hardest but this tour is not at all the professional standard we have come to expect from Viator.
