Detailed itinerary

8:30 AM - 12:00 PM / 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM

You can opt for either the morning tour which begins at 08:30AM and ends at 12:00PM or the evening tour that lasts from 4:00PM - 7:30PM.

You will be picked up by our guides at your accommodation and taken to the green, clean and picturesque Tra Que vegetable village where most of the vegetables and herbs you find in dishes served throughout Hoi An are grown. Here you can get your farming skills on and pick your own veggies - which will later be used for lunch/dinner. Don’t be afraid to get your hands muddy!

You will then get on a bicycle and ride through this tranquil village, past rice paddies, gardens and ponds and watch as the local farmers cultivate, care for and harvest their produce. Not only that, but there will be lots of water buffaloes lounging about in the mud and if you’re feeling adventurous enough, you can even try ride one. The photo opportunities will be endless.

Next, you will get to paddle a sampan (wooden fishing boat) along De Vong river and here you’ll have the opportunity to get your fishing skills on as you join local fishermen to catch fish using traditional traps. These too will be used for your lunch/dinner. But before your meal, you will make one last stop at a Japanese graveyard and learn about the historical connection between Hoi An and Japan.

For lunch/dinner, you will get to sit down with a lovely local family and cook with them using the ingredients we collected throughout the tour, all the while chatting about what the rural life is like, learning about their lifestyles, traditions and etiquette. By 12:00/7:30PM, we will have you back to your accommodation safely. Not only will you have amazing memories and photographs to take back home, but your tummy will be satisfied too!

My Husband and I had the privilege of testing out a new tour that should be offered in the near future. I would call it " A sneak Peek into the local's life". The tour had a little bit of everything, we cycled around the rice fields, learn about the farming, rode a Buffalo, caught some fish with a local fisherman and enjoyed a nice local meal prepared by a local family in their home. It was really nice and a lot of fun! The food was good and the guides were great! Thank you TinTin, Man and Coco Tree, we had a wonderful time with you guys and I hope you get to offer this tour in the near future! If you are looking for a relaxed tour that doesn't feel touristy and overly organized like a lot of tours, you will definitely enjoy this one!
