Amazing morning, couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The tour is operated through a company called Jack Tran tours, our guide Viet was very knowledgable and friendly. The local farmers you meet are also very friendly and make the experience even better - must do trip in Hoi An!

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Nothing was too much trouble and when two elderly people were incapable of riding bicycles to the farm we were taken by mini bus. Very experienced tour guide and farm workers/owners were incredible making sure that we learnt all aspects of rice farming. We would recommend this tour to all.

This half day tour was just the right amount of touring I need in one day. Some bike riding across fields, buffalo riding and rice farming, and a delicious filling meal at the end. We did get in the mud and do some rice farming the traditional way. It was fun, and you need to be prepared to get messy. They wash your feet and you get your shower at the hotel so it was all good. Lots of fun guaranteed. We showed a video to people back home in Australia and they want to go to Vietnam.
